We invite you to send a handwritten “Dear Senior” note of support to members of the Class of 2022.
This year’s Wellesley seniors have had a college experience like no other. After a traditional first year, their sophomore, junior and senior years were upended by the pandemic—separating friends, estranging students from campus, and challenging them to pivot academically while maintaining their pursuit of a rigorous Wellesley education. Many students have missed classic Wellesley milestones like Flower Sunday, Stepsinging, and Marathon Monday.
As the 500+ students in the purple Class of 2022 prepare for what comes next, we’re asking you to show our soon-to-be alums that one thing remains constant: the incredible support and camaraderie of the global Wellesley community.
We'll deliver your letters to individuals in the graduating class. Successful messages will:
- Aim to make seniors feel seen and supported as they wrap up an unprecedented four years
- Help welcome seniors into the Wellesley alumnae community
- Demonstrate alums’ gratitude for Wellesley’s impact on their lives
- Avoid references to specific milestones or College moments that pandemic-era seniors may have missed out on
Please send your cards to arrive by May 9 to the following address:
Class of 2022 Senior
℅ Wellesley College Alumnae Association
Green Hall Rm 246
106 Central Street
Wellesley, MA 02481
If you would like to include your contact information for a response, we encourage you to do so. To efficiently facilitate this effort and protect student privacy, we are not able to provide names of specific recipients. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We thank you for helping to support these incredible future alums and letting them know they will always be a part of Wellesley, and that Wellesley will be there, wherever they may go!
