In the Company of Others and Unspeakable Acts: Performers Needed!

The New Student Orientation program is still seeking performers for In the Company of Others 2011 and Unspeakable Acts 2011!

In the Company of Others is an event that lets current Wes students share the amazing experiences that they have had with new students. It is an important event for incoming students, as they get to see first hand some of the wonderful people with whom they’ll share a space. In the Company of Others is a time when four to five students share their experiences with new students in the hopes of sparking conversation regarding what is means to live in a diverse community. If you’d like to be one of those awesome students this year, then please complete the interest form found at this link! Students who have already expressed interest need not reapply.

Unspeakable Acts and Know the Line is looking for performers who identify as male. Unspeakable Acts is a series of skits addressing sexual assault, relationship violence and alcohol issues that WesWELL sponsors during New Student Orientation. The performance is a powerful introduction to sexual assault and alcohol use on campus and provides a starting point for further discussion for this difficult but important topic. For more about Unspeakable Acts, read past the jump:
