College of Wooster "W" Association


The purpose of the W Association is to:

  1. Support intercollegiate athletics at Wooster.
  2. Honor alumni athletes who are outstanding in their accomplishments and others who have been outstanding supporters of the athletic program of the College.

W Fund

The W Fund is the primary way the W Association supports intercollegiate athletics at Wooster. Annual gifts support more than 500 student-athletes representing the "Black and Gold" on 23 intercollegiate teams at Wooster. Visit our W Fund page for more information and to make a contribution today!


The W Association was founded in 1909 and is made up of men and women who received letters as participants in Wooster’s intercollegiate athletic program, and women who participated in intercollegiate sports before varsity women’s sports were established. Associate membership in the organization will be extended to any person who is interested in supporting the intercollegiate athletic program at The College of Wooster.

Membership Benefits

Upon graduation, all varsity lettermen and letterwomen are issued a W Association card. This card allows the holder to attend all College of Wooster sponsored regular-season home athletic contests free of charge. Varsity letterwinners can request a replacement W Association card by emailing Paul Seling in the office of alumni engagement.
