Senior Class Socratic Exchange

I think David Shor ’13 and Rachel Unger ’14 are referencing that guy from Bill and Ted here:

As graduation approaches, we anticipate the years of our lives that will follow these last four.  Who better to tell us what comes next than those who have already had 50 years of experience post-Wesleyan?  Lucky for us, the Class of 2013 has the unprecedented opportunity to engage with the Class of 1963 in an intimate, Socratic setting so that we may better understand what lies ahead.  We will have the chance to discuss how our Wesleyan experiences influence our hopes for life after college, and they also want our class to ask how they will spend their coming years.  Then, the tables will turn, and they will challenge us.

At Wesleyan and across the nation, much has changed in the last 50 years. So with open mind, the Class of 1963 invites us to join them in a Socratic dialogue to discuss our ideas about the future following this year’s Commencement and their 50th Reunion.

The event will take place Friday, May 24 from 11:00pm am- 12:30pm at Eclectic House.  Please fill out this form if you are interested in participating in this unique experience.  There are many more of us than them, and pairings with alumni will operate on a first come, first serve basis, so please let us know ASAP but definitely by Monday, April 15 if you would like to be a part of the special event!  Please contact David Shor (dshor@wes) or Rachel Unger (runger@wes) if you have any questions!
