In response to the ongoing impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Wheaton College is altering its operations and moving to remote course instruction and operations for the remainder of the spring semester. The College’s statement can be found here.
As a result, ALL on-campus, in-person events events have been cancelled through Fall 2020.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate this global challenge and we look forward to welcoming you back to campus when we are able to resume normal operations.
