Crossing Lines

Talia Baurer ’15 wants you to start off Yom Kippur right this year:

Come to the Bayit Tuesday night for a group reflection activity to start off the year! You may have done a version of this activity before, but this time it will fulfill your wildest dreams… of reflecting. Basically, a leader reads out statements and people stand on one side of the room if the statement applies to them, the other if it doesn’t, or stand in the middle if they are unsure, don’t want to answer, or anything else that isn’t yes or no. It is a serious (and hopefully meaningful) activity, and there will be a brief discussion afterwards for those who want to participate.

Date: Tuesday, September 25
Time: 9:00-10:30 PM
Place: The Bayit (157 Church St)

College Democrats of Connecticut Convention

To all ye Democrats, a message from “King of the Dems” Ben Florsheim ’14: the College Democrats of Connecticut are hosting their yearly convention right on our home turf this Saturday, September 29th! Here’s the scoop:

The CDCT Annual Convention will be a great way for students to learn valuable campaign skills and to meet / hear from other Democratic students and elected officials. Among other things, there will be a “Campaign 101” training session, various speakers (such as local and state officials, campaign workers, etc.) and then door knocking for Chris Murphy, Connecticut’s Democratic candidate for US Senate.

Additionally, if you are interested in running for a leadership position in CDCT, such as President, Vice-President, Secretary or Treasurer, email Ben for more information. And last, but certainly not least: free lunch and dinner will be provided for all attendees!
