Wheaton was founded in 1834 as a female seminary and chartered as a four-year liberal arts college in 1912. The college became coeducational in 1988, and its Phi Beta Kappa chapter was established in 1932. Located in Norton, Massachusetts, between Boston and Providence, R.I, Wheaton's residential campus is one of the most beautiful in New England. Prospective students and visitors often say our campus has a very relaxed feel. It's no wonder—we're a friendly community. With a 11:1 student-faculty ratio, students know their professors as teachers, advisors and often as friends. The campus is always buzzing with energy. Throughout the year, fun activities, celebrations and academic events keep people busy and connected. Mission statement: Wheaton College provides a transformative liberal arts education for intellectually curious students in a collaborative, academically vibrant residential community that values a diverse world.
