    People are drawn to Wheaton College for so many different reasons--the faculty, the students, a personal connection, the classic New England setting.

    At this very moment, accepted students are deciding where they will go next Fall. Won't you share your thoughts about Wheaton? A quick note would go a long way.

    Just use #WhyWheaton on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Here's a sample of what people had to say about #WhyWheaton last year:

  • Tweet for Wheaton

    This week, high school seniors are experiencing excitement and tremulation as college acceptance letters arrive in their inboxes and mailboxes. Some of these students may feel uncertain in making their final college choice. In order to encourage our accepted students to choose Wheaton, we want to make sure they have as much information as possible. […]

    This week, high school seniors are experiencing excitement and tremulation as college acceptance letters arrive in their inboxes and mailboxes. Some of these students may feel uncertain in making their final college choice. In order to encourage our accepted students to choose Wheaton, we want to make sure they have as much information as possible.

    That’s why we have developed a campaign through which the Wheaton community can use Twitter to encourage newly accepted students to enroll. Using the hashtag #WhyWheaton, we’re enlisting people to take a few minutes (and up to 140 characters) to share their experiences at Wheaton.

    Following are some examples of tweets:

    My professors got to know me, and worked with me to create my own major, bridging philosophy, physics and sociology. #WhyWheaton

    The Center for Global Education helped me find the perfect study abroad program in Australia to extend my college experience. #WhyWheaton

    Wheaton's Academic Advising deans coached me in college, but also for my time after college as a Fulbright Scholar to Estonia. #WhyWheaton

    At Wheaton, I explored everything, from varsity track to jazz band, from student government to researching Jupiter's icy moons. #WhyWheaton

    John Collins' physics class. We built a water balloon slingshot to shoot over the soccer field, all in the name of physics. #WhyWheaton

    We’re asking that folks post their tweet(s) anytime between March 20 and March 25. Thank you for your support!

  • Wheaton students explore Mars

    The new Mars Center for Science and Technology is being put to good use by students and faculty alike since it opened last year.

  • Deadline extended

    For students who began an application before Jan. 15, but have not submitted it; and those whose teachers or counselors have submitted credentials on their behalf.

    Yes, you read that right.

    The college has extended its application deadline until February 1 for the following students:

    • Those who began working on a Wheaton Common Application before January 15, but have not yet submitted it;
    • Those whose teachers or counselors have submitted credentials on their behalf.

    If you believe that you fall into either category, you should have received a notice of the extension by email. If you haven't, please contact us immediately. (We also advised high school counselors of the extension, too.) 

    Questions? Contact the Admission Office via email or call 508-286-8251 or 800-394-6003.

  • We're here for you

    It’s true. We do have a deadline: January 15, 2013 to apply for regular decision admission. But what we really want to “say” is that we’re here to help. The college may be closed from December 22, 2012 until January 2, 2013 for the holidays, but we are busy reading applications already, and we are […]

    It's true. We do have a deadline: January 15, 2013 to apply for regular decision admission.

    But what we really want to "say" is that we're here to help.

    The college may be closed from December 22, 2012 until January 2, 2013 for the holidays, but we are busy reading applications already, and we are looking forward to reading yours ... when it's ready, of course.

    The general admission email account, admission@wheatoncollege.edu, will be checked daily during the holiday break, and the Admission staff will be busy reviewing files. We hope to answer messages within 24 hours (excluding Christmas and New Year's Day).

    So, if you encounter any difficulties in submitting your application or you have a question, please let us know.
