With the advent of Zoom came a new set of social norms. Amongst those were a newly adapted set of ways to bid your professor farewell. Given that we haven’t been vaccinated yet–and are therefore still under the tyranny of Zoom, we here at Wesleying thought it may be useful to run through the various options one has when it comes to leaving a zoom meeting. How exactly do you say goodbye?
Let it be known that at approximately 4:21 PM on March 31st, 2021, the entire student body of Wesleyan University could be heard giving a collective sigh of relief.
Why, you may ask? Well I am pleased to announce (drum roll please)…
They’re vaccinating all on-campus students.
It’s just a quick trip to Wesportal and a click on the bright red “Schedule COVID-19 Vaccination” at the top of your screen. From there fill out the form and presto, you’re good to go! Now all you have to do is wait in agony for the next 24 days, 16 hours, and 12 minutes!
But hey, who’s counting?
So hop to it, and happy vaccinating my friends!
Read the text of the all campus email after the break:
That’s my fetish.
In pandemic times, we’re all looking for that added sense of excitement. Me? I’ve been getting that rush through my biweekly university-mandated COVID test. Let me show you what you’ve been doing wrong:
To the Wesleyan community,
Greetings. Today I write to commend you on your solitude (so far, read on) on this day usually reserved for displays of affection, even love. That being said, the administration understands the toll the suppression of sexuality takes on the developing mind and has been hard at work with local and state officials to reach a compromise on your behalf.
Sometimes life is just garbage.
Here are three pieces of media that brought me joy during the first 263 days of this dumb, hellish, seemingly decade-long year.
Just postin’ ’em here in the hope that you find similar contentment (and maybe catharsis?) during the remaining hundred three days. <3
- The University is proposing to reopen campus this fall, Michael Roth announced today in an all-campus email.
- Classes would start and end a week early, with the possibility of finishing online after Thanksgiving. With the early start, we would miss at most one week of in-person instruction.
- Additional precautions, such as travel restrictions and contact tracing, would be taken to ensure the health of the student body, faculty, and staff.
- Students unable to return to campus this fall would be able to continue their coursework online. If students wish to defer, they must petition to do so by June 30.
- More details will be released in early July.
