Winter at Wesleyan

This week, President Roth announced a full slate of programming for students during Winter Break. For the first time, Wesleyan will offer January classes, Fullbridge Internship Edge, and a variety of intensive Career Center programs. Here at PCSE, CCP, and OCS, we urge students to read about Winter at Wesleyan and consider how these programs might benefit you personally or professionally. If you’re not sure, chat with Jelisa, a PCSE Advisor, your academic advisor, or the Career Center staff.

Here’s President Roth’s announcement in case you missed it:

Dear friends,

Starting this January, we are introducing Winter at Wesleyan – academic offerings and Career Center programs designed to provide students with immersion-style classes and a variety of opportunities to help with life after Wesleyan.

The faculty has approved – for this January – four Winter Session courses, which will run for two weeks beginning January 8. These intensive courses are offered for full credit at a cost of $2,900 per course, and students may live in residence halls at no additional cost. An optional meal plan is available. These classes will be small, allowing for close interaction with faculty, and registration is now open. Limited financial aid will be available to students receiving aid during the academic year.

Winter on Wyllys includes a variety of career-related initiatives. For the first time, Wesleyan will host the Fullbridge Program, which provides intensive training in business fundamentals. In addition, Career Center staff will be presenting two concurrent, week-long intensive programs: CareerLab for those preparing to enter the job market, and Choosing Good Work for those students trying to make sense of their options and personal goals. The Career Center also will offer their WEShadow externship program, as well as an alumni guest speakers series. For more information, please contact the Career Center.

I’m pleased to see the beginning of 2014 bringing to Wesleyan students new options and opportunities. 

Michael S. Roth
