Last night, WSA President Zachary Malter ’13 passed along this message to students:
On Tuesday, April 9th, at 7:30 pm in the Memorial Chapel, the WSA will be hosting a talk by author and journalist Jacques Steinberg, titled “Beyond the Gatekeepers: The State of College Access and Affordability in America.” All students are encouraged to attend.
Jacques Steinberg is the author of “The Gatekeepers: Inside the Admissions Process of a Premier College,” a New York Times-best seller about the Wesleyan admissions process. Jacques was a journalist at The New York Times for nearly 25 years, most recently as its senior editor for education initiatives. Jacques left The Times in 2013 to join the senior leadership team at Say Yes to Education, a national non-profit organization based in New York City that provides an array of services to families in low-income districts – all with the goal of raising high-school and college graduation rates.
The talk is a part of the WSA’s New York Times Readership Program. A book signing in Zelnick Pavilion will follow the talk and books will be available for purchase there.
We hope to see you there tomorrow!
