From gentleman, scholar, and hallmate Adam Rashkoff ’13, who is strangely definitely not pictured in the image he sent in:
Are you passionate about planners? Nutty for note-taking? Do study strategies psych you up? (Sorry, I’ll stop.)

With about 24 hours to go before the end-of-theses party begins, a moment many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived. You saw them going all around campus doing… weird stuff. Some of you may have even been coerced into dancing on tables in Exley. It was for a purpose, and here it is.
The Peer Advisors are back. Only this time, they’re in a music video. And with a bit more… sex tests? Enjoy, and stay safe get back to work.
If you feel inspired, get in touch with a Peer Advisor by emailing peeradvisors[at]lyris[dot]wesleyan[dot]edu.
This Tuesday at 7PM (aka tomorrow) in 41 Wyllys (aka “Squash Building” right by Usdan) Room 112, there will be an insightful First Year Focus event where you can ask all of your questions regarding the Pre-Reg process – which started today – and help you start thinking about the major declaration process (never too early!).
Speakers include: Dean of the Class of 2015 Noel Garrett, Professor Robert Lane of the Biology Dept., Professor Andrea Patalano of the Psych Dept, and numerous peer advisors.
Last, but certainly not least: there will be FREE MONDO PIZZA and a raffle where you can win Mondo gift cards!
