Repost: A Very Wesleying Recrootment

This is a repost of our fall recruitment post. Same rules apply. Our blog could be your life.

Hey, readers. Wesleying’s pretty low-staffed lately (update: just kidding, we have some underclassmen now), and to make matters worse, a whole bunch of us are graduating this coming May. So it goes. Wesleying underwent a pretty wild generational shift back in 2010, when Sheek exited and handed over the reigns, and as it finishes up its seventh academic year, it’s going to have to weather another one in 2013. That’s where you step in.

We bloggers exited the WiFi confines of our cyberspace existence yesterday in September to get some sunlight and schmooze in flesh-and-blood form at the Student Activities Fair. Frankly, it was pretty weird. People don’t really think of Wesleying as a group of humans, as normal students—we’re just a thing that’s out there, online. And it turns out there are a lot of freshmen reading. One girl bragged that Wesleying is pretty much why she applied ED. Another declared, “I’ve been reading this blog for so long, and I’m only a freshman!” Another claimed to have read every Wesleying post, which is pretty impressive, considering there are over 11,000. We’ll be materializing again tomorrow, and here’s your chance to keep the blog alive.

There’s a whole lot of text below the jump, so here’s the short of it: Wesleying is recruiting. We’ll be having a formal recruitment meeting tomorrow, February 2, at 3:30 p.m. in 41 Wyllys, Room 112. We’re looking for bloggers, journalists, writers, photographers, interviewers, social media types (help run our Twitter!), homespun Wes historians, videographers, internet addicts, Photoshop fiends, and web design wizards—whatever. Frosh especially welcome. If you love Wesleying and want to help make it the weird, irreverent, and colorful media space it has become—or if you just like blogging in your underwear—please stop by. In the immortal words of The Great Sheek, “All you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently, and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.”

Zombies vs. Humans: The End is Nigh

Zombies have been periodically threatening this fine campus since 2006 and probably earlier. They have been featured in the Hartford Courant, in a New Media Lab documentary by Daniel Sullivan ’13, and, err, on the door to Weshop. It’s been some time since the last outbreak, but this time it’s 2012. Jessie Loo ’14 writes:

The apocalypse is at hand! The dead walk the earth, and the fight for humanity commences.

Zombies vs. Humans is a campus-wide game of tag, pitting armband-wearing humans against headband-wearing zombies. Humans turn into zombies if tagged, and can defend themselves with Nerf guns, marshmallows, or socks.

To sign up, email wesleyanzombies(at)gmail(dot)com by April 9th with your name and whether or not you’d like to be an original zombie. For more information, join the Facebook event or check out the rules.
