The Wesleyan Spirits, Wesleyan’s oldest, all-male acappella group, are holding auditions for any dudes, homies, sk8er boiz, ballas, hustlas, pimps, playas, bros, or all around good-guys with angelic voices.Bring something to sing, a funny joke or haiku, a pen, and anything else that makes you feel special.

The Wesleyan Spirits is the oldest all-male singing group at Wesleyan University. Now in our 32nd year, we are committed to performing a diverse, ever-changing repertoire of beautiful and challenging music while upholding the great singing tradition of Wesleyan… and to having a great time in the process.

Sign up For New Student Forum: Education Policy in the United States

Portuguese Water Dogs have nothing to do with Education Policy. That doesn’t mean they aren’t cute.

Sydney Lewis ’14 writes in to tell us about a new student forum, Education Policy in the United States, targeting those sociologically-intrigued Wesminds. This forum is being lead by Lewis, Andy Ribner ‘14 and Catherine Doren ‘13The class meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30-6, with the first meeting being this Thursday. If Education Policy tickles your fancy, than this basic course description will really rev your engines: 

This forum will provide students with an understanding of education policy in the United States. Based on the interest in WeSFER (Students for Education Reform), the new Study of Education Certificate, and other education activism on campus, there seems to be a great deal of energy and interest among students interested in education. This forum will address those interests and support student activism for education reform by providing students with a strong background in education policy.
