From Erica Arensman ’17:
Do you like to argue? Do you love watching Legally Blonde but think all the courtroom scenes are terribly unrealistic? Are you interested in putting on a costume and pretending to be a policeman with a Russian accent?
If any of those things apply to you, Wes Mock Trial wants YOU to come to our info session this Friday at 6pm. We’ll be answering any questions you have about the team, and you’ll be able to learn about try-outs and sign up for a time slot.

Disclaimer: While the tips introduced in this post can be applied universally, you should remember that your odds of getting into a class depends primarily not on your effort, but on the professor and ze’s policy and how popular the class is. It is pretty much impossible to convince a professor of an extremely popular class who simply won’t go over the limit to accept you into hir class, even if you do everything right. But, trying can’t hurt, right?
Today’s installment of the Unofficial Orientation Series is mainly about the devil that is known as Drop/Add. If you don’t know what that is, the folks at Registrar provided this overview. During this period, students are able to add or drop pretty much any class to their schedule, regardless of the limits posed by pre-reg, such as class year distribution. I also highly recommend you check out this FAQ, also kindly prepared by the office of Registrar, as a way to get the basics down before proceeding. This post will not be doing much explaining of Drop/Add itself. It will, however, try to warn you, frosh, about the reality of this brutal race and offer some insights (read: randomly gathered knowledge that may have been the results of embarrassing behaviors of the author herself).

Sarah Marmon ’14 invites you to have some midnight fun!
Sponsored by the Adelphic Educational Fund!
We would like, if we may, to take you on a strange journey- a journey through the craziest night in the lives of the newly engaged Brad and Janet. After a flat tire halts their trip to see an old science teacher, the couple stumbles upon Dr. Frank-n-Furter’s castle, filled with servants, groupies, party guests, and his very own live experiment. Come see the campiest, sexiest horror parody movie this side of Denton! Absent Toast, Wesleyan’s very own Rocky Horror Picture Show shadowcast performs the midnight cult classic right in front of the screen, with full audience partici…pation.

Alex Donesky ’15 sends the invitation!
Did this past weekend’s festivities leave you exhausted, agnostic and a lil bit nauseous… and yet eager for more triptastic spiritual journeys? This Thursday night you can relive all of those highs and none of those lows all while resting your still weary body in the cozy seats of Memorial Chapel. Alum’s Ishmael and their friends Slim Charles will be kickin’ things off with some math-rock insanity. And then Dawn of Midi will proceed to blow your mind and help you piece everything back together.
Come check it out.

From strange hybrid “Lovebirds” to disembodied mouths and monumental bubblegum, the subjects of Assistant Professor of Art Julia Randall’s drawings seduce the viewer. The exhibition “Oral Fixations” is a ten-year retrospective of the meticulous, hyperrealist drawings by Ms. Randall. As the artist explains, she sees the mouth as “the threshold of the id,” and her works are “simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive.” The exhibition title nods towards Sigmund Freud’s theory of oral-stage fixation, but Ms. Randall’s often monumental drawings go beyond psychoanalysis, presenting surreal, sensual, even visceral images, while surprising with a sense of humor.
