Wednesday December 12, 2001

Josh Daniels selected as head resident at Wesleyan University  


Josh Daniels, a junior at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., has been selected to be the head resident of The Butterfield, a Residence Hall for the 2001-2002 academic year.  

Daniels, a graduate of Berkeley High School, is the son of Joan Daniels and is a resident of Berkeley, according to a Wesleyan press release. 

The head residents are experienced, student residential staff, who are specifically trained to deal effectively with issues of student life and residence-hall administration. Each head resident, who supervises a staff of resident advisers, is responsible for the quality of life in the assigned residential area in which they reside. If a resident experiences a problem requiring more skilled intervention, the HR will provide the necessary assistance.  

Wesleyan enrolls approximately 2,700 undergraduates, who pursue a curriculum in the liberal arts and sciences. Approximately 150 graduate students are enrolled in masters and doctoral programs in sciences, mathematics and ethnomusicology. 


Nicholas Yim studies down under 


MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Nicholas Yim, son of Darrell and Linda Yim of Berkeley, spent the fall of 2001 studying at the James Cook University in Australia as part of the Middlebury College Study Abroad program. Yim is a member of the Middlebury class of 2003. 

During each school year, more than half of the college’s junior class participates in study abroad – it is anticipated that nearly 350 Middlebury students will travel to 40 countries and enter 90 different programs and universities this year. 

Middlebury encourages students to take part in the study abroad program during their junior year, and the college’s off-campus study office helps them to enroll in schools around the globe for one or two semesters.  

Students gain academic credit for successfully completed coursework in the program. They bring back an enhanced international perspective before they graduate with the rest of their classmates upon completion of their remaining senior year, according to a Middlebury press statement.  

To be eligible for the study abroad program, students must maintain an overall grade average of B- or better, as well as an average of B or better in the major, proficiency at the advanced level in the language of the country, and a strong academic rationale for studying abroad.
