A lot of this is recycled text (thx wilk) from recycled text from two years ago (thx Maya) from recycled text from three years ago (thx Samira), but here are some tips and guidelines for submitting your events!
HEY WESLEYAN COMMUNITY!
Did you know that we post events? Wondering if you should submit your event? Well, you should! Wesleying gets anywhere from 500 to 1,200 views per day as of late. Submitting your event to be posted here is good for ~exposure~ and also a way to reach different audiences than those reached by Facebook’s weird algorithm.
We love posting your events, but we get a lot of them. If you want your meeting/audition/application deadline/concert/thing posted to Wesleying on time, please use this form here. This time of the year is especially busy which makes our inbox quickly burst at the seams, so it helps if you submit your event at least 4 or 5 days in advance.
Much of this is elaborated from our event submissions policy, but here are some things you can do to make life easier:

During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, New York comedian Aman Ali, and his filmmaker friend Bassam Tariq decided to observe the month with Muslims from a different state each day. They hopped in a blue Chevy Cobalt, drove over 13,000 miles and blogged daily at 30mosques.com, with tens of thousands of followers worldwide. Along the way, they prayed in the infamous ‘Ground Zero’ mosque, got pulled over by a cop in Mississippi, and visited the first mosque in the U.S. in Ross, North Dakota- a town with only 48 people. They two will discuss the communities they met and share photos and videos from their trip. They’ve been featured on CNN, ABC, BBC and have been interviewed for numerous publications including Time Magazine and Al Jazeera.

From Raghu Appasani ’12:
The MINDS Foundation is a new student-run NGO started by Wesleyan students that is dedicated to promoting the availability of medical, educational, and supportive resources for patients with mental illness and neurological disorders. Our major goal is to set-up a rural clinic transport system to screen psychiatric patients in tribal regions and establish educational workshops to remove stigma.
A new chapter has opened at Wesleyan and they are currently seeking members. Please contact Raghu Appasani at rappasani(at)mindsfoundation(dot)org for more information.
There will be an Information Session on Sunday November 14th at 8PM in Allbritton 304.

For those interested in participating in the first-ever Wesleyan University Slam Poetry Team, we’ll be hosting a short practice/mock slam to give everybody a chance to meet each other and see how events will run in the future. Again, this is targeted at those interested in **participating** in future slams as a fun, no-strings-attached practice.
Sign Up sheet goes up at 8PM, event begins at 8:15. There will only be 10 slots so get there early.
Poets should note that nothing performed in the Mock Slam will count toward the “no repeat rule” — in other words, if you use a piece this Thursday you may use it again at an official event.
