Evan Carmi ’13 and Julian Applebaum ’13 want to let you know about the Senior Week Hackathon:
What would you build if you only had 36 hours?
Better course registration? No problem. Tracking down alums? Done. Reliving your campus years with music? Get your smartphone out. On Saturday, May 18th, 3 teams of Wesleyan students will go head-to-head to build the best Wes-themed web app. Apps will be judged by a team of all-star Wesleyan Computer Science alumni and a community vote on campus. The better the app scores, the more awesome the prize. Are you game?
Check out the website for more information. Five different companies are sponsoring the event with prizes. If you’re interested in joining last minute send an email to ecarmi@wes or japplebaum@wes.

Scream your lungs out on the Olin Steps tonight:
‘Tis the season to scream! Some people scream over holiday shopping. Others scream about a pending apocalypse.
But here at Wesleyan, we scream about the monsoon of papers with pending due dates and exams that are scheduled within the next few days. The first ones are tomorrow, so you know what that means…
It’s time to scream your lungs out! Never mind quiet hours, we’re too stressed for that. Let’s engage in one more community gathering — the only chance for community-based stress relief this semester.
At midnight, come out of your study bunkers at Olin, SciLi, wherever you are. You know what to do!
Date: Tonight (technically tomorrow morning)
Time: Gather at 11:55, scream at midnight
Place: Olin steps (or anywhere else on campus)

Ford Fellow Emma Mohney ’12 writes in with a pleasant finals diversion this evening:
Please join us for a reading of creative nonfiction and poetry by students in Teagle Fellow Kate Thorpe’s course, Creative Criticism and Inquiry: Writing Documentary Nonfiction and Poetry. Each student in the class chose an archival collection from the holdings of Special Collections & Archives and wrote a creative piece inspired by the collection. The results are wonderful examples of thinking outside the box of traditional archival research. The collections chosen range from Civil War letters to the Hewlett Diversity Archive. A selection of the archival materials will be on display at the reading.
For more information about the program, contact Kate at kthorpe(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
Date: Monday, May 13
Time: 5-7 pm
Place: Develin Room, Olin Library
