Wheaton College is not the first choice of many students. They choose it because the "reach" schools they dreamed of did not choose them. However, after four years, the majority of students wonder why they didn’t dream of Wheaton College from the start. Sure, you could let the dining get you down or never stop complaining about how there is nothing to do in Norton. However, the students who moan about these small things fail to see the far greater number of things Wheaton does to provide for its students.

Wheaton is unique because it challenges the stereotype that a liberal arts degree is not applicable to the real world. For instance, the Connections curriculum encourages students to study outside of their comfort zones by linking classes in different departments together. This prepares them for connecting their class work to their future careers in creative ways. The fabulous Filene Center finds a variety of ways to foster career callings for students through summer funding opportunities, workshops on résumé writing, and major connection seminars, just to name a few. The school’s success can be seen in the amazingly high number of national scholarships awarded to students, including three Rhodes Scholars in the past ten years.

Wheaton College shines in its ability to support students without resorting to hand holding, which is what results in such honors. What irks some students is that there is no stereotype to fall back on to define Wheaton College. It is not an exclusively "preppy" or "hipster" school. What’s wonderful about Wheaton is, because there is no stereotype to fall back on, students are able to forge friendships with other students they never would have noticed in high school. The one defining characteristic of students is their friendliness. Wheaton College is where promising students are transformed into scholars and better people along the way.
