Wes Kids Did Cool Shit Over Spring Break


We are (only) a week back from break, so hopefully everyone’s stopped asking what you did during it. These questions can be genuine…or loaded and empty. They can also be opportunities for class privilege to shine strong. However, every year, a few student groups and Wes departments help facilitate some truly dope spring break trips that bring students from around campus together and get them out of central Connecticut for a few days. Doing spring break with a student group or academic department often lifts organizational (and sometimes financial) burdens off of individual students and also tends to be hella fulfilling and really fun.

So, we’ve reached out to a few groups who did cool shit over break and put together a roundup post of some cool Wes spring breaks. We apologize to any thesis writers who may have been here all break nibbling on a Twizzler in their thesis carrel every day, but we promise we’ll make it up to you. But for now, take a look at these folks’ fun times:

Unitarian Universalist Potluck

Acclaimed stand-up comic Emily Kianka ’13 offers up some jokes:

Q: Why did the UU cross the road?
A: To support the chicken in its search for its own path.

Oh, and a Unitarian Universalist event worth exploring tomorrow evening:

Do you enjoy exploring personal beliefs in the context of a supportive, spiritual community? Do you like sitting around a table and engaging in friendly debate about whether or not your religion is in fact a religion? Do you drink more coffee than is necessary?

This Sunday (September 18th) is the Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry’s (UUCM) first potluck of the year! Whether or not you were raised UU, still identify as a UU, or simply want to learn about a religion that probably confused you when it was first explained by your friend on the elementary school playground, come to socialize, eat wonderful food, and learn about Unitarian Universalism and the UUCM!
