Rocky Horror Picture Show Auditions

From Lucy Rubin ’17:

Amazing costumes?? Dance with friends? Watch an amazing(ly bad) movie? If yes, then Absent Toast, Wesleyan’s only (and sexiest) Rocky Horror Shadowcast, is where you should be! The show is a low time commitment, once a week rehearsals, and one show on the last days of classes at midnight!

Auditions? Super low key. Just show up with some attitude!

Each audition shouldn’t take that long. Come by, feel the vibe, make some friends, looking bangin in a corset. YAAAASSS!

Submit to Headspace

minds foundation logoFor all you creatives interested in the terror that is the human brain:

Submit your work to Headspace, a student run publication! Headspace examines all topics related to the mind, the brain, and behavior. This year we are looking for submissions related to the topic, “What is Consciousness?” We seek submissions of a variety of formats including prose, poetry, science writing, visual art, or anything in two dimensions.

Some ideas to get you started: How does your field interpret consciousness?, How do we understand different “kinds” of consciousness (animal consciousness, for instance)? What does it mean to transcend consciousness? How does awareness of consciousness impact your life? Students and faculty are welcome to submit work from any academic discipline.

Email your submissions with your name and class year (if applicable) to wes.headspace[at]gmail[dot]com by Friday, February 26th. Anonymous submissions are welcome. Our only guideline for submission is that it be under 1200 words.

Thanks very much for your consideration and, of course, do not hesitate to contact us for questions or comments.

Submission Deadline: Friday, February 26

Mass Incarceration Spring Break Lobby Weekend Info Session

From Caroline Monahan ’16:

This spring break, work to end mass incarceration.

Come to 41 Wyllys Room 113 for an info session on a Wesleyan lobbying trip to DC from March 12-15. On this trip led by Wes for Peace, we’ll lobby our Congress members with over 200 other college students on the Sentencing Reforms and Corrections Act of 2015 (

Come lobby with us. Tell your representatives to make the right choice about mass incarceration. Come find out more at our info session, or email cmonahan[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you can’t make it.

“We could choose to be a nation that extends care, compassion, and concern to those who are locked up and locked out or headed for prison before they are old enough to vote. We could seek for them the same opportunities we seek for our own children; we could treat them like one of “us.” We could do that. Or we can choose to be a nation that shames and blames its most vulnerable, affixes badges of dishonor upon them at young ages, and then relegates them to a permanent second-class status for life.”
