Perhaps you saw the StoryCorps MobileBooth that is parked in front of our Physical Plant. Perhaps you saw banners being hung across College Road and around campus that read “The Wellesley Effect,” or the creative new fencing around the construction site outside Pendleton West. And if you peeked inside the Field House, perhaps you saw that it looks nothing like the Field House.
What’s this all about?
We’re rolling out the blue carpet this week (literally!) as we get ready to celebrate Wellesley—and the positive, lasting effect that Wellesley has on women and, through them, on the world. We call this the Wellesley Effect, and tomorrow, we are launching a comprehensive fundraising campaign dedicated to advancing the Wellesley Effect.
Our campaign has been a long time in the making, and I am excited about it. The campaign for Wellesley will make it possible for more generations of women to benefit from Wellesley’s unique learning environment—and that is something worth celebrating!
Even if you’re not on campus tomorrow or this weekend, you won’t be able to miss the Wellesley Effect. So stay tuned—more great things are coming.
