From May Treuhaft-Ali ’17:

Do you ever feel like all the hot ones are robots? Do you wish that your lipstick doubled as a laser gun? Don’t you hate it when your clones won’t let you sit shotgun in the hovercraft?

Welcome to SONG FOR A FUTURE GENERATION, a comedy that takes place in the future at a dance party on a space shuttle orbiting around an exploding star. The 13- person cast will play time travelers, shapeshifters, aliens, and psychics. They will also get to make puns, karate chop each other and rock out to a whole lot of ’80s jams.

Auditions will take place Wednesday 9/3 and Thursday 9/4 from 4:30 to 6:30. Sides will be provided — no preparation or experience necessary!

Date: Wednesday, September 3rd – Thursday, September 4th.
Time: 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Place: The Jones Room (CFA Theater Studios)

Waste Not! Tag Sale

c/o me

From Molly Steinfeld ’15:

Worried that your Grateful Dead poster will be lonely on your dorm room walls? Wanting a love seat for some luvin’? Needing a place to heat up your cup-o-noodle? Then come to Waste Not!, Wesleyan’s annual tag sale, where all of these items and more will be available for purchase.

In the Spring, students donate items as they move out of housing. These items are then stored over the summer and available for purchase by students in the Fall. Proceeds go towards sustaining the program, and the rest goes to charity.

We have refrigerators, microwaves, chairs, couches, lamps, mirrors, and a million odds and ends. Bigger items such as furniture will be at the Fountain location, and miscellaneous items will be at the Brainerd garage. The sale will be on August 30th and 31st. There will be signs around campus to direct you to the TWO locations.

WesHack Bootcamp and Hackathon

WesHack2

WesHack is a two-part conference that welcomes Wesleyan students and alumni to pick up new tech skills or to flaunt the ones they’ve got. Track one offers a day-long bootcamp with workshops on front-end design, web app development, video editing, graphic design, and more. You’ll leave armed with basic skills and a good sense of the tools and know-how you’ll need to bring your ideas to life. This crash-course is open to people of all experience levels, so anyone looking to grow their skill set or boost their online presence is encouraged to attend.

The lineup of presenters is well-stocked with impressive Wes students, alumni and friends in the tech world – like software engineer and WesHack co-founder Julian Applebaum ’13, Lily Herman ’16, and Olayinka Lawal ’15 – who will answer  your burning questions in the Q&As and student entrepreneur panel.

If you’d like some competition and teamwork in your WesHack experience, register for the 48-hour Hackathon! From Friday, September 5 at noon to Sunday, September 7 at midnight or noon,  teams will develop Wes-themed apps, which will be judged by expert alumni for their creativity, technical difficulty, and polish. There are many roles to be filled in each project, so all levels of expertise are welcome – experienced programmers and enthusiastic newbs alike.
