The Green Fund is a newly established, student-financed, student-managed fund for campus sustainability projects. It is independent of our university’s financial vulnerabilities and will finance initiatives that decrease the carbon footprint of the University, decrease waste, increase the University’s use of energy from renewable resources, and increase visibility of environmentally responsible practices on campus. The fund is supported by a 15 dollar per semester fee that students may opt-out of.

The Green Fund is now accepting proposals for innovative, well-developed proposals that can move the university forward in sustainability and environmental stewardship.

For more information/ ideas/ to submit an application, visit: https://sites.google.com/a/wesleyan.edu/green-fund/

Applications will be approved on a rolling basis. Deadline is December 3rd!

Have you thought about sharing your love for Wesleyan with prospective students?

Did you have a great Wesleyan tour guide?

Do you see tours around campus and wish that you were the one leading them?

The Office of Admission is hiring tour guides for the Spring 2011! Admission Tour Guides represent Wesleyan to prospective students and their families as they decide where they will apply and where to attend college. Do you remember your Wesleyan tour guide? Often, a tour guide is the first, and sometimes only, student these families will meet and are critical in forming their impressions of campus and Wesleyan students.

Applications are due on Monday, November 15 by 5pm, but you can definitely submit them earlier (and it would be appreciated!). If you are interested in applying, please go here: https://sites.google.com/site/cardinalkey/application. The application can be downloaded (at the bottom of the page) and completed. Once you complete the application, you can return a hard copy to the Office of Admission front desk, or e-mail it to Associate Dean of Admission Tara Lindros at tlindros@wesleyan.edu.

The position begins at the start of the spring semester 2011and we conduct training just prior to the start of classes. You would need to be available to give approximately 1-2 tours a week (more can be made available if you’d like), and attend meetings (1-2 times per month) as scheduled. Work study and non-work study students are welcome to apply, although work study students will be given preference.  Also, we want tour guides to reflect Wesleyan students and the diversity of backgrounds, thoughts, and interests, and encourage all students to consider applying.  Strong preference will be given to members of the classes of 2013 and 2014.

If you have any questions, please contact Tara at tlindros@wesleyan.edu.  We look forward to reading your applications!
