**RAISE YOUR VOICE. TELL YOUR STORY** Do you hold Perkins Loans, commercially-held FFEL loans, or private loans? The CARES act does not provide COVID-19 related relief for these. Roughly 9 million federal student loan borrowers have at least one loan not covered by the CARES Act. The Hildreth Institute, a higher education nonprofit research center, is calling attention to how limitations to the CARES Act's student loan provisions may cause financial hardship for borrowers while protecting lenders. Would you like to share how CARES ACT limitations are affecting you? What sort of financial relief do you need? Please send me a DM and I'll respond. We hope to amplify the real stories of ALL student debt holders and the consequences of financing higher education with loans.

Hello, Wheaton Alumni, Happy Tuesday! Sending Love, Light, and Strength your way! I'm Asia Cruz, Class of 2014. Currently, I'm a High School Educator at a Charter School in the South Bronx. My title is a Youth Development Specialist and Career Readiness Coordinator. In the midst of two days, we had to learn the platform that students will be using for our online classes and test it out today! Day 1 was successful, I was able to do one-one sessions and advise students. It was stressful at first but worth it! Checking in and speaking to all my students brought me JOY! I will like to pay it forward! While you are homeschooling/remotely/digitally educating your teens/students/kids/family members, if you need any assistance and/or more resources, please reach out to me. I will be happy to support and answer questions. Also, if you will like to connect and collaborate in any way let me know! We WILL get through this! #bettertogether #BronxEducator
Meant to post this on my earlier post but I don't see that one. UPDATE: I spoke with the director of alumni relations, Courtney Shurtleff, who was quite lovely. I was shocked, though, to hear that PCI will be contacting alumni again not once more, but two more times, to gather our histories. I should have suggested that the project be walked back, but I know that it's too late for that and they are all in. It's really too bad. She acknowledged only that the sense of urgency in the postcards was off-putting, and said they'd dialed it back based on the A/B test. However, I'm not sure thought that that this whole endeavor was a big mistake. Things I also learned: 900 alumni have provided personal narratives, and about 300 have bought the book (which isn't billed right away, so expect people to get pissed off again in about six months). It is, moreover, unclear to me exactly what their goal is: if it's to increase engagement, it succeeded in annoying (engaging) a significant number of alumni.
[cross-posted]: OMG. After yet ANOTHER email asking me to update my info and provide my oral history, I sent the alumni office this email, which I wanted to share in case anyone here is interested or has a similar (or different) take. Not sure why, but I find this whole project 100% annoying. _______ TO: [email protected] SUBJ: PUBLISHING CONCEPTS INC. To Whom It May Concern, As someone who works in alumni relations (not at Wheaton), I am very concerned that my alma mater is associating itself with this antiquated and sketchy company (see employee reviews on Glassdoor if you are unfamiliar with PCI's high-sales-pitch methods). If you wanted simply to collect oral histories, just have people send in short videos they shoot themselves (we've done something similar at my place of employment). You can even embed this functionality right on your website. And if you want to verify data, send out emails that have our data populated right in the email, then send us to a form where WE can input any corrections ourselves. This isn't rocket science in the year 2020. Gathering OUR content that will then be complied and sold BACK to us for an exorbitant amount in BOOK FORMAT is not only uber retro (think 1980s); it reflects badly on the college and has engendered significant bad vibes among alumni, as evidenced by social media posts. This flat-footed attempt at engaging alumni was ill-advised at best and deleterious to the college's reputation at worst. I'm sorry Wheaton got itself into this mess. I wish the alumni office the best as it moves forward from this debacle. Thanks for your attention, Mari Mari Megias, Class of 1991

You may have read about senior Ramya Chaturvedi’s generous efforts to distribute PPE to her community members in her small village in North India to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Professor of Psychology, Kathy Morgan is making as many masks as possible to assist Ramya in supplying protection to the thousands who are unable to afford such devices on their own. Professor Morgan is calling on Wheaton sewists to join her in the goal of sending 1,000 masks or more to Ramya.

To obtain the mailing address to send the masks to, please email our office: [email protected]

Senior Ramya Chaturvedi '21 never imagined that she’d spend her final fall semester at Wheaton so far away from Norton. In Mathura, a small village in North India, Ramya is spending her weekends distributing gloves, sanitizers and masks she purchased on her own to help stop the spread of the virus. https://bit.ly/2GYRjoZ

Did you know? Emerson Dining Hall, built in 1908, was once featured in Good Housekeeping as one of the most beautiful dining halls in the US. Paneled with nine-foot-high oak wainscoting, containing four large fireplaces, the serving rooms had warming ovens and tea, coffee and chocolate dispensers. Cereals were cooked overnight in “great cauldrons.”
Originally, Emerson had an open terrace used for outdoor teas, from which spectators could watch plays performed in the Dimple. The terrace was roofed over and transformed into a glassed-in porch in 1923-24 to accommodate increased enrollment.

Larcom Hall was built in 1908 and was another beautiful residence hall brought to the Wheaton College campus.

Did you know that Larcom Hall was named after Lucy Larcom, who is best known at Wheaton for introducing the study of English Literature at Wheaton back in 1854?

Also, did you know that the “false-teeth” roof over the main door was removed during Christmas vacation in 1939? Several May Day queens and their courts sat beneath that roof!

Did you know that Everett Hall was built in 1926? This residence hall was named for the first dean of the college, Dean Ida Josephine Everett. Dean Everett was bestowed the honor of lighting the first fire upon its hearth at the building’s dedication in the fall of 1926.

Also, did you know Everett Heights has served many purposes for the college? This area of campus has been a dining hall, a bookstore and eventually was converted to student rooms in 1993.

#wheatonma #wheatonmaarchives

Did you know that Chapin Hall was the first brick building at Wheaton?

Built in 1900, it was the first instillation of young Boston architect, Ralph Adams Cram, campus plan for Wheaton. The money to build Chapin Hall came from Mrs. Wheaton’s annual gift of $10,000. However, her gift did not account for the additional expense to furnish this residence hall. Chapin Hall was dedicated on March 7, 1901, and was one of the first named buildings on campus.
