Waste Not’s Campus Tag Sale — 9/4 & 9/5

Waste Not! is an EON (Environmental Organizers Network)-sponsored effort run by the Sustainability Interns to reduce unnecessary waste during move-out and encourage items to be recycled from year to year.  At the end of the spring semester, EON collects unwanted items and then, in the fall, we hold a HUGE tag sale to sell those items back to the community, thereby keeping valuable items out of the landfill and in circulation. Proceeds from the sale will go to local charities and Sustainability at Wesleyan.  We’ll be holding the sale September  4 and 5 from 1-5 p.m. each day at the Spurrier-Synder Hockey Rink in the Freeman Athletic Center. It’s always an amazing event and everything goes quickly, so arrive as early as possible!

If you have any questions regarding the tag sale or sustainability at Wesleyan, feel free to shoot us an email at WESustainability@gmail.com.  We look forward to seeing you all there!!

Celebrating Students 2013!

We want to celebrate your accomplishments and achievements!

If you did something this summer about which you are proud or that was a real learning experience, let me know!  If one of your  Wes friends did, let me know!  Whether it was related to work, travel, school, an internship or a special event, let’s get it up on “Celebrating Students,” the virtual column that showcases and shares your experience.  How cool is that?

Jim Kubat: Soph Liaison to the CRC

The CRC liaison with the sophomore class is Jim Kubat, Associate Director and Pre-Law Advisor.  He provides general career advising, with a particular focus on careers in law and public service (government and the private nonprofit sector). 

 Jim says, “If a student has not visited the CRC at least once during the first year, it is essential that he/she comes in during the fall of sophomore year and meets with one of our counselors for a full-length appointment.  We want to see everyone: those students with no career plans and those who are further along with their planning.  Explore your options, discuss your goals, review your resume, learn about summer internships, and get on track!”

Go to the CRC!  Get a feel for the office and what is available to you.  It is never too early to explore and discover.
