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 ’16 will be leading the student forum.
Date: Monday, January 25

From Elizabeth Arslanoglou ’16:
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!
Date: February 23-May 11

Evan Carmi ’13 and Julian Applebaum ’13 want to let you know about the Senior Week Hackathon:
What would you build if you only had 36 hours?
Better course registration? No problem. Tracking down alums? Done. Reliving your campus years with music? Get your smartphone out. On Saturday, May 18th, 3 teams of Wesleyan students will go head-to-head to build the best Wes-themed web app. Apps will be judged by a team of all-star Wesleyan Computer Science alumni and a community vote on campus. The better the app scores, the more awesome the prize. Are you game?
Check out the website for more information. Five different companies are sponsoring the event with prizes. If you’re interested in joining last minute send an email to ecarmi@wes or japplebaum@wes.
