Fashion Show Model Tryouts

From Mfundi Makama ’14:

It’s almost that time of year again! Wesfest is around the corner and
so is the Fashion Show! You do not want to miss this year’s fashion
show. There will be a new location, traditional fashion show setup,
better sound, amazing lights, and performances you will not want to
miss!

Students who are interested in MODELing in the show should come to
auditions/sign ups in the Usdan Multipurpose Room (located in the
basement of Usdan) on Thursday, February 27th from 7-10PM & Saturday,
March 1st from 5:30-8PM.

Students Want Wes to Divest

WHAT IS THIS?

When the Board of Trustees came last semester, we made a display in front of Usdan with photos of 160 students holding reasons of why Wes should divest. The Board is coming again this semester, and on Friday at 11:50am, we are recreating our action from last semester, but with real people holding signs explaining why they want Wes to divest.

WHY SHOULD I SHOW UP?

Your attendance is the most powerful way to show your support for Wesleyan’s divestment from fossil fuels. We need student support to let administration know that they can’t wait us out, that we aren’t relenting, and most importantly, that Wesleyan students will NOT be complacent when the destruction of frontline communities, and ultimately our planet, is at stake.

wait, what the heck is wes, divest? go here

When: Friday, February 28th
Time: 11:50 am
Where: Walkway between Usdan and Albritton, in front of North College

Film Series: Six Million and One

Upon finding his late father’s memoirs, Fisher recruited his reluctant siblings to explore their parent’s life, including visits to the concentration camps in which he was imprisoned during the Holocaust. Yet this dark past leads to affectionate bonding in the present, as the younger generation joke and bicker among themselves. Speaker: director Fisher.
