Make it a habit to check your Wesleyan e-mail on a daily basis, especially once you arrive on campus, but even now. E-mail is a medium for official University communications through which you will receive important messages from offices, such as the Registrar, Student Accounts, and Financial Aid, from class deans and administrators (& the President too!), and from your faculty advisor and instructors. As the Student Handbook states, “[T]he University’s primary means of communicating with students is through their Wesleyan e-mail accounts. Students are responsible for reading and responding to e-mail from University officials.” (P. 21)
Also get in the habit of checking out this class blog on a daily basis. It too will serve as an important source of information for you not only this summer, but also throughout your four years here. Check out as well President Roth’s blog at http://roth.blogs.wesleyan.edu for his thoughts and insights about issues on campus, nationally, and around the world.
Checking your e-mail and class blog on a daily basis is a good habit to acquire!
