Christian Studies: 5 Reasons Being an Education Major is 100% Worth It

Posted by Chloe Keene


When I was a senior in high school, everyone asked me what I wanted to study in college. I typically told them, “I’m planning to study secondary education. I think I want to be a teacher.” Throughout my years in college, I have had a lot of support for that decision, but I have also had a fair share of people respond with something like “Hmm… you don’t want to be a lawyer or a doctor?

3 Lessons on Why Dancing is a Form of Christian Ministry

Posted by Kayla Solstad


God has radically transformed my expectations of Wheaton and ministry during my time here at Wheaton. Choosing to come to Wheaton was hard for me. I felt that God was pushing me to go to Wheaton, but Wheaton was lacking one thing that had been a huge part of my life: dance. Or so I thought. I had grown up dancing competitively: tap, jazz, and ballet, and was devastated to be leaving this chapter of my life — I didn’t know what I would do without dance. Upon arriving on campus, I quickly discovered Zoe’s Feet, the dance ministry here on Wheaton’s campus. God has used this ministry and form of Christian Outreach to change my life.
