**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

Wishing our alumni, students, family & friends a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

Eliza Wheaton was known to traditionally bake a sponge cake every time she entertained. This is her sponge cake recipe that can be found in the Boston Cooking School Cook Book, written by her lifelong friend and alumna from the Wheaton Female Seminary in 1864, Mary Bailey Lincoln.

Update: In a previous post we called on the Wheaton community to assist Professor Kathy Morgan in sending masks to Ramya Chaturvedi ’21, who is currently helping distribute PPE in her small village in North India.

Professor Morgan would like to thank all those who have generously donated. Pictured here is just a portion of masks that she has accepted. Professor Morgan is still continuing her efforts of supplying 1,000 masks to Ramya. If you are interested in helping, please email us at [email protected].

Ebony Williams ’08 believes the link, the thread, the piece of yarn, that connects her life work is her belief in process. While it’s common that human beings spend much of our time focused on the problem and the solution to obstacles that arise from living, the middle part, the journey we go through to reach our desired end point is where we learn the most.

Join Ebony virtually as she discusses the focus of her work, creating opportunities for individuals to indulge in the luxury of their process in order to heal. Wednesday, November 18 at 5 p.m. ET. Register here: https://bit.ly/32SDqR6 Arts at Wheaton
