WesInterpreters Presents: Interpretation Workshop with Sandra Cardone

simultaneous-interpretation-equipment-bosch-interpreting-colombiaFrom Jenny Cascino ’17:

Professional court interpreter Sandra Cardone is returning to campus next week to host a two-part interpretation workshop on general interpretation techniques between Spanish and English.

Ms. Cardone specializes in training interpreters for the Connecticut court system, so what better chance to start dabbling in the art of interpretation if you’re new to it or have wanted to try ever since you saw Nicole Kidman in “The Interpreter”? Her training sessions at Wes two years ago were extremely informative and popular among attendees, so make sure to bring your lunch along to PAC the next two Tuesdays at 12 to get in on the Spanish/English fun!

Hosted by WesInterpreters.

Date: Tuesday, April 29
Time: 12-1 p.m.
Place: PAC 001

A Day with WesAlum Adam Poswolsky ’05: Brown Bag Lunch, Dinner, and Drop-In Hours


From Jelisa Adair ’13:

The Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship and the Career Center invite students to meet Wes alum Adam Smiley Poswolsky ’05, a social entrepreneur and intrapreneur who writes about purpose-driven work in his new book The Quarter-Life Breakthrough.

If you have a project with social impact, if you think you might want a mission-driven career, or if you simply want to hear about how to find meaningful work, we hope you will join us for one or more of these events on Tuesday, April 29, 2014:

Food Not Bombs Points Drive

Josh Krugman ’13 writes in:Do you have lots of extra points?

Consider donating them to


All day Monday.

Just tell the cashiers in Weshop how many points you want to donate and they’ll do it right along with your purchase!

Our points get erased at the end of the year so this is a good way not to waste them while supporting food justice and activism in Middletown.

The bulk dry goods that FNB buys every year with donated points form the staple of our meals throughout the year!

Thank you!

Also, the Food Not Bombs meal happens every Sunday at 1 p.m. on the sidewalk outside of the Buttonwood Tree, 604 Main St. in Middletown. Good food, good talk, and sometimes drumming!
