From Amelia Tatarian ’13:
Queer retreat is a day-long adventure to a location off-campus where we’ll get to know each other, relax, talk about what’s on our minds, and have lots of fun. This is open to any and all queers at Wesleyan and will be a great chance to meet new people and get away for a little while! We’re really excited about it, and you should be too!
If you’re at all interested and want to know more, email atatarian(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
Place: we’re meant to be together
But actually, email atatarian(at)wesleyan(dot)edu for more details.
From Kiara Williams-Jones ’12 and the Women of Color Collective:
The Retreat is an annual tradition put on by the Women of Color House & the Collective. We will meet at Usdan at 10:45 AM on Saturday and return to campus by brunch time on Sunday. Transportation & meals will be provided; you will need to bring blanket/sleeping bag, pillow, and an overnight bag.
This is an amazing chance to chill and meet women of color across all the class years and to have some real conversations outside of school’s stressful atmosphere. If you’ve never been before, ask around. Someone you know has been. Even better, it’s free.
If you are interested, it’s not too late! Please sign the form here
Date: Saturday, January 28th – Sunday, January 29th 2012
Time: Meet at 10:45 AM
Place: Usdan –> Camp Jewell
