Interested in worker’s rights? Want higher wages for
students, Sun Services staff, construction workers, and others both on and off campus? Wesleyan’s United Student Labor Action Coalition is
definitely the student group for you. Come check out this week’s
meeting and get involved! *Snacks will be served.*

Your 9AMs will now be earlier. By 10, minutes, yes. But ask me if I get to Pi before my 9AM in time to now make it to an 8:50.
Members of the Education Policy Committee (EPC) sent an all-campus email about the class time shift earlier today. The time shift would shift all morning classes 10 minutes earlier, and all afternoon and evening class times 10 minutes later. This would create a “common time” between 12:10 and 1:20 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and between 11:40 and 1:20 on Tuesdays and Thursdays that will make it easier for faculty to schedule meetings and other things that faculty people do.
The time shift will be part of a pilot program for the next 2 academic years. The email mentions that the class time shift accommodates a time change in the University faculty meeting. The email is included after the break.
So, some initial concerns:

Join us at Outhouse (132 High St) this Tuesday at 10pm for the first Outing Club meeting of the semester. There are a lot of great things about Wesleyan Outing Club – gooey baked things at every Tuesday meeting, access to an attic full of gear for your adventures, and the opportunity to meet other outdoor-minded people and plan adventures together, just to name a few! Outing Club is open to EVERYONE, and you can come to as many or as few meetings as you like. Each week at meeting we will begin putting a list of outings together for the week, which will be sent out later that week to the listserv, for anyone to hop on! Come hit the trails with us ;)
Date: Tuesday, September 15th
Time: 10:00pm – 11:00pm

From Anders Dohlman ’15:
Come to the year’s first meeting of the Undergraduate Math Club! We’ll be hearing from five of your fellow students who did math-related research or internships this summer about their work, how they found their programs, and what the experience was like. Their projects included math research here at Wesleyan and at other universities, mathematical biology research, and statistical work at a consulting firm. If you’re interested in internships or summer research related to math, or if you just want to hear what some of your fellow students have been up to, be sure to come! Pizza and drinks will be provided!

An invitation from Siri Carr ’15:
Take a study break this Sunday at 2pm to find out about the one and only WES-GILEAD ALLIANCE!!! There will be FREE COOKIES!!!
What is the Wes-Gilead Alliance, you may ask? The WGA is a student-run organization that works with Gilead Community Services in Middletown to pair Wes students up with a member of the Middletown community who is receiving Gilead services to help with their mental illness. It’s a buddy program that works to form rewarding relationships between Wesleyan and Gilead buddies as a way of helping them get rehabilitated back into society. Buddy meet-ups may include going on a walk, sharing a meal together, seeing a movie, going to a sporting event…almost anything goes!
If this tickles your fancy, stop on by Judd 113 on Sunday at 2pm to find out more! Attendance at this meeting does not require you to join WGA – this is just an info session to gauge interest for recruiting new members for next semester!
Date: Sunday (today!), December 8
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Place: Judd Hall, rm. 113
From Dwight Greene Intern Kate “Salty” Cullen ’16:
Are you involved in any sort of diversity or identity group on campus? Then yes, this event is for you. It feels like we have the same goals but just don’t talk to each other, huh? Seems that if we came together to coordinate our efforts on campus we could do better work, right?
Join your fellow activists in a dialogue to identify shared goals and determine ways to collaborate throughout the year.
This event is going to be big. Delicious dessert will be served and brilliant brainstorming will happen. Don’t be the one stakeholder group on campus that misses out. Fill out this quick Google Form right now to sign up.

From Dana Leib ’14:
Are you interested in the law? Do you like telling people when you object to things? Do you enjoy commanding a room with sexy words like “probative” or “adjudicative”?
Then you should join the Wesleyan Mock Trial Team. We are a student-run organization that competes on a regional and even a national level against other university teams. As we construct cases,we discuss and form legal theories, take on witness roles, and lawyer up.
Whether you’re fluent in legalese or just love the Law and Order marathons, Mock Trial is a great way to develop your public speaking and critical thinking skills while gaining an understanding of the American legal system.
If you can’t make the informational meeting and/or want more information, contact dleib(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
Date: September 16th
Time: 7PM – 8PM
From Rebecca Koppel ’14 and Danny Blinderman ‘14:
To the Wesleyan Jewish Community,
This week marks the fourth and final time that I will begin a year at Wesleyan. I remember each new beginning fondly, as starting points to years full of new ideas and experiences. At the same time, they also stand out as moments of continuation and renewal for some of the most meaningful friendships and most amazing communities I have ever known.
