Fridays at Wheaton

See Yourself at Wheaton

Fridays at Wheaton is a chance to experience a planned day of activities that will help you feel warmly welcomed, have a chance to attend classes, and see yourself at Wheaton! After your time on campus, we know you’ll understand why the Princeton Review calls Wheaton #10 for Best Quality of Life and why Wheaton is consistently ranked as the top distinctively Christian college in the U.S. 

Register for your chosen date:

Travel Tips

If you are traveling by plane, we recommend either renting a car or contacting a taxi company for transportation to and from the airport. Check out more on directions and transportation.

Can't make one of these events?

Schedule a daily visit on a date that works for your schedule, or join us for our hallmark two-day Wheaton Connection!

Looking to make individual appointments?

Because Fridays at Wheaton are full of planned sessions, panels, and open houses, it is difficult to accommodate requests for individual appointments outside of the structured schedule. However, we would gladly set up a daily campus visit at another date that works for your schedule! With two weeks notice, we can set up individual appointments with faculty and coaches or schedule an overnight stay in a residence hall. Learn more about daily visits.
