Our clients find that every contact with our custodial, media, food services, and conference services teams are positive and every department's goal is to assure that our clients have a positive experience on our campus.

Our bookstore can help you create a customized book selection for your conference, available for you in the campus store, or at a book table outside your meeting space. In addition, the bookstore has many great Wheaton College gift items!
