Dine with a Mind (DWAM)

The Dine with a Mind (DWAM) program is an opportunity to connect with a Wheaton College faculty member over a meal, covering both you and the faculty member, in Anderson Commons (the college cafeteria) for personal and professional enrichment. This is a privilege that can be used once each semester by degree seeking graduate students while tickets last. 

After making your meal appointment with someone, inform the Graduate Student Care office to obtain a meal ticket.

Please email graduate.student.life@wheaton.edu at least 24 hours in advance of the anticipated meal and include:

  • Your name
  • Your ID number
  • Your CPO number
  • The mind you will be dining with (aka, the faculty member)
  • The date of the dining

These tickets will be sent to you via campus mail once the request has been made.
