You're going to love being a Wheatie!

Welcome to your journey of excellence in faith and learning. Wheaton College has set the benchmark for distinctively Christian scholarship since its founding in 1860. It is the place for thoughtful young Christian men and women like you who desire to engage with their intellectual peers while growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

From the moment you arrive on campus until the day you graduate, Wheaton will challenge and encourage you with its internationally recognized faculty, our Christ at the Core liberal arts curriculum, and our gifted students who call on Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

The Center for Vocation and Career will equip you with the tools you need to draw upon your world-class education throughout your chosen career and calling after graduation. You will learn to think about how your faith integrates with the rest of your life, which in turn will prepare you to build the church and benefit society worldwide.

Blessings for the journey,

Silvio Vazquez
Chief Enrollment Management Officer
