Welcome Class of 2018
Congratulations, and welcome to Wheaton's Class of 2018!
Celebration Your Admission
We hope you'll join us for the first of our Open House for Accepted Student* events on February 21, 2014. You can even come for an option overnight stay with a student in one of our dorms on February 20. An invitation to the program is in your acceptance packet. Sign up now.
We are always excited to welcome accepted students to campus. If you weren’t able to come to one of our open houses, there are tours available and lots of other ways to visit us throughout the summer.
Don’t forget to join The Official Wheaton College (MA) Class of 2018! Facebook group. Show your Wheaton pride by announcing your college choice with our special Facebook cover photo!
Get to know your fellow students during CORE (also known as our Campus Orientation & Registration Experience) [activate link once 2014 info is posted]. There are three sessions to choose from in June (June 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13) and one program for everyone beginning on August 23. Although students are encouraged to attend one of the June CORE programs, special arrangements will be made for those who cannot attend. More information will be available in May.
When Do I Move In?
There are special pre-orientation programs for international students, multicultural students and those with disabilities beginning on August 21. The dorms will open for students attending these programs on August 20 (international students) and August 21 (students attending the multicultural or disabilities programs). All other students will arrive on Saturday, August 23. Fall sport coaches who expect certain students to arrive early will notify students of the appropriate move-in day.
Staff members from departments across campus are happy to answer any questions you have in advance of your arrival.
* If you can't come to campus for our February open house, there are other opportunities on April 11, 17 and 25.
