Consequently, the kinds of fun range from lots of Intra-murals, water balloon fights, awesome pranks, hanging out in parks, going to the city and much more.
We are a lot more creative with our fun than just drinking games and we have a lot of it.
Wheaton does not have Greek life but I don't miss it at all.
I'm not sure if I would rush if I went to a school that offered Greek life, but I'm definitely fine without it.
There's an amazing amount of dorm floor loyalty, and there's also a fair amount of floor traditions and stereotypes.
The group that I have loved most since being at Wheaton is Honduras Project.There are people who go to bed early and people who love to stay up all night so you can find someone to talk to pretty much regardless of the hour.Freshman year, without cars, it's sometimes hard to find something to do but after freshman year alot of people have cars and we go do things almost every night and definitely every weekend.I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would recommend it to any future Wheaton students!Wheaton is not a party school as we sign the community covenant which as a stipulation of being a part of a community with underage students we won't consume alcohol even if we are of age.This is a group of about 25 students and one faculty member that meets all year and does team building and work projects on the weekends in preparation to spend Spring Break in Honduras living in a remote village and digging trenches to install a gravity-fed water system for the village.I made some incredible friends through Honduras Project.The football team is fun to watch, and usually pretty good (one of the Wheaton LB was just drafted into the NFL), and the mens soccer teams are usually national contenders.The women's soccer team usually aren't as fun to watch, but only because they always win.Weekends often bring train rides to the city, the metra station is basically on campus, and just enjoying the outsides when it is warm. There are tons of student ministries and activities you can get involved with, beyond getting involved with a local church (highly recommended and encouraged at Wheaton). Because there's not alcohol, there's really no parties, and that means you spend a lot of time on your dorm floor or apartment.The guest speakers at Wheaton are AMAZING because of the importance of Wheaton in the Evangelical community and its proximity to Chicago, chapel, which is a mandatory 3 times a week, is full of great opportunities to hear speakers from all over the world. Speaking of dorm floors, something happens at Wheaton that really doesn't happen anywhere else.
