Mysterious Sock Infestation in Butt A

sockIf you’ve been in Butt A in the past few weeks, you may have noticed that the number of socks appearing outside their normal habitat have increased alarmingly. Instead of being located in drawers, on dorm room floors, and on feet, these rogue socks are found strewn about the laundry room, the staircases, the hallways, and even outside the building.

I assure you, you are not alone in your perplexity and concern. For weeks now, there have been many mumbled acknowledgments of the truants. Be wary, a friend’s good-humored confusion about a misplaced sock may be reason for suspicion. As more and more socks escape their habitual environments and spread themselves (seemingly at random, yet also covering most exit and entrance points in the dorm), students’ passive observation slowly leads to greater concern.

Breaking the Silence, a talk hosted by J Street U

Post submitted by Emily Greenspan ’16:

Come join J Street U at Wesleyan for a talk with Avner Gvaryahu, a
representative from Breaking the Silence, for a presentation about
what the organization does and the reality of life under Israeli
occupation. Discussion will follow.

Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have
served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada
and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the
reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories. They endeavor to
stimulate public debate about the price paid for a reality in which
young soldiers face a civilian population on a daily basis, and are
engaged in the control of that population’s everyday life.

Date: Sunday, October 13
Time: 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Location: PAC 001
