Grad Student Clubs and Organizations

 

Graduate Student Clubs

Graduate Student Clubs are a medium through which students with shared interest can connect and grow. These student-led clubs encourage interaction among graduate students and engagement in a broad range of academic, spiritual, cultural, and recreational activities that promote holistic wellbeing and build authentic community.


No-drop road group rides from Glen Ellyn, usually 20–30 miles at around 16–18 mph average. These rides are a great opportunity to get more into road cycling or just to get out and stretch your legs. 

For more information, contact Stephen Wunrow.

This club is open to all Wheaton students no matter their field, grad and undergrad alike. The objective is to come together to read treasures from Christianity's ancient literary heritage that deserve a wider readership. Although it is called "Patrology Society," it is in actuality an "Ancient Christian Literature Society." We will not only read texts from the Church Fathers, but also the Church Mothers, and we will read what they read.

Texts will not be limited to matters of theology. We will dive into prayers, instruction manuals, hymns, poems, allegories, apologies, hagiographies, and other spiritual writings.

The vision behind this club is to connect modern Christians to the wisdom of their spiritual past and to pass down a rich religious and literary legacy. Members will not only deepen their historical knowledge of early Christianity but will (God-willing) be spiritually renewed as well.

Shinrin-yoku is a Japanese concept meaning something similar to outdoor therapy. We are a group of people who loves the outdoors and we invite you to join us for hiking and other outdoor activities!

We're in the grad school studying humanities but we code because life is code.

Graduate Student Organizations

Graduate Student Organizations are spaces for students to gather around and advocate for causes that are important to them. The structure of these student-led organizations include opportunities for students to take on specific leadership roles or to participate in general membership. Grad Student Organizations also have a faculty or staff advisor. 

We are an organization for international graduate students that aims to help each other. For more information, contact Manuel Rim.

Although all people can experience sexual and gender-based violence, women and girls are disproportionately harmed. 1 in 3 women, worldwide, experience sexual or physical violence in life.  

1N3 is a student organization that imagines a community where students are actively part of a global movement that prevents and responds to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in their vocational and kingdom pursuits. 

Through various events and gatherings, we will develop a more holistic and empathetic worldview, inclusive of peoples who are impacted by SGBV worldwide. We can better connect with those who are vulnerable and at risk of SGBV, examine how our areas of studies intersect with SGBV, and strive to make a positive change. We want to be restorers of the breach between the reality of human brokenness and holy dignity breathed by God.
