Wesleyan Political Union Interest Meeting

political-union-debate-cartoonTess Vartanian ’20 writes in:

The Wesleyan Political Union is a new group on campus dedicated solely to political discourse. While Wesleyan is certainly a very politically active campus, we felt that a space for true bipartisan discourse was sorely lacking. We’re here to create a space for students to discuss ideas and philosophies through parliamentary style debate. If you’re interested, come to our interest meeting to learn more about what we do. Whether you are unsure where you stand politically, want to learn more about current events, or just want to hear an opposing opinion, this is the club for you!

Date: Thursday, October 27
Time: 8:30-9 PM
Place: Fisk 302

An evening of musical colonialism achieved by means of forgery, ruthless annexation, and works of great American serialists. Presentation will include a fair amount of innocence in admiration of sound with its various forms and shapes. (Elements of discourtesy for tradition may occur.) Performance will feature Wesleyan students and distinguished composer Robert Morris.
