Gratitude in the mail

Students celebrate Thank-a-Thon Week

In honor of Pay It Forward day in late April, more than 210 Wheaton students penned over 1,000 “thank you” postcards—which were mailed to alumni volunteers, faculty, staff and Wheaton Fund donors.

This display of gratitude took place as part of Thank-a-Thon Week, a series of events jointly sponsored by the Wheaton Fund and Alumni Relations that engaged and educated current students on the impact of supporters on their Wheaton experience.

Throughout the week, students personalized postcards at tables stationed in Chase Dining Hall, Balfour-Hood Campus Center, Emerson Dining Hall and Mary Lyon Hall. View photos of the event in the gallery below.
