What makes Wheaton special?
Wheaton is special for a lot of reasons, but in my opinion, it is the community that has impacted my undergraduate experience the most throughout these last few years. Spaces on campus such as the Office of Multicultural Development (OMD) and the Student Activities Office (SAO) have served as safe havens where I have felt the most "at home" and welcomed by the campus community.

Anything else?
Thank you to each and every one of the Wheaton Fund donors! Without your contributions, I would not have been able to create nearly as many memories throughout my time thus far at Wheaton. It is because of your thoughtfulness and continued efforts that the student body is able to grow stronger through community with each basketball game, Coffeehouse, and the countless other events that are held each school year!
