Lead Passage Orientation

Welcome First Year and Transfer Students to Wheaton!

A Passage Student Leader is primarily an opportunity to welcome the incoming first year and transfer students to Wheaton College. You can choose to serve as a Wilderness, Northwoods, Urban, or Transfer Passage Leader, and each position includes room, board, and an additional stipend. 

This is a significant opportunity to make incoming students feel like Wheaton is their new home. You’ll receive all the training you need on providing hospitality, leading small group discussions, and being equipped to have fun with your students as you welcome them onto Wheaton’s main campus and join them throughout their Passage adventure. Join Passage to develop your own leadership skills and to help bring in the future students of Wheaton College.
