The transition to college is an exciting time that involves the whole family. We encourage family and friends to join us this summer to learn more about how the transition to Wheaton College is a collaborative experience between the student, the college, and the student’s family.

Family Orientation takes place on campus at the same time as Academic Orientation.  Students are able to invite up to two guests to attend Family Orientation and will register their guests on the same registration form that they complete for Academic Orientation.


Family Orientation will occur on the same day as your student’s Academic Orientation – MAP. This program is offered to the families and friends of our incoming students to help them acclimate to Wheaton College to enable them to coach their student through their new experience on campus.

Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., along with a continental breakfast. Students and their families are invited to attend a Welcome program featuring Faculty and Senior Leadership commencing at 9:30 a.m. in Weber Theater.  During the day, families will engage with Student Support Offices and enjoy various opportunities to connect with the campus community. The Student and Family Programs will wrap up by 4:00 p.m. on the same day.
