Wheaton is really small, especially for people who graduate from high school classes about our size. Lots of people have never heard of it, or confuse it with the Wheaton College in Illinois, which is very conservative Christian. The food here is okay-- lots of people think it sucks hardcore, but I generally can find something to eat. Also, our tuition keeps going up, which sucks a lot.
Norton, not a college town, one bar. but growing, very easy to get to boston or providence if you want to be in a city. shopping malls/more restaurants are being built in the towns next to norton like mansfield, easton, taunton. frequent complaint about wheaton is the cafeteria food or public safety
i love my school. i truly do.. i picked it by closing my eyes and putting my finger on an envelope with my acceptance letter inside. as an alum of a 3,000 student highschool, wheaton doesnt feel incredibly small. the feeling of a community is important to me, and at wheaton its truly an awesome experience to feel included in this community. i absolutely LOVE my school and to be honest, i didnt expect to.
You recognize faces everywhere you go. I rarely walk anywhere on campus and see someone I don't recognize. That's why I love Wheaton! I can always walk into the dining hall and find someone I know to sit with. I joke that I could sit in the dining hall from 7am-7pm and be entertained all day. The close relationships students make with each other, with faculty and staff is what makes Wheaton such a wonderful place. We're really close to Wrentham outlets with fabulous outlet shopping and we often go into Providence for dinner, which is only about a 20 minute drive.
