Only two of them would speak to me for attribution. Both of them have an intestinal fortitude that would be useful in trench warfare.
"The Wellesley brand, I'm all about it. It has gotten me jobs," said Pia Norman Thompson, Class of 1991. But when it comes to voting for Hillary, "I can't." Does she get backlash from her friends? "They ignore me. They don't engage."
"She should be in jail," said classmate Patricia DeAngelis, the former prosecutor of Rensselaer County, New York. "As a former prosecutor, she should be indicted right now," said DeAngelis, a Republican, seemingly without any concern about upsetting her classmates.
A man once pleaded guilty to plotting to abduct DeAngelis, allegedly planning to hold her as a slave and then murder her, so facing off against aghast Wellesley women may not seem so frightening.
DeAngelis goes further than anyone else — willing to say on the record that she will vote for Trump. He wasn't her first choice for the Republican ticket, but if the other choice is Hillary, she will vote for him. She said she thinks Wellesley is similar to the country in that "a lot of people are voting for Trump, but are afraid to say it."
Speaking of Trump, the Class of 1991 was particularly curious about classmate Janna Little, married to House Speaker Paul Ryan, who announced he would vote for Trump the day before reunion started. His wife did not attend the event. Paul Ryan's office told CNBC that she would not comment for this report.
A member of the Class of '66 told me she will vote for Trump, not because she likes him, but because not voting would help Hillary.
But she spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of the backlash: "I have good memories of this place. I don't want to wreck it."
On Sunday morning, all the alums gather on College Road for the annual reunion parade. Everyone is dressed in white except for one article, a hat or a scarf, in their class color.
It's another tear-jerker as younger women watch and cheer the members of the oldest classes, who get to march first. Ladies from the Class of 1941 and 1946 ride in antique cars and wave pompoms in their class colors as the younger woman cheer.
Former Wellesley President Nan Keohane is marching with her Class of 1961. As she walks, she recounts what a Wellesley husband told her once: "I never met a woman who went to Wellesley, who ever got over it."
CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera is a member of the Wellesley Class of 1991. While reporting this story, she was not brave enough to admit to her classmates that she is reluctant to vote for Hillary Clinton. Caruso-Cabrera is undecided as to what she will do in November.
