Welcome to Wellesley Alumnae of African Descent
Connect with each other and the College based our common identities and shared experiences at Wellesley and in the world . Alums from all class years are welcome to join us. We look forward to bringing everyone together and sharing Wellesley bonds.
Alumnae play an important role in Admissions. Students of all backgrounds can attest to the influence an alum had on their decision to apply to and attend Wellesley. And we know how crucial the connections with alumnae of color can be to Black, Native American and Latina prospects.

Local engagement is a cornerstone of WAAD, and our Regional Representatives are key to making that happen. We’re looking for alums to step forward in the New England, Northeast, Central, South, and West regions.
Fellowships and scholarships provide exciting opportunities for alumnae to explore and deepen their academic, personal and professional interests in the U.S. and abroad.
