Neuroscience & Behavior and History
In what appeared a sea of information in my college search, my campus tour was a pivotal moment for me to discern that Wesleyan was a fit, both in academic caliber and in the social setting. In the end, a myriad of reasons contributed to my decision to come to Wesleyan, perhaps most notably the sense of community that Wesleyan fosters as students transcend the relationship of simply another number in the classroom. Working for Red & Black, I am granted access to the greater Wesleyan community in the alumni network. I am grateful for the opportunity to understand what Wesleyan has meant for generations of students who came before me.
The faculty and staff at Wesleyan remain committed to designing courses and programs that aptly apply to each student’s individual interests, rather than confining students to the rigid boundaries of core curriculum that may not necessarily suit the student’s objectives. A natural segue of this freedom in curriculum manifests in Wesleyan’s receptiveness to the richness of student individuality—intellectually, socially, and culturally. In my nearly three years spent at Wesleyan, I have garnered a deep respect and gratitude for the opportunities that my time at Wesleyan has offered me.
My experiences at Wesleyan have led me to engage in environmental activism, found Wesleyan’s only sorority, serve as a member of the Wesleyan Student Assembly, compete on a women’s ultimate Frisbee team, and receive my EMT certification. I came to Wesleyan, eager for how my experience as an undergraduate would transform me and help me both to learn and to grow as an individual. As a senior, my time here has meant more to me than I ever thought possible. I love Wesleyan. I am grateful for the opportunity this job provides me to give back to Wesleyan, an institution that has given me so many resources during my time here.
