From Dana Pellegrino ’12 in the Office of Community Service:
The Office of Community Service is having a photo contest to give thanks to the many Wesleyan students who engage with the greater Middletown community. Anyone with a photo related to local community engagement can post it to our Facebook page and the winning photos will be framed and displayed in our new student lounge, Allbritton 318. Our goal is to highlight students’ dedication and show those on campus how to get involved!
Deadline: Thursday, November 1
The reggae album of the year is upon us!
Men with Bad Manners, featuring all of Wesleyan’s greatest musicians, has released its debut album, Seed Sankara. Not only is the music stupendous (produced by Buru Style’s Andrew Fogliano ’10), but it’s also for a great cause. MWBM includes Immanuel Lokwei ’12, Howe Pearson ’12, Matt Hurwit ’12, and Jesse Humm ’12.
Your support will help the Kapseret Soccer Club and Long Mouth Social Forum promote social dialogue, peaceful coexistence, and the revaluation of artistic creations in ethnically torn parts of rural Kenya.
Buy the album on Bandcamp or download hit single “Town Cow Skank” for free.
