With Valentine’s day just around the corner, you may be scouting for a last-minute date for the Bon Appetit Valentine’s dinner. In the tradition of crappy (read: great) meme Valentine’s Day e-cards, here are some Wesleyan-specific Valentine’s Day cards (complete with comic sans) for all of your Wesleyan-specific Valentine’s Day needs.
If you use any of these as pickup lines and they actually work for you (or if you fail miserably?), please let us know via the tipbox or by emailing us at staff[at]wesleying[dot]org.
Nina Stender ’16 wants YOU!
? 36 Questions to Fall in Love ?
Brought to you by the Social Experiment Group (aka SEGWAY)
Hoping to find love just in time for Valentine’s Day? Sign up to participate in a social experiment activity on Sat, Feb 13th at 430pm.
**DEADLINE: FRI, FEB 12TH AT 8PM**
Participants will be paired up and given a set of 36 questions, divided into three sets which scientists believe “foster closeness”. This is based on the idea that the best way for you to get close to your partner is for you to share with them and for them to share with you. After answering the questions, participants will sit and look into one another’s eyes for four minutes.
There will be FREE FROYO provided to help break the ice ;) –courtesy of the Adelphic Educational Fund
We are hoping to examine whether intimacy between two strangers can be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions. This experiment is based on a published psychological study by the psychologist Arthur Aron. (http://psp.sagepub.com/content/23/4/363.full.pdf+html )
Participants will be asked to fill in a follow-up survey (anonymous!) so we can find out if you guys developed any kind of friendship/relationship/ hookupship etc. We will write up the results and share them :)
Pls let us know if you have any questions/comments/concerns or if you want to get involved.

As part of our In Depth student group series, Keren Reichler ’16 and Miriam Kudler-Flam ’16 were nice enough to sit down with me and talk about their new Zymurgy Collective. After being dormant for a couple years, this club has come back to handle all of your fermentation needs. Read on to learn more about fermentation, how to get involved, and the many possible synonyms for the word ferment that you have not thought of before.
