Wheaton College is a very small community toQuite Bright
Wheaton College is a very small community to the point that opportunities feel limited.
Faculty and administration mean well and are very approachable but for things outside of basic education here at Wheaton, like employment and internships, they offer very little.

Also, the counseling center and the school's accommodation for both mental and physical disabilities is very lacking, many students don't feel supported or taken seriously. The student body itself however is very friendly, it's a close community. Things like Public Safety and food are good.

The rating I give this school is notQuite BrightPolitical Science
The rating I give this school is not a positive one in any way. I perceived Wheaton to be a small, intimate setting for which to pursue an undergraduate degree. In reality, it has proven to be a small school and nothing more. I have had some great professors, however, in reality, I believe that there are great professors at most colleges, especially within this category. This is of course a subjective analysis. However, if you are considering Wheaton, there are many things you should look at that will give you objective insight that substantiates my subjectivity. And that is the transfer rate here. It is high. In fact, alarmingly high. And endowments are VERY low. Colleges of higher levels more than succeed in those areas. So do your homework. I am transferring to a college that more than surpasses Wheaton on all the above.

After two years at Wheaton i decided enoughQuite Bright
After two years at Wheaton i decided enough was enough and transferred. The quality of their academics was okay, i did not think it was anything special or worth the extraordinary amount of money the college charges. I think that i could get the same quality of education at a state school. Wheaton is also quite small, meaning there are a limited number of programs you can go into.What really sucked was the people, facilities and surrounding area. The people on a whole were pretty antisocial and quite immature. They now how to pretend to act nice but once you really get to know them you will be disapointed. The facilities were quite limited and i got tired of the mediocre food they served everyday. This brings me to another point in that the town is a very isolated town with really nothing of worth in it. Unless you like drinking in a room with a few other kids, there is really not much of a social life.
