RE: Deadline to Change Grading Mode

Today, Friday, Sept. 29th is the final date to change the grading mode for courses that offer this option. The form (available at https://wesfiles.wesleyan.edu/departments/Reg/Forms/Public/PetitionForm.pdf) must be submitted to me by 4:30 pm so that we may make the 5:00 p.m. Registrar’s Office deadline. Please keep in mind that you can take a course CR/U and still count it toward your General Education expectations.

RE: Credit Analysis Report

Please review your Credit Analysis Report, available in your portfolio, which will help guide you toward completing degree requirements. Those requirements are:

(1) satisfaction of requirements for a major

(2) satisfactory completion of 32 course credits, no fewer than 16 of which must be earned at Wesleyan or in Wesleyan-sponsored programs

(3) a cumulative average of 74 percent or work of equivalent quality

(4) at least six semesters in residence at Wesleyan as full-time students for students entering in their first year (for students entering as sophomore transfers, at least five semesters in residence at Wesleyan as full-time students; for students who entered as midyear sophomores or junior transfers, at least four semesters in residence at Wesleyan as full-time students).

RE: Getting Help

This is the time of the semester when some students begin to recognize the need for additional assistance with course materials. Please consult your instructors (go to office hours and TA review sessions) and come to see me. My drop-in hours are posted outside of my office and Mrs. Maheu at tmaheu@wesleyan.edu will assist you with scheduling an individual appointment with me. You may signup for a peer tutor using this form: http://www.wesleyan.edu/studentaffairs/resources/peertutoring/Tutor_request_form.html

WHEN: Saturday, 1 October 2016

WHERE:  Boger Hall, Rm 112

TIME: 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

PRESENTED BY:David Van Vactor, PhD, Professor of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Director, Curriculum Fellows Program;  Jason Heustis, PhD, Lecturer, Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Harvard Medical School, Graduate Curriculum, Professional Development and Evaluation Specialist

 Members of the Harvard Medical School community will be visiting to connect with students interested in discussing graduate school applications, graduate training and professional development, and the expanding range of career options for PhDs.

For decades, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education has followed very traditional models of training and career preparation.  These models are now undergoing change to better prepare graduates for a rapidly evolving career landscape.

 We will examine this landscape and open a dialogue with the audience to explore how students can effectively navigate portfolio development, graduate school applications and training.

 Please come and join the conversation!

DANC 111 Section 02
Tu, Th 8:40-10:10AM

This is an introduction to dance as an educational, technical, and creative discipline for students with no previous formal dance training. Classes will introduce the basic components of dance technique–stretching, strengthening, aligning the body, and developing coordination in the execution of rhythmic movement patterns. Through improvisation, composition, and performing, students will develop a solid framework applicable to all forms of dance.


Please complete the following form by 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 30.The Transfer Connections Program helps facilitate the transition of incoming sophomore and junior transfer students to Wesleyan. Students who transferred to Wesleyan over the last two years have volunteered to be your connection, or contact point, this summer and over the coming academic year to answer your questions and help you get settled into campus life. Their perspectives and experiences can be very helpful (and fun) as you look forward to your arrival at Wes.

Questions can be directed to Renee N. Johnson-Thornton, Dean for the Class of 2018, at rjohnson01@wesleyan.edu, 860-685-2764.




The New Student Orientation program is now seeking performers for In the Company of Others 2016. This important peer theater piece is a central aspect of the New Student Orientation.

This year, we are particularly looking for applicants who can share experiences around issues of identity. If you are interested in being a performer for this program, please complete the following interest form.

Please submit this application using this link no later than Wednesday, May 11th by 5:00pm. If you have any questions, please contact Elisa Cardona in the Office of New Student Orientation.


Dear Students in the Class of 2018,

Now that Spring is “officially” here, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Pre-registration will begin next week (Monday, March 28th) and end on April 11 at 5 p.m.

  • Sophomores are advised to declare a major using the Electronic Portfolio prior to the start of the pre-registration period. Students who declare their majors by this date may be notified about their major advisor. Students who have submitted major deferral forms because they are still completing prerequisites or General Education Expectations courses, should inform their pre-major advisors about their continued need for support during the pre-registration period. If you have neither declared a major or submitted a major deferral form, please come to see me immediately during one of my drop-in sessions.
  • Note, the scheduling period will take place on April 12, after which you may adjust your schedule until April 19

  • For Spring 2016 course, note the deadline for course withdrawal is Wednesday, April 27
