BIO
I first discovered my love for community and speaking when I was accepted into my high school’s Community School, an alternative, conversation-based learning program. I continued to enhance my life with these two passions by coming to Wesleyan where I am part of many tight-knit communities and am encouraged to speak my mind. I decided to be an anthropology major when I realized that I could use my voice and study communities to help others, ultimately igniting the two aspects of life that I love most. Outside of the classroom, I get things done in the Office of Admission and Rho Epsilon Pi, Wesleyan’s only sorority. I also continue my involvement in theater through Wesleyan’s student-run theater organization.

WHY WES
When I was first looking at colleges, Wesleyan was totally not on my radar. Probably like you, I was looking for a small, liberal arts college, preferably in the northeast. Maybe like you, my family forced me onto multiple college road trips where I visited so many schools that they all seemed to blur together. Wes was different for me because of the people. When I visited, I saw a place where I could fit in and people with whom I could be friends.
