You shape the life of this place with your intellectual curiosity, sense of honor, social awareness and healthy spirit of competition in the classrooms and residence halls, on the playing fields, and at meetings of clubs and organizations. At Wheaton we believe that learning and growing extend beyond the classroom and that it happens wherever you find yourself. That's why most of our students live on campus, creating a lively social scene. The door is always open for you to become an important part of a community that supports individual expression and collective responsibility. As a student at Wheaton, you will enjoy the benefits and the freedom of the honor code system, which is a long standing tradition at the college. It guides the academic and social life of our campus and reflects the fact that students play an integral role in managing and planning much of what happens on campus, through student organizations, clubs and the SGA. In fact, Wheaton students have a voice on some of the most important governing bodies at the college, including the board of trustees, because we view student leadership as an important opportunity for learning.
