From the WCAA President

Dear Wellesley College Alumnae:

The best opportunity for WCAA to connect alumnae to each other and the College is always reunion. During our planning, we strive to incorporate the feedback we have received from alumnae and design a reunion that supports the College most effectively.

We have heard from alumnae that they want more time to be together with their classmates, particularly when they first arrive. We have therefore dedicated Friday night to socializing. We also want to officially welcome attendees, and alumnae want to know more about what’s new on campus. Consequently, we will hold our annual meeting on Saturday morning, at which time President Johnson will report on the state of the College. What better way to welcome everyone back to campus!

Alumnae also love the faculty. This year, in addition to faculty lectures, the WCAA will host an academic fair, with wine and cheese, open to all departments. This will allow faculty to showcase what is happening academically and give alumnae multiple opportunities to enjoy the intellectual stimulus and connect with former professors. In addition, Career Education will demonstrate its career mentoring software, the Hive, a new resource available to all alumnae. We will, of course, have our signature parade on Sunday morning, but this year we will follow it with Stepsinging, providing a celebratory capstone and literally ending reunion on a high note.

These are just some of the enhancements we are making this year. All are intended to create a stronger connection between alumnae and the College and a greater sense of fun. We will be looking for your feedback as we endeavor to make reunion an event you never want to miss.

Georgia Murphy Johnson ’75, president

Advance registration for reunion 2017 has already closed, but alumnae may register on campus during reunion at the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center.
