It happened in the Dimple

Dimple processionHoop rolling. Dimple diving. Political speak-outs. For most of Wheaton’s history, the college green known as the Dimple has been the hub of campus life. And if the trees could talk, oh, the stories they would tell.

Like the one about the runaway cow.

From Wheaton to Washington

Rob Gile '00Robertson (“Rob”) Gile ’00 is funny and engaging as he talks about his life. He opens up about his elementary school years, high school and his time at Wheaton College. But ask specific questions about the job where he spends most of his life and the room falls uncomfortably silent. The smile fades. The responses become evasive and vague.
