Hey everyone, my name is George Fuss and I'm from Mamaroneck, New York. I'm a government major with a concentration in American politics and a passion for leftist organizing! I'm currently a junior and I sit on the Community Committee which works to help groups achieve their individual goals and foster a welcoming and connected campus community. This year I'd like to focus on transitioning the campus from Orgsync to Engage, improving our relationship with the Middletown community, and making sure the conduct of the university matches the ideals of its students.

Hi all! My name is Pauline Jaffe, and I am super pumped to be working with the WSA. On campus you can find me studying, giving a tour, going to too many career center events or sleeping. My main initiatives are transparency across faculty and students and increase communication across the board. The past two years I worked on the Community Committee where I mainly met with sports groups to answer questions and be a general resource. This semester I am on the Academic Affairs Committee where I hope to continue the work done on reducing textbook costs to students and to work with the career center on revamping their events with recruiters. I can’t wait to meet all of you around campus, please reach out to me if you want to work on a project or have any questions/comments/concerns. Go Wes!!!

Hi, I'm Ben Garfield, and I'm the Textbook Exchange Guy
I was born and raised in a small Indiana town. I joined the US Navy directly after graduating high school and served for 7 years as an intelligence analyst for Special Operations in support of Navy SEALs in Hawaii. After my time in the service I graduated on the Dean’s List from Paul Mitchell School with a license in cosmetology. Following work at a premier salon and spa in San Diego, I was a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines. I have since graduated from San Diego Mesa College on the Dean’s List with an associate degree in psychology. While at San Diego Mesa College, I worked as an intern for the American Federation of Teachers Guild where I was locally embedded in social and climate justice activism. Last year, I was awarded a full tuition leadership scholarship to Wesleyan University for veterans through the Posse Foundation. I am excited and very blessed to represent my peers on the WSA, for which I believe my academic and career-oriented experiences have equipped me.
I’m Adam Hickey, and I'm one of the very few Wes students from Utah! I’m a sophomore (prospective Government and History double-major), and I couldn’t be more excited to be serving on the WSA. In the past I’ve been heavily involved in debate, theatre, and social activism. I was part of a group of students who organized a walk-out and a March for Our Lives in support of more effective gun control, as well as an organizer for a town hall event featuring candidates for the Utah State Legislature. I intend to push for further political engagement, community involvement, and accountability & transparency among Wesleyan students and administrators. If you have any concerns you want addressed by the WSA, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be sure to raise them.

I’m Sebastian Mendieta, class of 2023, I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia and moved to the United States when I was 11. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to represent the class of ’23 on the WSA this year.

My name is Maya Verghese and I am from Hamden, Connecticut. I am genuinely excited to serve on the Community Committee (CoCo) this semester. I hope to cultivate an effective means of community building by bringing the interdisciplinary mindset of university academics to every aspect of student life. I hope to bring our many organizations together in order to create a more interconnected campus and further connect to greater Middletown. This approach can make this incredibly complex, diverse, and stunning culture, more cohesive in its intent to develop. In addition to representing student interests and ideas on campus, I am currently involved with the Wesleyan Refugee Project on the fundraising, IRAP research, and IRIS volunteer teams. I am also a member of WeShuffle, a student run tap group.
As a newcomer, I do not have as much experience or understanding of university culture as it is today, but I am certain as a member of the WSA I will be able to contribute to what it is tomorrow.
