Your time at Wesleyan is about to begin—tomorrow marks the start of the bizarre period known as New Student Orientation. You may already be in lovely probably humid and bug-ridden Connecticut, awkwardly sharing a motel room in Cromwell with your dad. As you drive around buying last minute supplies and fighting about directions, you might be worrying about making friends, but never fear! Here at Wesleying we’re always worried about making friends and we have some tips to help. (Thanks to daniphantom for the previous incarnation of this list.)
