There are 7 spots available for members of the classes of 2014, 2015, and 2016, and may be voted on by members of any of those classes through the At-Large Election.

You may vote for as many people as there are spots thumbnailavailable, but once you have submitted your vote, you cannot vote again.

Your feedback is very important for all of us students here at Wesleyan to make our university what we all want it to be. As always, direct any thoughts, complaints, comments, concerns, etc. to or to any representative to the assembly.

Usdan Rehearsal Space for Musicians

Attention Musicians!

Did you know there is a Music Rehearsal space available in Usdan?  In this room are amps, a drum set, piano and microphones – all that thumbnailCAILI342you need to rehearse with your band or on your own! If you are interested in pre-reserving this room you must become a member of the Usdan Student Music Co-Op (USMC) – which is a WSA funded group that maintains the space.  Otherwise, you may only reserve the space on a “walk in” basis on the day of your request at the Usdan Information Desk or by calling ext. 3566.

For those of you who are already USMC members, you have been able to book the room thru the end of drop/add.  In order to be fair, any reservations that were made after September 15 have been cancelled.

To pre-reserve the room and become a USMC member please fill out this online form. Please fill out the form by Monday, September 16th (at the latest) so that we can begin the booking process and get everyone in the system as soon as possible. You can also access the form through the Usdan Website –

Thank you for your patience!
