    Admission

    Wesleyan Alumni Admission Volunteers (WAAV) support the efforts of the Office of Admission by representing Wesleyan at college fairs and interviewing prospective students. Volunteers help ensure that prospective students who lack the time and/or resources to get to campus have an equal opportunity to attach a personality to Wesleyan by virtue of their interaction with alumni. Volunteers also ensure that Wesleyan continues to attract and enroll students who represent various geographic, socio-economic, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.

    Class Agents

    Class Agents act as liaisons between classmates and Wesleyan, communicating regularly with members of their class and encouraging classmates to make gifts to Wesleyan through the Wesleyan Fund. Class Agents play an important role in the overall success of the Wesleyan Fund. Through letters, emails, or calls, Class Agents can help generate record-breaking class gifts and give everyone the chance to reconnect with Wesleyan.

    Reunion Committees

    Reunion Volunteers work with the Wesleyan staff to guide the planning and implementation of their class reunion celebration held each May. Reunion committee members encourage classmates to return for reunion, ask for gifts in honor of their reunion and share the latest Reunion news via print and electronic communications. It is a great opportunity to reconnect with classmates before Reunion and to help Wesleyan at the same time.
