Please respond by Wednesday, November 25th (Thanksgiving break). Underclassmen preferred.

Job Description and Application: 

This is a training position that prepares you to work as a barista at Espwesso the following semester. Baristas at Espwesso are responsible for making drinks, taking suggested per-drink donations, and cleaning and maintaining the cafe space. As a barback, you will work one to two 9pm-11pm shifts a week. You will be working during our busy periods, at the same time as a barista, and will be responsible for working the register station, brewing drip coffee and anything else the barista needs so that they can make drinks as fast as possible.

You will receive 3-5 hrs of mandatory paid training from the cafe manager(s) over the course of the semester. Satisfactory completion of a semester’s work as a barback will make you eligible to become a barista, which will involve a raise and the requirement of working at least one 5 hour shift a week.

Unofficial Orientation Series: Eating and Drinking at Wes

*This post is an updated version of the Eating and Drinking installment of last year’s Orientation Series*

Eating and drinking is a necessity for all living beings, even during your hazy college days. While we all have to adjust our food standards from delicious home-cooked meals to university food, trust me, it could be worse. Wesleyan has many options for dining that you can enjoy regardless of your dietary orientation. Wesleyan was chosen the most vegan-friendly small US school by PETA, and our friends at the Mongolian Grill are always willing to cook-up a chicken tortilla topped with cheese if it’s protein that you want.

This is a part of the Unofficial Orientation Series 2013 to remind you to eat your veggies.

Procrastination Destination: Cheese or Font?

Good morning Wesleyan, and good luck with midterms! Here is a mid-semester procrastination destination I am enjoying as I actually eat (gasp) breakfast this morning: Cheese or Font?

It’s very simple: is Helvetica a cheese or a font? Now…what about Acanthus? Or Kenafa? Or the surprisingly conventional-sounding…Finn?

I can't think of any alt-texts that aren't totally cheesy...

And just in case you’re too set on becoming a font of knowledge on this topic, the website’s creators have helpfully also created Monotask (to be launched soon), to help you feta get a move on with your work and brie be focused. Hang in there, fall break’s just round the corner!
