Wes-Gilead Alliance Info Session!

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

Us and Them: a Discussion on Middletown and Wesleyan Relations

From Janika Oza ’15:

Have you ever wondered about the relationship between Wesleyan and the Middletown community? Are you involved in Middletown through community service or work? Are you concerned about the ways in which Wesleyan does (or doesn’t) facilitate interaction with the community?
Come to an open workshop and discussion, hosted by the WesDEFs, to examine our relationship with the Middletown community and to explore positive ways to engage with our neighbours and break down the barriers between us.

Date: Wednesday, November 6
Time: 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys, Room 112
