Question from COCO: How Can We Strengthen our Community?

COCo Wants Suggestions!

A note from the great Syed Ali ’13:

COCO, officially the Community Outreach Committee of the WSA, wants your help.  As a member of the Wesleyan community, you’ve inevitably spent some time thinking about it.  What does membership in the Wesleyan community mean?  How can can our cohesiveness as a community be strengthened?

We spend a lot of time thinking about such questions on COCO.  These are the questions that we fall asleep wondering about, the questions we’re poking at when we trail off mid-sentence, the questions that keep us from hanging out with you all of the time.  The six people on the core COCO committee, can’t do it alone.  Neither can the two dozen total involved on COCO subcommittees.

We cover student groups, diversity and inclusion, spirit and events, and relations with Middletown.  We want to know what you think.

All the best,
Syed Ali ’13

If you have already graduated or are no longer the leader of your student group, please forward this email to the current student group leader.
