In case you didn’t notice (or were too drunk/stoned/tired to care), it’s finals week. As you might expect, the folks of Wesleying are a band of procrastinating miscreants, and thus, we are continuing Operation LOL (Liveblog Olin) for a third time. You can find the other two parts here and here.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the memes.
From the bodacious, vivacious, and loquacious Denise Francisco ’16:
Are you ready to:
> smack that strawberry bubblegum?
> hop up on that pusher love?
> be pressed up in black and white?
> dance, don’t hold the wall?
> cruise around, land and make love on the moon?
> let the groove get in right there right there?
It’s that time of year to get your sexy groove juices flowing. Join us on Saturday night May 4th, for an all new SEXTACY EXPERIENCE! Brought to you by X-TACY the Collective!
Dance Party starts at 10pm | Show starts at 11 pm. $1 BEFORE 11pm! $2 after! Get there early so you don’t miss what is going to be a hot and Sextacy Experience.
Date: Tomorrow, May 4th
Place: WestCo Cafe
Cost: $1 before 11pm, $2 after 11pm
Facebook: Twerk it, girl
From the extremely articulate Coz Deicke ’15:
The ActorsFirst Project is an experimental theater production in which the actors are chosen first, and then the script is written, inspired by the actors. Throughout the process, the script has been workshopped, rewritten, and transformed into the play About Face.
About Face centers around a four characters managing their turbulent relationships in a harsh Virginian winter.
The show is sponsored by Second Stage and is not ticketed. Read after the jump to see when performances are (spoiler later: there’s one tonight at 8pm and two tomorrow at 2pm and 8pm in the Downey House Lounge). BAM.
Kate “On Top of Her Game/Leading the Pack/Salty” Cullen ’16 is hosting the photography show to end all photography shows, and you should totes go:
This year I’ve been working on a photography project for the College of the Environment focused on natural gas usage at Wesleyan and in the Northeast area. I have traveled around PA and CT taking pictures of the different steps that make up our usage of natural gas energy.
Here’s a preview! Interested?
Exhibit is up in Zelnick Pavilion from April 19th-25th.
Artist’s Talk is Friday April 19th at 6:30pm where I’ll explain more about the project while you much on some complementary NoRA’s cupcakes and homemade cookies.
Date: Tomorrow, April 19th
Place: Zelnick Pavilion
Katya Sapozhnina ’16 wants you to join the best business/entrepreneurship society EVER:

We already entered a competition and have some projects we are working on. For example, we have some great ideas for iPhone apps.

Plans for April 12: “Getting really drunk and then going to see Spring Breakers.“
To get this out of the way: yes, I don’t have any science students in this lovely Part 2; I do, however, have a Classics major (and I guess those are more rare?). But exciting news: we will definitely probably most likely kinda sorta have some science kiddies in our next post (Science people, OPEN YOUR CARRELS TO US. WHERE DO YOU LIVE?!?!).
Read after the jump to see more THESISCRAZY seniors. For previous THESISCRAZY installments, click here. To see our very nice 2013 THESISCRAZY Part 1, check it out here.
#dearwesleyan2017 Start a band, don’t forget to shower.
Congrats to all the prefrosh currently reading this post! YAY. YOU GOT IN. WOOOOO.
In other Wesleyan admissions decision news:
- Wesleyan’s College Confidential page is blowing up as students try to pinpoint what could have possibly gone wrong/gone right/gone eh by writing up and publishing their entire high school résumés online.
- Twitter goes crazy.
- WesAdmits 2017 is lukewarm at best. No crazy posts asking about the circus count at Wesleyan, no “Convince me to choose Wesleyan over Brown” assholes, and no ridiculous amounts of upperclassmen trolling. Sigh. PREFROSH, MAKE IT BETTER.
See lots of prefrosh being all prefrosh-y (plus a special appearance by the Usdan Cooks) after the jump.
