Not pictured: Joss Whedon ’87, you
Think your nuggets of wisdom are worthy of sharing the stage with Joss Whedon ’87? Seriously? Laura Yim ’13 challenges you to prove it:
Hey Seniors! What has your Wesleyan experience meant to you?
This is your LAST chance to submit a 200-250 essay to be the Senior Speaker! Your essay should serve as an abstract to to the speech you wish to deliver at graduation. Completed essays should be emailed to Dean Brown (lsbrown@wes) by TOMORROW at 11:59pm.
All essays will be reviewed anonymously by the Senior Commencement Speaker Committee. The committee will select several applicants from the essay submission pool as finalists for interviews, which will be conducted between Wednesday, February 27 through Friday, March 1. The speaker will be announced before spring break.
Deadline: Tomorrow at 11:59 p.m.
Note that the deadline is tomorrow, just before midnight. If my timing is correct, yes, that does mean you can drunkenly write the entire thing on your iPhone on the bus back from Senior Cocks. In fact, I strongly encourage it.
No, we didn’t snag video proof of Dean Brown belting out “White Rabbit” and “Be My Baby” at Saturday’s Senior Barbecue, but here’s a pretty close estimation.
The Senior Barbecue ensued as planned in the Fountain/Pine backyards, with grilled chicken, smiles, and bright orange wristbands for all. Also, there was a raffle. Congratulations to whoever won that cool thing. Scroll on for photo coverage of a performance by Bones Complex (following closely on their performance at The Mash last week) and general shenanigans by Wes Cardinal ’13, who frolicked boisterously around the green and then got brutally attacked by “Big Willie Style” Feinstein ’13. Images by me and Goatmilk.
Non-seniors, this is the kind of event you can look forward to having later on. No word on what happens if you self-identify as a senior. From Ross Wells Gormley ’13:
This Saturday afternoon, come hang out in the backyards of Fountain/Pine with your fellow classmates for a welcome back SENIORS ONLY event!
Bring your blankets, frisbees, drinks/ID’s (Wesleyan and state-issued), and enjoy some tasty fare including grilled chicken, vegan dishes, and salads. There will also be performances by Smokin’ Lillies, IGBEE aka Bruce Durley, and Bones Complex.
A senior pass (a pass to Senior Cocktails, formal and semi-formal, and other outings) will be raffled along with a foosball table, Wes apparel, and gift certificates to local eateries. Tickets cost $1 each and a portion of the proceeds will go towards our Senior Gift.
