William Osborne Society

WillieO 18-19


The William Osborne Society exists to provide Black students an avenue to make their unique contribution to Wheaton College. Our goal is to provide the space for all students to fellowship, serve, play and worship together in the context of Black cultures in order to make Wheaton College more reflective of the wider world for Christ and His Kingdom.


In order to achieve our mission we have developed a fourfold vision for the William Osborne Society. Our first aim is to promote Black fellowship and leadership. Our second aim is to provide opportunities for community outreach and service. Our third aim is to invite Wheaton students to share and participate in Black cultures. And our fourth, and final, aim is to worship in the context of the Black church.

William Osborne Society was established in 1987.

A Student's Insight

 One of the highlights of the year has been the Rhythm and Praise Chapel service that Willie-O organized. They shared their experiences and culture with the rest of campus in an offer of worship to God.
