Whether coordinating a '70s roller-disco, digging trenches for an irrigation project in Honduras, facilitating a pivotal business meeting, or raising awareness about systemic racism, Wheaton students are engaged in a variety of experiences that contribute to both their growth as Christians and building life-long friendships.
Campus Events and Traditions
Every year student groups on campus put on events including weekly lectures, campus-wide dances, concerts, coffee house performances, and much more. Beyond that, Wheaton has unique traditions, such as the senior bench, a bench that is fought over by the seniors and juniors, that have been around for decades.
