50th Reunion Giving

Thank you so much to those classmates who have supported Wellesley so far this fiscal year (since July 1, 2021). Gifts to The Wellesley Fund from alums like you ensure the College can support what we love about Wellesley for current and future students. For those who haven’t donated yet (or who wish to make an additional donation), please go to

For our 25th reunion, with Nan as fundraising chair, the class achieved 63.2% participation and 102 Durants. (Durant level at that time was $1,000.)

50th Reunion Goals

  • 72% participation 
  • 50 Durants 

We all have our own reasons for appreciating Wellesley—back when we were there and since. We love the friends we made, the faculty who taught and mentored us, the world-class liberal arts education we received, the beautiful campus we explored, the strong network of alums we’ve connected with…the list goes on and on. Nan and Beth brainstormed some of our own favorites:

  • Walks around Lake Waban;
  • Biking around campus and town;
  • Traying down Severance Hill;
  • The candy machine in Caz’s basement;
  • Cheering Boston Marathon runners (along Route 135 in front of Munger and the Quad dorms);
  • Schneider’s (and The Well before Schneider’s) with delightfully greasy food (Nan was the short order cook there for a couple of years);
  • Schneider’s great movies, old and new (Beth loved the Umbrellas of Cherbourg);
  • The Guarneri Quartet;
  • Small seminars taught by impassioned professors; large lectures on sweeping topics;
  • Julian Bond talking about his work with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee;
  • Norman Cousins lecturing on the aftermath of Hiroshima and Nagasaki;
  • Raisin’ Hell, the junior show we saw during our first year;
  • Access to Cambridge and Boston (whether via the MIT bus or the T at Riverside); and
  • The Vil (especially Hathaway’s, Bailey’s--those hot-fudge sundaes!, and HoJos).

What are your memories? If you feel like sharing, please send us ideas that we can share in a future communication.

As you know, our 50th reunion is scheduled for June 3-5, 2022. Mark your calendar. And, don’t forget to respond to the December 20 email from the 2022 Record Book Committee.

Have a happy and healthy 2022,

Nan Roberts and Beth McKinnon (mccarper@msn.com)
