N******k from Maine

I'm currently a Junior at Wheaton and I love that there's a great sense of community at Wheaton College. I was put off initially that it's a small school in a rural setting, however I have a hard time going home on weekends because every weekend there's something going on and I don't want to miss anything. The smaller classes are great, my professors all know me by name and get me and my strengths. There's a lot of opportunity to get involved in clubs and internships. Also while it is pretty quiet in the immediate area of Norton, there's good proximity to both Providence and Boston; friends and I have ventured to both on weekends to hit Museums or the social scene.
