HIGH SCHOOL: Choate Rosemary Hall, Wallingford, CT 


My name is Jesalyn Ortiz and I am a sophomore at Wesleyan. I am a prospective Government major and am pursuing a certificate in Social, Cultural & Critical Theory. In addition to working as an Admissions Intern, I also work for the Red & Black Society here at Wes. Through that, I have the opportunity to connect with alumni and speak with them about Wesleyan; it's a really cool way to get to know the school from a different perspective. Although I dedicate a lot of time to my classes and jobs that I work on campus, I think it is important to reserve time for fun - hanging out with friends, getting involved with student groups, exploring Middletown. I come from a big family at home, so I like to surround myself with lots of different people. 

WHY WES: A big part of the reason I decided to come to Wesleyan was that I was unsure of what I wanted to study and major in. Because Wes doesn't have a core curriculum, it allowed me the freedom to take classes in different disciplines and really explore what I like and don't like. I have found an interest in government and political theory that I might not have if it weren't for the flexibility of academics at Wesleyan.              

This is a tough one - I've been on a Beyonce kick lately. My favorite song off her new album is "Mine."

I have been attending school away from home since I was 13 years old.
