LOAM magazine, an environmental arts magazine started by Kate Weiner ’15 and Nicole Stanton ’15, is back! We are looking for photographs, artwork, essays, poems, and thoughts that in some way explore our relationship with the earth. We’re hoping to get a jump on submissions for Fall 2016, so email your work to loam(at)wesleyan(dot)edu. We can’t wait to see what you send us!
Also, check out Kate and Nicole’s website to see all the beautiful work they’re doing as they expand LOAM to the wider world. We are so excited to collaborate and take their project forward at Wesleyan.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us! ( mguth(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and hwilton(at)wesleyan(dot)edu )
Do you like music festivals but can’t afford Coachella (or aren’t down with its culturally appropriative dress tendencies)? You’re in luck: Wesleyan’s student-run music festival is coming up!
While the upcoming semester may seem too distant to think about, this is an important time to hear different student voices as to how the MASH can continue to improve as an inclusive, safe, and fun musical experience for everyone.
Please fill out this quick survey about your past experiences, conceptions and opinions about the MASH and how it can be strengthened!
Last year, people from the University Organizing Center made a Disorientation Guide of alternate Wesleyan histories and perspectives for incoming freshmen.
This summer, we will be creating the next edition of this guide! If you’re interested in joining our team or if you want to submit a piece of writing / art / something else, email Abby at acunniff(at)wesleyan(dot)edu before the end of May!

Forget the prequels (seriously, forget them); with a new, young cast and Abrams at the helm, the Force is stronger than ever in Episode VII. Expertly balancing nostalgia and freshness, Abrams ushers the spirit of the original trilogy into the 21st century – with some sic action scenes to boot.
