WIC Alumni Association

Inspiring students and alumni to share a lifelong commitment to, pride in and passion for
West Island College. Forever Wolves.

As a graduate of West Island College, you are a part of a unique and accomplished group. WIC Graduates go on to do wonderful things: create local businesses, argue in front of the Supreme Court, compete as elite athletes, raise families (including the next WIC generation), and more.

The WIC Alumni Association is here to serve as ambassadors between the past and the future, the alumni, and the school. We foster lifelong relationships with our alumni, and WIC faculty and staff, by providing opportunities to be engaged with the WIC community that ultimately support the College’s purpose and promise.
