Non Reunion Volunteers:
Join non-Reunion classes from 1971-1991 for a Roundtable forum about engaging classmates and renewing connections to Wheaton. There is more to our abundant Wheaton life than Reunions, and classes 25+ years out have exceptional knowledge of connecting and living our Wheaton life abundantly! Led by Erica McLean Helm '91, National Class Officer Chair, we can share our experiences and strategies for Best Practices for organizing teams, event planning, reunion class favor and, continued engagement.

Wheaton Fund Volunteers:
Get ready for speed dating—the Wheaton Fund way. As we take on the Lyon’s share of increasing alumnae/i participation for today’s students and faculty this a time for Meetn’ and Greetn’ for Wheaton.
