This year FASA came up with a fresh idea of letting all scholars to vote for social events to be held over the spring semester. Each member is entitled to rank top three preferences among six possible options.
To make the most out of Winter Olympics season, it is only right for FASA to hold an ice skating event as its first social event of the semester!

Freeman scholars gathered at the Spurrier-Snyder Hockey Rink, Freeman Athletic Center on Sunday afternoon, Feb 22, 2014. Some of us showcased their hidden ice skating talent and some spent the fun time learning how to skate for the first time.

Sunday is study day for Wesleyan students, and brunch is life’s sweet distraction when the workweek is nigh. Freeman scholars gathered on the cool morning of October 13 at German Haus to enjoy a delectable, indulgent brunch in good company before heading to their study spots.
