150th Anniversary of the Alumni Association

In the fall of 1869, the Class of 1870 met and created the Alumnae Association for the purpose of holding social reunions each year. In the 150 years since, the association has grown and has become much more than just a social celebration during reunions.

This year, the Association is undertaking a number of initiatives that shine a light on our collective histories. The Oral History Project will capture alumni and faculty stories and preserve them in a printed book. The Alumni Recognition Committee is presenting a slate of award candidates who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to professional achievement, volunteerism and to Wheaton. Lastly, at Commencement-Reunion weekend in May 2020, we will be celebrating together in the Chapel at the annual meeting in recognition of the founding of the association 150 years ago.
