Harambee House Celebrates Ethos' 50th Anniversary

Wellesley College was forever changed 50 years ago when Ethos was founded. Since its inception, Ethos has played a pivotal role in providing students of African descent with social, academic, and political support. We honored this significant historical milestone March 6-8, 2018 by bringing together student, alumnae, faculty and stuff to celebrate Ethos' 50th Anniversary. Thank you for being here as we embraced our history, connected with oour community and explored the power of the Wellesley Effect.
