As if you didn’t have enough to distract you from your studies (what with the bizzare “is-it-or-isn’t-it-gonna-snow?” weather, the Wesleyan Refugee Project’s Advocacy Week, having an existential crisis over Usdan’s “hummus,” or just trying to make it through the last week before our blissfully/irritatingly long Spring Break), WesMaps 2018-2019 is live!
While some of the offerings appear to be a bit more sparse than in years past (there’s only 9 courses listed for Anthropology in the fall………yikes), there’s still plenty to peruse as you procrastinate working on your midterms! We expect y’all to spend your breaks avidly reading all the listings so you can send us your nominations for the “Best of WesMaps: Fall 2018 Edition” (email your faves to staff[at]wesleying[dot]edu)!
Some quick reminders because I’m about to be a senior and am feeling all ~nostalgic~ that I only have a year left and also have made or witnessed plenty of mistakes that hopefully some of you youngins can learn from:
- Be sure to check for POI deadlines so you don’t miss out on those famed 8:1 student-faculty ratio courses we all hear about but never actually get into because we can’t meet a deadline to save our own lives (oh wait, that’s just me???)
- Try to find at least one course outside your major/gen-ed division that sounds fun! It’s nice to shake things up, and you’ll probably meet some cool people you never would have met otherwise (shout out to Lacrosse Land in astronomy)
- Make a list of what sounds interesting now so that when prereg inevitably sneaks up on you when you have 7 papers and 3 exams (because doesn’t it always???) you have at least some idea what you want to do
- Check your major/minor/thesis requirements now; your advisor will not point out that you are off track for graduation until it’s senior spring and you need 5 credits to graduate. This is one of those things you should check and double check and ask questions about every semester. Also pester your advisor to meet about prereg early and often! Nothing sucks more than not having your prereg run through the system because you couldn’t get your advisor to meet with you to approve your schedule…………. (what I’m not bitter that’s absurd)
Happy WesMaps! Happy Midterms (lol)! Happy browsing!
