What else do we have up our sleeves? We have ordered a big pile of WDCV gear so you can leave Dickinson and promote your love of all things WDCV. We will have free buttons and stickers and we will be selling t-shirts (at very reasonable prices!). All of our great WDCV exec staff and DJs will also be wearing WDCV shirts so ask any of them if you need directions or help finding what WDCV events are going on over the weekend.

Finally, if you haven’t filled out our Alumni Survey yet, please do so! We would love to hear about what you are currently up to and all about your time at WDCV!

Keep connected with us!

See you on September 29th!

WDCV 50th Anniversary-Alumni & Homecoming Weekend Updates!

Hello WDCV Alumni!!

Thanks again for filling out WDCV’s alumni survey and keeping in touch!  We wanted to update you on our plans for our 50th Anniversary festivities.

Dickinson College’s Alumni Weekend is just around the corner (June 8th & 9th) and today (May 25th) is the last day to register for the weekend.  WDCV will be holding a few events including a live broadcast on Britton Plaza Friday June 8th from 1-3pm and an Open House Saturday June 9th from 1-3pm.  We will be showcasing our vast archive of images, newspaper clippings and other memorabilia we have collected from WDCV’s last 50 years.

It’s not too late to share your personal collection with us!  Please email if you have anything you might want to donate to WDCV or make a copy for us to have.  If you are coming out for the weekend, bring your stuff along and we can try to make copy while you are here!  If you know of any WDCV alums that haven’t connected with us, please forward this on to them too!

We are hoping to connect with a few of you attending from the class of 1962.  We are celebrating 50 years right along with you and thank you for helping to get WDCV started!

No worries if you can’t make it out for Alumni Weekend because this is just a warm up to our big plans for Homecoming Weekend (September 29th).  We are hoping WDCV alums will connect with each other and plan to come out in groups.  We have heard such great stories through the alumni survey and we want to here all of the details of your time at WDCV.  Mark your calendar because here is what we have planned:


  • Live Broadcast from the Football Game
  • Sports Broadcasters Meet and Greet at Biddle Field
  • Live Broadcasts on Britton Plaza
  • WDCV Open House & Alumni DJing
  • WDCV 50 Year Archive Display
  • WDCV Alumni Reception

While you are here, pick up your WDCV gear!  We will have free buttons as well as t-shirts and other goodies for sale.  Thanks again for supporting WDCV-FM all of these years.  We can’t wait to see you soon!!!!
