Review of Wheaton College-Norton

My review

The Good:

Of course, when I went there, it was an all womens college, so things may be a 'little' <wink> different as a co-ed school now, but I believe their main values have remained steadfast. The best thing about Wheaton was that provided a positive environment that ultimately instilled confidence, self-assurance and leadership qualities.

With smaller classes and so many opportunities to explore interests and get involved in groups,

Most students took advantage of the smaller classes and really engaged in the classroom, as well as explored their interests in the multitude of clubs, groups, teams, get involved. You got a chance to get to know a lot of folks and learn from each other.

The Bad:

Nothing really bad, but will say there is not much to do in the pretty little town of Norton. You had to make an effort to find exciting things to do off campus. Although the Campus itself is beautiful.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Wouldn't trade my Wheaton friends in for anything!
