REUNION 2022, JUNE 23-25

The 2021-2022 academic year ended on a celebratory high note as we welcomed more than 400 new graduates to the WCL alumni family. This year, our office has worked diligently to offer alumni quality benefits and services, print publications like The Advocate and The Champion, career and professional development services such as individual counseling, online resources and monthly webinars, and regional events on the East and West Coasts. We also introduced a new Dean and provided opportunities for alumni to connect with him both in-person and virtually. Our hope was to close the year out in June with an amazing alumni reunion back on-campus.

Unfortunately, due to extremely low registration numbers the alumni reunion is canceled.

Great things are happening at WCL and we encourage you to stay connected via our website and social media channels.
