Muhlenberg Women's Weekend


Muhlenberg's first Women's Weekend was June 9-11, 2017. After 60 years of co-education, the College hosted a weekend of engaging activity and discussion, allowing guests to deepen their relationship to the College and each other. The event opened the door to nurture an existing network of alumnae and cultivate lifelong relationships. Muhlenberg women enjoyed a weekend of education, fun and inspiration to live, learn and lead.


Schedule Highlights

Friday, June 9


Optional activities included golf, campus tours, massage and more . On Friday evening, attendees received a very special welcome reception that highlighted the trailblazers who established a women’s presence at Muhlenberg.

Saturday, June 10

Saturday provided a day of programming engaged guests beyond simply listening to lectures - the offered sessions were created and facilitated by alumnae who learned just as much from the attendees. After a day of stimulating interaction between Muhlenberg Women of all ages and backgrounds, Diane Williams, Muhlenberg's first lady, hosted the group in her home for hors d'euvres before dinner and an exciting performance event. 

LIVE activities explored the artistic, creative and spiritual side of being a woman.

LEARN conversations empowered attendees to practice the skills, ideas and habits that ensure a healthy, successful life and career.
