Alumnae

The Oldest and the Best.

Founded in 1859, the Wesleyan College Alumnae Association (WCAA) is the world's FIRST alumnae association. All former Wesleyan students who have earned 30 or more semester hours at the College - whether or not they graduated - are considered alumnae and are automatically members of WCAA. Today, the association is governed by a board of managers that includes three alumnae trustees who represent the WCAA on the Wesleyan board of trustees. The association promotes alumnae engagement with the College by providing service and learning opportunities. Through e-communitcations, social media, events on campus, Campus News blog, and the Wesleyan Magazine, nearly 9,000 alumnae are kept informed of the activities and achievements of Wesleyan College alumnae.

10 GREAT THINGS ABOUT BEING A WESLEYAN ALUMNA

Sisterhood

More than 9,000 alumnae sisters live throughout the world.

Traditions

Long-held, deeply-cherished, and tightly-held.

Networking

“Wesleyan has given me so much ... not only a world class education but also my best friends, leadership opportunities, and a network like no other.” Former Alumnae Association President Melanie Filson Lewis ’93

Scholarships

Alumnae can refer daughters, granddaughters, sisters, step-sisters, step-daughters, and nieces for a half tuition scholarship!

Pioneer Book Club

A collaborative alumnae event that will reconnect alumnae to life on campus and to one another.

Travel Program

See the world traveling with Wesleyannes who already are or will become your lifelong friends.

Wesleyan Magazine

Our alumnae publication is published twice each year. Help keep it great by submitting a class note or, even better, an idea for a feature article!

STUNT

Bring your daughters, granddaughters, cousins, nieces, and neighbors to STUNT and introduce them to traditions that make Wesleyan great.

Career Mentor

Who better to give students feedback on career paths than Wesleyan's own successful alumnae.

Exclusivity

During the last 180 years, fewer than 15,000 women have had the privilege of saying they earned their degrees at Wesleyan College.

“To contribute to the strength and prosperity of our alma mater...”

These words are a pledge found in the Benson Charge all alumnae accept when inducted into the Wesleyan College Alumnae Association. This pledge makes clear the obligation alumnae have to ensure the College’s future. What better way to protect that future than to refer a student and give the gift of sisterhood, scholarship, and the gift of the Wesleyan experience; an experience enhanced by tradition, nurtured by a sense of family, strengthened through personal and spiritual growth, shaped by service and creative expression, and unified through a unique bond of sisterhood – that of the oldest alumnae association in the world.
