5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our school thrives without having any Greek life. We have plenty of other student groups on campus that are very positive to the community.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of fan support and school spirit for all of the sports, and there seem to be a good number of fans at all the different sporting events. Alumni enjoy coming to sporting events and contribute largely to the school spirit. Although a Div 3 school, the teams all perform very well and have a high standing in all of the sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although the transition has been difficult, the community at Wheaton College is amazing and has made my transition much easier than it could be. The upperclassmen are welcomed with open arms, from the first step they take on campus with helpful moving crews, then all school assembly, and a parade of upperclassmen. Knowing what a great place it is as I do now, I would choose my school again if I did my college search once more. One of the defining characteristics of my school is definitely the strong Christian community coupled with rigorous academics, where we are encouraged to study hard and pursue our callings as Christian students, but also to view our studies as one part of our Christian life.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never once felt threatened, even as a woman.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not the best course variety, but profs are great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wheaton grads generally go on to do great things.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Residence life is well-loved by all at Wheaton.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Because of Wheaton's size (approx. 2400), many of our students are athletes in some form or fashion. If you see an extraordinarily big guy, he's most likely on the football team. Even if you aren't good friends with a varsity athlete, one of your friends is probably on a club or intramural sports team. It's fun to go to games and cheer on people who are not only your college's athletes, but also your friends or floormates. Granted, the turnouts at games aren't always the biggest or loudest, but the people who come to watch are usually pretty invested and spirited. Though I am not an athlete, every student athlete I know raves about the really tight-knit community that they find in their respective sports team. It really seems important and valuable to each of them. Often, because they are so tight-knit, it can be hard to get to know the athletes as a non-athlete, but such is life. Oh, and our athletic facilities are pretty solid, especially our sports and recreation complex.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really love Wheaton. It is such a friendly and supportive community, and that is a wonderful kind of place to be when you're engrossed in rigorous academics and lots of extracurricular/social activities. College is a place where you come to a better understanding of who you are and how you feel about the world, and I have loved being able to work through that growing process at Wheaton.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even though it's considered a conservative Christian college, there is a lot of diversity among the student culture, in both ethnicity and ideas. It is a great place to expand your knowledge through dorm room conversations alone, yet the classroom is even greater for learning. The professors are great at being available for help, but their classes are also challenging enough to allow for growth. Yet academics are not the only good thing about Wheaton. It's close proximity to Chicago allows students some very unique and informative experiences. The student life on campus is also great at developing the community as a whole.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The best things about Wheaton are the Professors and the courses. All the professors I have been under have shown real care and understanding for students. Many have a desire to keep having a relationship with you even after your courses with them are over. The student body can be a hit or miss I think. Even though Wheaton stresses community, it seems hard sometimes to have real relationships with people and I personally think there's some tension in the student body because of this.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at Wheaton College so far has been positive. The community is very strong, and the academics are excellent. The culture is a bit more competitive than I am, and the average Wheaton student is a very strong 'Type A' person, which does not describe me.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The words “For Christ and His Kingdom” resound through the air of Wheaton’s campus, defining Wheaton students and guiding the faculty. Statistically, Wheaton students are some of the most contented in the nation. Why? The main reason given for this love of Wheaton is, simply, the fellow students. Nowhere else will you find so many talented, passionate, genuine, and Christ-centered students gathered in one place. The people you find at Wheaton will inspire you. They will challenge you, teach you, and change your life for the better. Likewise, the professors at Wheaton are dedicated to educating the whole person. Yes, you will have to study at Wheaton. That's a fact. But you will also be given the tools necessary to use your hard-earned knowledge to make a difference in the world. The few students that express discontent generally are not at Wheaton by their own choice and are upset about the restrictions placed upon them.

The Wheaton College experience is completely unique. From a caring faculty to impressive academics, from studying and serving abroad to intense IM competition, great food, and crazy dorm life—this school offers it all. However, it must be mentioned that Wheaton is not for everybody. In fact, it is a school for a very specific group of people. Wheaton is a school for those who want to grow in their Christian faith, be challenged in every area of their lives, and impact the world in which they live. Indeed, in endorsing the Wheaton College motto, students truly to come to Wheaton “for Christ and His Kingdom.”
