Come to the European Society’s first meet and greet this Thursday 7 pm
at International House (151 Church St, next to the Bayit!). The
European Society is a newly founded group trying to create a European
student community at Wes. If you are an international or exchange
student from Europe, grew up in Europe, love Europe, studied/will
study abroad in Europe, then this event is for you. There will be
cheese, grape juice, great conversation and great people.
Hope to see you there!
Date: Thursday, Feb. 20th Time: 7PM Place: International House
Ever seen Rocky Horror at Wesleyan and said to yourself “damn, I could
do that”? Well, now you can! Absent Toast (the student group that runs
Rocky Horror Picture Show here at Wes) is having an information
session to let you know about all the sexy opportunities!
We have several behind the scenes positions available, as well as
Transylvanian parts. (That’s the part with lingerie and fishnets.)
Everyone who comes to the info session and would like a part will be
able to join the cast.
An exciting event hosted by the Wesleyan Center for Prison education:
Is it possible to become a better mother while serving time in a maximum security prison?
Mothers of Bedford, a feature length documentary, follows five women incarcerated in the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility and looks at their lives through the lens of motherhood. The film explores the effects of a long-term prison sentence on the mother-child relationship. Mothers of Bedford examines the struggles and joys these five women face as prisoners and mothers. It shows the normal frustrations of parenting as well as the surreal experiences of a child’s first birthday party inside prison, the cell that child lives in with her mother, and the biggest celebration of the year, Mother’s Day in prison!
Graphic novelist Julia Werts will be hosting a Q&A at the Shapiro Center tomorrow! More from Izzy Rode ’14:
