WSA Winter Elections Info Session

Screen Shot 2013-11-16 at 2.29.30 PM

From the super hip and funky fresh Jacob Musinsky ’15:

Ever feel like there is something you wish you could change about Wesleyan? Are you interested in working on policies concerning financial aid, residential life, student life, academics, dining, social justice, and other issues facing the student body? Do you want to be involved in working with student groups – from helping them budget their activities, to bringing them into important conversations where the WSA could benefit from their input? Do you want to keep Wes weird, sustainable, affordable, and just an overall awesome place?

If so, consider running for a spot on the WSA in the Winter Election!  If you are interested, election petitions will be available Monday, November 18th, and are due at 5:00 PM on Friday, November 22nd to the WSA office on the bottom floor of Usdan. A mandatory candidate meeting will then take place at 5:00 PM on the 22nd in 41 Wyllys Room 112. Voting will occur when we return from Thanksgiving Break, from December 2nd to December 6th.

An information session explaining both the general workings of the WSA and the election process will occur on Sunday, November 17, from 1-2PM in Allbritton 311.

If you’re looking to make a change at Wesleyan and represent your friends, classmates and fellow students, then the WSA could be the place for you! If you want to get in touch with us – you can email us at wsa(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, check out our website, or tweet at us.

Date: Tomorrow, November 17th
Time: 1pm-2pm
Place: Allbritton 311

Punchline Gives Thanks


Cade Leebron ’14 writes:

Come feast with Punchline! (Wesleyan’s first/greatest/last/only stand-up comedy collective) as we stuff ourselves with delicious comedy and give thanks for all our blessings (namely, three brand-new members).

Laugh with us, cry with us, feel uncomfortably full with us, and argue with us like we’re your very own relatives!

There will be speakers from St. Vincent du Paul’s homelessness outreach group LEADS, and afterwards, there will be an open community forum about the issues of hunger and homeless with the goal of creating one actionable item we can commit to as a community to alleviate some of the struggles associated with hunger and homelessness.

Please come. Cooking at First Church from 1-5– come to help if you can; clothes drive next to St. Vincent from 3-5, for those who want to attend; dinner from 5:00-7:30.

Film Series: Nights of Cabiria

1957. Italy. Dir: Federico Fellini. With Giulietta Masina. 110 min.

Masina delivers a splendid, sprightly performance as a down-on-her-luck prostitute who wanders the streets of Rome, suffering repeated heartbreak but somehow always managing to rebound with wide-eyed optimism. At turns uproariously joyous and heart-wrenchingly tragic, the film tells a haunting yet unceasingly humanistic tale of a desperate soul.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
