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!

Come to PAC 002 this Thursday at 7pm where members of the WESU board can answer all of your burning questions (such as “When does training start?” and “Do you think radio can be used as a force for good as well as evil??”) Attendance at this meeting is not mandatory for completing training but if you are interested in getting involved with the station this semester try to make it!

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!
