From Sara Feldman ’17, on behalf of Middletown Potluck:
Ever thought that you could really use something sweet and homemade to go with your late night coffee and studying?
Of course you have. Come to Espwesso on Thursday night for some awesome treats! Pay what you can, and all proceeds will go directly to buying lockers to secure the personal property of homeless citizens in Middletown. These lockers are essential for homeless people as there are no other ways to safeguard their few and valuable belongings, which are often stolen because of a lack of proper storage. Come to Espwesso, buy yummy treats, and feel good about it, too.
Time: 9:00PM – 12:00AM
Place: Right outside Espwesso!
Cost: Pay what you can (but please pay something!)
From Marjorie Hunt ’15:

Marisa Guerrero ’15 has a delicious proposition:
Do you love to bake? Think you can create the yummiest cookie ever? In need of a break from midterms? Well you’re in luck!
Next Thursday 3/7, Brighter Dawns is hosting its second annual COOKIE CUP! The Cookie Cup is an event where Wesleyan students can sample dozens of cookies made by a bunch of teams (including yours!) and vote on the most creative/most delicious/most aesthetically appealing, etc. Basically, it’s an excuse for us all to eat our weight in cookies.
Right now, we’re looking for teams – of however many people you want – to bake! Don’t be afraid to get creative with your baked goods. (Last year’s winner was the “Inception Cookie” – a cookie inside a cookie – and it was legendary). Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams!
To sign up a team or receive more information, email sbhalobasha@wes. Even if you are not interested in baking, join us at the Usdan Cafe at dinnertime on Thursday, 3/7 to participate in the eating part of the Cookie Cup! Proceeds benefit Brighter Dawns, an organization that works to improve health conditions in the slums of Bangladesh.
Date: Sign up now, compete on Thursday, 3/7
Time: Contest is from 6-9 pm
Place: Usdan Cafe
Wesleying liveblogging is back and
badder cooler weirder more kitten- and baby-filled than ever. Great news: we (as in the Wesleyan community) have a 24-Hour Study Space. Located in that weird glass room in SciLi, this awesomeness is open 24/7 to anyone who has a WesID and an I’m-pulling-an-all-nighter-to-finish-this-paper attitude.
Better news: tonight is the space’s launch party, featuring baked goods from the spiffy peeps of the WSA Organization and External Affairs Committee.
Stop by, mingle with your fellow students, and eat some good ass food, say hi to us (the loud noobs with the laptops), and pretend to like us as we try not to act like the most awkward people at this college.
Let the first liveblog of the Spring 2013 semester begin!
Missed the first two opportunities to give blood this year? Jennifer Paykin ’12 writes:
Wesleyan will host our third blood drive of the year this Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10. To sign up for an appointment, go to
the Red Cross website and search for the sponsor code WesleyanU. From there you can select the day on which you want to
donate, sign into or create a new account, and pick a time slot. Appointments must be made 24 hours in advance though we also accept walk-ins on the day of the drive.
Before you donate make sure you drink lots of water and eat iron-rich foods, and bring a photo ID. If you have any questions or are
interested in volunteering, email Jackie Freed ’15 (jfreed@wes) or Jen Paykin ’12 (jpaykin@wes). We look forward to seeing you at the drive!
