WILD Wes Workday Tomorrow, September 21!



Courtesy of Rosy “Scapron” Capron ’14:

Interested in getting involved with sustainability projects at Wesleyan? Want to get your hands dirty while beautifying campus and meeting new people? WILD Wes will be hosting workdays at both the WestCo and Butterfield courtyards, so join us for some post-brunch landscaping! In WestCo we’ll pull weeds, lay woodchip paths, trim kale, and possibly plant some trees. In the Butts we’ll level off the new terraces and care for the raised garden beds. Stop by either site for as long or as short as you’d like.

Date: Tomorrow, Saturday September 21
Time: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Place: WestCo and Butterfield Courtyards

All of the Lights


I know that word has spread around well enough, but to bring it all home, Wesleyan Football will be playing in the first ever NESCAC nighttime game this Saturday! According to Joe, this is a big deal. Come to Corwin Stadium (on Andrus Field) at 6 PM, and support your Cards as they take on the Jumbos. Face paint is encouraged.

Before heading over to the football game, watch the Field Hockey team, led by their captains Amber Bruckner ’14, Blair Ingraham ’14, and Taylor Wells ’14, battle the Bates ‘Cats at noon on Smith Field. Let the excitement build even more at 1:30 PM on Jackson Field when the Men’s Soccer team also takes on Bates.

This will be a great day for our community. When else would we expect 10,000 people to be on campus in one day? So please come out to cheer on our teams, tailgate, and engage in joyful revelry.

Film Series: Much Ado About Nothing

2012. USA. Dir: Joss Whedon. With Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof. 109 min.

The Avengers this ain’t, but Whedon did assemble a super-team of familiar faces for his classy homegrown take on Shakespeare’s comedy about marriage and betrayal. The creative yet loyal ad- aptation teems with wit and romance, hitting the sweet spot for fans of Joss, The Bard, and rom-coms alike.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
