A Friendly, Comfortable Campus

Connected by a small but picturesque pedestrian bridge, campus life at EXPLO revolves around the two sides of Peacock Pond. One side of the pond features our residence halls and dining hall, the other, our air-conditioned classrooms, recreational quad, and athletic spaces.

Top-Notch Facilities

At Wheaton College, EXPLO has access to state-of-the-art science labs, art studios, a woodshop, and two theaters (one full stage, one black box). For athletics and recreation, the campus features an indoor pool, playing fields, and a robust athletic center. In addition, there is a campus center, a greenhouse, an observatory with nine telescopes, and, all around us, woods, nature trails, and vernal pools to discover, explore, and examine.

Ideal Location

Its location is ideal: right in the center of beautiful Norton, Massachusetts, and perfectly situated 38 miles from Boston and 25 miles from Providence, Rhode Island. One of the most beautiful residential campuses in New England (Norman Rockwell would approve), Wheaton College is also one of the region’s friendliest.
