Report: Running For Board of Trustees Sort Of Like Running for the WSA, But For Old People

Reveal yourself, Trustee-Candidates-Who-Didn’t-Make-It-Onto-The-Ballot. We know you’re out there.

Andrew Bleeker ’07 was one of 40 nominees for the Board of Trustees—and is now one of six candidates on the ballot for the Board of Trustees.

You know what it’s like to run for the WSA (it’s okay, we were all freshmen once), but do you know what it’s like to run for the Board of Trustees, Wesleyan’s most elite secret society?

According to a recent post on WesConnect, six alumni are in the process of finding out, each vying for a chance to spend sunny weekends in September, November, and May perched up in the Daniel Family Commons sipping Dom Pérignon, Making Important Decisions About Relle Important Stuff, and occasionally asking Public Safety to kick out uninvited student activists. (Or maybe they’re just running for the opportunity to kick it with West Wing star and Wesleyan trustee Bradley Whitford ’81.) The candidates on the ballot, as they present themselves on WesConnect, include:

Transitional Justice – Juries – Constitutions

Oh yeah.

Another interesting talk to fill your dull and lonely day. Catherine Chase ’15 writes in: 

Do you like ancient Greece? Do you want to know what ancient Greece can teach us about contemporary institutional design? Are you interested in going to law school?

Then come hear Professor Adriaan Lanni, all the way from HARVARD LAW SCHOOL, talk it.

Video Exclusive: Guy Meowing In Tree Outside Hall-Atwater

Continuing Wesleying’s Pulitzer-winning coverage of wildlife happenings on campus, we interrupt this broadcast to let you know that there is a guy meowing in a tree outside Hall-Atwater right now. Kate Gibbel ’15 frantically reports via email:

There’s a guy meowing in a tree outside of hall Atwater right now. Student in a tree, unknown duration but definitely from 11:30-12. I took the video. I’m thinking this is for social psych. It’s pretty fucking ridiculous

No word on who ze is, how ze got there, how long ze has been stationed, and whether or not this is viral promotion for tomorrow’s tea party with imaginary friends, but we’re grateful for any information you can provide. In the meantime, we’ve dutifully reported the  incident to @OverheardAtWes:

If the mystery mewoer sticks around for another five minutes, ze can translate hir concerns into chalk at today’s Massive Legal Daytime Chalk-In.
