You help to make our association of over 19,000 Wheaton alumni strong. You continue to count on each other and contribute to the college community.
You provide internships and career information to students and one another. You help each other stay in touch with classmates–and introduce each other to new friends in new cities. You provide a critical link between prospective students and today’s Wheaton. Last but not least, your financial support ensures that future generations of young women and men have the same wonderful Wheaton education that you had.
The Alumni Association is governed by a board of directors, nominated by you and representing the interests and needs of our members. Wheaton and the association depend on more than 1,100 volunteers to provide all of the outreach and opportunities described above.
