Spring Orientation

January 7-9, 2022

January Orientation General Content Variant

Welcome to Wheaton College!  We believe that Spring Orientation will help you transition well into this community.  You'll be entering with a small cohort of first year and transfers that you'll enjoy getting to know before classes begin and throughout the semester.  Over Orientation Weekend, the January Orientation Team will move you into campus housing, orient you to Wheaton and its many resources, and explore Chicago with you. 

Move-In begins by checking in at the Welcome Center on Friday, January 7 between 10am - 3pm.  You will be met by our January Orientation Team who will help you unload and settle into your residence on campus.  See the FAQs page for additional Spring Orientation information.
