Wesleyan’s chapter of the Roosevelt Institute welcomes you to the WesRoosevelt blog — the premier place for news, politics, and opinions for Wesleyan students.

What is the Roosevelt Institute, you ask? From the national website:

The Roosevelt Institute is a nonprofit organization devoted to carrying forward the legacy and values of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt by developing progressive ideas and bold leadership in the service of restoring America’s health and security.

WesRoosevelt’s main on-campus features are weekly “fire-side chats” to discuss current political events. This last semester, WesRoosevelt held discussions on everything from the Arab Spring to the death of Osama bin Laden. These discussions aim to be stimulating, engaging, and open to all. This year, WesRoosevelt will also be maintaining this shiny, new blog for your reading pleasure.
