WHAT I LIKED

My education experience at Wheaton College (IL) not only provided me with rigorous academics but also gave me a chance to live my spiritual life where it would not be judged.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Prospective students should be aware of the fact that the food at the cafeteria is not always good, the dorms are not sound-proof, and it is best to bring your own stationery supplies for school as well.

WHAT I LIKED

Wheaton has a beautiful and well-furnished campus. Its staff, particularly the professors, are deeply committed to living out a godly life and teaching their students God's beauty in all academics. The facilities are also well maintained and the students who go there are very friendly and hard-working. It's the perfect school for a committed Christian who is willing to work and study hard, but also deepen their relationship with Christ.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Wheaton's academics are challenging, so don't be afraid to ask for help or extensions, especially from the profs. Don't be discouraged! It's their policy but also great delight to offer help, but you have to take initiative and ask for everything you need. The food isn't stellar, although they do have a large variety.

WHAT I LIKED

I have absolutely LOVED my time at Wheaton! As a Liberal Arts school, it seeks to equip and train Christian servant leaders to be the best in whatever field God has gifted them in. What I love about their educational approach is that through the Liberal Arts we are trained with a holistic, interdisciplinary lens that tackles complex issues with a much more informed perspective. My professors have been incredible and love hanging out with their students, and our campus life is bustling with community. However, at the foundation of all our endeavors, the school and the student body seeks to honor and glorify Jesus by training, equipping, and encouraging others in their faith. Wheaton is a place where I've been tremendously challenged, deeply known, and richly grown-- both as a person and in my faith. I highly recommend considering.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Obviously, just like anywhere, there is going to be a diversity of beliefs and opinions around you. It's a good idea to know where you stand before you come in, but also to be open to respectfully engaging others who are different from you.

WHAT I LIKED

I love the professors and how invested they are in the student and the material. As a part of the conservatory, everyone is very talented and focused but for the most part we only build each other up.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food could be better. Also the college needs to be more LGBTQIA accepting and more sensitive to race related issues.
