Wayland welcomes all alumni to campus October 13–15, 2023! Please make plans to join us for an in-person weekend of events highlighting everything that makes the Wayland experience special.
All alumni are invited to attend and help us celebrate the milestone reunions (classes ending in a “3” or a “8”).
