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.

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 Hall 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, they are a great way to share more about yourself beyond the application for admission and can satisfy the Christian Faith Reference supplemental requirement for all applicants. Unfortunately, we are unable to conduct admissions interviews during Fridays at Wheaton. On-campus or virtual interviews for alternate dates may be scheduled by calling 630.752.5600. Interviews are available only for students currently applying for admission for Spring 2023 or Fall 2023.

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.

Registration Coming Soon!
