Unofficial Orientation 2020: Welcome!

Hello and welcome to Unofficial Orientation 2020! To the class of 2024, we know that coronavirus isn’t exactly bringing the ~energy~ that you were expecting from your freshman year. But fear not! Wesleying will be providing our usual quality, emphatic, and Wesleyan-related content despite all of the world’s apocalyptic chaos. However, just like every other aspect of the upcoming school year, the structure of our Unofficial Orientation series is going to look a little different. 

In addition to individually posting each Unofficial Orientation article on everything you need to know about being a Frosh, we are going to put the links to these articles together on this post so that you can find all the important 2020 info in one place. This year has been tough enough already, and we don’t want to make things any harder than they need to be. Some of these articles will be the same as last year, but many of them will be updated according to covid-19 guidelines and how Wesleyan is dealing with the pandemic as a whole. It will be pretty obvious which posts have that special coronavirus flare. 

We are also writing brand new articles that pertain to Wesleyan student life that we think are important for all four years of your Wesleyan experience. These are hopefully on topics that are useful with or without global pandemics.

Even though we are facing a lot of changes in 2020, we are still so excited to introduce you to our community and can’t wait to see you virtually or on campus soon!
