Mayor Ben Florsheim ’14, presumably still riding that high of eking out that election victory in November, is treating himself to a shiny new toy… by approving a $70,000 budget increase to the Middletown Police Department?
Not sure this is the one, friend.
Hi friendos. Today, I’m going to talk about knitting. Nobody in my life ever loved me enough to teach me how to knit, so I learned exclusively through videos like this. Now, I’m a straight-up string freak, up to the point where I have a folder of downloaded Ravelry patterns on my computer.
But here’s the secret: It’s easy. Too easy. What you need:
TL;DR: Through convoluted, nearly incomprehensible methodology, he’s probably about 6’1″. But we’re still not sure.

Another repost of a repost of a repost of Samira‘s two updates of DMZ‘s original 2012 post. Don’t worry, though, because this article is like those pine trees you’re gonna save by reducing your printing use: Evergreen.
This is part of our 2019 Unofficial Orientation Series. A quick reminder that you can check out the welcome post here and past years’ series here.
If you came to Wesleyan because of some vague, or obvious, interest in environmentalism, then you’re in luck! If you find the right people, organizations, classes, etc. then you’ll have a great support system for keeping green on campus. If you thought it was impressive that the admissions building has solar panels on top of it (mostly a ploy to get environmentalist students to apply), then you’ll have a great time getting involved with sustainability efforts at Wes.
This post is a slightly tweaked version of Fern’s 2018 post, which was preceded by articles in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and back until 2009.
Transportation away from Wesleyan can be a tricky feat for someone without a car. But should you want to someday escape the magnetic beauty of Wes or the general Middletown rest assured there are in fact options for you.
Connecticut does to some extent live up to its name. This year more than ever in fact with a new CTRail Hartford Line operating between New Haven and Springfield, MA and with future updates to the M-Link Express Route planned by Noah Kahan ’19.

Today is the last day to vote for Wesleyan’s new
Remember when the university revealed its new corporate-y “visual identity” in the fall? Remember how angry we were, students and alumni alike, not only about the quality and presumed cost of the redesign, but that the community as a whole had been left in the dark regarding the decision-making process? Remember how the outcry succeeded in causing the administration to reverse the decision (though while perhaps skirting around the larger issues at stake)?
Now is the time to use our voices. And vote. And prove to the higher-ups that we care too much about this school to let them make secret decisions about Wesleyan that will affect future generations.
