2. Wheaton College
Located in Wheaton, Illinois, a suburb 25 miles west of Chicago, this private not-for-profit liberal arts college was founded in 1860 by abolitionist and pastor Jonathan Blanchard.
Wheaton focuses on “twin traditions of quality academics and deep faith,” according to Time magazine and is often ranked amongst the country’s best educational institutions from reputable sources such as The Princeton Review, Kiplinger’s and Forbes.
Despite it’s small size – around 2,500 undergraduates and just over 525 graduates enrolled – the college offers 40 majors in arts and natural sciences.
