Nicole Updegrove ’14 sends out a call to international students:
Wesleyan 2020 names having a “more international” student body as a major institutional priority for the decade. However, international students attending Wesleyan face regularly a number of challenges that domestic students don’t always encounter, like international travel, visa bureaucracies, tax difficulties, employment bureaucracies, lack of American driver’s licenses, and difficulty returning home for holidays, among many others. I have recently heard reports that services for international students aren’t always what they ought to be.
If you are an international student with stories to tell, please contact nupdegrove(at)wesleyan(dot)edu with input about your experience with international student orientation, various policies, the international student office, and ideas about how WSA’s Student Affairs Committee can improve your experience and that of incoming international student classes.
