Do you have appliances that are unused? Do you wish there was a way to donate those items? DONATE HERE
The Resource Center, in collaboration with WasteNot, have organized a donation spreadsheet for Wesleyan students to donate appliances to fellow peers who may not be able to afford appliances (e.g. fridges and microwaves) to live comfortably.
Due to limitations of items donated to WasteNot, ONLY freshmen will be able to have access to the spreadsheet on Friday, Sept 11th.
The spreadsheet will be on a first come- first served basis starting Saturday, Sept 12
This spreadsheet acts as a medium, meaning that the students are responsible for contacting the individual donor for the item(s) pickup.
- Students/Staff are allowed to donate more than one item, however please make a new entry for each item
- When the donated item has been picked up, please change the color of the entry to red or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
- The donated item must abide by the university’s fire hazard guidelines, which can be found here.
Please note, if the item is large, consider borrowing a trolley from WesStation

Dear Members of the Wesleyan Community:
I would like to share some important information concerning the student employment program at Wesleyan.
All student employees should speak with their supervisors to determine whether remote work is possible for the positions they held prior to the transition to a remote campus. Students who can continue to work remotely should do so and, in accordance with the University’s student weekly payroll schedule, submit their hours for approval on a weekly basis.
Students who had been working to fulfill their semester’s work-study expectation, but are unable to continue to work remotely for the remainder of the semester will receive the income they were receiving prior to the move to remote learning, up to their maximum work-study allocation for the semester. Their payment will be based upon an average of the total amount of pay they already received for the spring semester (i.e., earnings received from December 16 through March 22), divided by the number of paychecks the student received, up to the student’s work-study allocation.
Supervisors who have positions for remote work available are encouraged to post these positions on the Student Employment Office website: https://www.wesleyan.edu/finaid/employment/availablepositions/index.html.
Supervisors unfamiliar with posting positions through the Student Employment Office website are encouraged to visit the supervisor FAQs: https://www.wesleyan.edu/finaid/employment/employers/studentsupervisorfaq.html. These positions will be open to any student based upon the eligibility criteria set by the supervisor.
Additional details regarding Student Employment are available in the FAQ section for students on the COVID-19 website: https://www.wesleyan.edu/healthservices/coronavirus/faq/student.html. I encourage you to review the FAQ’s for important updates on this topic.
We know the disruptions of the COVID-19 outbreak have been significant. We hope that knowing that students who were working to fulfill their need-based work obligations will continue to have income for their campus jobs will be one less source of anxiety.
Should you have questions regarding remote student employment, please direct them to Covid-19Info@wesleyan.edu or call us at 1-888-675-2011 and we will respond as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
Please stay safe and let’s continue to take care of one another.
With appreciation and best wishes,
Amin Abdul-Malik Gonzalez ‘96

Wesleyan University grant aid is available to qualified Wesleyan University students. Wesleyan students should apply for aid using the application available in the Portal; applying for aid does not commit students to taking a course. Summer Session does not meet full-need for students; students should expect to use personal funds or student loans to meet the cost of Summer Session.
Campus administrators and staff recently received reports that Wesleyan students have been throwing away tax documents (e.g. W-2s) in the Usdan mailbox area. Remember, W-2s, 1099s, and other documents are required when filing taxes.
Good luck this tax-filing season!
