Middletown-Wesleyan Relations Summit

Midwes Summit PosterGiven recent discussions about Wesleyan’s relationship with the Middletown community, the WSA’s Middletown Wesleyan Relations Committee (known as “MidWes”) is inviting students to the Middletown-Wesleyan Relationship Student Summit, happening this Saturday April 27th from 1-3 PM in Albritton 311:

The summit will be an interactive and collaborative meeting between students who have been involved in Middletown (or who have an interest in doing so) and the members of the WSA’s Wesleyan-Middletown Relations Committee, known as “MidWes.” A primary goal of this gathering is to find ways to strengthen the town-university relationship, namely by fostering more collaboration among students who are involved in the Middletown community.

As an added bonus, there will be free and delicious vegetarian food from Udupi, a local southeast Indian restaurant, and the summit will end in time to celebrate Holi on Foss Hill!

Take Back The Night

Take Back The Night

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that Take Back the Night is taking place tonight. But, just in case, Alysha Warren has you covered in filling you in on the details. It’s an event that should be a priority for every member of our campus community.

Students for Consent and Communication will be holding the annual Take Back the Night march as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month on Thursday,  April 25th at 7pm.

Take Back the Night brings the community together to speak out and take a stand against sexual violence. The event raises awareness about sexual violence and provides survivors with a safe space to share their stories. Through the march around campus, speak out circles and candlelight vigil we will create a safe and caring space where every survivor has a voice. The speak out circles are confidential and we ask that you do not repeat anything that is heard in these circles. Onomatopoeia and the Wesleyan Spirits will share their talents and refreshments will be provided by various student groups.

Break the silence and support the Wesleyan community!!

Date: Thursday, April 25th
Time: 7pm
Location: Steps of Olin (RAIN LOCATION: Malcolm X House)

VegOut Mindful Meal

From Manon Lefèvre ’14:

BuHo and WesFRESH invite you to a combined Mindful Meal and VegOut
this Friday evening! We’ll be cooking up a gigantic delicious
vegetarian, community meal cooked from locally sourced ingredients.
The mindful meal is an opportunity to thoughtfully reflect on the
processes that bring good food to our plates and beyond, considering
our meal as a part of much larger food system. We will take the time
to appreciate this holistic approach to thinking about food from farm
to fork to waste, all facets of the food movement represented on
campus. It’s a celebration of good food and good people!

For this VegOut we’ll be selling tickets in Usdan this week for $4 –
we’re hoping to make enough money to keep VegOut self-sustainable, so
contributions are appreciated. Please bring your own utensils and
plates!

This meal is co-sponsored by Buddhist House, Farm House, Out House,
Earth House, WesFRESH, and SALD

When: Friday, April 26th, 6:30 – 8pm
Where: Buddhist House
Cost: $4
