Move-In Assistance at Wheaton College: Meet the Thunder Move-In Team 

First Year Students, when you arrive at your residence hall, you'll be greeted by the Thunder Move-In team of upper-class students who will eagerly empty your car and move your belongings into your room. This team of students will help you settle in, answer questions, offer directions, and advise on room set-ups! 
Transfer Students, head to the Welcome Tent, 301 Chase St., where you'll be welcomed by Transfer Thundermovers, pick up your ID, and receive a welcome-to-Wheaton gift!
