Wheaton’s New England location, size and well-known academics were the main reasons I applied. A merit scholarship and great financial aid were also factors in my choice. After 2 wonderful years, I still find a different aspect I like about Wheaton every day.
Adjusting to Wheaton
It was kind of hard leaving home and being away from my family, however I did not have any difficulties adjusting. Living in dorms is a great way to make friends and to get comfortable with Wheaton and being near Boston and Providence makes it possible to go out in the weekends with friends.
I really liked Economic Development with Professor Wyss, where I learned about the developing world economies that overcame similar problems to the ones my own country faces. I also really enjoyed Corporate Finance with Professor Gildea whose great knowledge taught me different financial concepts that will be useful in my career. Finally, Public Policy and Public Administration with Professor Goodman was very dynamic and interesting. At first, I was not sure why I needed to take this class for my Management Minor, however now I realize how much I learned about interacting with others, speaking in public, and presenting my work with confidence.
Wheaton has given me a lot of opportunities including a summer Anthropology course in Tanzania, where I had the best time of my life. Being in Africa was a life-changing experience where I learned about the country, culture, people and myself.
Currently, I am attending London School of Economics for my junior year. Again, Wheaton gave me this amazing opportunity to go to one of the most important schools of Economics in the world, where I am learning and preparing for my future.
