 I think Wheelock does a great job at making sure everyone’s voice is heard. There are tons of clubs for people to join that they feel is the right fit for them. Wheelock is very diverse and is open to all people no matter your ethnicity, class, or sexual orientation. Wheelock makes sure that...

At Wheelock college, it’s a great place to be yourself and have your own identity.

I think Wheelock is a place where there's a lot of diversity and some acceptance, but not as much as people think. There isn’t a lot of discussion or understanding of lots of different identities. I think there needs to be more of an open dialogue surrounding all issues related to diversity....

Coming to Boston was a culture shock of sorts. Coming from a town that was almost completely white, racial minorities were few and far in between in a really tiny town in the middle of Maine. No one wanted to talk about race, because for the majority of the white population, it wasn’t a thought...

After coming to Wheelock, I feel more comfortable about talking about race. Before Wheelock, race was never a topic of discussion; it never came up. I’m kind of glad that we do talk about it though. I think with the type of school that we are, it is important that we talk about these issues.
