Nina Stender ’16 wants YOU!
? 36 Questions to Fall in Love ?
Brought to you by the Social Experiment Group (aka SEGWAY)
Hoping to find love just in time for Valentine’s Day? Sign up to participate in a social experiment activity on Sat, Feb 13th at 430pm.
**DEADLINE: FRI, FEB 12TH AT 8PM**
Participants will be paired up and given a set of 36 questions, divided into three sets which scientists believe “foster closeness”. This is based on the idea that the best way for you to get close to your partner is for you to share with them and for them to share with you. After answering the questions, participants will sit and look into one another’s eyes for four minutes.
There will be FREE FROYO provided to help break the ice ;) –courtesy of the Adelphic Educational Fund
We are hoping to examine whether intimacy between two strangers can be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions. This experiment is based on a published psychological study by the psychologist Arthur Aron. (http://psp.sagepub.com/content/23/4/363.full.pdf+html )
Participants will be asked to fill in a follow-up survey (anonymous!) so we can find out if you guys developed any kind of friendship/relationship/ hookupship etc. We will write up the results and share them :)
Pls let us know if you have any questions/comments/concerns or if you want to get involved.
Date: Saturday, February 13
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Place: Exley 150 Tishler Hall
Cost: FREE LOVE!!!!!!
From the greatest person you’ll ever meet, Max Owen-Dunow ’15 (no seriously, you need to talk to him if you haven’t):
Let’s Get Ready is a free SAT tutoring and college counseling program that serves underserved high school students from Middletown and Meriden. Our students are from low-income families (they receive free or reduced-price lunches at school) and/or are first-generation college-bound students. Let’s Get Ready aims to equal the playing field by providing low-income students with the same chance at getting into a great school that students from high-income families that can afford expensive SAT prep classes have.
We’re raising money to support our program and we need your help!
From Monday April 7th through Sunday April 13th, FroyoWorld has generously offered to donate 20% of your purchase to the Wesleyan Let’s Get Ready program. It’s the perfect excuse to get froyo three (or ten) times in a week and celebrate the fact that we’re finally, finally getting some good weather.
*In order to make your purchase count, please remember to mention to the cashier that you’re participating in the Wesleyan Let’s Get Ready fundraiser.* If you don’t say anything, we don’t get our money!
Thanks so much for your help! See you on Main St.!
Date: Now through Sunday, April 13th
Time: All the time (for real though, froyo is mad delicious)
Place: FroyoWorld at 386 Main Street
