Class of 1978

Thank you to everyone who came back to campus this Memorial Day Weekend to celebrate our 30th Wes Reunion! There was a positive buzz from everyone who attended. Some of the highlights of the weekend included: '78 representation in three WESeminars; a tree dedication in honor of our donation to Financial Aid (the tree is located behind the Usdan University Center...be sure to visit it during your next trip to campus!); a wonderful class dinner hosted by President Michael S. Roth; books donated to the Green Street Arts Center After School Program; and finishing off the weekend with a Commencement address by Senator Barack Obama.

Congratulations to Jodi Wilinsky Hill, who received the Outstanding Service Award at the Wesleyan Assembly, and Irma González, who received a Wesleyan University Service Award at our class dinner!

For those of you who were not able to attend, we hope to see you for our 35th!

Class of 1978 30th Reunion Gift

Giving pyramid

Because our financial support of Wesleyan is so critically important, if you make an increased gift that results in your joining a new Donor Association (Clubs that recognize generosity in financial support of Wesleyan), then your gift — between $1,000 and $24,999 — will be matched dollar for dollar by several classmates deeply devoted to Wesleyan.

Green Street After School Book Donation

We have decided to donate books to the Green Street Arts Center After School Program in Middletown. Green Street is a project of Wesleyan's and the After School Program at Green Street is open to area students between the ages of 7 and 18. We are encouraging everyone who attends Reunion to bring books you are willing to donate to a good cause. The Green Street After School Booklist (PDF) is now available to view books that would benefit the program.

To learn more about the program, please visit www.greenstreetartscenter.org/after_school.html.
