Submit to the Subway Ride: TIME

From Haenah Kwon ’17:

tsrIT’S ABOUT TIME. The Subway Ride, the all-inclusive human expression magazine, is accepting submissions for our Fall’16 magazine and blog, and it is, indeed, about TIME. You know the rules, submit any work (anonymously or not) you have as long as you think it is respectful to others and is vaguely- or closely- related to our theme. Be creative!

We accept videos and sounds/music in addition to printable works.
We will also have boxes traveling around campus (related to ‘REGRETS’ and ‘TIME TRAVEL) (especially near bathrooms and cafes) where you can submit anonymous short pieces, so watch out for those.

Email everything to thesubwayride[at]gmail[dot]com.
More info: thesubwayride.weebly.com

We are, after all, cans of pine-apples (points for you if you get the reference).

WesStuffed Food Blog seeks leader

Ari Rudess ’15 writes in:

WesStuffed founders Ari Rudess ’15 and Alex Irace ’15 are looking for a fearless leader(s) to manage Wesleyan’s official food blog. Everything is established: the domain name, the publicity initiatives, and the connections with Middletown restaurants and on-campus eateries (we promise you will never go hungry again.) The only qualifications are that you love food, enjoy writing, and are interested and committed to taking the reigns on this endeavor. If you’re the next overlord of WesStuffed, shoot an email to arudess[at]wesleyan[dot]edu and cc. lhess[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

If taking charge is too daunting, but you want to get involved, email arudess[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Wesboxed: Renovations in the Package Center


Love it or hate it, the wesstation and the package center are integral parts of the Wesleyan experience. And it just got a lot easier, although not necessarily more efficient, to receive your packages. As you have probably noticed, wesstation and the package center have consolidated into a spiffy, newly renovated centralized space in the Usdan basement. Wesstation took over the old package center and the package center moved next door to B22, formerly a music practice room.

To find out more about the new consolidation, I sat down with Danielle Salafia, a postal clerk who has worked at Wes for almost 17 years. The following is a shortened version of our interview:

Procrastination Destination: Art Blogs


Ever wonder how hipsters at Wes discover obscure artists? Well this post isn’t going to tell you because then they would become mainstream and suck. However, you might be a little more welcome on the quiet side after visiting some of these art blogs:

You may not have known but probably expected that some of our brilliant peers are killing it in the online realm. Once upon a while ago, frostedmoose did a post on some Gov professors in the blogosphere. Abrogs have gotten attention. But this doesn’t even begin to cover it. I compiled a list of some of the more well-known bloggers among us– complete with blurbs from the bloggers themselves! You’re missing some QUALITY bloggin’ if you haven’t checked these girls (see what I did there?) out:

Feministing Comes to Wes


From Talia Baurer ’15:

What is the state of the feminist movement today? Where is it “moving”? How do we build a feminist movement that centers the needs of trans* people and people of color? If you are curious about these topics, have an opinion on these topics, have heard these topics discussed on campus (and want to know more), love Feministing, love panels, love PAC, love having opinions about things (yes, every Wesleyan student, that means you)… come hear Feministing editors Jos Truitt and Katie Halper, and Shira Engel (!!), speak and answer questions on these questions on Thursday, November 21st at 6 PM in PAC 001! Want to know more about our speakers? Read their bios here (note: Katie is a Wes alum!).

Everyone Is Gay


Yes, reader, that includes you. Coming at you from Marissa Castrigno ’15:

Everyone is Gay began as a humorous advice blog, but quickly became a multi-faceted safe haven for young people – particularly queer youth, their families and friends. In fall of 2011, Everyone is Gay began touring school campuses nationwide to raise awareness, answer questions, and provide simple yet powerful steps for bringing change and awareness to communities… while keeping everyone laughing.
