from arron’s fb event: “cover photo brought to you by googling “diverse screaming,” because just “screaming” is ~colorblind~”

WOW it’s already happening. Tonight at midnight, when reading period turns to exam period, is the PRIMAL SCREAM on the steps of Olin. Here’s the Facebook event if you’d like that. Shoutout to Arron Luo ’18 for making sure this gets coordinated for the past couple semesters and for keeping this Wes tradition alive.

Place: Olin steps

Primal Scream @ Midnight

The night before finals (yeah, that’s tonight) is a night to scream. Jason Shatz ’14 was thoughtful enough to set up a Facebook event for the occasion:

‘Tis the season to scream! Some people scream over holiday shopping. Others scream about a pending apocalypse.

But here at Wesleyan, we scream about the monsoon of papers with pending due dates and exams that are scheduled within the next few days. The first ones are tomorrow, so you know what that means…

It’s time to scream your lungs out! Never mind quiet hours, we’re too stressed for that. Let’s engage in one more community gathering – the only chance for community-based stress relief this semester.

At midnight, come out of your study bunkers at Olin, SciLi, wherever you are. You know what to do!

Date: Monday, December 10 (okay, technically Tuesday, whatever)
Time: Gather at 11:55, scream at 12:00
Place: Olin steps (or anywhere)

Fare thee well, ye olde Reading Week

This semester, we will no longer have four or five consecutive days to procras—er, study—during Reading Week. In fact, we will no longer have a Reading Week (even if that was never the official term for it, it usually bordered on being a week).

Behold! The Academic Calendar reveals the schedule:

December 8: classes end
December 9-10: Reading Period
December 11-12: final exams
December 13-14: Reading Period
December 15-16: final exams
December 17: housing closes

Dec. 13-14—the second half of Reading Period—is the weekend.
