Join us in celebrating Wheaton scholarship and creativity!

For twenty-nine years, Wheaton’s annual Academic Festival has celebrated student scholarship and creativity. This year marks a distinct change, as it is our first virtual showcase of student achievement. Academic Festival has always been a celebration of energizing and extraordinary student work from across academic disciplines. This year we have students from 20 different majors coming together collaboratively in the event. Academic Festival is an opportunity for students to showcase the work they’ve done on campus and remotely so that Wheaton faculty, staff, peers and the community can witness their academic development and gain a glimpse of the future’s artists, scientists, authors, leaders and scholars.

Please visit the Wheaton Blog to view the work of this year’s Academic Festival participants. You can find the 2020 Academic Festival Program here: Academic Festival Program 2020
