  • A Note to Prospective Student Parents

    Though I am the Dean of Students, and our division is called Student Affairs, I have no illusions: choosing a college, coming to college, succeeding in college (and occasionally struggling in college) are family activities in many ways. And they should be. Most students who come to Wheaton have had the benefit of their parents’ […]

    Though I am the Dean of Students, and our division is called Student Affairs, I have no illusions: choosing a college, coming to college, succeeding in college (and occasionally struggling in college) are family activities in many ways. And they should be.

    Most students who come to Wheaton have had the benefit of their parents' support and advice for eighteen or so years, helping them become the kind of student and person that we hope will join the Wheaton community. We are interested in getting to know you as well as your student, because that will tell us a lot about the contributions she or he will make to this college.

    What I always find interesting about my students is getting to know who they are and how they see the world upon their arrival here, and then watching them go through incredible changes as they intersect with Wheaton culture. Our college is 180 years old, so that's a lot of culture. It is a story written by thousands of students who have come here, grown up, and gone off to change the world, leaving us changed, too. Like Wheaton, our students each have their own story, and we are privileged to be part of this particular chapter. We hope you find it, as we do, a true page-turner.

    Please check out our web resources for prospective parents and families, and feel free to send me a note if you have a particular question you can't get answered here. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,

    Lee Burdette Williams
    Dean of Students
