Wheaton College Residential Life

This is Residential Life. Welcome to the heart of your community.

As a residential college, Wheaton requires most students to live on campus. The residence halls are communities of diverse individuals living and learning together. Students are encouraged to participate in and contribute to the learning environment of their residence halls. The residence halls are an important learning environment at Wheaton. Students study together, socialize and relax with friends, build life-long friendships and work through the issues associated with living in a community. Each residence hall has a staff of Resident Advisors who initiate social events, faculty-led discussions, potluck dinners, intramural teams, and groups to attend campus-wide events. For current residents please refer to the Housing Calendar for a schedule of important dates. http://wheatoncollege.edu/residential-life/housing/housing-calendar/

Shout out to our October Lead Resident Advisor of the month, Colleen Sedney! She has gone above and beyond for Residential Life and we love her dearly!

The Center for Social Justice & Community Impact would like to invite you to our next Elephant in the Room Series discussion.

We all know that the holidays can be a great time to come together and enjoy the company of our family and friends (especially those we haven't seen in a while). However, some people experience moments within the merriment and laughter that potentially result in conversations about conflicting values, ideas, and opinions. This community discussion will identify those moments and explore ways to engage in a productive conversation or identify methods to prevent or extinguish potential discourse.

Date: TODAY! (Friday, November 22nd)
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Location: Cole Memorial Chapel - Meeting Room
*Lunch will be provided*

A panel of LGBTQ+ identifying students talk about their experiences abroad, with opportunity to ask questions.

Located in the 1960 Room.

Refreshments are provided!

Our aim is to bring increased awareness about climate change to campus. We hope to discuss the relationship between climate change and inequity as well as how the lives of traditionally underrepresented groups are implicated by climate change and agriculture. Our goal is for participants to walk away with more knowledge about the relationship between the environment and social justice so that students can determine actionable steps for affecting change.

After hearing from Professor JBK and Professor Knowlton discuss climate change as it relates to their areas of passion and expertise, participants will move into one of the following breakout groups with discussions led by student facilitators:
Climate Change: Where it Hits and Who it Hits
Human Rights: Eco-Injustice and Eco-Racism
Food Systems, Grassroots Movements, and Personal Change
Crash Course in Climate Science
After breakout session discussions, participants will come back together to debrief and discuss our next steps as individuals and a campus in a conversation facilitated by Professor Dorzweiler.

If you are interested, this event will be happening on Thursday, November 14th from 5-7pm in Hindle Auditorium.

On Wednesday Novemeber 13th from 7-9pm in the Holman Room in Mary Lyon, The Queer and Trans People of Color club is collaborating with the Feminist Association of Wheaton to put together this powerful event, open to anyone seeking to learn more about sex and what it can look like for different identities.

The Queer Sex Ed Panel is an informative way for people regardless of background knowledge to gain a realistic understanding of what it means to have healthy, safe sex. The panelists will be people from within as well as outside the Wheaton community who will bring in their unique and educated perspectives to sex as it pertains to people of various sexual identities.

She works to ensure that her students are safe, comfortable and getting to know each other while successfully promoting wellness. Dory has also had a lot of demanding situations that she has committed to providing assistance for. Dory provides positive energy for her PaM staff supporting her fellow Pine RAs and attacking new tasks with a gung-ho attitude. Great job, Dory! We love you!

Abby Cahil was named LRA of the month for September!
She has gone above and beyond this semester and we are so proud of her in Residential Life! She is so genuinely invested in the happiness of the YMC staff that she is willing to pretty much do anything to support them. Most recently she redesigned the YMC office to provide them with an exciting new atmosphere. She also volunteers to take shifts during things like senior pub night and Halloween when no one else will. She has grown so much since her time as an LRA last spring and we are so grateful to have her on staff!
