Immigration, Open Borders, and a Free Society

A chance to talk about real world issues with students who care about them, from Charlie Smith ’15:

Political dialogue on immigration policy can best be characterized as broken or nonexistent. This is particularly disappointing considering that by some estimates a policy of open borders would double world GDP. However, what are the costs, dangers, and challenges associated with a policy of open borders? And do the benefits outweigh the costs?

Come discuss immigration policy and the potential for open borders with Wesleyan Students for a Free Society

Date: Tuesday, April 9th, 2013
Time: 8:30 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 111
Cost: 2x World GDP

Call for Proposals for Green St. After School Program, Fall 2013

Here’s another one from your dedicated Green Street correspondent, Whoever Puts Up the Post ’13:


In the interest of expanding the curriculum offered to students in our After School programming, we are currently seeking  proposals for innovative and invigorating arts, science, math, and interdisciplinary courses at the Green Street Arts Center (which is also now home to PIMMS,  the Project to  Increase the Mastery of Mathematics and Science).  Green Street currently offers After School programming to 1st-8th grade students, who elect to enroll in classes from one to five days per week.  Classes are typically one hour long and meet once per week.  Classes for middle school students are offered on Mondays through Fridays from 3-4:00 p.m and 4-5:00 p.m., while classes for 1st-5th graders are scheduled from 4-5:00 p.m.We currently offer classes in Visual Arts, Dance and Movement, Music, Theater, Science, and interdisciplinary topics, as well.  More specifically, our most recent After School course offerings have included such topics as:  graffiti, fashion design, animation, art & science, digital photography, mask making, playwriting, improvisational theater, breakdance, hip hop, capoeira, circus, clowning, yoga, songwriting, instrumental music, African drumming, science experiments, sign language, Spanish culture, and more. We strongly encourage the proposal of interdisciplinary classes, especially classes which explore the intersections of art, math, and science.
