Join Wesleying, Wesleyan’s least absorbent campus publication!
Wesleying has been going strong for ten whole years. We were founded in 2006 by Holly and ishuku just as the internet was becoming more of a thing, and they wanted to tell everyone where the parties were, and ask the hard, irreverent questions that no one too close to the administration wanted to ask.
The blog has taken on a lot of different forms and styles since it was created in 2006, and that’s what keeps it interesting for me. Wesleying is a platform for literally anything that you want to write about. We’ve also been financially and ideologically and just generally independent from the institution since we were founded in 2006, and we’re planning on keeping it that way. And in order to keep going strong, we need YOU.
If you’re a Wes student and can write sentences, we want you. If you feel like your voice isn’t heard on campus, we want to change that. This goes double if you’re queer, trans/nonbinary, a student of color, first gen, low income, or an international student. We want to put up with asshole commenters who will try to shut you down. If you have even a fraction of enough time to have opinions about what happens on our campus, or on the Internet, or in the even-vaguely-Wes-related rest of the world, share them with us and our readers.
Our first recruitment meeting is this Sunday from 4-5 PM in Booger-Boo Hall, room 112. Please come if you are interested in blogging about things and putting them on this website. I’ll be giving what will probably be a very awkward presentation about what Wesleying has been, is, and could/should be. If you want to join but can’t make it to this meeting, please (please!) email editors[at]wesleying[dot]org with the subject line “Recruitment” and tell us about yourself and why you want to join Wesleying.
Date: Sunday, September 18
Time: 4-5 PM
Place: The Artist Formerly Known As 41 Wyllys (Boger Hall), room 112
Why: Our Blog Could Be Your Life
We’re also going to be sitting at the WSA student group fair today looking incredibly antisocial, but this is just our default face, so please come talk to us! We can answer any specific or general questions about what we do and what it’s like to do what we do. But, we’ll have a more prepared recruitment pitch when we’re together again, or for the first time.
