The (amazing) Network: Wellesley’s illustrious alumnae—sort of intimidating at first, but then just inspiring.

April Alumnae Gatherings for Admitted Students

See if there is an alumnae gathering for admitted students in your area in the coming weeks. If so, we invite you and your parents to join us. It's always fun to meet alumnae, in part because they're still as excited about Wellesley as the day they graduated!

Wellesley's Illustrious Alumnae—Just a Glimpse

The co-founder of Zipcar. A NASA Space Shuttle pilot and commander. Korea's first female ambassador. A former COO of Colgate-Palmolive. Two secretaries of state. Several Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists. The cofounder of City Year. The director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch. The executive director of Partners in Health. An Apple board member. And so on. There are thousands more doing less headline-y things; you will meet them; you will rely on them for guidance and sustenance and actual shelter. Here's the important part: they were once exactly where you are.

An Extraordinary Network Ready to Help You

As a Wellesley graduate, you'll join an extraordinary network, a sisterhood for a lifetime. Our extensive network will help with career or graduate school exploration or searches. Many students find internships through alumnae, and young graduates often find their first job or apartment thanks to an alum. While the Wellesley student experience is fantastic, it is the supportive network of alumnae who make the all-nighters and 25-page papers all worth it in the end! Browse internships at the Center for Work and Service.  Read about the College's introduction of the next generation of the Wellesley Alumnae Network on LinkedIn.
