All the stars were aligned for this one: beautiful setting, beautiful weather, great friends and most interesting talks by Kim Bottomly, college president, and Andrew Shennan, provost and dean. Both were generous in the time they gave us, as they provided a glimpse into what’s ahead as WellesleyX—the newest member of edX, the Harvard-MIT online learning collaborative—is launched this fall. ‘58’s questions were numerous. We also heard more about Wellesley 2025, a “major undertaking that will help…preserve what is best about our buildings and landscape, and reimagine and reinvigorate …living, learning, and research spaces for the 21st century."  Keep your eye on the college website for more about both these initiatives.
