Interested in staying on campus to take classes this summer? While you can register for classes until June 1, you MUST register for at least two classes and submit your form to the Summer Session office by Wednesday, March 26 if you would like to apply for financial aid. More information on Summer Session, courtesy of their website:
Wesleyan University offers an intensive Summer Session in which students can complete semester-long courses in only five weeks; courses are offered in both June and July. Wesleyan Summer Session is open to students who feel they have the academic qualifications and stamina to complete an intellectually challenging course in a compressed schedule. Residential options are available for both Wesleyan undergraduates and non-Wesleyan students.
There will be two sessions with different classes: May 28 – June 26, and June 30 – July 30. For a full listing of courses, click here.
Today Wesleyan students received an email from President Roth and Vice President Rosenthal announcing the roll-out of a pilot project that will offer online courses (not for credit) to “high-achieving high school students.”
The first suite of online seminars will be offered this summer. The courses vary from environmental studies to music, two of Wesleyan’s self-proclaimed “areas of strength.” So if you have a little sibling who is jealous of your History of Rock and R&B class, can commit to eight weeks of summer school, and has $1,400 to spare, tell hir to check out the Wesleyan Pre-College Study webpage.
Read on for the full email from Rosenthal and Roth (Michael Rothenthal??).

If you don’t know why you should stay at Wes for any part of the summer, but suspect there might be a good reason – you should attend. If you can politely listen to other folks speaking enthusiastically about something for 45 minutes in your quest for the most delicious cupcake in the world, you, too, should attend. You can also visit Summer Session’s webpage for more information, but not for cupcakes. Registration opens February 14th.
Want to give yourself credit? Facebook just presented me with an opportunity to do so.
As the advertisement on the right shows, I can get credit by registering for the Wesleyan Summer Session, running from June 7 to July 9.
At this point, I’m just trying to get through this spring “session.” Time to crack those books for all that work that just didn’t happen over Spring Break.
Are there courses that you simply don’t have time for during the academic year but really want to take? Or maybe you have had difficulty getting in to them… Or you just want to spend more time learning at Wesleyan… Whatever your reason, the new Wesleyan Summer Session seems to be a great option to fill your needs.
The session runs from June 7 through July 9, 2010. The courses count for full Wesleyan credit and are available at a reasonable price: tuition is $2,500 per course credit; housing and dining is $2,135 (not mandatory); and the $500 registration deposit is credited toward tuition. The cost reflects a discount of nearly 50% of full tuition. Some financial aid will also be available.
Courses will be offered in a variety of disciplines, including economics, music, and psychology. There are also some new courses being taught, as well as many that are always in high demand. A cool option is enrollment in one of the thematic institutes: neuroscience and psychology; computer programming and computer music; and visualizing and creating theatrical performance.
Check out the Summer Session website for more information and a complete listing of courses. You can also email email@example.com or call the summer session office at (860) 685-2900.
