More than 30,000 Wesleyan alumni live throughout the United States and across the world.  And they are all Cardinals for life.  The Wesleyan Alumni Network is a vibrant community offering lifelong opportunities for alumni to stay connected with each other and the University.  You are invited to explore them all and find out which ones work best for you!



Looking to get more involved? Want to meet other Wes alumni in your city? Wondering how to reach your freshman roommate? Start here.



Wesleyan has flourished as an institution because of generous and consistent support from generations of alumni, parents and friends.



Host an event. Join a committee. Mentor a student or fellow alumni. There are many ways to give back to alma mater.
