Q: How do I get started using the Alumni Online Community?

The Online Community is an extension of this, including access to webpages geared specifically for Wesley alumni that require a login. The top navigational menu on the Online Community webpages includes links back to the main Wesley College website at www.wesley.edu, where you can find information on all other campus departments, programs and services, including Admissions, Academics & Registrar and Athletics, among others.


Services for Alumni and Friends

Q: How do I become a member of the Wesley College Alumni Association?

A: Alumni who graduate from Wesley are automatically members of the Alumni Association. There are no fees or memberships cards. All members are entitled to various alumni services that the College provides. Please visit the Benefits and Services page for more information.

If you attended Wesley and did not graduate but feel a close connection to the College and wish to be a member of the Alumni Association and receive Wesley mailings, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement.

Q: How can I find and contact classmates or Wesley friends with whom I have lost touch?

A: Because Wesley College’s privacy policy limits the release of alumni contact information, even to other alumni, the best way to find classmates or friends is through the alumni directory within the Online Community. This searchable listing of all Wesley College alumni on record provides the most recently updated alumni information and is the most direct way to get in touch with other Wesley alumni.

Just click on the Search for Alumni (Online Directory) link under "Member Tools" in the navigational menu. You must first be logged in to access this feature. Once you are directed to the Search page, you can type in the field(s) by which you wish to search (Name- First, Maiden, Last; Class Year; Registered Online status) and then click the Search button at the bottom of the page. The system will pull up an alphabetical list of all records that meet that specific criterion from which you can then select the correct individual. Further instructions are available on the Search help bar by clicking on the blue icon on the Search page.

Once the search results appear on the screen, you can hover with your mouse over any of the icons to the right of an individual’s name to select among the various options (i.e. send an email, view photos, add to friends list) or click on the individual’s name to view his/her profile. Deceased alumni are marked with a yellow ribbon icon to the right of their name.

If you are unable to find an individual’s information through the online directory online, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement for assistance in contacting the alumnus on your behalf (i.e. forwarding a letter or email to the address on record).

Q: How do I submit my news or announcements for Class Notes?

A: Wesley has a listing of Class Notes on the Online Community and also has a Class Notes section in Wesley magazine. Alumni are invited to submit to either and if you submit your Class Notes online, you can check off a box to have it included in print as well. Class Notes online is an ongoing posting system where you can submit news, photos and announcements on your own at any time. Please click here to be directed to the Class Notes page (or you can select "Submit" or "Search" in the Class Notes section on the News page). From the Class Notes page you can type in your news in the box provided. To upload a photo with the class notes, please click on "Browse" to find the digital photo file from your computer. Then select "Preview" to view the note before submitting. 

You can also send a Class Note to be included in Wesley magazine. Please include your name, maiden name (if applicable), class year and daytime phone number along with your news as you would like it to be printed and email it to us or mail to the address below. Digital photos are encouraged. We prefer that they be in a in .tiff or .jpg file format with 300 dpi or above resolution. Non-digital photos are also welcome and can be returned to the address provided, if requested. We prefer 4 x 6 photos or larger. Please mail submissions to:

Office of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving

Dover, DE 19901

Q: I am not receiving Wesley alumni magazine or other mail from the College. How do I get put on the mailing list?

A: If you are not receiving mail from us, chances are that we do not have your current address in our records. The best way to notify us of information changes and to ensure that you will receive future mailings is to update your personal profile on the Online Community. Once you are logged in, the bottom of the homepage will show the current information we have on record, as well as a link to update. Please provide your current address, phone number, email address and other information in the appropriate profile fields. These changes or additions are processed by Advancement staff and updated in your permanent Wesley College alumni record. Please allow up to 10 working days for information updates to take effect.

Q: What does the Wesley Fund support and how does my gift make a difference?

A: Every gift to Wesley makes a difference and collectively, the gifts of hundreds of alumni and donors make a huge impact and make it possible for Wesley to provide a quality education to the next generation of leaders. Additionally, overall alumni participation is an important criterion when Wesley is considered for funding from foundations and corporations so your involvement, at any level, is critical. Visit the Support for Annual Giving page for more information on what the Wesley Fund supports and the various giving opportunities.

Q: How can I make a gift to Wesley College?

A: All information about giving to Wesley can be found under "Support Wesley" in the navigational menu, including the various options to make a gift.
