AUDITION FOR WESLEYING!

“Real Student Life at Wesleyan University. And ‘N Sync Medleys!”

Audition for Wesleying! Get psyched to join Wesleyan’s premier online-only a capella group by auditioning this Saturday—in person—in Allbritton 304. Come learn about Wesleyan’s sassiest, and most WordPress-savvy, singing group. Bring a song to sing (preferably a 13-16 minute medley of outtakes from Rent), a virtuosic display of shark dance motions, and a bottomless command of HTML. Dress sharp (eyeliner welcome; pixelated costumes forbidden), and dazzle us with your doo-wop backup grooves and crippling carpal tunnel syndrome. Serenade us of site meters and JPEGs, spambots and reCAPTCHAs. Join Wesleying: Real Bop-Shoo-Wop at Wesleyan University.

Let us know if you have what it takes to, um—blog in your underwear. All students and class years welcome. Giant joints, too.

Date: Tomorrow, Saturday, September 17
Place: Allbritton 304 (conference room, third floor of Allbritton)
Time: 4:30 pm
JOIN: US

(Note: no actual singing. In the words of Sheek: “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.” More from past recruitments after the jump.)

The short of it: Wesleying is Wesleyan’s premier, and most popular, student blog. We are an entirely student-run, student-funded, student-supported blog. We’ve been kickin’, in some form, since founding in 2006 by fairy godmothers Holly and Xue. We want more bloggers. Blah blah blah blah blah. All class years and blogging experience levels welcome. We’re especially hunting for enthusiastic photographers and videographers, news bloggers, internet addicts, photoshop fiends, Wes history fanatics, and web design wizards. No commitment necessary.

A lil bit more from a past recruitment:

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 forgottenpieces 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??

Seriously. Join us. Email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with questions or comments.
