Wheaton Athletic Mentors

The Wheaton Athletic Mentors (WAMs), which is the school's student-athlete advisory committee (SAAC), are a select group of student-athletes who provide a forum for the student-athletes and to serve as a liaison between the student-athletes and administration at the academic and athletic levels. The WAMs design and implement programs to encourage academic achievement, health promotion and social responsibility to enhance the student-athlete experience. Follow the WAMs on twitter: @LyonWAMS

Such past Big Events have included indoor wiffle-ball tournaments, comedians and late-night breakfasts. As always, a Saturday carnival inside Haas Athletic Center serves as the biggest of the Big Event's functions.
