30th Reunion Committee

Class Survey

Thanks to all of you who participated. We will go over the results at our Saturday dinner and also send them out to the whole.

30th Reunion Class Gift

The Class of 1980 is hoping to raise $500,000 with 60% classmate participation through the Wesleyan Fund. An anonymous classmate has agreed to give $1,000 to the Wesleyan Fund for the first new 100 gifts received up until May 15, 2010 regardless of the size of your gift. If 100 gifts are received, we will reach our participation goal and it will mean $100,000 for Wesleyan. To make your gift go to and maximize your dollars for Wesleyan!
