Open Mic at 200 Church

Come share your creative work — writing, music, art, anything — at 200 Church. Cookies will be provided (probably). Absolutely no experience is required.

This is a great chance to show off anything from that song you’ve been composing in the shower or that short story you’ve been writing on the back of Usdan napkins in a relaxed, non-competitive environment with current and soon-to-be-your friends.

Sign up by being at 200 Church at seven and asking one of the hosts to put you down to perform. Late signups are accepted throughout the open mic.

When: Tuesday, Feb. 5th
Time: 7 PM
Place: 200 Church
Why: Cookies, performances, and people.
Bring: Yourself and everyone you know.

WesFRESH Survey

Veggie+TalesBecca Wilton ’15 wants to make sure you don’t pull a “Groundhog Day” with this survey, but would very much like to hear your opinion:

DO NOT TAKE THIS SURVEY MORE THAN ONCE.

This survey is part of WesFRESH’s ongoing food activism work on campus. Its intention is to give us an understanding of what kind of changes students would like to see in their dining experience so that we can tailor our work to you!

Follow this link to our live form.

Last spring, Wesleyan signed the Real Food Campus Commitment, pledging to improve campus dining and spend at least 20 percent of Wesleyan’s dining budget on “Real Food” by 2020. “Real Food” is defined by the Real Food Challenge as food in one or more of the following categories: local/community-based; ecologically sound; fair for workers; humane for animals.

If you would like to get involved, we’d love to have you! Shoot us an e-mail.

Deadline: February 6th

Survey: Classical Musicians and Improvisation

bachbachbach

Nathan Shane ’13 wants to pick your brain about music:

If you have learned classical music at some point in your life, or you are learning it now, then please take this survey! By conducting this survey, I hope to gather information for my undergraduate thesis, the topic of which is improvisation in classical music education. I will ask you questions about your music education, music in your life today, and your thoughts on improvisation. If you have 30 minutes, I would appreciate your participation a lot!

Here’s the link to the survey.

Deadline: February 28
