Tuesday, April 3rd is our day of giving at Illinois Wesleyan and this year’s theme is
Think Bigger! 
Not only is today a day for giving, it’s a day to celebrate IWU and all of the things that make it special.  
Last year, our class had 29 donors, let’s try for 35 this year!  We contributed an amazing $29,887. Our goal for this year is $33,000! Think of the impact this can make for IWU students and their families!

Darcia Kunkel ’91 released both paperback and kindle versions of her debut book, 40-Something and Fried in April. With humor and honesty, Darcia documents the ups and downs of a 40-something mother of three, wife, author, and editor. A former military spouse, she writes on topics including motherhood, Christian inspiration, military spouse transition, practical cooking, and the struggles of perfectionism.

You can find this and more in the Spring 2017 edition of the Illinois Wesleyan University Magazine – the excerpt above was on page 32. 

Darcia asked to share this on our class page as she has many ties to the Class of 1993!
