Panel: Education in Middletown tomorrow

Did you know Middletown High School (pictured above) is a really pretty building? It’s so pretty, I took a nap in front of the front doors once. And it was swell. Tangentially, Sydney Lewis’ 14 writes in:

Middletown Public Schools’ principals, parents, and board members will
come together to discuss education here in Middletown – what works,
what doesn’t, what’s changing, and how Wesleyan can effectively engage
with local schools. Panelists will each speak about their own
experience and role in MPS, followed by Q & A – come with questions!

Date: Wednesday, April 4th
Time: 7.00PM – 8.30PM
Place: PAC 001
Face: OffBook

List of Panelists after the jump.

First Student-Food Worker Coalition Meeting

Apologies to Becca Wilton ’15 for losing the color rainbow that used to be on the event description below. I guess if you want to see that, it’s a listserv exclusive:


Frustrated with the way food employees are treated by students?
Want to get to know some of your favorite Usdan faces better but don’t know how?
Interested in trading recipes, food sustainability ideas, and chances to work with the Usdan chefs and food workers themselves?
Do you want to begin a dialogue and forge an alliance with the very people who make your food?
Then come to the first Student-Food Worker Coalition meeting! The SWC is a subgroup of WesFRESH dedicated to improving the relationship between students and food employees on campus, and to give each other knowledge, ideas, and support to enrich our community. We invite all Bon App employees to be there, so please ask all food service workers to join us!
Join us for our FIRST MEETING: WEDNESDAY APRIL 4TH! There are two different times3:30 PM in Usdan 110 and 6:30 PM in Usdan Multipurpose Room! The same things will be discussed at both meetings; the two different times are just to make sure that everyone who wants to go has a chance. This initial meeting is to get the dialogue going about the relationship students and workers have with each other and the issues involved in that relationship, how we can improve that relationship, and all other kinds of things about sustainability initiatives, food, and how much we love it!
We want as many people to come as possible, so tell your coworkers, your friends, staff, faculty, anyone you know!

Date: Wednesday, April 4th
Time: 3:30 PM and 6:30 PM
Place: Usdan 110 and Usdan Multipurpose Room, respectively

Hey folks.

So, my main homie Avery Truf-wuf-wuf-elman ’13 just hit me up to get the word out on this thing that’s going down this Thursday and Friday:
