When I first told people that I had decided on Wesleyan (and then explained to them what/where Wesleyan is, I swear to god, nobody has ever heard of this school), they would say “Oh wow, fall is going to be so beautiful up there! You’re so lucky!” I entered my freshman year with a fervent anticipation of the legendary New England Autumn. I allowed myself to get swept up in the hype and the beautiful foliage. But now, in my junior year, I’m at home for the semester, and I can say definitively that New England fall actually SUCKS.
The weather is really nice today! The sun is out, the air is not too cool, and it’s not raining/sleeting/hailing/raining fire from the sky! Also there’s lots of pretty leaves turning colors on the trees!
Foss is full of jubilant undergrads playing sports, doing homework, partaking in ~activites~, and just hanging out enjoying this beautiful day!
Come outside and enjoy the beautiful day! And if you have any nice fall photos, send them our way at staff[at]wesleying[dot]org!

As far as I’m concerned, the weather can’t seem to make up it’s mind, it’s in limbo. The leaves are gone, the tempterature can range from 20-50 degrees in one week, and people are walking around in flip flops while wearing winter jackets. Although the first day of winter isn’t until December 21st, it certainly doesn’t look like “Fall” anymore.

Is this beautiful weather making you want to spend every waking moment outside? Out House can help with that!
Come to the Outhouse Backyard (132 High) on Saturday (the 267h!) from 2-5 p.m. We’ll have all sorts of fall-y (and generally fun) activities, and there will be all sorts of fall-y foods to eat.
There will be cider (bring a mug!). There will be hot dogs (bring your mouth!). There will be t-shirt painting (bring a t-shirt!). There will be impromptu jam sessions (bring an instrument!). And there will be slug-wrestling (aka attacking your friends in sleeping bags). Moral of the story: it’ll be fun.
Also, we will have at least one tent full of ball pit balls. It’s gonna be sweet.
