As we begin the last semester of our senior year, we are yet again amazed at how quickly our time at Wes is coming to an end.  Without a doubt, the last three and one-half years have been remarkable and we know this semester will be too!

If you would you like to share your Wesleyan experience at graduation as the 2013 Senior Commencement Speaker, simply submit a 200-250 word essay answering the following question:

What has your Wesleyan experience meant to you?

The essay should be roughly equivalent to the speech you wish to deliver at graduation. Completed essays should be emailed to Dean Brown ( by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, February 15.

All essays will be reviewed anonymously by the Senior Commencement Speaker Committee.  The committee will select several applicants from the essay submission pool as finalists for interviews, which will be conducted between Wednesday, February 27 through Friday, March 1.  The speaker will be announced before spring break.

Speaking at Commencement is a unique responsibility that should be taken seriously.  If you are interested in becoming the Senior Speaker for Commencement, please do not hesitate to submit an essay!

Good luck and all the best!
