As IWU celebrates Titans Around the World at Homecoming this weekend, we will also honor our alumni who served worldwide as veterans and first-responders, including Captain Ryan A. Beaupre ’95.

Presenting the colors will be American Legion Color Guard Post 635 Normal and Post 56 from Bloomington. The ceremony will take place this Saturday, October 14th at 12:45 p.m., prior to the Homecoming Football game at Tucci Stadium and will include the National Anthem sung by Wayne Messmer ’72.  Classmates and friends can view the ceremony on streaming video live at https://portal.stretchinternet.com/iwu/.

Tove (Bichel) Thomas ’70 was elected over the summer as the Kappa Delta Sorority National Vice President-Alumnae. This is a great honor and responsibility to be elected to the sorority’s National Council, all of her Illinois Wesleyan Kappa Delta sisters are so very proud of her.
Here is a photo of Tove at the National Convention where she was elected. She is on the far right in the photo. Pictured with her on the left of the photo is Illinois Wesleyan alumna, Julie Blackwood Totten ’95 who currently volunteers on the National Leadership Team of Kappa Delta as an Accounting Specialist. Beside her is Halley Shanley ’18, current Illinois Wesleyan student and chapter President of Kappa Delta on campus. They are pictured with the Illinois Wesleyan Omicron Chapter flag for Kappa Delta, which includes the IWU seal.
Congratulations, Tove!

Hi Class of ’70!

Just a reminder that today is All In For Wesleyan!  This is an important day for IWU!  But All In for Wesleyan is more than a one-day giving campaign – it’s a day to celebrate Illinois Wesleyan and all of the things that make it special.

Many of you remember our 45th Reunion a couple of years ago

As we move toward our 50th reunion in 3 years, we want to support IWU now for all the good it has done for us in our lives and all the good memories we have from our years there.

I know that many of you wait to give money until this day.  As a special bonus, any gift you make today at www.iwu.edu/all-in will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100,000!) by Dorothea Bilder ’62, doubling your impact on Illinois Wesleyan!

If you are into social media, you can show your Titan Pride by making a gift and encourage others to participate during All In using #AllInForWesleyan.

Please get involved and stay tuned to the fun and excitement throughout the day.

Your gifts make a difference for IWU students!
