Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

Activities? Between working at the Elizabeth Amen Nursery School, the Madeleine Clark Wallace Library, or coordinating campus tours, my schedule is packed. However, I always make sure that I find time for myself. This would include playing club field hockey, actively participating with Relay for Life, WheArc (formally called Best Buddies), and Precepting (which is a peer mentor program for the incoming freshmen class)!

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, I enjoy relaxing and spending time with my friends. Whether it’s going to see a movie, or out to dinner, or just talk a walk down Thayer Street in Providence, I like to always make the most of my time.

Why Wheaton? Being from California, it was important to me that Wheaton was not a commuter school. I needed a student body that enjoyed being here with the desire to learn and explore themselves. Throughout my time here, Wheaton has excelled way beyond my expectations! I really enjoy the close community and I know when I walk into a crowded place, I will always be greeted with a smiling face!

Something interesting about me? I really enjoy traveling! I have been to Europe, Mexico, South Africa, Botswana, Canada, and China all within the last four years! My favorite things to do while I am abroad is trying new food, meeting new people and attempting to learn new languages.
