We want to hear from you
Please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I get the App?
Visit the Download Page and choose your platform. You can also search for “wesleyan alumni” in the iOS App Store (Apple) and the Google Play store (Android).
What does it do?
The Alumni Mobile App provides you with fast and easy access to Wesleyan’s Alumni Directory from your phone or tablet. Easily locate alumni near you using the map, or search by city, name, company, school, class year, sport or fraternity. Email or call directly from the app. Connect your LinkedIn account and see LinkedIn data on profiles as you browse the directory. Send information updates for yourself and others to Wesleyan.
The Wesleyan Alumni Mobile App is available for Apple devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) running iOS 5 or later, and Android devices running Android 2.1 or later.
Eligibility and verification
The Alumni Mobile App uses email verification on your device to ensure that users requesting access are alumni, students or faculty of Wesleyan University. If we have your email address on file you will receive a verification link on your phone or tablet as part of the authentication step. If we don’t have your email address you’ll receive an alert—simply fill out the support request form with your preferred address and check “Alumni Mobile App” and we’ll get right back to you.
Who can see my information?
Update (Feb. 10, 2014): Street-level addresses are now hidden. Map markers haven’t moved, but precise information is no longer discoverable. If this has been a concern for you, please let us know what you think of the change.
Only Wesleyan University alumni and students. While the alumni app is available on the iOS App Store and Google Play, you have to be an alumnus or current student to login. In fact, the mobile app has the same access and privacy controls as the Alumni Directory in Wesconnect. If you modified your profile in Wesconnect you should have received an email asking if you want the same fields removed from the mobile app, and if so which ones. (We weren't able to do this automatically due to technical limitations, but we're taking steps to correct that and will be able to do so in future.) The bottom line is if you want to change which fields are displayed in the app, just let us know and we’ll make that change right away.
Can I change my profile?
Yes! We may not have your latest profile information, or you may prefer that your profile only shows certain fields. We can update your profile for you. If you have chosen to remove fields on your profile in Wesconnect, and would like those preferences carried over to the mobile app, please let us know which items to remove (e.g. home phone number, home address, etc.). You can do that simply by filling out the support form and checking “Alumni Mobile App.” From within the app the easiest way to make changes to your profile is to go to the Nav Menu (top left) > My Profile, scroll to the bottom and tap “Suggest an Update.” Your message will be sent to our support staff your changes will appear once they have been processed into the Wesleyan alumni database.
Can I opt out?
Yes, you can contact us at email@example.com to opt out of the Alumni Mobile App. When you opt out of the app your record will not show up in the Wesleyan Alumni Mobile App directory.
