Review: Wheaton College is a private, evangelical Protestant liberal arts college in Wheaton, Illinois, a suburb 25 miles (40 km) west of Chicago in the United States. The college was founded in 1860 by prominent abolitionist and pastor Jonathan Blanchard. Drawing 2,339 undergraduates from all 50 United States, 50 countries, and 55+ church denominations, Wheaton offers 40 majors in the arts and natural sciences. Wheaton is noted for its "twin traditions of quality academics and deep faith" according to TIME and is ranked 20th among all national liberal arts colleges in the number of alumni who go on to earn PhDs. Wheaton's influence is seen in fields ranging from government (former U.S. Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert), to business (the CEO of John Deere), to the arts (film director Wes Craven), to education (Wake Forest University President Nathan O. Hatch), to global ministry (Rev. Billy Graham). Wheaton College is listed in Loren Pope's "Colleges That Change Lives."
