Legacy Graduates

Alumni are the heart of Widener University’s history, and what better way to recognize this than when descendants of Widener University alumni graduate each May and become a part of a special tradition at Widener.

Who is a WU legacy graduate?

A Widener University legacy is a student or alumnus/a who has a parent, grandparent, or sibling who graduated from Widener University.

Who is considered a WU legacy alumnus/a?

Daughters, sons, granddaughters, grandsons, step-children, and step-grandchildren of graduates from Widener University, Pennsylvania Military College, Penn Morton College, Widener College, and/or Brandywine College are considered Widener legacies.
