Wilson Adjusts Institutional Voice
On Oct. 20, 2018, the Wilson College Board of Trustees approved identifying Wilson graduates as alumni instead of alumnae/i in all institutional messaging and publications. This action brings the College’s institutional voice in line with its strategic goals and supports Wilson’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity on campus. It does not impact any requirements of the Alumnae Association of Wilson College (AAWC), which is a separate 501(c)(3) organization.
The change will be phased into all written and electronic materials as updates and reprints are needed.
Every Monday from Oct 22 to Nov 12 - Common Hour: Food Matters
Oct 19-20 - Homecoming & Family Weekend
Oct 19 - Donor Recognition Dinner (invite only)
Oct 20 - IHSA Hunt Seat Team Home Show
Nov 3 & 4 - Veterinary Medical Technology Club Dog Wash

Fred Beans Gallery, James A. Michener Art Museum
A remarkable gift of 27 works from Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest in 1999 enabled the Michener Art Museum to highlight the significant contributions to the development of modern art in America as seen through the prism of our region. Artists such as Charles Frederick Ramsey, Louis Stone, Charles Evans, Lloyd Ney, and Charles Rosen were actively engaged in the artistic dialogue that resulted in major shifts in American art at mid-century. For the first time in thirty years, these works will be on view together in one gallery, underscoring the lasting contributions of our region’s artists to the evolution of 20th-century American art.
