- Looking for some good books? Here are three excellent resources for students and parents, recommended by Wheaton's Dean for Student Engagement, Dr. Steve Ivester:
- Liberal Arts for the Christian Life is a compilation of essays contributed by Wheaton faculty across a wide range of disciplines. This is a great book for parents who want to learn more about the theological basis of a Christian liberal arts education and its capacity to shape the habits and virtues of a student's life.
- Thriving at College (Alex Chediak). Written by an insider to higher education and a parent of a college student, this book provides students sound advice about issues like treating college as if it were high school, living out of balance, living for grades, wasting opportunities, and embracing faith.
- In the Name of Jesus (Henri Nouwen). In a stage of life when students are grounding their identity, this book sets a strong vision for submitting to the work of Christ through us, claiming our irrelevance, and avoiding the temptation to be popular.
