Welcome to the Chicago Wellesley Club!

Our mission is to connect Wellesley alumnae with one another and with the college. We do this through a range of activities and events such as: book and supper clubs; community service; presentations by alumnae and Wellesley professors; assisting with Wellesley admissions; meet-ups at bars, concerts, theaters, museums, and other city venues; and our annual Holiday Tea. There is something for everyone and new ideas are always welcome!
Annual dues, our only source of income, help make these activities possible. If you are not already a dues-paid member, I hope you will consider becoming one. You can join here.
Other opportunities for financial support include contributions to our club’s scholarship fund, which helps make a Wellesley education possible for a Chicago-area student, and the Wellesley College Book Award program, which helps introduce Wellesley to outstanding high school junior girls. You can learn more about these programs and contribute here
Of course, none of this would be possible without our generous volunteers. Whether you want to go all in and serve on the board or do just one thing one time, I encourage you to consider raising your hand to help out.  
Please contact me at I welcome your ideas and suggestions.
I hope to see you at a Chicago Wellesley Club event soon!
Warm regards,
Charlotte Luke Christian '76
CWC President, 2018-2020
