From Alex Donesky ’15:
Apparently prefrosh are here so put away those unsightly cancer sticks and puff on a blu or a V2. You’ll be showing off Wesleyan’s knack for progress and saving your lungs for this weekend.
Time: 8-9 p.m.
Place: Nics Lounge
From Fred Ayres ’17:
As part of homelessness awareness month, ResLife is collecting canned goods in all residential buildings. Look out for the collection boxes!
The ResLife area that donates the most food will win a party with a special prize to be revealed later. There will be regular email updates with which area is winning.
NOTE: There will be no collection boxes for program houses and woodframes. Place all canned goods outside of your house on Saturday and they will be picked up on Sunday morning.
Date: All of April
Place: Collection boxes in all residential buildings
“Concerts on Foss: now more than ever!”
Word gets out pretty easily, so I’m basically just confirming what many of you already know. Here’s the Spring Fling 2014 Line-up, courtesy of Spring Fling Committee:
CHANCE THE RAPPER
This year’s lineup still follows the loosely defined Spring Fling template of “rap act, indie-ish buzz band, raucous opening act” of the past few years, allowing us to reuse this sentence again and again. Some quick overviews and music from the artists are after the jump.
Kennedy Odede ’12, everyone’s favorite rapper and alum, is running for a Board of Trustees position. Current seniors can vote, and he’d like to get the word out! The election is from April 7-May 25. From Odede:
I am missing Wes! In fact, I miss it so much I am running for alumni elected trustee.
I believe so much in Wes, and want to give back somehow. I’d appreciate everyone knowing to vote!
The JouleBug sustainability contest starts tomorrow! If you’re a team leader, make sure you have members participating on your team! People can join your team until April 27th (but you can get a head start by racking points up early). Here’s how:
1. Once the app is downloaded, go to Profile
2. From Profile, select Settings (the gear icon)
3. Select Communities, Wesleyan Teams*
4. Select your Team name from the list of available Teams
Points will accumulate for your Team from April 14-27. You can find some additional information here.
Every dollar saved on energy is a dollar added to financial aid! Good luck and get Buzzing!
From Luciana Contreras ’16:
Join us on Foss this Sunday (4/13) from 1-3 PM to support Relay For Life!! Rho Epsilon Pi will be selling temporary tattoos and popsicle for 25 cents. See you there!
Time: 1-3 p.m.
Cost: 25 cents
From Eric Lopez ’15 and the rest of the Spring Fling Committee, here’s an announcement for the announcement of Spring Fling lineup. It’s even more cryptic than last year’s Spring Flinger’s video.
The full lineup will be announced very soon! In the meantime, apply to play at Battle of the Bands.
After a successful fall contest, Wesleyan is holding another campus-wide energy saving contest using the mobile app, JouleBug! If you participate, you’ll help save energy AND money for financial aid (and maybe win some additional cool prizes).
JouleBug is easy to use and basically lets you track the number of sustainable actions you take per day; it’s kind of like the FourSquare app, but for sustainability. Each team at Wesleyan competes against each other to see who can rack up the most sustainability points throughout the contest, from April 14-27.
The awesome thing about the contest is that Michael Roth has pledged that any residential energy savings will be directly donated to financial aid, so there are actually tangible rewards!
Here are the steps for participating in the JouleBug contest:
1) Create your team. All you have to do is click on this link, pick a team name, and put in your contact information. Leaders have until April 11th, 4 pm to register their team.
