New Student Orientation

August 24-26, 2019

The New Student Orientation (NSO) program is designed for all new First-Year and new Transfer students that will be attending Wheaton starting in the Fall semester.  The program is mandatory for all new students and includes various educational sessions, Wheaton traditions and social opportunities.  Our hope is to give students the tools necessary to succeed  and prepare you to become a member of the Wheaton community.

Optional Pre-Orientation Programs

August 21-23, 2019

In addition, Wheaton offers specialized Pre-Orientation programs that take place prior to the primary NSO program.  These programs are for students who share specific identities and are designed to compliment the primary New Student Orientation program  that all students are required to attend.  For incoming students who qualify for a Pre-Orientation program, not only will you learn about resources that individually impact you, but this time is a wonderful opportunity to meet other new students and also some returning students who were in your place just a year or two earlier.

Registration invitations for Pre-Orientation will be sent to your Wheaton email address in the middle of June.
