Facebook Strikes ’12!

Devon Hopkins ’11 creator of the Wesleyan Class of 2011 facebook group writes in to tell us that the rising frosh are already getting in on some awkward cyber interactions before, you know, real life. You can gawk at it here. Devon also writes that there was a good article apparently on this site concerning how to get your e-mail login. I can’t find it, but if I remember correctly it’s generally (first initial)(last name)@wes pass:wesid(initials). It’s been a few years though, let me know if I’m wrong.

Edit:

password is (first+last initial) + (wesid), I think

yes, but some people have common names and their middle initial is added after the first letter of their last name. if that doesn’t work try your first two letters of yur name, but who knows.

And there you have it.

Edit by Isaac:

From Sam’s comment, which is correct as far as I know:

Your password, if it’s the same as it was last year, is the first two letters of your e-mail address, and then your WesID.

Your e-mail address is usually your first initial + last name, however, it may include a middle initial, you may get a number at the end if there are lots of people with what would be the same e-mail, and your e-mail address (the part before the ‘@’) will not be longer than 12 letters. (And hyphens, etc., are not included in your address)

    To change your passwords, click on ‘password manager’ in your e-portfolio and follow the directions. Change it ASAP–you’ll have to later if you don’t know, and it’s easier to change it now so you won’t have incorrect saved passwords everywhere.
