Dance, Monkey, Dance

comoMiranda “Dance Maven” Orbach ’15 invites you to audition for Collective Motion, Wesleyan’s most horizontal dance group (although they sometimes perform vertically)

Collective Motion is a Wesleyan dance group that allows all members to
dance in and choreograph for our performances each semester. Any and

Screenwriters’ Lounge Inaugural Session

S_Lounge_MaratFrom Joseph Eusebio ’17:

Screenwriters’ Lounge will act as a weekly gathering place for all those interested in screenwriting, learning the form (we can teach you!), or simply hanging out. The current structure is loose, but it will always involve snacks, drinks, friends, and a cozy space.

If you have something you’re working on or something you’ve completed, please bring it! As a part of the newly established/funded Wesleyan Film Project, we can also help you produce your material, and will be planning film and screenwriting events throughout the year.

Mondays, 8-10pm, Shapiro Creative Writing Center

Come to the inaugural session for new friends and special snacks — Facebook event here.

Date: Monday, September 29 (and every Monday)
Time: 8-10 PM
Place: Shapiro Creative Writing Center

Identity Crisis Newsletter Interest Meeting

IdentityCrisis

From Sasha Stahl ’17:

It feels really good when people say something you can relate to or connect with. People at Wesleyan have varied, unique identities that cover a breadth of experiences, opinions, and attitudes that can both allow us to understand where our peers are coming from or conversely, not quite relate to one another.

To that end, what I want to CREATE is a brief, bimonthly NEWSLETTER that allows people to relate to one another, through a sharing of personal anecdotes, a section highlighting a Wesleyan student of the week who has focused on their identity in some way, and an “overheard this week” section, among others. Simultaneously I want people to feel EMPOWERED and COMFORTED by the knowledge that people on campus experience similar feelings, frustrations, and feats as they do. I want this newsletter to help people on campus realize the different identities and experiences that make up this campus, while also creating a dialogue to speak about these differences.
