My inTuition Dreaming that your daughter will go to Wellesley? Trying to figure out how much her tuition might set you back? Phil Levine, professor of economics, has invented a college cost estimator that asks just six straightforward questions before providing a personalized estimate of an individual’s college costs at Wellesley. (Many online calculators require answers to more than 40 questions.) Dean of Admission Jennifer Desjarlais says many students rule out schools based on their sticker prices. The message of the calculator? “If you’re a good fit for Wellesley, our financial-aid polices are designed to help you make it affordable,” she says. Run your numbers at www.wellesley.edu/costestimator.

Farewell TO TWO DEANS

Michelle Lepore, associate dean of students, and Victor Kazanjian, dean of religious and spiritual life and intercultural education, said goodbye to Wellesley as they moved to San Francisco to pursue career options there. Lepore traded her Wellesley blue for cardinal red as she joined Stanford University as assistant dean of admission for alumni volunteer relations. Kazanjian became the executive director of the United Religions Initiative, a global grassroots interfaith organization aimed at ending religiously motivated violence and creating cultures of peace, justice, and healing. At a packed farewell lunch in the Houghton Chapel—a fitting location, as Kazanjian oversaw the renovation of the chapel and the creation of the Multifaith Center in its lower level—the couple, husband and wife, were bedecked with flower crowns as Wellesley community members serenaded them to “If You’re Going to San Francisco.” Through a series of tributes from their colleagues and friends, it was clear just how many people in the College were touched by Kazanjian and Lepore.
