Are you tired of academic monogamy? If you’re a freshman, COL might be just the right solution for you:

Freshmen: You are cordially invited to the COL Open House receptions on Monday Feb. 25 and Tuesday Feb. 26 at 4:15 pm!! COL majors, faculty, and cookies will be present to provide comfort, support, and answers to any major-related questions.

C.O.L. Wants Y.O.U: An “Open House”

Samantha Januszeski ’13 writes in with one of the better event posters I have seen since I scrolled endlessly through Brendan O’Connell ’08‘s Wesleyan Poster Archive. (Frosh: this is one of only a few majors you need to apply to this year. Apps are due on March 26, but if you get in, you can always reconsider.) Take note that the College of Letters library is now in 41 Wyllys, not Butt C—alas, that faulty has had enough asbestos for one tenured lifetime:

College of Letters Open Haus! Tomorrow

Attention Freshpeople! Do you want to be the paragon of literary sophistication and verve? Do you want to be given a structurally mandated reason to study abroad? Consider, then, the prospect of The College of Letters (COL). Imma take a step back and let mah homie Paul Schwaber (Director of COL) take over:

The COL is an interdisciplinary major in Western literature, philosophy, and history, with a required area of foreign language concentration, and a semester in residence abroad (usually in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Russia or Israel).

Deadline to apply for the major, which begins in sophomore year, is Monday, March 25. If you would like more info about the major, click here or go to the open house! Professor Schwaber (+ other folks) will wax poetic there and take questions.

Date: Monday, Dec 5.
Time: 4.15pm-5.00pm
Place: COL Library (Butt C Lounge/413)

“A Literary Extravaganza at the COL Lounge”

A. C. Wilkinson ’13, not to be confused with A. Wilkinson or Alix Wilkinson or, god forbid, Al Wilkinson, writes in about a veritable literary extravaganza happening this (Friday) afternoon in the COL Lounge: a public reading by the students of COL213, “The Suspense Story.” There Will Be Food (supposedly of the flat, disc-shaped variety), and there will be a spirited audience, because these COL(d) Warriors aren’t about to read eerie suspense fiction to a dreary, desolate room, devoid of humanity:

Come listen to your peers read their latest works of fiction! There will be spellbinding Hithcockian plots, incredible plot twists, and intense mood writing about anything you could possibly imagine: dog coffins, devilish song birds, fatal lotteries, reclusive astronomers in the Siberian wilderness, and much more. And there’s free pizza too!

If the poster’s any hint, it’s going to be a straight-up Snapetastical time, too.
Date: Friday, December 2
Time: 5:00 PM
Place: COL Lounge (in Butt C)
Pizza: Freeza
