    This is definitely an expensive school, so you should really consider if there are cheaper options. However, the education is phenomenal and campus is life is really nice.

    Wheaton can seem a little pricy, but I would say you definitely get the bang for your buck. The friends you'll meet, the professors, the spiritual guidance and just the overall experience will all make up for money you are spending. It is well worth it!

    Wheaton is expensive, but it prepares you well not just for a career after college, but for LIFE after college.
