This historic Massachusetts institution, originally founded in 1834 as a female seminary, is now a “small liberal arts college” that provides “a top notch education” for “high performing students.” Wheaton is a school that “focuses strongly on creating the well-rounded, aware, worldly and accepting liberal arts graduate.” Students love the “small class sizes” that engender a “close connection with faculty.” These factors “are incredibly conducive to classroom discussion and cooperative learning in all subjects” and “students are expected to be present and participate in class.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
