Call for Seniors to Sign Petition to Support Senior Week and Commencement!

Hello Wesleying! Following the cancellation of in-person graduation in May, this petition requests an in-person graduation and senior week for the class of 2020, once it is safe to do so. We’ve all worked very hard in these past four years, and though serving the public health might dictate that we should hold off on any large celebrations, we believe that the senior class deserves an opportunity to commemorate the community and growth we’ve attained while on Wesleyan’s campus. We’re trying to get AT LEAST 600 senior signatures, so we could use all the support we can get! Parents, alumni, other students, and faculty can sign too—so please sign and share wherever/whenever you can! Feel free to reach out to Willis Weinstein ’20 wweinstein@wesleyan.edu with any questions ?

In Loving Memory of Mathilde Roth

It is with deep sorrow that we at Wesleying must share that Mathilde Roth, Michael Roth’s dog, passed away recently. Roth posted a tribute to her on his Twitter on April 10th, saying that it’s “So sad to say goodbye to our beloved Mathilde.” As college students, our interactions with pets are far and few between, and I know that for many of us, seeing Mathilde out for a walk around campus was an uplifting sight. Even if we didn’t really get to interact with her, her presence was still felt, and it was obvious that she was a very good girl. She will be missed by all of us. Continue below the cut to see a selection of heartwarming Mathilde photos, and to remember her fondly.
