2015: Triple the Fun

“The station wagons arrived at noon, a long shining line that coursed through the west campus. . . .” —DeLillo, White Noise

Hear that rumbling?

It’s the week of Bed, Bath & Beyond splurges and roommate “fridge 4 microwave” backroom dealings. In less than a week, the station wagons descend on Andrus and over 800 wide-eyed freshpersons swarm the vegan section. Next Wednesday, the biggest freshman class in Wesleyan history (817, at last count) arrives on campus. (International Student Orientation, if you’re keeping track, starts three days earlier, on the 28th.)
