Exploring Wheaton

There is lots to explore at Wheaton College. Wondering if Wheaton might be the right fit for you? Here is what you can expect from a Wheaton College experience.

Academic Excellence

  • More than 95% of our faculty hold terminal degrees
  • Top 75 Liberal Arts College according to U.S. News and World Report; only distinctively Christian school in the top 100.
  • More than 40 majors and programs of study to choose from

Beyond the stats and rankings, joining Wheaton College means joining a community of academic peers - a campus full of students as engaged in their academic pursuits as you are.

Kingdom Purpose

  • For Christ and His Kingdom, since 1860
  • 88 chapel services, 50+ different speakers, 7 unique worship bands each year
  • 100% of staff and faculty affirm Wheaton College's Statement of Faith

Academic excellence holds little significance, however, unless it is tied to our mission and guiding motto: For Christ and His Kingdom. Through everything we do, we seek to discover Christ’s kingdom in the world around and us and in our midst - the community of Wheaton we call home. At Wheaton, you'll join a community of grace; 2400 undergraduate students doing life together.

  • About 25% of Wheaton students are American students of color, and another 10% come from outside the United States
  • 11 multicultural organizations and 1 multi-racial living learning community

Choosing a college means choosing a new home for the next four years - and our goal at Wheaton is to make Wheaton feel like home for students from every ethnicity and locale. Christ-centered diversity is an on-going priority for Wheaton College, which means you'll join a community seeking to display unity in Christ for our good and the good of others.

Preparation for a Career and Calling

And once you're here, you'll discern your next career step and possibly your future calling, all while getting the preparation you need to adapt and excel in a changing world.
