About

Meaningful Action
Our mission is to promote an intelligent interest in political questions of the day by translating thoughts into meaningful action, and providing platforms for political advocacy. In executing this mission, the sisters of Agora uphold the pillars of Sisterhood, Citizenship, Politics, and Service.   Each year we vote upon a political and/or social issue that we believe is relevant both domestically and internationally; dedicating the fall semester on the domestic aspects of the topic and shifting to an international focus in the spring. During each semester, we seek to make a difference with regard to our chosen issue by fostering discussion, hosting lectures, organizing a fundraiser, and performing community service.

Teaing

The sisters of Agora welcome all students to apply for membership. If you are interested in joining our society, you are required to partake in the process of “teaing.” Historically, Wellesley College organizations have hosted teas as a way to come together and form a community outside of the classroom. At the beginning of each semester, societies on campus host their own open houses and teas as part of the application process. During this period, prospective members are encouraged to visit all of the societies before deciding which are the best fit for them. As the political society, we discuss current political matters at our weekly meetings. Each semester we choose a specific charity that is related to our central theme for that year, and as a society, we dedicate personal time to take action in the community through fundraising, spreading awareness, hosting lectures, and providing services to those in need. Based on our commitment to turning thought into action, Agora seeks candidates who are passionate about politics as well as those willing to make a difference. Together, we to provide a creative and positive environment that promotes teamwork alongside individual initiative. If Agora sounds like the society for you, please consider taking the following actions: Come to our Open House. Doing so will give you a chance to meet the current members, gain a better understanding of what do, and receive more information about the society itself Attend the teas. Not only is attendance of at least two of three teas required for candidacy, attendance at these teas will also allow the members to get to know you Complete the written application and the project. The written and project portions of the application are anonymous and together they will give members an unbiased look at your political passions, general interests, and creative genius. Express yourself! *Note: You must be in your second semester of Wellesley (or higher) to apply. However you are still welcome and encouraged to attend the teas! For individual questions, please email agorasocietywellesley@gmail.com
