Deloitte Consulting Information Session

A post-graduation job opportunity from Alexa Atamanchuk ’12:

This Sunday Deloitte Consulting will be hosting an information session for Wesleyan students who are interested in joining Deloitte as a Business Analyst after graduation.

Business Analysts work with a Deloitte project team to deliver strategic solutions and implement new processes for clients across all industries. As such, strong candidates should be top academic performers (typically 3.5+GPA) with solid analytical, quantitative and, where applicable, technical skills. In addition, top candidates should posses strong “people skills” and demonstrate leadership potential and a strong work ethic. This is important since Analysts typically travel four days a week to work collaboratively with the client and a Deloitte project team. Essentially we are looking for sharp students across all academic disciplines who can work well in a team environment.

Tonight: “Urgent, All-Hands on Deck” Meeting for Need-Blind

Wesleyan’s Board of Trustees is on campus this weekend for the first time since May, when they first voted to scale back need-blind. Wesleying has received word of an urgent organization meeting happening in Usdan tonight—not to be confused with our upcoming forum with President Roth, which is set for Monday:

Dear friends,

The Board of Trustees is on campus this weekend, and their Executive Session is tomorrow (Sunday). While we recognize that need blind admissions is a complicated issue, we believe we have a vital obligation as students to demonstrate to the board of trustees and the administration thatNeed-Blind matters to students.

We are meeting tonight at 6:30 PM in the Usdan Multipurpose Room (basement, down the hall from the package center) to discuss how we can respectfully and constructively communicate to the Board that Need-Blind matters. This is an urgent, all-hands on deck meeting. Convincing the Board that a large number of students care about Need-Blind is our only hope for having a voice in decisions that affect us as students. We will have other opportunities to do this, but this is a big one.

Wesleying To Host Need-Blind Forum with President Roth

Can’t make the forum? Email us your questions for Roth: staff(at)wesleying(dot)org.

If the Wesleying coverage, Argus editorials, WSA moves, and general campus discourse come to anything, it’s this: the debate surrounding Wesleyan’s decision to scale back need-blind is among the fiercest in recent memory. Wesward, the online organizational hub, has even compiled a page of links for need-blind. I haven’t seen such an ongoing flurry of campus activism since the bygone days of Betagate. If our current weekly poll is any indication, I’m not sure I’ve seen such a divisive Wes controversy ever.

Since May, Wesleying has been (and will continue to be) instrumental in facilitating these discussions. But sometimes the best conversations take place off the Internet. (It’s kind of weird for us to wrap our heads around.) And sometimes it’s nice to get your point across to Michael Roth ’78 in a venue other than his blog’s comments (though those can be great, too) and reddit AMAs. When some fellow students, including A-Batte, and I met with the president during Senior Week last spring, he even offered to participate in a live forum.

So it comes to this. On Monday, in PAC 002, Wesleying will host its first ever forum: an open conversation with President Roth about Wesleyan’s need-blind policy shift and affordability plans.
