for seniors this semester, according to Pati Alexan-
der, director of student records and registration.
Approximately 400 seniors are currently
enrolled, Alexander said.
All students with 91 or more hours will have the
option of dropping registration cards off or mailing
them to Wesleyan's student record office during the
week of Nov. 6-10.
Alexander said, "Last April, we informally sur-
veyed the seniors to see if there is anything we can
do to improve the [registration] process.
"We will register them and mail an invoice back
Seniors who choose to let the office register for
them need to have their advisers sign their registra-
tion cards in advance.
Those who choose not to mail the cards in or
drop them off still have the option of doing timecard
registration with the Weekend University students
Nov. 11 or with the undergraduate students Nov. 14-
Alexander said, "We're trying to get [the
seniors] in the week of Nov. 6, and I think it will be
a service to the seniors."

Martinez said, "She would cry at night, praying
to God how she would make it through the next
Because her husband suffers from multiple ill-
nesses, Anzaldua still walks to Wesleyan every day
to work and support herself and her husband.

tion to her and she loves her mother for everything
