Are You Wesleying? Come Find Out!

we're more welcoming than we look, we promise.

we’re more welcoming than we look, we promise.

Last Sunday, I’m sure you went to the student groups fair absolutely yearning to join Wesleying, a “campus” “life” “blog.” Maybe you were put off by the experimental wind/brass (does it count as brass when it’s a multicolored plastic trumpet?) duo sharing the Fayerweather stairwell alcove with us. Maybe you got there after I’d decided I’ve been at Wesleyan long enough to warrant giving up on certain kinds of experimentation and had moved upstairs to a corner of a table that was meant for Planned Parenthood. (They’d left already.) Maybe you were still going to talk to us but were discouraged by our earbud-wearing and frowning over homework, or you saw Maya‘s book about hating positive thinking. Maybe you saw me inelegantly eating a chickpea sandwich from downstairs Usdan and are reconsidering this whole joining-a-blog-run-by-weirdos thing.

Don’t reconsider! I’m here to apologize for the shit job we did at mid-year recruitment–it’s February, everything sucks right now–and say that there’s another chance! (There are actually infinite chances–we take new people throughout the school year.)

If you’d like to become a part of this, my personal favorite “weird, irreverent, and colorful media space,” come to our next meeting, this Sunday, February 14 at 2PM in 41 Wyllys [insert booger joke here] room 112. We’ll probably bitch about commercialized holidays and also ~love~. Maybe I’ll get inspired and bring y’all pretzels.

If you can’t make it to this meeting but would like to be involved in some way, email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org with the subject line “Recruitment” and tell us about yourself. Check after the jump for some more info about Wesleying from old recruitment posts.

East Meets Wes

From Becky Eder ’18:

Do you wanna hear some awesome music sung by some awesome people? Well you’re in luck! Come see East Meets Wes, a musical revue with two guys singing some of their favorite songs in the musical theater. It’ll be a lot of fun. There will be songs from Wicked, Avenue Q, Hamilton, and If/Then just to name a few.

Performances are in the ’92 Theater at:

No need to buy tickets in advance, just show up!

“Neo Tokyo is about to explode…” When an insidious energy source grants psychic powers to a lowly member of a biker gang, he’s promptly made subject to army experiments.
