“Music is accessible. It just grabs ahold of us. . . . There’s something almost mysterious in how music affects people.”

The Wheaton College Concert Choir spent time in the city with the students at Golder College Prep, and discovered that sharing the gift of music is always a reciprocal blessing. #wheatonserves

One year ago today the Wheaton College community lost Dr. Brett Foster. Foster was Professor of English and Wheaton's Poet in Residence. He was a good, true friend to his students and colleagues on campus, and his exceptional poems will be a lasting treasure for all who read them, both inside and outside the church.
If you are in the Wheaton area, please plan to join us next week as we gather together to celebrate and remember Dr. Foster's life (and that of his colleague, Dr. Roger Lundin, who also passed away on November 13th, 2015) at several events on campus including a faculty recital with new compositions, an art exhibit and reception, and a poetry reading with Scott Cairns.

Does evil really exist, or is it simply the absence of good? In this TowerTalk, Dr. Sarah Borden '95 explains St. Augustine’s privation theory of evil and unpacks its important implications for our understanding of evil, suffering, and God's work in the world. http://www.wheaton.edu/TowerTalks/borden-1

We invite you to read with our students, staff, and faculty the novel "Silence" by Shusaku Endo, as part of Wheaton College’s Core Book program. The Core Book program fosters a shared experience across the campus community as we read, reflect upon, and discuss together a significant work that highlights themes of Wheaton's Christ at the Core general education curriculum.

You are invited to join with us in our common intellectual and spiritual experience as we consider the literary, theological, and historical implications of Endo’s powerful novel. Throughout the 2016-2017 academic year, there will be various opportunities to engage with "Silence" and its themes through events on campus. Learn more at www.wheaton.edu/silence.

Today is ChicaGO Community Service Day for new students. In gratitude for all the ways God has served us, service is a core value integrated into a Wheaton education starting on day 1 (well, okay, technically it's day 4). This photo shows one of our teams that will be partnering with Storehouse Church, Chicago Park District Haas Park and Casa Central to make a difference. ‪#‎mywheaton‬ ‪#‎chicaGOserviceday‬ ‪#‎wheatonorientation‬

After a thorough national search, we are pleased to announce that Ms. Dee Pierce has agreed to serve as the permanent director of the Wheaton College Center for Vocation & Career (CVC), effective immediately. Hired in 2011 as a career counselor and events coordinator in the CVC, Dee has served the CVC as interim director since March 2015 and has proven to be a strategic thinker, excellent implementer, innovative change agent, skilled connector, and a highly effective leader and people manager. What is more, she is deeply committed to preparing our students for success after they graduate from Wheaton.

The appointment of Ms. Pierce is just one of the bold, proactive steps the College is taking to help students prepare for life after Wheaton. We are actively seeking to create an innovative, state-of-the-art Center for Vocation & Career that will equip students to find and thrive in careers that reflect kingdom values; empower students to understand how their gifts and interests will help them answer God’s call on their lives; prepare them to articulate their skills and interests; and see the integration of their faith and work.
