Since the Science Center opened in the fall of 2010, enrollment in Wheaton’s natural science majors has increased, and the College is seeing greater success in recruiting students to the sciences at Wheaton. The classrooms and laboratories in the building meet the contemporary paradigm for practice of the natural sciences, exhibiting Wheaton’s renewed commitment to provide an academically rigorous science program from a Christian perspective.
This perspective is more valuable than ever in a climate where membership in the scientific community appears to preclude faith in God. Wheaton College is training godly young men and women to be the next generation of scientific leaders. In the Biology department alone, more than half of graduated majors go on to complete a terminal degree in their field. This indicates that Wheaton’s students are some of tomorrow’s leading scientific thinkers.
Through the generosity of many donors and the Promise of Wheaton campaign, our science facility was nearly completely funded. However, $5.6 million is still needed to cover the costs in full. Naming opportunities are available.
