Wesleyan Political Union Interest Meeting

political-union-debate-cartoonTess Vartanian ’20 writes in:

The Wesleyan Political Union is a new group on campus dedicated solely to political discourse. While Wesleyan is certainly a very politically active campus, we felt that a space for true bipartisan discourse was sorely lacking. We’re here to create a space for students to discuss ideas and philosophies through parliamentary style debate. If you’re interested, come to our interest meeting to learn more about what we do. Whether you are unsure where you stand politically, want to learn more about current events, or just want to hear an opposing opinion, this is the club for you!

Date: Thursday, October 27
Time: 8:30-9 PM
Place: Fisk 302

Student-Run Art Space Interest Meeting

From Rachel Day ’16:

A few of us have been working to create a student-run shared art space on campus. We’ve secured a physical location in Hewitt 8 and a construction crew is putting on the finishing touches. It will soon be available for use, but before that happens: we want to open this project up to the community.

We will be meeting this Sunday, January 31st in PAC 001 at 4 pm to share the work we’ve done so far and to lay out the work that has yet to be accomplished. We would love for this to be a community effort based on creative discussion, exchange, imagining, and dreaming. We hope to see you there, and please feel free to bring along those you think might be interested. Any level of input/involvement would be so appreciated, whether that means being a core part of this effort or just giving some feedback for an hour or so on Sunday.

We embark on this endeavor with the recognition that our campus needs so much more and with the aim that this space can move us just the smallest bit closer to the community we hope to live in.

Please get in touch if you have any questions. See you soon!
-Rachel Day, Isaac Schneider, Tess Altman, Paola Maseda, Christian Black, and Angus Macdonald

Identity Crisis Newsletter Interest Meeting


From Sasha Stahl ’17:

It feels really good when people say something you can relate to or connect with. People at Wesleyan have varied, unique identities that cover a breadth of experiences, opinions, and attitudes that can both allow us to understand where our peers are coming from or conversely, not quite relate to one another.

To that end, what I want to CREATE is a brief, bimonthly NEWSLETTER that allows people to relate to one another, through a sharing of personal anecdotes, a section highlighting a Wesleyan student of the week who has focused on their identity in some way, and an “overheard this week” section, among others. Simultaneously I want people to feel EMPOWERED and COMFORTED by the knowledge that people on campus experience similar feelings, frustrations, and feats as they do. I want this newsletter to help people on campus realize the different identities and experiences that make up this campus, while also creating a dialogue to speak about these differences.
