Class of 1983

Our 25th Reunion was a wonderful success!

Our 25th Reunion was a truly wonderful weekend filled with intriguing WESeminars featuring ’83 classmates and beloved faculty, lounging on Foss Hill and catching up with old friends. As predicted Dr. Mezzi Fights Infection rocked Eclectic on Friday night. It was great to see many classmates on campus for the weekend. The weekend came to a celebratory end with exciting commencement speeches by President Michael S. Roth and Senator Barack Obama. You can view coverage of both their speeches at www.wesleyan.edu/rc.

Thanks to all who contributed in making the weekend such a success!

Class of 1983 25th Reunion Gift

This year, our class is hoping to raise a record-breaking $2.5 million in honor of our reunion, through the Wesleyan Fund, to support the University’s highest priorities including financial aid. Click here to make your gift today!

Giving pyramid

For every $75,000 that the class raises for financial aid, an anonymous classmate will give an additional $25,000, which supports a student for four years with a $100,000 scholarship. The goal of the class is to raise 20 such scholarships for a total of $2 million for financial aid.
