“I worked with Professor Jani Benoit on a summer research project. We had a lot of one-on-one time, a lot of lab time to learn research skills. I loved it. At a bigger university, if an undergrad is doing research, he is probably making photocopies and handing them to a graduate student. Here, you really are involved. You’re right in the thick of the material. It’s really an experience like no other.
I definitely needed a lot of financial help to get to college. When Wheaton was able to provide it for me, it was a gift. Without it, I don’t know if I would have made it to college.”
