Daniel Caballero ’15 wants you to get involved:
Kickoff the 2014-2015 school year on a high note by attending the 23rd
Annual Student Groups Fair. Student groups are a big part of life at
Wes and the WSA sponsored event is a great opportunity to meet with
both new and established groups. The annual fair also offers you a
chance to network with a few school departments who provide a great
variety of programs every year. Local vendors from the Middletown
community will be in attendance as well to help make the afternoon fun
Start the year right and come on down with your friends to the Student Groups Fair at the Huss Courtyard between 2 and 5 pm on Friday, September 12.
Date: Friday, September 12th, 2014
Time: 2:00PM – 5:00PM
Place: Huss Courtyard

Now that you know how to eat and sleep, and have realized that you have worse hand-eye coordination than a D7 athlete, what else is there to do? Student groups. Beyond the necessities of living and academics, extracurriculars are fundamental to “the Wesleyan experience” (some might even say they spend more time and effort on extracurriculars than academics). There are over 300 student groups to pick from, and many of them will be enticing, so choose wisely.
Consider the rule of seven:
if you halve your years then add seven, you’ll have the youngest decent age for a partner you should only commit yourself to seven major activities in any given semester. Each course counts as one, as do many jobs, sports teams, and student groups. While every commitments requires a different level of time and energy, and every person has different capabilities, this is a good general rule to keep in mind. Word on the street is that the rule has been spread on campus by Professor Joyce Jacobsen, but that can’t be confirmed.
While officially recognized by the WSA, Wesleyan’s student groups operate with a fair degree of autonomy and all have preferences for how do they choose to advertise themselves. While the diversity of expression might have its benefits, the lack of consistency also makes it difficult to find them.
It’s that time again, friends. Music, Marshmallows, Chocolate, Graham Crackers, S’mores, Redundancy—we’ll have it all this Thursday.
The bands Men With Bad Manners and The Rooks each will be playing a set while you get your s’mores on and hang out with your friends. The event is free, including the raffle to win some delectable prizes. So what are you doing this Thursday? Charring some marshmallow fluff and rocking out—that’s what.
Date: Thursday, May 3rd
Time: 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
