HEY WESLEYAN!

Did you know that we post events? Wondering if you should submit your event? Well, you should! Wesleying gets anywhere from 1,000 to 7,000 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 that somehow never made “A WesAdmits Haunting – Back2(Pre-)Frosh ’17 Simulacrum Spook” appear in my newsfeed.

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:

The Official Story [La Historia Oficial]

1985. Argentina. Dir: Luis Puenzo. With Norma Aleandro. 112 min.

In the waning days of Argentina’s military rule, a wealthy woman suspects her adopted daughter might have been forcibly taken from a family of political dissidents and “disappeared” by the government. She seeks to uncover how much her privilege was built on the suffering of others, and whether some justice can yet be realized.

From Rebecca Jacobsen ’16:

Interested in making a difference in the Middletown community through a Wesleyan course? Apply for Wesleyan’s Community Research Seminar! Held in the spring semester and open to all juniors and seniors of ALL MAJORS.

In this 1.5 credit sociology class, small teams of students will carry out research projects submitted by local community groups and agencies. These may involve social science, natural science, or arts and humanities themes. Working with the community groups themselves, the teams will design and implement research projects throughout Middlesex County. Last year’s projects included determining the levels of food insecurity among Middletown children compared to children in nearby towns, and working with the North End Action Team (NEAT) to understand what improvements residents of the North End have seen in response to NEAT’s efforts as well as what issues continue to remain that need to be addressed.

Who Cares If It Snows? A Weekend Roundup

So, it snowed for the first time last night.  I’m assuming this means that winter has started, which is a little scary, but the events of this weekend are making it easier to process. There are many awesome things going on, including cultural shows, dancing shows and performing bands.

Here’s a roundup of some of the things happening:

Shining the Spotlight on Take Back the Night

Correction:  TBTN 2014 is on April 24.

Correction: TBTN 2014 is on April 24.

Have you ever been to Wesleyan’s annual Take Back the Night Event? If you haven’t, you absolutely should. The event is organized by the group Students for Consent and Communication (SFCC), and this year’s event will be held on Thursday, April 24 at 7 pm on Foss Hill. I recently caught up with the Co-Presidents of SFCC, Caillin Puente ’15 and Nina Gurak ’16, to learn more about Take Back the Night. If you think that you have more important things to do at 7 pm on Thursday, hopefully this post will change your mind.

The co-presidents informed me that Take Back the Night (TBTN) is a global movement, as annual demonstrations are held in thirty countries worldwide. In fact, the event is organized by the Take Back the Night charitable foundation that was established in 1999. Puente described the organization’s mission in broad terms: “Take Back the Night is a global movement to end sexual violence. Also, it aims to stop the silence and eliminate the shame surrounding crimes of sexual assault and sexual violence. It’s been around since the 1970s.” In fact, the first Take Back the Night event was held in Philadelphia in 1975 after a female scientist was murdered while walking home alone. Puente stated that the event now occurs annually on college campuses, cities, and in other settings. “It’s about shedding some light on the subject and bringing communities together.”

2013: A Very Wesleying Year in Review

NewYearWesleying

For those of you who Wesleying’d last year and saw our 2012 Year in Review post, brace yourselves: the 2013 Wesleying Year in Review is here. So, how does our Buzzfeed-esque list of all things Wesleyan work? In here, you’ll find the top ten biggest moments to hit campus during the 2013 year, along with a bunch of honorable mentions. For each point, we provide numerous links to Wesleying articles so you can become schooled if you missed anything during the year.

The big takeaway from this post is to remember that these issues are forever ongoing; just because something happened at the beginning of 2013 doesn’t make it any less important now that 2014 is upon us. We have a ton of bizarre, interesting, obnoxious, awesome, and freaky things happen on this campus, and it’s crucial to keep the institutional memory alive.

My usual disclaimer: Obviously, I didn’t get to everything. So instead of leaving us a snarky comment saying that we’re a bunch of  Internet-addicted hillbillies, feel free to leave your other big Wesleyan moments in the comments section.

In addition, these events are in no particular order of importance, severity, seriousness, or enormity. The order is seriously random.
