In the holiday spirit of thanking people and making toasts, here’s a toast to our very own Sheek! Recently named WesCeleb, Sheek has been holding down the fort and keeping Wesleying interesting for two years now, and hey, it’s only fitting that he get some recognition.
So thanks, Sheek, for keeping us on our toes, posting great content and making Wesleying more of a family. If you haven’t checked it out yet, here’s the interview in the Argus.
This party is either hugely under-publicized, or hugely fake.
The listing has been removed from today’s Events Calendar, but the Custom Events Calendar that arrived in my inbox this morning lists a “Wesleyan Holiday Party” hosted by Michael Roth and Kari Weil:Date: Today, Dec. 11
Time: 3:30 PM
Place: President’s House (269 High)
Disclaimer: I think anyone can add events to the Events Calendar—though, they do have to be approved before they go public. In any case, before you crowd his front door, it might be nice to RSVP with his office (ext. 3500).
So, is Earth Day about as big a deal as Arbor Day, or Grandparents’ Day at this point? Boxing Day in Canada? Is it a thing at Wesleyan? Where is the love?
As Dean Whaley noted in a recent email to students, there will be a celebration for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day next week. Details can be found at wesleyan.edu/mlk.
On Tuesday, January 29, 2008, Wesleyan University will celebrate the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, a singer and composer who founded the internationally renowned a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey in the Rock, will join us for the celebration. Dr. Reagon, who received an honorary degree from Wesleyan in 2001, will facilitate a lunch discussion and give the keynote address at the community-wide celebration to be held at 4:15 pm in Memorial Chapel. This celebration also will feature music from the Roadside Girls and The Ebony Singers, a student reflection, remarks from President Michael S. Roth and excerpts from Dr. King’s 1964 Baccalaureate Address.
