Apply to Coach for Wesleyan Let’s Get Ready!

lgr

From two ladies who can tell you how to get that golden 2400 (maybe?), Chloe Rinehart ’14 and Lucy Britt ’14:

Did you love the SAT? Probably not. Do you love college? We’re guessing so. Want to help local high school students prepare for the SAT so that they can get into and love college too??

Apply to be a coach—a tutor, mentor, role-model—with Let’s Get Ready!, a non-profit organization that provides free SAT preparation and college admissions counseling to socioeconomically disadvantaged and otherwise under-served high school students.

The Wesleyan program of LGR partners with Platt High School in Meriden to work with high school juniors and seniors from Middletown, Platt, and Maloney High Schools on the SAT, college applications, and financial aid information.

As a coach, you will be committing to volunteer with us once a week for 3 hours, teaching a group of 4-5 students either the Math or Critical Reading and Writing sections of the SAT.

Come volunteer with LGR! Applications can be found at THIS LINK, and are tentatively due Sunday, September 15th!

Deadline: September 15th

Farm Forum Info Session

From Cat Walsh ’16:

Hey! Want to know the dirt on dirt? Come learn about soil, plants, and much, much more in this semester’s student forum on the farm, Theory and Practice of Small Scale Organic Agriculture.

The farm forum aims to be an experiment in experiential learning alongside more common academic methods such as critical reading and discussion. No experience necessary — if you can’t tell the difference between a tomato and a tomatillo, we’d love to have you.

Our first meeting will be Tuesday, September 3rd at 7 PM in the UOC (which is between Eclectic and Beta). We will schedule farm work periods and hand out enrollment forms and information.

Date: Tuesday, Sept 3
Time: 7-8:16 p.m.
Place: The UOC (Between Eclectic and Beta)
