Vote Rowan S ’11 for SBC

Rowan S ’11 writes…


Hey there, Wesleyan: VOTE FOR ROWAN!

WSA elections are open and you should all head over to the voting website.

Here’s why you should vote for me:

Chesapeake Energy Corporation.
General Electric.
One clusterfuck of an economy.

Sum them up and you get the Wall Street mess that helped me double my bank account in less than one year. My point(besides shameless self call)? I know how to allocate funds to make the best of any situation.

As a member of Shakti—the group that plans Samsara—I have direct experience with the SBC funding process. In fact, I’ve already approached the WSA with ideas to help fund student groups. I believe we need to make it easier for student groups to access allocated funds after they have met with the SBC. Elect me to the SBC and I will not only improve the funding process but also improve access to allocated funds!

I am going to work the numbers so hard your student group will be drowning in golden SBC splooge! I will bring results!

Lecture – Finding Pete: Rediscovering the Brother I Lost in Vietnam

John Gallagher ’12 writes in to let us know about an interesting lecture that will be happening tonight:

findingpetePeter Morse Hunting ’63 was the first Wesleyan graduate killed in the Vietnam War. He and his youngest sister Jill were products of a family that valued service. At Wesleyan, Pete found the intellectual framework for his values and the preparation for his next step in life. As a civilian volunteer in Vietnam he analyzed the U.S. military presence as it shifted from advisory role to combat force and the shifting currents of attitudes among Vietnamese. Pete’s life inspired Jill to work for peace, but first she had to come to terms with his death. Join her as she discusses her quest to explore the mystery of Pete’s death and how it resulted in a book 44 years later.

Porn and Milkshakes @ ADP

MilkshakeLadyDavid ’11 has a creative writeup to tell you about this semester’s Porn and Milkshakes at Alpha Delt:

There have been many great combinations throughout the years: peanut butter and jelly, coffee and cream, jalapeno cheddar combos and zesty salsa tortilla combos. But one delicious combination that has probably never crossed your palette is pornography and milkshakes. Yes, the creamy, frothy, deliciously sweet treat shared by young steadies after a sock-hop, and milkshakes, which are also pretty yummy. So come one, come all, come watch people come extravagantly excessive amounts (on the screen), at Porn and Milkshakes, this Wednesday, at Alpha Delta Phi.

What: Porn and Milkshakes
Where: Alpha Delt
When: Wednesday from 8-10(ish)
