Alexis Jimenez ’19 writes in:

Join WeSlam for our first-ever non-English performance poetry event. Our focus in doing this is to create a space that celebrates language in all its forms. This is NONCOMPETITIVE, and students do not need to have experience performing or writing poetry to participate. Students do not have to be native speakers of the language they choose to perform in; they can  be majors of that language, or have studied it independently.

The sign-up list IS OPEN NOW, and closes on March 2nd at 5:00PM. If you sign up to perform, you have the choice to provide an English translation for those who do not speak in non-English languages. The translation must be in by the 2nd, as well. Email all sign-ups and submissions to weslam.wesleyan[at]gmail[dot]com

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lex: ajimenez[at]wesleyan[dot]edu or Teresa:  tnaval[at]wesleyan[dot]edu

Info Session: Learn About Serving Up Change with FoodCorps

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 11.44.29 AM

Huzzah, a short Wesleying reunion! From Syed Ali ’13 (known to Planet Internet as simply Syed):

Looking for ways to put your energy towards something meaningful? To address your community’s health in concrete ways? To address issues of food justice by getting your hands dirty?

FoodCorps service members serve a year at schools in limited resource communities to give kids food and nutrition lessons that give them the information they need to make smart choices; hands-on activities like gardening and cooking that foster their skills and pride around healthy food; and lunch trays filled with nutritious meals from local farms.

At the same time, through their service, our members are learning new skills and paving the way towards their future careers as educators, chefs, community organizers and public health advocates.

Learn more at our information session tonight! Communications Coordinator Syed Ali ’13, Connecticut Service Member Ruthie Lazenby ’10, and Connecticut fellow Chelsey Hahn will discuss and take questions on how FoodCorps can accelerate your career.

Date: TODAY, March 1st
Time: 7pm
Place: Usdan 110
