Wheaton People

The Wheaton College community has come together to share stories and experiences that tell their part in the Wheaton story through multiple means.

Menu

Here, we feature a few of these stories from the #MyWheaton blog, written by current students; Wheaton Experts, faculty members distinguished in their field; People of Wheaton College Graduate School, graduate students; and #WheatonPeopleWednesday, a weekly feature from Wheaton College's Instagram account.

The #MyWheaton hashtag can be used by anyone to tag their thoughts, pictures, or videos to add to the Wheaton story.

"I’ve really enjoyed talking to all kinds of different people about all kinds of different things here at Wheaton. A lot of viewpoints and opinions are very set where I'm from so it’s been really good to be out of my comfort zone both geographically and in the diversity of thought." More >

"I came to Wheaton to learn how I can reach out to new cultures and meet challenges facing churches today. People are different than they were ten years ago. My Wheaton education has made me aware of things I’ve been doing that I need to change or rethink." More >

"We're working on Linear Perspective and Glazing for Painting 1. The hardest part is that there's no quick fix; you have to put in the time to get a good work. You can't just be like--'Oh, I'll just pretend this is happening.' The best part is the finished work...you always see your effort in a visual way." More >

"We can explore the intricate nature of God through math and science, we can explore the creation that he’s made through English and history, showing our students that, even without directly saying it, God is so in and through our studies. It’s such a cool part of being an education major and even something that I am learning as a student that I can’t wait to share with my students." More >

"I think my favorite day of Anatomy class was when we got to hold a human brain. Just holding it and thinking about all the different processes it accomplishes - thinking, my emotions, everything. I was like, 'this is what does all that?!'" More >
