How do you pronounce "Holly Wood"?

Check out this A+ guilt trip. My mother doesn’t even do it this well.

Senior!

Why won’t you call in your name pronunciation? For us it seems a simple request. Now Wesleyan dollars that could be used for scholarships, paying workers, providing community resources, etc. need to be used to track you down and get you to call in. NEVER have so many seniors refused to let the name readers know how to pronounce their names. I am bewildered. Please call in your name. Call 685-2005.

Edit: My housemate just reminded me about how they accidentally DELETED ALL THE MESSAGES from the first round of people who called in…

    Two years later, I just wanted to say that I CALLED IN MY NAME TWICE and they still pronounced it wrong at graduation. Shoo-ee Soon, whoever you are, congratulations for graduating from Wesleyan. Love, Xue Sun.

    For the record, you don’t actually need a land line. They just don’t want you calling from the middle of a party or when you have half a bar of reception. I used a cell phone and I have yet to be struck down by lightening.

    That e-mail pissed me off– seriously, they aren’t ACTUALLY spending scholarship money on calling us. I hate it when people in positions of power lie to get you to do something. We’re all college students, we know how long it takes to compile an e-mail list and send an e-mail– don’t pretend it’s a University financial emergency.

    I think our marshall just threatened that everyone would laugh at our names or something. No point in even trying to guilt us, we had stopped caring by then.Highlight of my graduation was when they forgot one girl’s diploma. So they called her name and didn’t have her diploma and the dean just goes, “well, that’s never happened.”Congrats to all yousenior Wesleyings
