Fall New Student Orientation

August 25-27, 2018

The Fall New Student Orientation (NSO) program is designed for both 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.

In addition, Wheaton offers multiple specialized Pre-Orientation programs that take place prior to Fall NSO.  If you are interested in a Pre-Orientation program, you must register in advance with the sponsoring department.  Registration deadlines differ by program, but in most cases the deadline is mid-July.  Contact the sponsoring department if you have any questions. *Pre-Orienation participants are also expected to participate in the general Fall NSO program

We hope during your first few days on campus will be informative and fun!  Most of all we want you feel welcomed and part of the Wheaton Community!

Can’t wait to have you on campus!
