Wesleyan College Alumnae Association Board of Managaers for 2015-2018:
No one knows Wesleyan better or is more qualified to share information and enthusiasm about the College than her own alumnae. There are many ways to represent the College in your community. You may choose to work college fairs, host parties for prospective students, and or present Wesleyan First Book Awards. The Wesleyan First Award is presented to a high school sophomore girl who is active in her community, displays strong leadership qualities, maintains a minimum 3.0 GPA, and meets Wesleyan's minimum admission requirements. The Wesleyan First Scholarship valued at $10,000.00 per year if the student attends Wesleyan College. The scholarship is renewable annually for a total of $40,000.
Welcome to Wesleyan Saturday is a fun way to get prospective students on our campus. Dates and schedule for 2017 to be announced.
This year nearly one third of Wesleyan’s new first year students (Class of 2020) were referred to the College by alumnae.
The Wesleyan alumnae club network continues to expand. Today there are thirty-four around the world. Membership is open to all alumnae. Club members may make bylaws and elect officers for their own governance consistent with those of the Wesleyan College Alumnae Association. For more information on a Wesleyan alumnae club or group in your area or on forming a new group, please contact the Office of Alumnae Affairs at (478) 757-5173.
Many of you may remember the proverbial “sophomore slump” – the feeling that the excitement of college has worn off and the fear that you’ll never graduate. Please consider participating in our Alumnae e-Link Program as a way to connect with a second year student and communicate with her via email throughout the year and perhaps in person if you live in the Macon area. Please complete the E-link form and we’ll connect you with a student. Contact Sherrie Randall '03 at email@example.com.
Volunteer to be a class e-Rep and share the latest news from the College as well as personal class news with your classmates via e-mail. While news briefs can be shared on social media, more detailed personal messages, class reunion letters, news of annual fund class participation, and other information can be shared via e-email and reach alumnae who do not use Facebook or social media. To volunteer to manage a class e-mail list and to help to spread the word about “all things Wesleyan,” contact Carol Burt ’64 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program emphasizes a friendship relationship designed to give support for international students as they adjust to their new environment. Families are not expected to house students. As a Friendship Family, you provide perspective on American culture by including the student in informal dinners, holiday celebrations, an occasional family outing, or any event that adds to the richness of the international student’s experience in the United States.
If you are considering being a Friendship Family, please contact the Office of International Student Services for more information. So that we may coordinate families and students before the holidays begin, please submit an application. For more information, contact: Tonya Parker, Office of Student Affairs, (478) 757-5214 or mail to: email@example.com.
Remember moving into the dorms on your first day at Wesleyan? Could you and your parents have used a little help? Why not help new students have a special first day at the College by volunteering to return to campus in August and assist first year students and their families as they move into the residence halls? Alumnae volunteers receive t-shirts and enjoy lunch in Anderson Dining Hall. To volunteer for Move-In Day this year, contact Cathy Snow at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pioneer Book Month is a collaborative alumnae event sponsored by the WCAA that reconnects alumnae to life on campus and to one another through a common reading experience. Get to know other Wesleyannes in your area by participating in something that is fun and educational. Volunteer to be a hostess for this annual event in your area or, better yet, take the next step and start a Wesleyan Book Club in your city that meets on a regular basis and not just during Pioneer Book Month. To volunteer for the Pioneer Book Month Committee and to help promote this event, contact Jane Claxton ’68 at email@example.com. To host an event contact Cathy Snow in the Alumnae Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. or learn more and sign-up here.
