“I get the best of both worlds—a close-knit community within a big city.”
Wheelock is a community where students are much more than a number. "The best part is being able to honestly say that you know everyone," says Marci Leno '11. And since we're located in the heart of Boston, you'll have easy access to the educational, cultural, and social opportunities of a major metropolis.
At Wheelock, you'll be surrounded by fellow students, faculty, and staff who share your desire to improve the lives of children and families.
Most students live on campus, so you'll have many opportunities to make friends, get involved, and have fun. And with the recent opening of our new Campus Center and Student Residence, residential and commuter students alike have a great new place to gather, eat, socialize, and study.
"I love the small class sizes, the opportunity to really get to know faculty, the clubs and campus activities, and being able to live and learn in a place surrounded by people who share my goals," says Alyson Kantor '11.
Because Wheelock is a member of the Colleges of the Fenway, you can take courses, use facilities, and participate in intramural sports and other activities at five neighboring schools. It's like being a part of a 10,000-student university.
Boston's subway system, the "T," is just steps from campus and is your gateway to exploring the city's rich history and culture. Boston is the ultimate college town, with more than 50 schools and 200,000 students from around the world. World-class attractions such as the Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park are walking distance from campus.
More than just an enriching backdrop, Boston provides outstanding field experience opportunities-from the health care institutions of the renowned Longwood Medical Area to the nation's first public school system.
