January Orientation

January Orientation General Content Variant

Welcome to Wheaton College! We hope that your Orientation in January helps you transition well into this community. You will be entering with a small cohort of new students.  When you arrive on campus, come to the Welcome Center where you will check-in.  After that, the January Orientation Committe (JOC) will help unload and get settled in your residence.  JOC is planning a great weekend for you...orienting you to campus, Wheaton, and Chicagoland.  We're so glad you're joining our community!
