And they tried to tell you that Wesleyan didn’t have any adapted-Chinese-operas-slash-wet-t-shirt-contests. Sara Guernsey ’15 proves otherwise:
Come see a beautiful adaptation of the opera by Tang Xianzu 1598, performed in a hybrid of traditional Chinese and Western styles. There’s a pond in the stage, a tree branch hanging from the sky, clouds to sit on, and tea served at the beginning of the show.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY: 8 pm
SATURDAY: 2pm, 8 pm.
The astoundingly attractive and titillatingly talented Josh Margolin ’11 and Julian Silver ’12are back, with plenty of Wesleyan and ‘Cac references for all of us.
If you’re not caught up, peep Episodes One and Two.
The boys (chicks?) promise a new episode every Monday, so if you’re looking for a nice way to spend those awkward four minutes between when dinner ends and The Voice starts, you’ve found it. Subscribe to their page on YouTube here.
Wesleyan Diversity Education Facilitators (WesDEFs) are excited to launch a weekly series of workshops on facilitation skills! Come to our info-session this week. Oreos (and maybe other snacks …) will be provided.
Use facilitation skills in your student groups, classroom discussions, or interpersonal interactions! Potential topics that will be covered are: establishing community guidelines, active listening and questioning, workshop design, and social justice dialogues. We are also seeking suggestions from other students.
I’m not posting this because I’ve had a crush on Julian Silver ’12 since the first time I saw him freshman year. Or because he’s witty, cute, talented, and manly in a sensitive kind of way… Where was I? The latest from him and Josh Margolin ’11:
March 3rd – 8th is the PHA’s Perceptions of Beauty week! Our aim is to reclaim the meaning of beauty from the ideals portrayed by the media in our society to a more universal perception of beauty that emphasizes both internal and external qualities. Come check out our Beauty Wall in Usdan and keep your eyes peeled for post-it notes around campus!
This week, we challenge you to compliment five people each day.
Here are some compliments we have said:
You look awesome…
I love your smile…
You always make really insightful comments in class…
I love that I can rely on you…
Your outfit is super cute today…
You inspire me to stand up for what I believe in…
…and that’s what makes you beautiful!
