Wesleying Unofficial Orientation Series 2012

If you can't tell from the glaring orange in this picture that this is not the Wesleyan you'll be attending in just a few days, please go home.

Dear prefrosh,

Word on the street is that you’re excited.  Your AP scores just can’t show up on ePortfolio fast enough, you’re over 2,000 comments deep in a word-association game, and you’ve already bought that handy-dandy MacBook Pro.  We get it.  But do you know what you need to like on Facebook? What student groups you want to join?  How to run away from Wesleyan in case it’s too scary?  No? Don’t worry, ‘cuz Wesleying’s got your back.

Welcome to the Wesleying Unofficial Orientation Series 2012, a collection of unbiased, purely factual, informative posts by a bunch of kids who sometimes claim to represent “real students, real student life at Wesleyan University.”  We know that you’ll be too busy developing your frosh-pack and hipstagramming photos of your first Psi U party to learn anything between August 26th/29th and September 2nd, so we’ve got the following topics covered:

Apply to be an NSO Peer Advisor!

The Student Academic Resource Center (SARN) is looking for talented and motivated students to become Peer Advisors for New Student Orientation (NSO), 2012!

NSO Peer Advisors are juniors, seniors and exceptional sophomores, who work throughout orientation to support Wesleyan’s faculty advising program, and enhance student access to academic resources through SARN. Basically, you’re helping very confused new students navigate through their first week of Wesleyan life!

Please urge any students who you think may be good candidates to apply, or apply yourself! A job description and application are found on-line here.

Applications, which require a faculty reference form, are due Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. Questions should be directed to the Associate Dean for Student Academic Resources, Sarah E. Lazare (x2332, slazare_at_wes).
