Families are already trickling onto campus for Family Weekend, Sept. 26. Wesleyan families are invited to attend classes and WESeminars, take in concerts and sporting events, enjoy meals, tour campus and learn about student programs and services.

Breaking from tradition, this year Family Weekend is be separate from Homecoming Weekend, because Homecoming occurs during Fall break.

When sophomore Arch Doty moved into room 23 of Clark Hall in September, 1939, he brought with him a radio transmitter he had built at home the previous summer. Using a turntable, 78 rpm records, a microphone, the transmitter, and an antenna wire hanging out of Arch’s window, student-run radio at Wesleyan hit the airwaves.

It was a modest start. The entire audience that tuned into the evening AM-band broadcasts was limited to Clark residents—the weak signal reached no farther than several hundred feet beyond the antenna. But the broadcasts proved to be very popular, and within weeks, students in other residences wanted to be able to tune in.

Seventy-five years later, WESU-FM reaches a potential audience of over one million listeners, and can be heard beyond Springfield, Massachusetts; Long Island, New York; Waterbury; and Norwich.

“WESU: Celebrating 75 Years of Community Radio” takes an anecdotal look at one of the oldest college radio stations in the United States using photographs, documents, photographs, clippings, and artifacts. Throughout WESU’s history, there have been two constants: first, without interruption, Wesleyan students have operated the station; and second, broadcasts have been focused on new, under-represented, or non-commercial programming aimed at students and the larger community.

Most of the items in the exhibition are from the collections of Special Collections & Archives, Olin Library. University Archivist Leith Johnson is curator of the show, with research assistance provided by Ian McCarthy. Special thanks to WESU General Manager Ben Michael for advice and loans of items from WESU’s collection.

The show is on view in the exhibition area near Special Collections & Archives, 1st floor Olin Library, Wesleyan University.

Hey 2017’ers,

 

Here is information concerning grading mode changes for a course with a grading mode option: 

 

thumbnailCAGFPHI0In courses in which students have a choice of grading mode, the final choice must be made by Friday, September 26 at 5:00 p.m.

 

If you wish to change the grading mode of a course in which you are currently enrolled, you must do this by completing the grading mode change form and submitting it to the Registrar’s Office no later than fourteen days after the drop/add period ends—September 26 at 5 p.m.  

 

Whether a course has a grading mode option is listed in the course’s description in Wesmaps.  If it does not say “Student option” under Grading Mode, then it only has one grading mode and there is no option.   

 

Best, Dean Brown
