Join us October 12-13 for Reunion 2018

Welcome Back To Wheeler!

It’s time to come home to Wheeler for Alumni Weekend and Reunion 2018! Whether it’s your 5th or 80th Reunion there is plenty to see and do over the two days of October 12 & 13 on our beautiful campuses, in Providence and at the Farm in Seekonk. And, I am thrilled to announce we are reviving our “All Alumni Party” - with a bit of a twist - going off campus, as you'll see on the Friday night events listed in the schedule below.
 
On behalf of your Wheeler family, we do hope you will join us to see first hand all the wonderful changes that have taken place since your last visit to campus.  Please register for any or all of the events listed. 
I look forward to seeing everyone!


Carol Graves Cimilluca ’59
Alumni Association Board President, Wheeler Trustee
