BECAUSE just being smart has never been enough for us—we came here to invent the world. BECAUSE this place transformed higher education and redefined “access.” BECAUSE the freedom—the challenge—to make our own paths would be overwhelming to some. But not us. Not fifty years ago. Not a century ago. Not today. BECAUSE every one of us has found a different way to change the status quo for the better. BECAUSE Wesleyan taught us not only to fight for the causes we believe in but how to win them. BECAUSE Wesleyan is our cause.
