About the College
Ideally located in Norton, Massachusetts, between Boston and Providence, R.I, our residential campus is one of the most beautiful in New England. Prospective students and visitors often say our campus has a very relaxed feel. It's no wonder—we're a friendly community. With a 11:1 student-faculty ratio, students know their professors as teachers, advisors and often as friends. The campus is always buzzing with energy. Throughout the year, fun activities, celebrations and academic events keep people busy and connected.
Wheaton offers a personalized academic experience leading to a bachelor of arts degree in more than 40 majors and 60 minors. All students take connected courses which encourage interdisciplinary work. Our students have a reputation for academic excellence. Since 2000, Wheaton students have won more than 158 prestigious scholarship awards, including 3 Rhodes Scholarships. Our approach to education is inclusive and diversified, emphasizing a truly multicultural community.
Wheaton's reputation is directly connected to our pioneering history and dedicated leadership. The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) ranks Wheaton's athletic program among the top 20 percent in the country. The NCAA Division III athletics, intramural and club sports, and recreation programs are a vital contributor to campus life and Wheaton's excellence.
Over the past few years, Wheaton has made a commitment to focus on sustainability issues, on and off campus. A new apple orchard will leave a sustainable legacy for many years to come.
