At Wilson College, alumni have the unique opportunity to adopt a new relative by participating in the Aunt/Uncle Program, named in honor of our namesake Sarah Wilson. Alumni volunteer as “Aunts or Uncles” and students sign up to be “nieces or nephews”. An Aunt/Uncle will be in contact with their niece/nephew through a letter/email or an occasional package to brighten a student’s day and to provide encouragement. The program builds bonds between former and current students. Some of the pairings last a semester, some through commencement and others, a lifetime. For decades students have enjoyed developing a relationship with their paired alum; hearing and sharing Wilson stories/traditions, as well as, career and other personal life adventures. For alums, it is an opportunity to remain connected to campus life and give back in a personal way. This connection is perfect for those alums local, regional or a far distance. Traditionally, “Aunt Sarah” was a secret connection with hints and clues to discover identities. However, over the years with new technology, many decide to email, text, Facetime, Skype or even meet face to face for ongoing interaction. A secret connection is still possible with letters or packages going back and forth utilizing staff in the Alumni House. For many, the real tradition is that someone provided this connection to you as a student and now, as an alum, you keep the program alive. We have added “Uncle Wilson” to be inclusive of our Wilson Community. We hope this is the beginning of a special connection to those with shared life journeys at Wilson College!

Be an Aunt Sarah or Uncle Wilson!
Did you know....
I keep a small "stash" of small gifts or gift cards which allows me to be responsive if I learn of a student who is having a rough time or even deserves a congrats of some kind. Faculty or staff give me a heads up on occasion and with your help, I fill a need. If being paired is too much a commitment or you would like to just do something extra. I accept goodies on behalf of my private stash ... I sign from Aunt Sarah. Thank you. -Mb
Click this link, Aunt Sarah / Uncle Wilson Guidelines, to review newly drafted guidelines regarding the Aunt Sarah Program - based on the questions from the last two years.
If you are a returning AUNT and have not yet indicated if you are remaining in the program and which student(s) you are keeping, please email Marybeth Famulare, Director of Alumni Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org If you prefer not to continue at this time, that is important for me to know as well.
