  • Brian will process the refund.


  • Spouse lodging discount—save $10 per person/$20 per couple.
  • Commuter discount—save $75. A limited number of commuter registrations are available for people who commute from the Chicago area, or who prefer to stay in a local hotel.
  • Student discount—save $25. A limited number of student registrations are available.


  • Wheaton student dorm: Registration includes single-occupancy, student dorm lodging (including towels and linens) in one of the Wheaton dorm buildings. Note: this means sharing a bathroom with one other room.
  • Local hotel: Some may prefer to stay at a local hotel, even thought it may cost a lot more. Here are two nearby options:
    • Best Western Naperville Inn, Naperville, IL. They offer complimentary breakfast.
    • The Holiday Inn & Suites in Carol Stream, IL is a nicer option but also a little pricier. No complimentary breakfast, but they have a free shuttle from the hotel to Wheaton College.

TRAVEL: Conference participants can fly into Chicago through two airports.

The Honor-Shame Conference is not a function of Wheaton College.
