The event, hosted by Lewis '83 and Shawn Ingall P '21, featured 62 attendees comprised of 10 incoming first-years and parents, current students, and alumni from the Chicago area. Lewis was a roommate of Whalen's during their time at Wesleyan, and his son Eric will come to campus this fall as a Class of 2021.

"I love the summer sendoff events," said Whalen. "They provide incoming students the opportunity to meet both current students and alumni who share advice about their experiences. The fact that Jed Hoyer would attend this event during the peak of MLB season, speaks volumes of the commitment of Wesleyan Alumni to give back to their alma mater."

There was a total of 21 summer sendoffs scheduled this year, with one more remaining on August 20th in Minneapolis, Minn. To view the full list, click HERE.
