    Wheatonism 4 integration of faith and learning If you ever come to Wheaton you ll hear this over and over again and thankfully the professors mean it I haven t had a class yet in which the professor hasn t connected the discipline with the Bible Wheatonism 10 People dress as Bible characters for Halloween Abraham Isaac Jacob Not to mention Jesus Wheatonism 11 Chicken Finger Day in SAGA Anderson Commons Chicken fingers come around once or twice a semester in the dining room and trust me you won t understand until it happens At home I don t even like chicken fingers But here it s not just food it s part of the culture Wheatonism 19 Floating Okay so first you craft a root beer float using two straws then you find a couple that looks like they might be on a first date Bonus points if at least one of them is a close friend You walk up to the table sneakily and put the float between them Let the awkwardness begin Wheatonism 24 Professors Care One of your profs begins to tear up as he says If anything I have taught you has been of Christ hold on to it If anything I have taught has not been of Christ I pray that God would cast it away from you At the end of the day I hope you saw Christ not me in this class Needless to say there was a rush of applause at the end of that day for we did see Christ in that room every day we were in it However it was not merely the level of respect for God s word and honest search for its understanding which won our hearts and ears but also the care for the lives of each and every one of his 100 students shown partly by the fact that he knew ALL of our names So all in all my freshman year a Wheaton has been great so far I can t wait to see what the rest of the year brings But a piece of advice to all of you prospective students out there If you want to find a place where people search for God wholeheartedly love each other in community and seek for knowledge deeply come to Wheaton That s who we are Posted February 17 2014 Tags My Wheaton Campus Spiritual Life Student Activities The Liberal Arts Subscribe to Posts Author Profile Students share an inside look at Wheaton College Contributors Alex Soholt 16 Alley Kammer 16 Alyssa Paulsen 14 Amy Early 16 Andrew Cuthbert PsyD 18 Andrew Sedlacek 15 Ann Szeliga 17 Anna Morris 16 Aseye Agamah 16 Beau Westlund 14 Brielle Lisa 18 Catherine Holt 15 Charlotte Hallstrom 16 Charlston Ong 19 Clementine Kane 18 Corinne Elliot 15 and Sarah Macolino 15 Dana Henderson 17 Daniel Tannous 16 David Batdorf 16 David Robinson 15 Elena Miles 15 Elliot Leung 17 Emma Schaafsma 17 Emmanuel Ndolimana M A

    talk to my roommate and me Instead of texting friends to ask how life was going we could simply walk into their room and ask them in person Another highlight of my freshman dorm experience was the Bro Sis activities that are created throughout the year Beginning in the middle of welcome week brother and sister floors are paired up This gives you an easy opportunity to meet girls or vice versa and allows you to form quick friendships with one another Many of these activities are also what become highlights during freshman year including raids one floor having a party in the middle of the night for another floor meals together movie nights etc We all chose Wheaton for various reasons important to us including family history Christian influence academic reputation and the hope of lifelong relationships But the opportunity to live and become brothers and sisters with those who only a year ago were perfect strangers is a gift that only comes from living in community together Regardless of what initially attracted us to Wheaton the benefits of experiencing life together refines us into individuals that God will use to influence the world Posted December 10 2013 Tags My Wheaton Spiritual Life Student Activities Campus HNGR Posted by Alex Soholt 16 In order to give students the opportunity to confront human needs issues throughout the world Wheaton founded the Human Needs and Global Resources HNGR program By partnering with organizations worldwide this program integrates classroom study with service learning internships I contacted current HNGR intern Heather Kaufmann and asked her to share the experiences she is encountering in Bolivia As a HNGR intern these past 6 months I have been living and working in Cochabamba Bolivia with a non profit called Mosoj Yan My main project here has been teaching photography at a safe house for young women who have suffered abuse I ve also had the opportunity to do some qualitative research interviewing artists and art teachers in Cochabamba and quantitative research on what life looks like for the ex beneficiaries of the safe house A significant portion of my time here was spent learning how best to teach art therapy to teens I have learned that empowerment healing and self expression at least in this specific case are best achieved outside the classroom and that perhaps the best way for these objectives to be reached is for me to give my students as much freedom as possible The photography class culminates this coming weekend in an exhibition of the girls best work which I hope will bring home to them the message that their artwork has worth and that by extension they do as well HNGR for me has been a time filled with personal and spiritual growth language learning relationship building and lots of heaping plates of Bolivian food But more importantly my time here has given me a deeper understanding of issues related to poverty and injustice and furthermore my role in relation to
