Sunday, June 6

Performance Trust Field

Thank you for your patience as we plan for a commencement service on campus in place of Wheaton College’s Edmund Chapel.  In a previous communication, we had mentioned that each family would receive a minimum of four tickets.  As we have reviewed current guidance in Illinois for gatherings, we no longer need to limit the number of guests for our ceremony.  We will provide seating on Performance Trust Field for nearly 1500.  If you do not get a seat on the field, there will be additional seating in the bleachers as well as room for guests to set up their own chairs outside of the stadium (viewing from a distance is possible thanks to our jumbotron). The gate will open at 2:30 p.m. for general admission seating.
