    Jose Pagan '22

    Hello new friends, welcome to Wesleyan! My name is José, he/him pronouns, and I am a rising senior here at Wes (That's trippy to say!). I'm from Philadelphia, PA, and I'm an American Studies major. On campus I love creating events, enjoying beautiful scenery, and sitting at the windows of Olin Library. You can find me working in the Resource Center, at any of the SPECTRUM events (Wesleyan's QTPOC Organization), or at weswings. I am beyond excited to go on this journey of self-discovery, friendship building, and community bonding that we will all embark on this orientation! In the midst of the pandemic, we are all craving interaction, fresh faces, compassion, and we are beyond hopeful that this year's orientation will fulfill all the things we're yearning for. I look forward to seeing you all soon! If you see me, feel free to give me a "Hey!"
