Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the Club's contact information?
The best way to reach the W-I-P is to send an email to WCPasadena@alum.wellesley.edu.
What are the benefits of joining the Wellesley-in-Pasadena?
Membership dues play an important role in supporting the club. Membership dues help support the cost of events that build a stronger community among alumnae in the Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties. Membership dues also helps us to make events with fees available at a reduced or no cost to alums who cannot otherwise afford to attend.

How do I find out about what's happening with Wellesley-in-Pasadena?
Wellesley-in-Pasadena sends out monthly email blasts with events happening within our club, highlights from other nearby clubs and shared-interest groups, and news stories shared by community members like you! Make sure that your profile is up to date to receive updates from the club. You can find the latest newsletter in the past newsletter section of the website.
The Wellesley-in-Pasadena events look great! How can I sign up?
Every event listed on the website is open to all alums. If there is a RSVP required to attend the event, you will see a button asking you to "purchase a ticket," although not all ticketed events include a cost. The ticket allows us to know how many people to expect. Recurring events for W-I-P SIGs (book club and wine and potluck) do not require RSVPs, but contact information can be found on the event page so that you can receive the address for that event.
I would like to go to a Wellesley-in-Pasadena event, but cannot afford the registration fee. Can I still attend?
W-I-P endeavors to keep event fees low so that alums do not feel like there is a barrier to participate. If there are circumstances in which the fee prohibits you from otherwise participating, please get in contact with WCPasadena@alum.wellesley.edu in order to get the fee waived. We want to make sure that this is an inclusive space, and do not want registration fees to keep alums from being able to participate fully in the community.
Can the Club include information about my event in its next email?
Due to the large geographic region we cover, we encourage alums to take initiative to create events! Please email WCPasadena@alum.wellesley.edu in order to share your idea for the event and have it added to the calendar. All events are subject to the approval of the board.
How does one get involved with the Wellesley-in-Pasadena Club?
W-I-P is always looking for volunteers. There are many ways to help -- from volunteering at an event, to helping at a college fair, or joining the board. If you're interested in getting involved, please fill out the volunteer interest form. A member of the W-I-P board will contact you when an appropriate opportunity arises.
