Founded in 1959, the CSS is reading and writing intensive, encouraging intellectual independence with weekly essays, small group tutorials, and a vibrant intellectual environment.
Professors and current students will be available to discuss the major and answer questions. The event will be held from 12 to 1 PM in the CSS Lounge (on the 4th floor of PAC). Pizza will be served.
The application will be available here on February 5th, and is due by Monday, February 9th.

From Savannah Whiting ’13/GRAD:
Never written a paper for college? Feel like you’ve never written a paper for college? Apply now for a Writing Mentor, a personal tutor who will meet with you privately to help you with your writing. Mentors can help you at all stages of the writing process—generating ideas, structuring your essay, improving grammar, clarity, and style, or simply managing your time—and will meet with you weekly to address all of your writing worries and woes. If you participate, a specially trained sophomore, junior, or senior will meet with you throughout the semester.
We work with students of all writing abilities and in all disciplines, and all services are, of course, free.
Applications are available here.
Please apply by noon on Thursday, February 5th. We will notify new mentees by the 9th, and hold a reception for new mentor-mentee couples on Tuesday, February 10th, from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in Allbritton311.
We look forward to working with you!
Deadline: Thursday, February 5th

Do you like riding horses? Have you ever wanted to dress up like a 19th century Englishman? Were you secretly or not so secretly obsessed with Mr. Ed as a kid? Do you like cuddling big animals? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should join the Wesleyan Equestrian Team! We are a club team and ride once a week in experience-appropriate lessons. All levels are welcome, and competing is fun but optional.
