Wesleying Unofficial Orientation Series 2013

AMARTIN'17

Dear preFrosh,

You’ve got some questions: “Can I join clubs and groups before arriving on campus? [I’m interested in Forensics (public speaking/debate), Acting, Creative Writing, Soccer (hoping to play club), & Martial Arts].” “Anyone else never register for that community engagement trip and feeling like the most horrible person and wondering if they are kicked out of wes?” “What is a grundle?” “How big is the closet space in Clark?” “Does beer taste like pee?”

You’ve already painted your boats maroon and black and are planning to form the next Speedy Ortiz during your first week here.

Well, don’t fret! We’ve harnessed all your confusion and excitement into the Wesleying Unofficial Orientation Series 2013: a two-week long series of informative posts by bloggers in their underwear who sometimes claim to represent “real students, real student life at Wesleyan University.” We know that you’ll be too busy getting used to the term ‘cisgendered,’ man, and hipstagramming photos of your first Psi U party to learn anything between August 29th and September 2nd, so we’ve got the following topics covered (in no particular order of importance):

For the next two weeks, we’ll strive to post a new installment once every day or two, so check back around noon each day. Some of these posts are newly hatched and others are updates to previous Unofficial Orientation Series editions that are updates to even earlier Unofficial Orientation Series incarnations. To keep track of these posts as they’re published, you can view the Wesleying Unofficial Orientation Series 2013 tag or just check back to this post (which will be updated) for links.

Questions about Wes? Post them as comments! You’ll probably get as helpful a response as on the WesAdmits 2017 group. Get excited (or ironically smirk. wack.)!! You’ll be at Wesleyan really soon.
