Fast-A-Thon Volunteers Meeting

From Zainab Khan ’13:

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! The Fast-a-Thon is fast approaching and we are looking for volunteers to help organize the event. This is a great opportunity for you to be involved with the greater Middletown Community. Each year, students fast for the day and donate their meals and/or points to the Amazing Grace Food Pantry. If you’re interested in volunteering, you must attend one (just one) of two volunteers meetings. The first one will be held Sunday, November 4th at 1pm in Usdan 110 and the second will be held Monday, November 5th at 4:15 pm in Usdan 110. Any questions, comments, or concerns should be directed to Zainab Khan at zkahn(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

How many kids in the Experimental Music Group does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Just one. Ashlin Aronin ’13 bloops:

TOMORROW NIGHT!  The Experimental Music Group presents Gino Robair: composer, improviser, pioneering percussionist and electronic musician from the Bay Area. Robair will present a set of solo percussion and electronics, followed by an ensemble of Wesleyan students and alums who will perform a set of his improvisation-based group compositions.

Gino Robair has performed and recorded with Tom Waits, Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Nina Hagen, Terry Riley, Lou Harrison, John Butcher, Derek Bailey, Peter Kowald, Otomo Yoshihide, and the ROVA Saxophone Quartet.

Bar Night at Usdan

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.

Date: Friday, November 2
Time: 9:30pm-11:59pm
