Annie Ezzell
Wesleyan University
Hi folks! College applications are scary. Mine were especially scary, because I applied to my (mostly liberal arts) schools a year early. I'm now a sophomore at Wesleyan planning to declare a Classics major and Russian and Eastern European studies minor--if you are particularly interested in studying foreign and ancient languages in college, I have a ton of experience doing so! When I'm not in the classics library, I'm involved in reproductive justice advocacy, queer life on campus, and Wesleyan's flourishing music scenes. I think it's crucial to balance considerations of both academic fit and cultural fit when exploring college options, and I would love to help you do just that!
