You're Always Welcome

Alumni Engagement’s mission is to connect alumni with each other, with W&L, and to provide interesting avenues for lifelong learning. While we can’t be together in person, we want you to have the latest highlights of our programming.

  • Adhering to the University’s policies and protocols for campus visitors during the pandemic, we regret that all on-campus alumni events have been canceled through May 5, 2021. This includes Five Star Festival/Institute for Honor, Tom Wolfe Weekend and Alumni Weekend. We intend to have robust virtual offerings in place of these in-person events.
