Hi @AFrenchie36 , congrats on your acceptance!
The reason I chose wheaton was because of the feeling I got when I visited the campus. A huge well known research university was originally my first choice until I visited Wheaton this past fall. While I was there I interviewed with a current student, and my interviewer was nice enough to give me a private tour of the facilities I was interested in that would have not been shown on the admission offices tour. It was a moment like that when I realized I wanted an education from a school where there is a strong welcoming community. Aside from the beautiful campus, Wheaton offers what I want to study and I feel like it’s program is very strong with a lot of opportunities. From my experiences so far they really do care and for me going to a school that isn’t just about the price tag is priceless.
I suggest that you carefully review your options for school, and take into account all of the factors (i.e location, major, size, atmosphere, price etc). This will be your home for the next four years. Good luck! If you have anymore questions I’d be happy to answer them!
