Come hear about student forum ENG420: DIGITAL JOURNALISM, a semester-long course where we will focus on producing online content and developing our portfolio. This writing-intensive seminar will introduce students to a variety of forms, from the interview, to the profile, to data-based storytelling. We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.
Sophia Jennings ’16 and Ben Romero ’16will be leading the student forum.

Are you an international student? Are you facing difficulties in adapting to classes and social life at WES? Do you feel that your cultural norms are different from those in the US? Do you believe that there are many things you just don’t get here? Do you feel homesick? Do you want a group of people similar to you to talk to?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us in our New Mental Health Support Group, specifically focused on International Students. The group will be facilitated by trained students who will also be active participants in the discussion. We will be having weekly friendly conversations about issues that concern us, relative to our transition from other cultures into a US college campus. You are not the only one out there facing “culture shock” so come share your experiences and thoughts!

It’s Bar Night at Usdan. It’s BAR NIGHT at USDAN. A headline out of my dreams:
A full range of mocktails and sodas will be served with labeled ingredients.
We will provide a range of different activities such as Wii, trivia competition, water pong, darts, karaoke, pool, foosball, and other
games. Following the bar night theme, we will be serving fries, onion rings and chicken fingers.
While participating in this fun filled event, students can enjoy delicious drinks and great entertainment with friends, without
worrying about having a terrible hangover the next day. This will also be a scent and strobe-light free event.

Stop by the Zelnick Pavilion and check out the Environmental Justice photography show.
Environmental Justice (EJ) investigates the inequitable environmental burdens borne by minorities, women, the impoverished, and residents of developing nations. Specifically, EJ explores how environmental degradation disproportionately affects the most disadvantaged and disenfranchised members of our planet.
The Photography, by Micah Feiring’11, has an entirely local focus. All pictures document areas within Middletown or the greater Middlesex area. Areas of interest include Wesleyan’s own facilities and a nearby CRRA recycling plant.
If you’re going home to New York this weekend, or if you’re looking for a way to get off campus before Senior Week, go check out Wesleyan’s own reggae/dub/funk/soul band Buru Style. They’ll be backing former Soulive singer Toussaint Liberator at the famous Blue Note jazz club.
Buru Style has really taken flight this year and this is just more proof: if you’re not aware of the Blue Note – well, it’s kind of a big deal.
Place: Blue Note, Greenwich Village, 131 W 3rd St. (between Macdougal and 6th) Time: Friday, 12-2 AM Cost: $8
