What Students Are Saying

4.35 Average Rating
A community of God-serving Christians.
A place where the professors teach their own classes and want to learn your name; they want to see you succeed.
Where friends become family, a very close-knit community.
Amanda from WA
I love going to Wheaton, the community here is amazing. However, Wheaton isn't for everyone, you have to want to be here. Our Christian faith plays a central role in all that we do
