Want to share your personal story before you leave Wesleyan?

How are you different from that awkward confused first year student that showed up here four years ago?

What moments and challenges have been especially important to you? Why?

What do you see yourself doing in the near future?

Do you remember “In the Company of Others” during your Orientation?

Well, Senior Voices aka Baccalaureate is the senior version of this kind of event. It is an opportunity for Seniors to share their experiences before ending their Wesleyan career and beginning a new chapter of their life. It is a time to reflect, share and recap some of their unique and transformative moments from their years at Wes.

We want to hear your story, so sign up!

We need:
