Looking back on her years at Coe, Dimis Ehninger Wyman '59 most remembers "Wonderful professors I kept in touch with." She is also upfront about overall impressions, saying, "I loved Coe." While here, she was active in the performance of dramatics, President of the Independent Students Association, and a founding member of Coe Witches. Dimis understands the value of the education Coe gives, and was especially thankful for the opportunity to get to know professors and understand their values. Those relationships were among her most memorable experiences of Coe. She said, "I am very much in favor of the small college liberal arts experience. You're close to everybody."
After graduating from Coe, Dimis began what became a forty year relationship with a foster child named Zoe, passing on the values and experiences of her education to the next generation. She also maintained close ties with her former roommate, many of her Coe friends, and even some professors. Dimis has been active in Chicago area alumni events and is a member of the Heritage Club. She feels the critical need for alumni to look back on their own experiences at Coe, consider the value to them, and to make that experience continually possible by giving back.
