Am learning a lot
The classes are all really interesting and the professors know a lot and are great.
Am enjoying being here
There is a strong community here, and everyone is friendly. There is so many ways to get involved and so many things to do.
Tips for prospective students
Definitely come for an overnight visit, and try to find scholarships, because it is a private school.
Great for these types of students
This is THE school for anyone who wants to work with Education, Child Life, or Social Work, of children in families in general.

Am learning a lot
The classes here are so interesting and the teachers are great! They make the classes fun and they are always there to go above and beyond to help you.
Am enjoying being here
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!
Bang for the buck
This is the best school possible to go to if you are interested in social work, education or child life. While it is a private school and does cost a bit to go to, just get all of the scholarships you can and get a small loan like I did, it's so worth it!
Tips for prospective students
Pretty much what I said above when it comes to costs. Also, apply early action so the school notices you before all of the regular decision applicants apply. You get to find out earlier and then you can look into each of your schools more. Definitely do an overnight or a campus tour because they are really helpful and give great insights to the school!
Great for these types of students
Students interested in education, social work, or child life. Students who don't mind a small school. Students who really love to get involved with extra curriculars because there are so many great ones here! Students who want to help make a difference in the lives of children and families.

Will learn a lot
I attended a class in my prospective major when visited and found it was very engaging. Also they offer internships in your major beginning your freshman year.
Will enjoy being here
You must love Boston in order to go here.It is in the heart of the city and a short walk from Fenway Park.
Bang for the buck
A Very nice school but its private so of course it has a higher tuition.Although I hear they work with you well on financial aid.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you like Boston and want to be at a small school.
Great for these types of students

Must Really want to work with children and Families.

Am learning a lot
The professors are amazing here! They all have a personal connection with each of their students, and I have learned more here compared to other schools.
Am enjoying being here
Its awesome here! I love living in Boston, and in a small knit community. The area is great and safe, and the dorms are not bad either!
Bang for the buck
The education that you get from Wheelock is well worth the investment.
Tips for prospective students
The school is heavily interactive with giving back to the community! If you are looking into going into a profession that gives back such as social work, education, or anything along the lines of that, this is the place for you!
Great for these types of students
Great for students are involved with their communities and giving back.
