First UOC Open Community Meeting

The UOC writes in:

The University Organizing Center invites you to our first Open Community Meeting, a monthly forum about the Wesleyan community. This first meeting will be organized into two parts: a discussion portion that aims to start dialogue about resources and collaboration on campus, and a mixer portion where people can meet each other, enjoy a free Haveli dinner, and potentially think about working together in the future. We hope you join us for this meeting (as well as for future meetings), as we want to start a wider campus conversation with you.

Date: Wednesday, November 16th
Time: 5:00 PM
Place: 200 Church Library

Fighting Hunger Has Never Been Easier

So, maybe you don’t have 750 points lying around on your WesID at this point in the semester as I do right now. But, I’m sure you can still spare a few points to donate to fight food insecurity in our community and demonstrate a sense of solidarity against poverty across all boundaries. Read on for details from Anike Arni ’13 on how to achieve such a noble goal..

Time is running out to donate your points to Fast-a-Thon!
Next Tuesday is Wesleyan’s 5th Annual Fast-a-Thon Banquet. Participants are invited to join the rest of the campus in donating points, cash, or check to the Amazing Grace Soup Kitchen in Middletown. This event raises money to fight food insecurity in our local community, and demonstrates solidarity against poverty across all boundaries.
Don’t wait! Donate now – you can do it online this year! All participants are invited to the Banquet this Tuesday, Nov. 15, 5:45PM in Beckham Hall, with FREE dinner from Haveli India and free t-shirts. Donate more than 15 points and enter a raffle for a $100 Best Buy Gift Card.
Seats at the Banquet are limited, so come early!
Please email Hira Jafri ’13 at hjafri(at)wesleyan(dot)edu with any questions.
