WhitMail Project

WhitMail Project - postcards

You can make a difference in the life of a senior in just a few minutes with WhitMail!
From now until May 8, 2015, the Alumni Office will be collecting postcards from alumni across the world with words of encouragement for a graduating senior. As the Class of 2015 enters their last round of finals in the spring, we will send each senior a postcard from alumni. It’s a simple but powerful way to connect with the next generation of alumni and make a difference for a stressed out senior. Learn how you can participate.
