Our Digital Collections

Niké Yearbooks

Published continuously since 1916 and digitized in 2021, Niké is the Wheaton College yearbook. Previously known as simplyThe Wheaton Yearbook, Niké was named as such in 1918 for the goddess also known as 'Winged Victory' or the Goddess of Victory. Niké was the daughter of of the Titan Pallas and of goddess Styx, and often bestowed fame and glory to the victorious. The chosen title was a way to honor graduating seniors with hope for their promising futures.

The Wheaton College Digital Repository

Wheaton College's digital repository is a platform where we collect, preserve and distribute born-digital and digitized materials. Like the Gebbie Archives, the digital repository serves as an important hub for the preservation of Wheaton's legacy by making our collections accessible and promoting scholarly communications. The Digital Initiatives department curates the collections featured here. Contact us to learn more about our collection development policy.
