The purpose of WGES is not just to foster greater ties between senior alumni and the university, but to actively take part in helping manage the alumni community as purposeful, dedicated ambassadors. The Emeritus Society plans and arranges programs, including informative sessions led by notable and interesting Wharton faculty and alumni, as well as receptions, parties and dinners.
The total focus is on greater communication and interaction between Wharton and its alumni and increased participation through new, exciting and dramatic events and activities. New ideas are always welcome. Education and fellowship go hand in hand throughout life. The Society aims to enhance the benefits of both for our school and ourselves as we move through our later years.
