Please read the following information from the Office of Residential Life:

Thanksgiving Break
As you prepare for the Thanksgiving Holiday, remember to LOCK ALL DOORS AND WINDOWS whether you will be remaining on campus or leaving for the break.  Also, please consider taking home your bikes and other belongings that you will not need through the winter.

If you are staying on campus over the break period, please remember to walk in well lit areas after dark, preferably in groups, and report suspicious people to Public Safety immediately at 860-685-3333 or x-3333 from a campus phone line.  Although the RIDE program will not be operating Thursday through Saturday, Public Safety will provide escorts for individuals upon request.  Public Safety’s general phone number is 860-685-2345.

Preparing for Winter Break
As you finalize your travel arrangements for the winter break, remember residential units will close for the fall semester at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Sunday, December 18, 2011.  All residential units, with the exception of the wood frame houses, will close at this time.  Students can return to campus at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 24, 2012.

Seniors who live in wood frame houses can stay in their houses during winter break.  Students who want to stay in their wood frame house over break need to register with Residential Life by Saturday, December 17, 2011 so that the University knows when houses are completely vacant (movement will indicate a burglary and approached as such) and when occupied (in the event of necessary repairs being done).  The registration form is available on the Residential Life website at: http://www.wesleyan.edu/reslife/Forms/wood_frame_winter_break_form.html.

There will be a limited number of employment opportunities for students looking for work on campus during winter break.  Students wishing to do so must request housing with Residential Life by, Thursday, December 1, 2011.   Requests should be made through the Winter Break web site at: http://www.wesleyan.edu/reslife/ugrad_housing/winter_closing.html.

Please note:  Housing is not guaranteed during the winter break period, students who are granted permission to live in their units during the break will be notified via email on December 9, 2011.

The staff from Health Services, Counseling and Psychological Services and WesWell invite you to apply to become a member of the newly revitalized Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC). We are looking for approximately 10-12 students from all class years who have an interest in health-related efforts. The committee is instrumental in providing Davison Health Center staff (including Health Services, Counseling and Psychological Services and WesWell) with information on how to better serve the health needs of students.

To see SHAC mission, goals and application form, please check out the link at www.wesleyan.edu/healthservices/links/SHAC.html

Deadline to apply is September 26.

For more information, contact Joyce Walter, Director of the Davison Health Center, at jwalter@wesleyan.edu.

Free Lunch!

Dear Students,

In order to promote informal faculty-student interaction outside the classroom, I am pleased to announce the Daniel Family Commons Free Lunch Program.  We have provided each faculty member with vouchers that enable them to take small groups of students to lunch at the Daniel Family Commons in the Usdan Center.  My office is making these same vouchers available directly to you!  Each voucher covers the cost of lunch for a faculty member and up to three students, and vouchers will be good for the remainder of the current academic year.

Please consider inviting your favorite faculty member to lunch, and stop by my office (220 North College) to pick up a voucher.

Bon appétit!

Dean Mike Whaley
