The Eco Facilitators are Hiring

The Sustainability Office is looking for a group of 9-16 students (preference for freshmen and sophomores) with a range of environmental and non-environmental interests and backgrounds to join the 2021-22 Eco Facilitator program! EFs work to provide students with the tools, education, and encouragement necessary to develop sustainable living practices, as well to encourage a sense of environmental consciousness and social responsibility on campus, regardless of prior sustainability knowledge.

In Spring 2021, hired EFs will enroll in a semester-long student forum focused on learning about sustainability at Wesleyan, connecting environmental issues on campus to broader social injustices, and developing effective strategies to encourage sustainable practices. Throughout the 2021-22 school year, EFs will be paid to take out compost in their assigned dorm and conduct sustainability-related projects across campus. Working as an Eco Facilitator is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills and take part in building a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive campus community.

Info sessions will be held over Zoom:

Tuesday, October 20th, 4:30 pm ( and
Thursday, October 29th, 2:30 pm (

Applications are due by Friday, October 30th at 11:59 PM.

College of Letters Open House 10/20

Tuesday, October 20th, 4:30 to 5:30
Boger Hall 114/115

Join us for our Open House, in person or on Zoom, to meet COL students and professors, ask questions, and learn more about the major and what it enables you to do.

The College of Letters is Wesleyan’s interdisciplinary Humanities major. The College’s mission is to cultivate the educated imagination through a balance of collective and individual study, based in historical, philosophical, and literary approaches to the production, transmission, translation, interpretation, and critique of the European intellectual and literary tradition. Each class of students forms a community of learners that enrolls in a series of five colloquia. COL majors study a foreign language, go abroad in the spring semester of their junior year, and pursue a senior capstone project. To encourage fearless intellectual and creative exploration, students receive written evaluations but no letter grades.

The College of Letters is a three-year major. The major declaration process for the class of 2024 begins in February 2021. No minimum GPA is required to enroll in the major and there are no prerequisites for declaring the major except for your personal commitment to learning a language other than English, on campus and abroad.
