Amplify is a co-ed a cappella group of 14 members, founded in 2012 at Wheaton College. The first group of its kind, Amplify has pursued an informal spirit of performance, including vocal improvisation and audience participation, while maintaining musical excellence. Past performances include the Uptown Getdown, hosted by Wheaton in Chicago, the Motown Revue at Wheaton College, and several visits to Franklin Middle School.
Amplify explores both contemporary and traditional styles of music interpreted through a cappella singing, and focusing on a theme of unity and togetherness. It culminates the hard work and focus of the group every year at the spring concert. Amplify's year-end concert in 2013 was a campus sensation, drawing more than 300 students and members of the public. Amplify is also involved in the community of Wheaton and the surrounding area through volunteer performance. The members of the group are listed below.
Auditions are held at the beginning of every fall semester. Audition dates for vocal percussionists and all voice parts will be announced at the beginning of each school year.

Wheaton Turning Point
Wheaton's yearbook dates back to the late 19th century
The Tower's legacy extends back to the early 1920s. Its predecessor, Echoes, started in the late 1800s. Over the years, The Tower has changed according to the styles of each issue's time, yet the content has remained consistent throughout its run. The Tower has also won many All American awards. Many of The Tower's editors have gone on to distinguished careers as ministers, theologians, scientists, professors, designers, missionaries, lawyers, and doctors.
Making a yearbook is creation in concert. A group of students come together to creatively and skillfully extend Wheaton's memory, to capture each year's worth of moments. In this ambition, there is both challenge and success, but when the dust clears and the printers cool, our editors still gather in the office, surround our work table, procure our copy, arrange our pictures. To this end, the final publication of The Tower has approached. The 2015-16 yearbook is the concluding edition after more than 90 years. Please join us in celebration of the memories created through and recorded by the final and previous editions of The Tower.

The Pub Press
The Pub is a journal written and produced by and for members of the Wheaton College community; it is created to be a forum for interdisciplinary dialogue about culturally immediate issues; the ideas expressed in The Pub are based upon our shared commitment to the Christian faith and carefully consider the implications that faith has for our engagement with contemporary concerns.
The Pub seeks to bring members of our campus community into discussion of issues that affect the intersection of our intellectual and Christian lives. There are outlets on campus for artistic expression, but, strangely, there is no outlet for the academic or analytical. Classes certainly provide some sort of means for this, but there is no real way to engage such things outside the classroom. The result can be a community of superb analytical thinkers who are unable to say anything meaningful to the people around them. The Pub provides a venue for assessing the ideas and beliefs we gain in the classroom against those of our entire community, not just those of a professor or a circle of friends. As Christian intellectuals, we are called to think in light of an entire community of believers, and The Pub seeks to be part of that holistic intellectual and spiritual dialogue.
