So you’re a first year in the Spring of 2021. By this point in the year you’re pretty sure you’ve got the hang of Wesleyan’s campus culture; You’ve run into your fair share of “WestCo boys”, your mom has told you that she thinks your sense of style has changed for the worse, and you know where Fountain is (though you’ve yet to be asked in a packed and sweaty Pine Palace , “WHO DO YOU KNOW HERE?!?”)
But then that upperclassman you follow started plastering their Wes email all over their social media. And at first you thought, “No one cares.” But then came the masses. And you’ll admit, you’re a little curious.
Well, sweet first year, be a little curious no more! Let me tell you allll the ins and outs of Wescam, one of Wesleyan’s best traditions, four weeks after it went live. lol.
