Wheaton's Outdoor Ice Skating Rink
Posted on January 26, 2013
We are happy to announce the return of Wheaton College’s outdoor ice skating rink. The Men and Women’s Ice Hockey teams have joined together with SGA to provide the Wheaton community with a terrific opportunity to enjoy the winter weather.
We have several exciting events scheduled for 2013 like our 1st Annual Wheaton Winter Classic hockey game, and a Valentines Day Skate. Keep an eye on The Link and Google Calender to find more great community events.
Make sure to bring your own skates as Wheaton will only be providing skates during specialized programming. Below you will find the rules and regulations for the ice rink.
