WHY I CHOSE WES: 
I applied here through ED mainly because of the accepting nature of the student body and the strong academic program. Wesleyan has the biggest international student community and is the most diverse campus among many liberal arts colleges. Everybody is very nice to each other, and anyone with different backgrounds can find their places on campus. 
ACADEMIC
INTERESTS: 
I have been interested in economics since high school, and therefore decided to further study it here. At Wesleyan, I found myself particularly interested in political science; we call it government here. In China, it is very hard to get access to information about politics, but I can easily get it by taking the government classes here. Therefore, I am very glad that Wesleyan gives me the chance to know more about this world from a different perspective.
FAVORITE CLASS:

Comparative Politics of Modern Europe. This is an amazing course; I learned so much about European politics from taking this course. Professor Williarty is very enthusiastic about the material and good at making it interesting.

ACTIVITIES:

Psi Upsilon Fraternity
Intramural Basketball

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:
