0From the President...

Thank you for visiting the New York Wellesley Club’s web site! 

The New York Wellesley Club (NYWC) exists to serve the Wellesley community in New York City. Our mission is to help NYC alums stay connected to each other, and to Wellesley College. Founded in 1890, we have proudly pursued this mission for 125 years.  

Today, the NYWC serves over 2,700 alumnae in NYC’s five boroughs. Our alums reflect the energy, ambition, and diversity of this vibrant and dynamic city.  The NYWC includes civic and business leaders, philanthropists and politicians, physicians and scientists, and authors and artists – all of whom share a deep appreciation for the pivotal role Wellesley has played in their lives. 

We invite alums and students to tap into the NYC Wellesley network through organizing a variety of events each year – including lectures, museum visits, happy hours, brunches, career nights, service days, and special events like our annual holiday party. We also support Wellesley College’s admissions efforts through organizing admissions events, facilitating interviews for NYC students, administering the NYC Book Awards program, and visiting college fairs. 

We hope you will consider getting involved with the Club and taking advantage of all we have to offer.

President, NYC Wellesley Club
