Commencement Reunion

Alumnae/i College: Reunion 2015

Alumnae/i College Course Descriptions
Friday, May 15 from 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.


Adding Green Energy to the Power Grid, Jason Goodman, associate professor of physics
Fossil fuel power plants can operate continuously, but since the wind and sun aren’t always available, renewable sources pose unique challenges for the electrical power grid.  In his first-year seminar “Energy and Civilization”, Professor Goodman uses a simple in-class board game to illustrate these problems, and to spark discussion about how large-scale electricity storage and transmission can help us adopt renewable electricity on a massive scale. Join the discussion and play the game the students played in class!


Strategic Planning Session, Strategic Planning Task Force Members
This year Wheaton began an exciting new era in its history when Dennis M. Hanno took the helm as our 8th president.  During Commencement Reunion Weekend, you, Wheaton's largest constituency, have the opportunity to contribute to Dennis's vision and plan for the Wheaton's future.  Join members of the Strategic Planning Task Force to discuss Wheaton's strengths and identify opportunities for the coming years.  This is your chance to be a part of shaping the Wheaton of the future!
