WHY I CHOSE WES: 

My decision was largely based on my tour of Wesleyan. Visiting campus for the first time, I immediately noticed the diversity of Wesleyan’s architecture –– never quite matching, always unique and interesting. I soon found that Wesleyan’s student body could be described in the exact same way –– a group of students, fiercely independent, but all sharing a common foundation. This is what I love most about Wes.

ACADEMIC
INTERESTS:

My first semester at Wesleyan, I decided to enroll in a government course and a history course despite the fact that I had focused on English throughout high school. I found the courses to be incredibly engaging and they pushed me to read, synthesize, and write in a more analytical and focused way.  This led me to apply to the College of Social Studies, where reading and writing intensive courses have allowed me to continue to hone these skills.  In addition, when I looked at the material taught in the College of Social Studies, I thought to myself, “This is exactly the information I want to know when I graduate from Wesleyan.” Always a good sign!

FAVORITE CLASS:

My favorite class at Wesleyan so far has been Jewish History: From “Biblical Israel” to Diaspora Jews taught by Professor Magda Teter.  This course marked a huge turning point in my education, when I realized that history was my niche and writing papers was totally my thing -- as nerdy as it sounds!

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:

I feel incredibly lucky that I found my perfect school. Wesleyan has exceeded all of my expectations. I wanted to be a tour guide in order to help other students find their perfect match. Being comfortable and happy in your environment affects all aspects of your college experience--socially, academically, etc!
