From Rachie Weisberg ’15 and Co-op kids,

This Monday we will be holding an info session to learn about Wesleyan’s local co-op.  The co-op aims to provide direct access for Wesleyan students to fresh, locally grown and produced foods including veggies, fruits, cheese, meat, eggs, dairy, bread, tofu, seitan and granola. Every week these products will be brought straight from the farmers to you.  Mmmmm.

The meeting is not required to sign up for the co-op but it is highly recommended as we will be going over many changes of our restructured system including how to pay for the co-op, where to pick up and more!

Where: Shanklin 107
When: Monday 9/8 at 8pm
Event post: F.Book
Cost: Free (the info sesh, not the fresh veggies.  Come to find out their price!)

Wes Mock Trial Info Session

From Erica Arensman ’17:

Do you like to argue? Do you love watching Legally Blonde but think all the courtroom scenes are terribly unrealistic? Are you interested in putting on a costume and pretending to be a policeman with a Russian accent?

If any of those things apply to you, Wes Mock Trial wants YOU to come to our info session this Friday at 6pm. We’ll be answering any questions you have about the team, and you’ll be able to learn about try-outs and sign up for a time slot.

Check out the Facebook event page here for the location, and contact Simon or Erica with any questions/concerns.
