As any Wesleyan alum will tell you, volunteering is in our blood. Each year, over 2,000 Wesleyan alumni and parents around the world coordinate events in their local areas, interview prospective students, host current students as interns in their businesses, raise funds for the University, plan reunions, participate on educational panels, and much, much more.
If you are interested in becoming an alumni volunteer, or just want to learn more about volunteer opportunities, please contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations firstname.lastname@example.org
Wesleyan Alumni Admission Volunteers (WAAV) support the efforts of the Admission Office by representing Wesleyan at college fairs and interviewing prospective students. Getting involved with WAAV helps ensure that those students in your community 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. Alumni participation ensures that Wesleyan continues to attract and enroll students who represent various geographic, socio-economic, racial and ethnic backgrounds.
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. They also lead a cadre of Associate Class Agents in these efforts. Class Agents play an important role in the overall success of the Wesleyan Fund. By writing letters, sending e-mails, and making phone calls, Class Agents can help generate record-breaking class gifts and give everyone the chance to reconnect with Wesleyan.
Reunion Volunteers work with the Wesleyan staff to guide the planning and implementation of the reunion celebration held each May. Reunion committee members encourage classmates to return for reunion, ask for financial support, 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.
