Welcome!

Out of concern for the health and safety of our Wesleyan community during the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily suspend in-person events. However, we have updated the Alumni website so that together, we can stay connected to Wesleyan and to each other. We will update this site regularly, so please check back often. We hope you enjoy these offerings—from views of campus to lifelong learning opportunities—and that they strengthen our collective sense of community in creative and meaningful ways. Go Wes!

Enjoy this rendition of the Wesleyan Fight Song performed by the Wesleyan Spirits from their homes around the world.
