We10 - Young Alumni

What is We10?
We10 is a ten-year program for young alumni. Students who have earned at least two semesters of academic credit at Wheaton—mostly sophomores, juniors, and seniors, are considered alumni in residence. Alumni who have graduated within the past seven years are also included in this program. Both of these groups (’04-’14) make up our young alumni. We10 offers unique opportunities to:
  • Discover Wheaton's rich history
  • Pass on Wheaton traditions
  • Encourage class unity
  • Help build relationships between students and alumni
  • Establish a tradition of giving back to Wheaton
  • Keep young alumni engaged after graduation

Recent grads have a lot of changes in their lives which often include moving to a new place, looking for a job, starting a new job, getting married, social and career networking (but not necessarily in that order!) and so much more. Wheaton wants to help you through your transitions:

Wheaton in Network (WiN)
If you are a current student, be a WiNner and join Wheaton in Network. WiN is an online tool that facilitates connections within the Wheaton family for networking, advising, and mentoring purposes. Check out WiN.wheaton.edu for more info.  By the end of 2012, all alumni will also be able to search for advisors and mentors on WiN.
