Project $ave

So chalking has cost the university $100,000, yeah? Let’s get everyone to submit “Lift Chalking Ban” as a project $ave idea. Since they’re so into $aving monie$.

It takes 2 seconds. Even if you don’t chalk, tag, or protest, imagine what it would be like if 900+ people submitted it as a legimately great idea. Let’s show our solidarity and commitment to keeping Wes weird in a way that they can’t SJB us for!

Here’s the site:

Here’s an example of what you can write, so just copy and paste if you’re lazy:

Your Suggestion: Lift the Chalking Ban!

How would this suggestion save money or increase efficiency: Chalking has cost the university $100,000 over 3 years, according to Physical plant. That’s over $30,000 a year for what rain does for free!

Office(s) or people that might benefit: All students on campus that have their tuition raised to cover the costs of erasing the chalk. Prefrosh who are dismayed to find out that their 1st choice university is not what it claims to be. Weshop, since it can benefit from the sale of chalk. Wesleyan groundskeepers and custodial staff.

    I don’t understand why they need to wash away ALL of the chalk. The offensive, racist and/or homophobic chalking should be cleaned away, but not the rest. It’s just chalk (not spray paint!) and I definitely agree that they should just leave the harmless messages to nature instead of spending so much cleaning up what will inevitably come back.Also, whoever handed out the 1200 pieces of chalk is GENIUS. that made my day!
