Weekly Roundup – 3/8/22

Some upcoming dates and/or events that may be of interest to you:

  • Spring Break (3/12 – 3/20): Spring Break starts this weekend. Some students use the break to rest, relax, and catch up on hobbies or meet with family/friends. Others study for future exams or get started on upcoming projects/papers due later in the semester. There is no right or wrong way to approach Spring Break, but I do hope you find time to relax and decompress before the final push of the spring semester. If you are on campus during spring break, please make note of office and dining hall operating hours.
  • Spring Break Shuttles (ticket purchases due 3/9): Our Transportation Services office offers shuttles to Bradley Airport, New Haven and Hartford with tickets available through the Box Office. The deadline for purchase for shuttles over Spring Break is Wednesday, 3/9.
  • Human Rights Minor: Wesleyan will now offer a minor in Human Rights Advocacy. For more information, click here or attend one of two information sessions being offered: 
    • Thursday 3/10 at 12:00pm in Allbritton 311
    • Monday 3/21 at 12:00pm in Allbritton 311

I look forward to seeing you over the next couple of weeks – if we haven’t met yet, I encourage you to schedule an appointment to chat. I’m always interested in hearing more about your academic and career goals.

Welcome Back, 2025

I hope you are excited to resume classes this week!

As a reminder, courses will be held virtually on Thursday 1/27 and Friday 1/28. In person classes will resume Monday 1/31.

A few items to consider as you return:

  1. Covid Protocols: Very clear covid protocols have been shared with the community through webinars and emails. If you have questions about the latest COVID protocols, including what you need to do to return to campus and what you need to do when you are back on campus, please visit the Keep Wes Safe website here.
  2. Campus Dining: Campus Dining issued a student email last week with information on dining hours from now through the spring semester. Please visit the Campus Dining website to learn more.
  3. Olin Library – the Olin Library will be closed on Friday 1/28 for maintenance. If you have physical reserves you need to access for Friday classes, be sure to visit the library before they close on Thursday, 1/27. Olin staff will assist the Wes community remotely on Friday 1/28. Visit the Olin website for contact information.
  4. College of Social Studies (CSS): CSS will hold a major info session on Tuesday 2/1 from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. If you are interested in the CSS major, please be sure to attend the info session. You can find more info about this info session on my blog here.

I look forward to working with you this semester. If you need assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out and make an appt here: calendly.com/deankellydunn.
