We’ll be selling guest and individual passes for both Outing Day and Semi-Formal this Sunday night ONLY (May 12th) in the Olin Lobby from 8-9pm. Passes will be $40 each (cash only and bring exact change or donate to senior gift), and they are on a first come, first serve basis. Because these last two events are dry, guests under 21 years of age will be allowed.
Its that time of year again! Spring is here- blossoms are flowering, trees are planting, and there’s an acapella show like every other day. So here’s another! Hurrah!
At 9:00pm Sunday, in the most wondrous of Memorial Chapels, the Wesleyan Spirits will sing a whole lot of songs for you and your beloved. Songs include but are not limited to: Ben Jacobs’ Second Song, that song from the Empire Strikes Back, Love is Creed by Passion Pit, and some songs from when we were littler.
Hope to see you there :)
Date: Sunday, May 12 Time: 9-10 p.m. Place: Memorial Chapel Cost: Free
Just like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Solo (nee Organa) bravely fought the Empire, so did Wesflix fight the power of those opposed to promiscuous filmmaking.
A small collective of sophomores have banded together to present a collection of pieces done solely out of love for the craft and dedication to the arts. Each work is a student production from start to finish, the vision of each artist in its purest form.
You could treat this as your pre-game to the Digital Thesis Film Screening and Film Ball in your filmy weekend. We wouldn’t be offended.
Last year 300-400 weskids came out one fateful night to dance in a silent rave. It was massive. So we’re going to do it again, for no other reason but to celebrate the end of the year and enjoy a huge dance party.
The concept of a silent rave is fairly simple. One only needs a pair of headphones and an mp3 player of sorts. Tonight we will publicly post a playlist based on students’ suggestions (through dropbox or other platforms) that anyone can download for free. Then on Friday May 10th, we will congregate on the grassy steps behind Olin and press play together at 11:15pm sharp (come at 11 if you want to get your hands on some glowsticks, we have 900 for the taking). The playlist will be one file so if you get out of synch or arrive late, 11:15 is the official start time and you can play the file at whatever minute we are on. It sounds a little funky, but it enables us to have a giant dance party outside that won’t attract noise complaints–and we can move around campus. So break out your tutus, capes, onesies, beads, and crazy outfits ((((KEEP WES WEIRD))))
It’s that time of year again: trees are blossoming, baseball players are donning their tight pants, bros are barbecuing on Foss, and Collective Motion is hosting its annual spring show! In honor of Earth Day, we will be getting our hands (and feet, and shins) dirty as we take the performance outside and onto the CFA green.
For those of you who don’t know, Collective Motion is a contemporary dance group that emphasizes original choreography, improv, and creative movement of all sorts. Come see us bring our mission to life!
Date: Sunday, April 21 Time: 2:30-3:30 p.m. Place: CFA green Cost: FREE FB event.
Precision Troupe is BACK, coming at you with our annual spring performance!
Party starts at 10pm. Performance starts at 11:30pm sharp!

FYI: Precision Dance Company is one of Wesleyan’s oldest dance companies and consists of two counterparts: contemporary-based Ensemble and hip-hop-based Troupe. Ensemble puts on a show every spring in the ’92 Theater and Troupe performs once per semester in a party setting.
We’re #1. :)

TheFriends of the Wesleyan Library invite you to view a collection about activist book artists:
During the open house, the work of activist book artists will be available for browsing in the Davison Rare Book Room. Among the artists’ books on display will be work connected to the contemporary movements featured in the Davison Art Center exhibition, Artists Take Action (which includes three portfolios from SC&A), as well as related causes. Boom!: a Summary of the Paper Landmine Print Project by John Risseeuw (Tempe, AZ: Cabbagehead Press, c2011) is printed on paper made by the artist from the clothing of landmine victims. Julie Chen’s Memento (Berkeley, CA: Flying Fish Press, c2012), a tiny book in a locket, is described by the artist as evoking “the fragility of the book and the power of reading.” Memento is part of the The Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition, which commemorates and laments the bombing of a street of booksellers in Baghdad on March 5, 2007. Occupy Your Wallet by Emily Artinian (Wilmington, DE, 2012), is a collection of images from the Occupy movement, each presented in credit card form.
No registration required; for information contact SC&A at (860) 685-3864 or sca[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.
Date: Wednesday, April 17 Time: 4:15-6 p.m. Place: Davison Rare Book Room inside Olin’s Special Collections & Archives
As people wake up and open their email from Public Safety alerting them to the attempted sexual assault that took place last night, I would like to reach out to the campus community and invite anyone who feels affected or upset to Womanist House this afternoon. We’ll have tea and snacks and will strive to be a space space for anyone who needs it. Please feel free to drop by at 44 Brainerd Ave (perpendicular to Lawn, parallel to Pine and Home) anytime from 3-5pm today.
We would like to make sure that everyone on this campus can find a safe space and a support group as we reflect on this traumatic event. Our thoughts and support goes out to the survivor.
If you would like to contact me directly, my email is lackman[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.
