Primal Scream at Midnight

Scream your lungs out on the Olin Steps tonight:

‘Tis the season to scream! Some people scream over holiday shopping. Others scream about a pending apocalypse.

But here at Wesleyan, we scream about the monsoon of papers with pending due dates and exams that are scheduled within the next few days. The first ones are tomorrow, so you know what that means…

It’s time to scream your lungs out! Never mind quiet hours, we’re too stressed for that. Let’s engage in one more community gathering — the only chance for community-based stress relief this semester.

At midnight, come out of your study bunkers at Olin, SciLi, wherever you are. You know what to do!

Date: Tonight (technically tomorrow morning)
Time: Gather at 11:55, scream at midnight
Place: Olin steps (or anywhere else on campus)

Documentary Nonfiction and Poetry Reading Tonight

Ford Fellow Emma Mohney ’12 writes in with a pleasant finals diversion this evening:

media-upload

Please join us for a reading of creative nonfiction and poetry by students in Teagle Fellow Kate Thorpe’s course, Creative Criticism and Inquiry: Writing Documentary Nonfiction and Poetry.  Each student in the class chose an archival collection from the holdings of Special Collections & Archives and wrote a creative piece inspired by the collection.  The results are wonderful examples of thinking outside the box of traditional archival research.  The collections chosen range from Civil War letters to the Hewlett Diversity Archive.  A selection of the archival materials will be on display at the reading.

For more information about the program, contact Kate at kthorpe(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Date: Monday, May 13
Time: 5-7 pm
Place: Develin Room, Olin Library

Bennett Kirschner ’13 asks me last minute to post something for him, in what is likely and tragically the last time ever:

Friends, the end is nigh. In celebration of our academic conquests, let us all sit back in the halls of Exley as Gag Reflex transports us to netherworlds and gyrates its lady-like limbs for the last time this year. I, for one, will be there, and I do hope you will be too.
