A bunch of our biggest contributors graduated last semester, and we are very actively accepting new ones this year. This could mean you!
Wesleying was created as a student-driven space to promote a sense of community on campus, and we hope we’ve helped do so over the past three years. Now that we’re settled here on our new site and processing events won’t be as time-sucking as before, we’re bringing the focus back to content.
As a Wesleying blogger you can be part of Wesleyan’s most frequently read media source, with the potential to shape campus discourse and the ability to keep Wespeople informed and entertained… and procrastinating. Wesleying is as good as whatever its contributors put into it, so let us know what you’ve got.
Do you know or have a lot to say about Weslife? Do you or people you know do cool stuff on/around campus? Do you want to break news as it happens? Do you take sweet campus photos? Do you like to Photoshop things? Are you into Wes music, and can you describe it in words? Are you a human filter for Internet media? Do you know your memes? Are you a news junkie with an eye for things relevant to us at Wes? Do you possess keen wit and/or discerning taste? Do you write good? Does weird/messed up shit happen to you or your friends sometimes; wanna talk about it?
Are you into digging up forgotten pieces of Wes history? Do you know secret things? Do you explore little-known, little-seen parts of campus? Is campus deconstruction second nature after you took Intro Sociology? Do you have more opinions than your friends can bear to listen to? Do u miss wen we used 2 speak LOLspeak? Do you miss yesteryear’s Wesleyan weirdness; wanna bring it back/keep it going? Do you think things just aren’t the same as they used to be? Do you want to keep up the kind of content we’ve been posting over the years? Do you have a perspective you think we’re missing, or have been neglecting lately? Are you just REALLY EXCITED TO BE HERE??
If the answer to any (or a few, or all) of the above is yes, join Wesleying! Previous blogging experience is excellent but not necessary, and all grades are welcome. All you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently, and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.
Recruitment meeting is Friday at 4:15 pm in the Andersen meeting room (110) in Usdan. Come meet the people behind this thing and find out all you need to know.
Date: Friday, September 11
Time: 4:15 pm
Place: Usdan 110
[EDIT: Friday afternoon]
It’s cool if you missed the interest meeting – if you’re still interested, email us at staff(at)wesleying.org with your name, class year, and a little bit about yourself and why you want to join Wesleying.
