Wes History

For the past, oh, few months, the Wesleyan homepage has featured a link that leads to a nice little section of the site that they set aside for Wes’ 175th birthday celebration this past summer. Among the offerings, there are a really nice set of computer wallpapers available in a variety of resolutions that are made from scanned historical images from Wesleyan’s archives. My favorite is this one of a 1937 gathering of stodgy old Mystical Seven alumni, mainly because no one’s seen the intact temple for about a decade now. Next time you pass the gutted shell of that creepy-ass building, picture the busted seven-sided star above the front door full of stained glass and then go nail a letter to the plywood door telling them to fix their fucking building. Word is that at least one of the two Mystical Seven factions has a campus center mailbox; Cookies to whoever finds it.

Also something of interest: If you go to the website of Barkin Associates Architects and then to their Wesleyan University section, you’ll see the following note:

Literary Society – Mystical Seven Building, New Construction

    If you’re in the know, Mystical Seven building is getting renovated. Psafe and UR have keys to the building. (I am not a Mystical Seven document, I’m just noting what I read on various documents left lying around by certain parties)

    actually, i think the deal with mailbox isn’t actually that they have one, but rather anything that comes addressed to mystical seven gets sent to university relations and then they send it to their super secret lair. at least that is what we did when i worked there.
