Nowadays, students always seem surprised when there’s something awesome that’s allowed by the administration and ResLife. Understandably so. *cough* However, many students don’t realize that you can – within Wesleyan rules – create a mural on your dorm hall wall.
The mural request form is located here in .doc format. It lists a few stipulations (i.e. the mural cannot cover more than 50% of the white space in a given corridor… etc) but it’s pretty easy. All murals have to be completed by January 1, however, so get working!
In fact, if you suggest it to your RA as a hall program, and work on your mural together, you can even get ResLife funding to buy paint and any supplies you need. Sweet, right?
Unfortunately, this is barely taken advantage of on campus. Let’s change that. Let’s flood them with requests, and make our dorms gorgeous.
(Warning: I hear that they’re not too happy about accepting requests for murals in Fauver Frosh. They’re scared and want to keep impressing the prefrosh. I don’t know.. if I were a prefrosh, I’d be way more awesomed out by a colourful mural than white hotel looking walls, but whatever, to each hir own.)
