Potluck and Elections Fall 2013

FASA Potluck and Elections, Fall 2013

It has become a tradition for Freeman Scholars to get together at the beginning of the school year to enjoy some good company of other scholars who have just returned to campus and of those who have just started their studies at Wesleyan, over delectable home-cooked meals prepared by the members and friends of FASA. This semester, our potluck and elections were held on Saturday, September 14 2013, at Allbritton 311.

The Freeman potluck and elections, with all the delicious varieties of food, were a huge success. The evening culminated in a discussion in which all the Freeman Scholars had the chance to ponder upon and express their ideas on the association and the scholarship program.
