Wharton Graduate Emeritus Society

Highlights: Wharton Emeritus Luncheon May 16, 2015

Welcome

Our updated WGES website includes a number of interesting items for you:

The Home page features a graphic of the Off-Broadway play “The 39 Steps” (a stage play of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie of the same name). On November 18, 2015, WGES members will see that matinee play. It will be preceded with a luncheon at Paul & Jimmy’s Restaurant and explanation by Andrew Shaifer, son of WGES Emeritus Chair, Carl Shaifer, who will enlighten us on the Off-Broadway theater. Details are available here.
