WE’RE GETTING VACCINATED

Let it be known that at approximately 4:21 PM on March 31st, 2021, the entire student body of Wesleyan University could be heard giving a collective sigh of relief.

Why, you may ask? Well I am pleased to announce (drum roll please)…

They’re vaccinating all on-campus students.

It’s just a quick trip to Wesportal and a click on the bright red “Schedule COVID-19 Vaccination” at the top of your screen. From there fill out the form and presto, you’re good to go! Now all you have to do is wait in agony for the next 24 days, 16 hours, and 12 minutes!

But hey, who’s counting?

So hop to it, and happy vaccinating my friends!

Ranking The Ways I’ve Had to Make Friends as a First-Year During COVID-19

Wesleyan, Chinese Social Science Group Enter Into Scholarly Partnership | News @ Wesleyan

Okay, here’s the deal. We all know that the only sure-fire way to make friends— that is, bonding at a party whilst drunk — is currently, shall we say, an unavailable option to the first-year class. In light of this unfortunate development, the Wesleyan Class of ’24 (myself included) has been forced to get a little creative. Some of these endeavors have been entirely successful! Others have…not gotten the desired result. So, if you’re one of the people out there (honestly, even if you’re not a first-year! Transfers! Lonely upperclassmen! What have you!) and you’re not entirely sure how to navigate the whole I-don’t-want-to-go-insane-alone-in-quarantine situation, look no further! I can help you out with all your innovative friend-making needs; the tried-and-true methods as well as the tried-and-epically-failed ones.
