Weather Emergencies

Since Wheaton is primarily a residential college, our operations will normally continue unless weather conditions are so serious that a decision is made to close the college or delay opening. When the weather is bad, you can find out if the college is closing or delaying opening by calling the announcement line at 508-286-8285 or visiting the college’s home page at http://www.wheatoncollege.edu. If there are no messages on the announcement line or home page, the college is open as usual.
