What Should Wesleyan’s Academic Priorities Be?

The WSA wants to know what you think the academic priorities of the University should be during this time of serious budget cuts. Some things may have to go and we want to ensure that the University preserves those things that are most important to students.

    Definitely agree with 11:01 (and 10:04 actually).
    Library funding (one of the options listed on the link) is something that could be cut, I think. We should prioritize the classroom experience (small class sizes) and keeping faculty happy, IMO.
    Also, I know Wes is really into its sciences lately, but let’s keep the more liberal-artsy departments (like philosophy) well-funded too, please. That’s why I came here.

    Class sizes should not be sacrificed. Classes here already boarder on large–any larger and a large reason to come to a small college like this would be nullified.

    Don’t cut the philosophy department! It’s (partly) why I chose to come here and it’s fairly awesome for such a small school.
