Summer 2020 Preview Days
*Due to COVID-19 we have suspended large group events for the remainder of the year. In accordance with the CDC and local government officials we hope to resume individual on-campus visits starting August 3. We encourage you to take a look at all of our virutal tours and connect with our Admissions team with any questions you might have about Wheaton. We look forward to connecting with you!

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.
