After thousands of responses to an online survey, I am pleased to announce, the overwhelming choice for our new online community is WesConnect. The pieces of our new online community are coming together quickly and deciding on a name is only the first task for the alumni. While Wesleyan will provide the tools, what WesConnect becomes is up to us.
I was encouraged by the huge response and the clear choice (more than double the votes of the runner-up) as well as entertained by the many suggestions. Some were clever, others nostalgic and some so profound and diverse, that decorum prohibits listing them here.
We are beginning our testing phase and will be unveiling WesConnect later this spring.
