Passage Orientation Info for Parents

Wheaton College Family at Passage Orientation

Passage Orientation 2024

Welcome to the Wheaton family!

Your student’s Wheaton journey will begin with Wheaton Passage, the orientation program of Wheaton College. Passage Orientation is a unique orientation experience that provides the opportunity for students to form Christ-centered friendships, spend time with professors, and grow in their relationship with God.

What is your role at Wheaton Passage?

You are invited to help your student move into their residence hall on their arrival and move in date and experience the on-campus portion of Wheaton Passage until students depart for their Passage sites. After the students leave, parents will gather for a short service of prayer and dedication led by President Ryken, then you can head home. There is no parent programming once students return from their Passage sites.
