My name is Perri Easley (Class of 2023) and I’m from Morris County, New Jersey. I am currently undecided, but I am leaning towards an American Studies/French Double major with a minor in Film. At the Fries Center for Global Studies (FCGS), I serve as a Communications Assistant to ensure a smooth and flawless execution for all FCGS operations. I also assist with the bi-weekly Wes and the World newsletter.
I was initially drawn to the Fries Center for Global Studies because I have always had a strong commitment to traveling, international affairs, and foreign language. I have studied French for nine years and have completed two extended exchange programs in France. I love the cross-cultural exchange study abroad programs afford to students. I am proud to be a part of a community whose philosophy aligns with my passions.
At Wesleyan, I am involved in a number of organizations. I am an Academic Peer Advisor and I am one of the co-presidents of Active Minds, a mental health awareness club on campus. I am also very involved with political engagement on campus, participating in several E2020 initiatives, and getting out the vote on campus.
In short, I love my involvement with the Fries Center, and I am glad to be continuing my work with them!
