Reunion 2024 in photos

More than 400 Wheaton College alumni returned to campus Friday, May 17 through Sunday, May 19, 2024 to reconnect with classmates and celebrate graduating seniors. They were delighted to participate in the traditional procession before the Commencement ceremony on the Dimple, and a busy schedule of activities. Events included the Annual Meeting of the Alumni—which featured the presentation of Alumni Achievement Awards to Rachel Pierre-Champagne ’01, Nathania “Tanya” Aritao ’12, Marcia Coleman Williams ’72 and Susan Little Doyle ’77. The Reunion dance was a big hit as usual.

The Class of 1974 celebrated its 50th Reunion with more than 50 members in attendance. Carol Samuels-Botts ’74 was among three distinguished individuals to receive an honorary degree at Commencement. Recognizing a “silver” anniversary was the Class of 1999, back in Norton for its 25th Reunion.

Overall, alums from 33 states and territories, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico, as well as locations abroad, such as France and Haiti, participated in the weekend’s events. Most notably, Loraine Whiteford Parker from the Class of 1944 returned for her 80th Reunion.
