Scroll down to meet Bella Barocas '24 and Kelly Fenton-Samuels '23, two of our COE summer research fellows, find out how the recent $2-million grant to the Robert F. Schumann Institute of the COE will help further the COE's mission to change the world, and join us here at Wesleyan for several upcoming events, including our COE Open House (see above) on Monday, October 17; a talk with Oglála Lakȟóta performance artist Suzanne Kite on Wednesday, October 19; and our annual Pumpkin Fest on Saturday, October 29 (see below)!
