    The location is great! Just seconds from Fenway Park and easily accessible to the rest of the city. The campus is small enough to make you feel tucked away from the city when you need it.

    Wheelock offers the best of both worlds -- a small school within a large city. There are usually many activities and club meetings going on. If you can't find something you like, you can always explore the city and make friends from nearby colleges.

    The campus is small so it's really easy to get from one place to another. There is a great community feel here and everyone is so friendly. There are so many different ways to get involved on campus and with the other surrounding colleges. Being at a small school in a great city is like having the best of both worlds!
