Whether you’re a current student, an alum, or a very enthusiastic parent, WesPregame is making it easier than ever for you to be in the loop about Wesleyan athletics. WesPregame is a sports broadcasting program provided by IMS that “provides rich, interactive Wesleyan content on game days that will be broadcasted live on the internet and throughout campus.” (This is according to its website.)
Started by Michael Yoshida ’13 and Lionel Nyange ’12 a few years back, WesPregame has already generated plenty of football coverage and commentary, available on its Youtube channel. It will be expanding its reach this year to include basketball in the winter and men’s lacrosse in the spring. Nyange writes in:
We designed WesPregame as a program that would cover all things athletic at Wes, from club sports to varsity, giving our audience an inside look at what makes athletics at Wesleyan unique and great. WesPregame is rapidly advancing towards our dream of covering all things sports at Wesleyan.
If you’re one of those fine folks who check Wesleying more regularly than you do your own emails, you may have missed the following e-mail by the finer folks who run out technology services:
The first of 2 or 3 Internet outages to begin configuration for our new bandwidth will take place Tuesday morning, April 26, between 6:30 and 7:00AM. This will affect Internet service only. Internal resources (PeopleSoft, WesFiles, etc) will continue uninterrupted.
Email will be delivered and will simply be delayed during that time.
Please understand that this is NOT the installation of the new bandwidth. This is in preparation for that change.
Director of User and Technical Services
The bandwidth version of blue-balling perhaps? Marrrgghhhh.

IMS is looking to update their website and they’re looking for a copyeditor. As Vernon describes:
We’ve written a lot of content and need other content. We also have started a section for stories about our group. So we’re looking for someone who wants to rewrite a lot of what we’ve written, interview us, and write some stories. It should be a pretty comfy job, and it will be paid. Ideally this person would work with us in our cool office (sometime between 9 and 5), but if they’re already working somewhere else, then they might be able to work from home. They can e-mail me (Vernon at lthommeret@wes) if they’re interested, what kind of writing they’ve done, and a writing sample (preferably).
