Hi. So I'm here with my friend beef too high. So she's going to tell you a little bit about how she made that choice. So before every week I went to the University of Northwestern in Minnesota. Every single time I came and visited campus could my older brother went here. Uh, there is just another part of campus that I just fell in love with, more like the infamous Castle. What's it called Blanchard Like Like some of the buildings here. While the building can't Just seeing Blanchard, just like in its beauty, was one of the things. So every single time I came and visited, there is just another part of campus out highlighted. Then I ended up transferring because I loved it so much, couldn't physical. Uh, what do you think That this stereotypes about Wheaton, your students that goto wheaton are true false? What you have to say about those? Um, I think there is a stereotype that waiting students are very stuck up just because like we're like the Harvard of Christian schools and, like, we're serious, like, theologically and biblically sound. Like, while a majority of that is not true and like, if you really look, you might find students that are, like, a little more stuck up, like, more pretentious, I feel like for a majority of the campus, it's not like that anymore. So I just really feel like Like, if you're purposefully seeking out those people, you will find them. I find I feel like a majority of the campus is more like it just pursuing God and pursuing their vocation and where they feel like they're calling him. Yeah, so I I feel like they're not true, but And then what are your thoughts on, like the community come in handy. So a community covenant is something that all students have to sign if you're living on campus or off campus. That basically is just a list of rules that your problems seem to follow during your time here at Wheaton. Like some of it include, like not drinking, not smoking Now, having said no having sex, not engaging in like, hello sexual activities. Just like a list of things that are based off of like going to church. Uh, but it's all basically just like, based off of, um, like description, Scripture. Like I don't think this campus would be as sober and like calm if, as it is, if it wasn't for the covenant who that set that standard. If you think there are times when it's like like we're not allowed to drink on spring break, and I'm kind of like if we're not on campus and where's the correlation that I'm like, You're twenty one and you're all right with your family somewhere, right? So, like, if if you're twenty one and your family comes and visits you for the weekend like you're not allowed to just go out and have a glass of wine with them. Sometimes we're kind of just like I don't know, it's just kind of difficult and makes life a little bit more difficult, and I feel like it's like, unnecessary in some aspects, but uh, kind of strict in some places. Other than that, I think it's it's helped shape like the opposite.
