Help us welcome the incoming class of 2018 to the Western family!

e are inviting alumni to join in our New Student Orientation. We are looking for alumni representatives from each class to help welcome our incoming freshman class to the university during the “Entering the Gates” Ceremony on:

Monday, August 25, 2014
WCSU Midtown Campus

We are inviting participating alumni to a reception at 12 p.m. in Irfan Kathwari Honors House, located on the Midtown campus. The “Entering the Gates” procession will begin at 1:30 p.m. where alumni will welcome the incoming class as they proceed through the WestConn gates, symbolically representing their entrance to the university. A short ceremony will follow in the Midtown Quadrangle where alumni will present the class of 2018 with their class flag. Afterwards alumni will have the opportunity to mingle with new students.

We need our graduates of the past — you and your peers — to welcome the Class of 2018 as they embark upon one of the most exciting experiences of their life — their college years. If you’re interested in participating, please call the Alumni Office at (203) 837-8290 or e-mail

We hope you will consider representing your class at this special event and welcoming the Class of 2018 to WCSU.
