The From the Heart, For the Kingdom effort aims to build a new centrally located Welcome Center to ensure that all visitors—prospective students, alumni, and conference guests alike—are given the warmest of Wheaton welcomes. This multi-functional “front door” to campus will offer a Great Hall complete with fireplace, comfortable seating area, and exhibits chronicling Wheaton’s past, present, and future. The center will also house the Undergraduate Admissions office.
“The new Welcome Center will offer all visitors a beautiful space in which they can learn about all of the facets of the Wheaton experience, the centrality of our mission, and the rich history that undergirds our reputation,” says Crystal Cartwright ’08, Wheaton’s admissions and alumni liaison.
“There is no greater gift to a potential student than the understanding that he or she will become part of an amazing legacy of service and accomplishment. And there is no greater gift to alumni returning ‘home’ to campus than the reminder that they remain an important part of the Wheaton family and that their service and sacrifice continue to be a part of Wheaton’s historic legacy.”
