Rho Ep Information Session

rho epFrom Rho Ep:

Do you identify as female? Are you curious about Greek life? Do you want to meet other women at Wesleyan? Then you should consider rushing Rho Epsilon Pi, Wesleyan’s only sorority.

We’ll have two information sessions to let you know what we’re all about before the formal rush process begins. So come on by to 41 Wyllys, Room 112 to chat with us and determine whether you might be interested! All grade levels are welcome!

We’ll host info sessions on Tuesday, February 9th @ 8:15pm & Wednesday, February 10th @ 7:30pm. We will be covering the history of Rho Ep, the rush process, how we are trying to redefine sorority, and more! If you are at all interested in Rho Ep and what we do, this is the best way to find out.

If you can’t make it to either meeting or have questions about the sorority or rush process, please send a message to rhoeprush[at]gmail[dot]com.

Help us shape our sorority into an organization that our entire student body can take pride in at Wesleyan. Rho Epsilon Pi is open to any Wesleyan student who identifies as female.

Wesleyan Doula Project Info Sessions

doulaproject2Hannah Sokoloff-Rubin, Jesalyn Ortiz, and Alexandra Stovicek write in:

Passionate about reproductive health? Interested in working as a patient advocate in local abortion clinics? Want to be involved in the only college-based doula project in the country?

Apply to be trained as an abortion doula with the Wesleyan Doula Project!

For security reasons, people who get abortions aren’t allowed to bring anyone with them for support during or after their procedures.  Our project trains Wes students to offer that missing support – as doulas, we volunteer weekly at local abortion clinics to provide patients with emotional and physical support and advocacy during their procedures and recovery.

We will be holding our annual training on April 2-3! If you are interested in applying, you must attend ONE of our two info sessions and complete an application and interview process.  More details (and snacks!) at the info sessions.

INFO SESSION 1: Monday, February 8 from 7-8 PM in 41 Wyllys Room 113

INFO SESSION 2: Wednesday, February 10 from 7-8 in PAC 104

yoga is scary and screws with your mind. or it’s calming. sometimes your teacher is constantly adjusting you. sometimes they’re drilling you. sometimes your teacher is a long haired yogi master who is always levitating in full lotus position. yoga, when done in a group setting, may be an intentional way to commit to your practice. or it may feel like a mere robotic repetition of positions passed down from the time of the vedas. or it may be a way to connect with your inner self.
COME AUDITION FOR SAVASANA, a psychothriller short film written & directed by Jacob Seltzer about a yoga teacher training course! Em, the protagonist, is battling her inner demons and looks to yoga in order to cure herself, but when she participates in a yoga teacher training course led by Mark, a manipulative yet seductive guru, the class becomes a cultish experience that complicates internal struggle with an external struggle she must conquer as well.
Come audition! Everyone is welcome!
No need to prepare anything. Sides will be provided
