Dear Class of 2016,
This is it. Somehow, through all the senior seminars, papers and "studying" in the library, we’ve (almost) made it through. Although we’re all going to miss different parts of our time here—be it completing morning practice as the sun rises or late night rehearsals—there have been commonalities that unite us. Some sort of “Wheaton-ness.”
The Senior Class Gift is our way to honor that connection. A month-long campaign before Senior Week, it’s 2016’s opportunity to come together as a class and give back to improve our community for future Wheaties. Donations to the Senior Class Gift go to the Wheaton Fund to secure financial aid for incoming students, support sustainability programs on campus, enrich our library network, fund original research, and guarantee that Wheaton can best support the diverse interests of its undergraduate student body. By participating in this year’s campaign, we are enriching the experiences of classes to come by ensuring they have the same variety of opportunities we had.
Our final semester here is ours to shape. Theses, job applications, soul-searching, eat-pray-loving. The time we have left as undergrads will be frenzied and thrilling. Enjoy your time in the dimple, enjoy life before apartment hunting, and enjoy being able to give back to our incredible home.
Your Senior Class Gift Co-Chairs,
Tony Bowden ’16
Lual Charles ’16
Hannah Dalglish ’16
Omobola "B" Phillips ’16
