Memorable experiences at Wesleyan:
Foundations of PLs (with Jim Lipton); Bioinformatics (with Danny Krizanc); Topics in Computation (with Norman Danner); Category Theory (with Fred Linton); Infinitary Combinatorics (with Wis Comfort); Model Theory (with Philip Scrowcroft).
Things to do if you're a woman mathematician:
Women in the Mathematics Department (WMD)
This is an organization we started at Wesleyan. We hold social events for women faculty, staff and students at the department to come together and discuss research, job issues, life and whatever else.
Association for Women in Mathematics Education Resources
The AWM education website includes a list of summer programs in the mathematical science for middle to high school aged girls.
The Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women
This is a program for women in their first or second year of undergraduate studies. The goal of the program is to expose students to fields of mathematics usually beyond the undergraduate curriculum.
The George Washington University Summer Program for Women in Mathematics
"This is a five-week intensive program for mathematically- talented undergraduate women who are completing their junior year and may be contemplating graduate study in the mathematical sciences. Goals of this program are to communicate an enthusiasm for mathematics, to develop research skills, to cultivate mathematical self-confidence and independence, and to promote success in graduate school."

Smith College's Center for Women in Mathematics: Post-Bac Program
The Center for Women in Mathematics at Smith College has a year long post-bac program for students who want to reinforce their undergraduate mathematics education before continuing on to graduate school. Students can take a variety of undergraduate and graduate math courses at Smith (or one of the neighbouring colleges or universities) and they have the opportunity to participate in research.
EDGE: Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education
EDGE holds a summer program for women about to enter or are in their first year of graduate school, as well as regional mentoring groups for women in the mathematical sciences.
CaMeW: Career Mentoring Workshop for Women
CaMeW is a annual summer workshop for women mathematicians entering their final year of graduate school. The workshop provides information on the job search process, interviewing and career development. It's a fantastic program staffed by very awesome people!
Speaking of jobs, I ran a career workshop (inspired by CaMeW '08) for graduate students at Wesleyan who were going on the market last year. If you're looking a job in academia then you might find the following helpful:
AWM Workshop for Women Graduate Students and Recent PhDs
This workshop is an opportunity for women graduate students and postdocs to present their work and discuss career development issues. This year the workshop will be held in conjunction with the Joint Meetings.
Project NEXT: New Experiences in Teaching
"This is a professional development program for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences. It addresses all aspects of an academic career: improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in research and scholarship, and participating in professional activities."
