Send a Note to a Senior
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, the Alumnae Association is asking the Wellesley alumnae community to show our soon-to-be alums that one thing remains constant: the incredible support and camaraderie of the global Wellesley community. Send a handwritten letter of support by May 9th to our soon-to-be alums in the purple Class of 2022. For more details, please visit the campaign page.
