Mask-Making Mardi Gras Madness

mardi gras maskZoë Thrasher ’16 writes in with an opportunity for artsy gluttony:

Mardi Gras is a cool occasion to meet some swell and happening people and collectively make masks (zomg – GLITTER) and enjoy the finer things in life, like food. Stop by Alpha Delt this Tuesday at 7-9 and make a neat mask (to show off your ultra artsy side), eat some donuts and chips and soda (because gluttony is a fun combo with mask-making), and revel in the fun atmosphere of a house full of other artsyn gluttons. Happy Mardi Gras! And we hope to see you there! ^_^

Date: Tuesday, February 9
Time: 7-9PM
Place: Alpha Delt

Rho Ep Information Session

rho epFrom Rho Ep:

Do you identify as female? Are you curious about Greek life? Do you want to meet other women at Wesleyan? Then you should consider rushing Rho Epsilon Pi, Wesleyan’s only sorority.

We’ll have two information sessions to let you know what we’re all about before the formal rush process begins. So come on by to 41 Wyllys, Room 112 to chat with us and determine whether you might be interested! All grade levels are welcome!

We’ll host info sessions on Tuesday, February 9th @ 8:15pm & Wednesday, February 10th @ 7:30pm. We will be covering the history of Rho Ep, the rush process, how we are trying to redefine sorority, and more! If you are at all interested in Rho Ep and what we do, this is the best way to find out.

If you can’t make it to either meeting or have questions about the sorority or rush process, please send a message to rhoeprush[at]gmail[dot]com.

Help us shape our sorority into an organization that our entire student body can take pride in at Wesleyan. Rho Epsilon Pi is open to any Wesleyan student who identifies as female.

Sessions: Tuesday, February 9th at 8:15PM and Wednesday, February 10th at 7:30PM
Place: 41 Wyllys room 112

Wesleyan Doula Project Info Sessions

doulaproject2Hannah Sokoloff-Rubin, Jesalyn Ortiz, and Alexandra Stovicek write in:

Passionate about reproductive health? Interested in working as a patient advocate in local abortion clinics? Want to be involved in the only college-based doula project in the country?

Apply to be trained as an abortion doula with the Wesleyan Doula Project!

For security reasons, people who get abortions aren’t allowed to bring anyone with them for support during or after their procedures.  Our project trains Wes students to offer that missing support – as doulas, we volunteer weekly at local abortion clinics to provide patients with emotional and physical support and advocacy during their procedures and recovery.

We will be holding our annual training on April 2-3! If you are interested in applying, you must attend ONE of our two info sessions and complete an application and interview process.  More details (and snacks!) at the info sessions.

INFO SESSION 1: Monday, February 8 from 7-8 PM in 41 Wyllys Room 113

INFO SESSION 2: Wednesday, February 10 from 7-8 in PAC 104
