Polls Open, Blurbs Here

This, my friends, is the moment you’ve all been waiting for.  I’m not even sure I mean the polls opening as much as I do the blurbs being published.  The following WSA Elections are now open:

  • 2015 Class Representative
  • At-Large Representative
  • Fall 2011 Survey

Go to http://wsa.wesleyan.edu/voting/ to vote before the end of the week.  If you don’t vote, don’t complain later.  Keep reading to see the blurbs that were submitted to Wesleying before the deadline we mentioned earlier.

” Sure, there is a wikipedia page on me. And I’m the youngest organizational consultant to the UN. But I still cannot grow a beard. What do I promise if I lose? I think I’ll just go down and have some pudding and wait for it all to turn up…. It always does in the end (to quote Luna Love(me)good.”)

Wesleyan is awesome because its passionate student body constantly calls for reform,and because it has the WSA to help students implement that reform school-wide, makingWesleyan one of the most dynamic campuses in the country. I want to be a WSA member so I can be a part of that change and student empowerment (especially the students in the Class of 2015!).
I worked for change before as the head of my high school Environment Committee and member of student government, and am confident that I can draw on this experience to fairly represent our numerous and diverse class. I have project ideas like cutting book costs, installing motion-sensor lights – but the ideas that interest me most are those of my classmates. I am eager to hear what you all have to say, and to make sure that the rest of campus hears you also.
P.S. To see more of my ideas, as well as learn how/when to vote, check out my fb page!

Heyyyy Class of 2015! I’m Davion! I would like to be a representative for the WSA :). Let’s see. I’m new to this but what I would like to focus on if elected is relationships. Relationships between the WSA and the freshman class. I want to make sure that any problem that arises can be correctly addressed in the WSA. By doing this I hope to have a great year and make sure that the voice of the class of 2015 is heard and respected. Kay, well go vote!

My platform is pretty simple; the WSA doesn’t do nearly enough to make sure that it represents the interests and priorities of the s

tudent body. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your Sunday evening and sit through a two-hour meeting just to ask that the Butts get hot water back, or suggest that more transportation out of Middletown might be a good idea.  Here are three easy ways the WSA can get better without spending a dime:

  1. Have one WSA member available in Usdan during lunch every day to answer questions and take suggestions. This would be only be a 1 hour/month time commitment for each WSA member.
  2. You should be able to submit a one-minute statement to a WSA meeting in writing, audio, or video. Again, there’s no reason why you should have to physically come to a meeting to have your voice heard.
  3. After every meeting, the WSA should release a SHORT, easily understood summary of what was accomplished and what will be discussed at the next meeting, which should be available on the website, Facebook and Twitter. The last set of minutes posted online are from April 2010; that sucks.


The survey is an important because the WSA needs to know what’s up.  Cool?

    Anyone else notice that not enough people are even running for the WSA to fill the open seats? What’s that say about us?

      It means we have better things to do on Sunday nights, like listening to the Black Squirrel’s commands to burn down North College.
