PSA from Josh Davidoff ’18 and Will Barr ’18:

Come over to the West College Cafeteria this Wednesday for a buffet of
all things performative (legit all things). Also come perform! Sign
ups at 8:30pm sharp; show at 9pm.

(we’ve pushed everything back by a half hour in case you want to catch
the beginning of the State of the School by President Roth)

For any new souls, we limit sets to 5 minutes, just to ensure that we
can showcase as many acts as possible. Performers: you can do
ANYthing. Music, poetry, comedy, monologues, rants, ants, pants.
Someone came and did some contact juggling one time and it was sick.
Sometimes cool people with cool instruments jam afterwards.

Cost: Your beautiful presence

Got a Question for President Roth?

michael roth

Hey. Are you going to the first State of the School this Wednesday from 8-9:30 PM? Do you have a question, or multiple questions, for Pres. Michael Roth about this here university?

The Wesleyan Student Assembly asked us to help out with President Roth’s first address to the student body, which means that we’re taking your questions! During the Q&A section of the address, moderators from The Ankh, The Argus, and the WSA be asking some previously submitted questions from all of you and I’ll be liveblogging the event.

If you have any questions in real time, the WSA will be monitoring their twitter (@wsanews) for questions to pass up to the mods. (I’ll also be monitoring our twitter (@wesleying), but not that much.) Likewise, during the address, there will be paper for you to write any questions you may have. Bring your laptop or your phone or a writing utensil!

To submit your question(s), please use this Google form! If for some reason that’s not working, send it/them in to us using our tipbox form or email us at staff[at]wesleying[dot]org. Questions are due by 4 PM on Wednesday.
