All proceeds are going to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, who are responding incredibly to the disastrous earthquake in Nepal.
We are accepting also Venmo payments made out to: Michelle Lee
Thanks! See you there!

Carina Kurban ’14 wants you to live with her (and friends):
Are you interested in Arab/Middle Eastern/Muslim cultures? Do you like hummus, hookah, and henna? Do you want to live in a brick house with a fenced-in backyard, a screened-in porch, a dishwasher, private laundry machines, and the world’s most adorable DOG? Then apply to live in Turath House! Turath is currently seeking a sophomore or junior male to live in a gorgeous 300-sq ft double that has a built-in fireplace and built-in shelves. (Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be Arab, Middle Eastern, or Muslim to live in the house, nor do you need to speak Arabic). APPLY NOW!
Email ckurban(at)wesleyan(dot)edu for more information.
Do you like Indian food? Do you like body art? Looking for both in one place? Anika Amin ’14 has just the event for you:
Your favorite South Asian Culture Club, Shakti, the very one that brought you Samsara and Holi, is back this fall with Henna and Samosas in Olin! Stop by for a while if you like eating free Indian food, listening to Bollywood music, and being drawn on by South Asians.

Time: 7:30 pm
Place: Olin Lobby
Members of Turath House invite you to come draw on yourself:
Love henna? Never tried it? Come out for a night of henna, music, and good company whether you’re a henna veteran or want to try it out for the first time. Learn about what henna means and represents for people across different cultures.
(Henna, music, and learning will be provided. Bring smiles and design skillz.)
