Carey Gilchrist ’13 writes in:

After President Roth’s announcement about budget allocations, there has been a lot of talk about which aspects of our school should/can be cut and which aspects are essential to maintain the integrity of the ”Wesleyan Experience.” This will be a neutral space to deeply explore difficult and personal questions about what the “Wesleyan Experience” means to us.

Everyone is welcome and snacks will be provided!
