Dine with a Mind (DWAM)

The Dine with a Mind (DWAM) program is an opportunity to connect with a Wheaton College faculty member over a meal, covering both you and the faculty member, in Anderson Commons (the college cafeteria) for personal and professional enrichment. This is a privilege that can be used up to 2 times each semester by degree seeking graduate students while tickets last. 

After making your meal appointment with someone, inform the Graduate Student Care office to obtain a meal ticket.

Please email graduate.student.life@wheaton.edu at least 24 hours in advance of the anticipated meal and include:

  • Your name
  • Your ID number
  • Your CPO number
  • The mind you will be dining with (aka, the faculty member)
  • The date of the dining

These tickets will be sent to you via campus mail once the request has been made.
