In addition to the great leadership opportunities noted previously by Elisa Del Valle from the Student Activities Office and Dean Rick Culliton, new students should consider getting involved in the Wesleyan Student Assembly (WSA).
Joining the WSA is a great way to get to know Wesleyan. Members of the WSA focus on important issues and projects to benefit the student body. They are your representatives, but also work closely with the administration and get to know the ins and outs of the University. The WSA is a diverse body always looking for new members who truly want to make a difference at Wes. To learn more, attend one of their orientation sessions, listed below. Elections occur during the second week of classes, so whether or not you run, make sure you vote for your class representatives!
The full election timeline is: Information sessions Sept. 3 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.; Petitions due: Sept. 11; Elections open: Sept. 14 at 12 a.m.; Elections close: Sept. 18 at 11:59 p.m.; First WSA meeting: Sept. 20.
