WCAA Alumnae Weekend
June 8-10, 2018

Alumnae/i Weekend 2018 will soon be upon us (June 8-10). This year we are celebrating "Western Traditions"!

Remember Picnic in the Beechwoods? Junior garb? Class flag and colors? Beanies (do you still have yours)? Mixers at the Lodge? And one that we all knew and loved: Entertaining for dinner in Alexander (or pre-1962, Clawson) by classes - faculty and senior first, freshman last. Of course, we wore skirts and learned the art of fine dining and serving ...

Alexander Hall is now a "green space," but we are planning to reenact the dining hall tradition in the new Western Dining Commons. You've got to be here as we take you down memory lane.

Fiftieth Anniversary Class of '68, you are hereby challenged to outdo the Class of '67 (20 attendees). You're a year younger, so come out and win that Peabody Cup!

All Westerners: We are in the WCAA's countdown years, so plan to make returning for Reunion an annual trip. You can always count on a wonderful time!

And we will count on seeing you June 8 to 10, 2018!
