Take a class (or two!) at HoneyRock with WIN

Every summer, HoneyRock offers a variety of courses that meet Christ at the Core and General Education requirements of Wheaton College.

These courses, which are open to any student, are taught in a modular and intensive format. The sessions include concentrated coursework taught by professors at HoneyRock and include pre-class and post-class work. Professors will use the outdoors, the community dynamic, and other activities to enhance your learning experience.

I felt really encouraged to engage with the material because I had the space to learn new things with a specific group of people. Between class time, studying, and outdoor activities, I spent a lot of time with a small group of people, which helped me to engage in the learning. — From the 2018 WIN Evaluation
