If you’ve visited Weshop this year (everyone, right?), you’ve probably noticed some changes to the layout from last year. There’s more space, some tables in the middle, and new products, it seems. I talked to Weshop director Gary Kriksciun, who explained that the new layout is intended to open up the store–creating a better flow and providing a better shopping experience, one of Bon Appetit’s primary goals. The tables often offer sale items, and sometimes have a seasonal flair (like the Halloween table). However, if you notice new products, it’s because—according to Kriksciun—Weshop is “constantly adding new products.”
Of course, there’s the kicker: WHY IS WESHOP SO EXPENSIVE?

Acquiring angel investment or venture capital is often the first goal for many emerging entrepreneurs. However, many startups pursue this type of investment before they are ready. We’ll talk about what angel investors and venture capitalists are looking for from start ups before they invest including
1: planning, documentation and proof of concept
2: criteria used to evaluate business plans
3: rates and pace of return that they ask for in return for their investment.
Anonymous commenters, shoutbox-ers, ACB-ers: You want Wesleying not to crash every Finals Week (or other sporadic moments throughout the year). You want Wesleying to be more user friendly. You want to be able to sort through posts easier. You want aesthetic changes to be made quicker. You want it? You got it — That is, of course, if you can help us make that happen. Our server contract ends this year, and we are hoping to upgrade so Wesleying.2011 can be better, faster, stronger. With your fund$ we can:
renew our contract, stay online
upgrade our server! no more annoying 503s!
have some $$$ to make Wesleying even more user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing (although we know you all loved the “Wesleying: a website for students who go here to Wesleyan” banner, having some money would make our redesigns faster and more professional)
keep Wesleying 100% independent – We would like to remain completely financially independent and non-university affiliated (no SBC funds). Wesleying was created to be an independent student blog, and while it may only be symbolic, we’d like to have the independence to go on rants about the University like with the Tour de Franzia crackdown or the Fountain Avenue fiasco, or just post pictures of students in their underwear with Michael Roth’s face pasted on.
While Wesleying may not give you a sweet tote bag like NPR does, here are some reasons you should support us:
you’re a rich alum or parent who’s too cool to want hir name on a building. Wesleying keeps you updated on what’s going on better than any Wesleyan listserv. Or you’re a poor alum with Cardinal spirit, an internet addiction, and $1 to spare.
For a forum where students, administrators, administrators posing as students and students posing as administrators can discuss campus policies and news.
For our dearly departed Sheek and Holly and Xue and so many others!
So if you are so inclined, make your donation to Wesleying’s PayPal account whether you’re a student, a parent, an alum, or just someone who googled “sex party.” You can donate any amount you wish, and show some class pride by adding your class year in cents (i.e. Michael Roth ’78, donate $100.78! Poor alum ’10, donate $1.10!). At least join the facebookevent and spread it to your friends.
All of us at Wesleying
