Ever noticed that the term “hooking up” is actually pretty confusing and ambiguous? When someone wants to “hook up”, does he/she/ze means what you do? How do you know?? Come chat about how to best communicate your wants, needs, and desires with a partner (or partners) and maximize the satisfaction of all at the first workshop in our Healthy Relationships Series, “Healthy Hook Ups”!
Join us for a FREE THAI FOOD DINNER and an open, honest, awesome workshop discussing these questions and many more!
It’s that time of year again. Blossoms are blooming, pollen fills the air, and everyone’s a hot mess.
You know what that means: Wescam is here. It’s the end of the year and for just a little while, the power of the Internet is here to help you connect with those beautiful seniors who are leaving soon. The site’s pretty much the same as the last two years. Underclassmen can add seniors, seniors can add anyone.
All it takes is an account with your Wes email. Explanation from the developers themselves:
wescam lets seniors find other students on campus and other students find seniors. add usernames of people you want to meet up with (they don’t need to already have a wescam account) and if you both add each other, you’ll be simultaneously notified!
one other thing: if someone adds you and you haven’t added them, you both have the opportunity to anonymously message the other person to find out more about each other. we’ll also give the other person a fake username so that you can identify them easily in your conversations. so you can ask them whether you’re both in the same class or how they know you. then you can try to add them to see if you’ve guessed correctly!
Let’s salute our fellow cross-campus, early-morning weekend travelers (some of whom I have encountered on repeated occasions and hope to one day courageously approach in an effort to develop some sort of a friendship based on mutual sleep deprivation and the reprise of last night’s outfit, but my social skills are somewhat lacking) and offer them an alternative to the disgusting and extremely sexist use of the term “Walk of Shame.” I mean, let’s not try and sugarcoat it; sometimes the walk back to your own room after a night of adventure can feel a little shameful.
But it shouldn’t.
The ubiquitous “Walk of Shame” talk needs to stop. We enjoy the less common but much more empowering term “Stride of Pride.” It’s a gender-neutral way to describe a guilt-free sunrise walk back to one’s own room. It’s really unacceptable that women are still made to feel ashamed for expressing their sexuality or exercising their right to engage in casual, sexual relationships in a way men have been been applauded for doing for years. Everyone should have the freedom to feel proud of their choices, whether or not those choices involve any sexual activity. Also, you can be doing a stride of pride for any number of reasons! Just got a free cup of coffee? Stride of pride it up!
Not sure how the Comp Sci department can help you get laid during Senior Week?
WeScam, everyone’s favorite website for “meeting other students over senior week,” is back in action. The coding and general rules are the same as last year—in short, underclassmen can only add seniors, seniors can add anyone. The logic, in short: you’re graduating, so who cares? You need to sign up on WeScam to add other students; you don’t need to be signed up to get an email notification when someone adds you.
