Fridays at Wheaton

COVID 19 Graphic FINAL

In light of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have suspended both group and individual visits through July 31. Following current CDC and local health official guidance, we will begin offering limited individual campus visits beginning August 3. However, we are pleased to offer virtual appointments with admissions counselors during business hours and select evening hours. Email admissions@wheaton.edu to set up an appointment with your regional admissions counselor. Virtual Campus Visits will also be available soon. Check back to register online. We are here to serve and advocate for you in the admissions process.

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.

Picture Your Day

Plan to arrive around 8:45am. After registering, you'll have the chance to enjoy a light breakfast, mingle with Admissions Counselors, and review your Welcome folder. Our Opening Session starts at 9:00am.

Next, you’ll have the opportunity to

  • take a student-led campus tour
  • head to Chapel for an experience of worship and community
  • join us in Anderson Commons for a top 20 college dining experience
  • ask your questions to a panel of current Wheaton students
  • attend a class of your choice
  • learn about the Admissions process in our Pathways to Wheaton session
  • hear about our General Education curriculum, Christ at the Core
  • prepare for your future with our Center for Vocation and Career
  • visit our academic departments to meet faculty and take a look at our 40+ majors

Scheduled programming concludes around 4:00 pm, but plan to stick around – you never know what activities you’ll find are happening on campus, in Wheaton, or in nearby Chicago!

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.

Parking Information

Parking will be available in the East Billy Graham Center lot across the street from the Welcome Center. View a campus map.

Interviews (Fall only)

Although interviews are an optional part of the application process, we are able to conduct a few limited admissions interviews during Fridays at Wheaton on a first-come, first-served basis. On-campus or telephone interviews for alternate dates may be scheduled by calling 800.222.2419 ext. 2. Interviews are available only for students currently applying for admission.

Looking to make individual appointments?

Because Fridays at Wheaton are full of planned sessions, panels, and open houses, we are unable to accommodate requests for individual appointments outside of admission interviews. However, we would gladly set up an individual campus visit at another date that works for your schedule! With two weeks notice, we can set up individual appointments with faculty, coaches, and financial aid advisors. Learn more about individual visits.
