Rho Ep Information Session

rho epFrom Rho Ep:

Do you identify as female? Are you curious about Greek life? Do you want to meet other women at Wesleyan? Then you should consider rushing Rho Epsilon Pi, Wesleyan’s only sorority.

We’ll have two information sessions to let you know what we’re all about before the formal rush process begins. So come on by to 41 Wyllys, Room 112 to chat with us and determine whether you might be interested! All grade levels are welcome!

We’ll host info sessions on Tuesday, February 9th @ 8:15pm & Wednesday, February 10th @ 7:30pm. We will be covering the history of Rho Ep, the rush process, how we are trying to redefine sorority, and more! If you are at all interested in Rho Ep and what we do, this is the best way to find out.

If you can’t make it to either meeting or have questions about the sorority or rush process, please send a message to rhoeprush[at]gmail[dot]com.

Help us shape our sorority into an organization that our entire student body can take pride in at Wesleyan. Rho Epsilon Pi is open to any Wesleyan student who identifies as female.

Rho Ep & DKE present Cupid’s Crush Cans


PSA from Alessandra Cervera ’16:

I’ve got a crush on you.

If you have a crush on me too, you’ll buy me a Crush can.

Rho Epsilon Pi and Delta Kappa Epsilon are teaming up this week to bring you Crush can Valentines grams. There’s no better way to tell that special someone in your life that you think they’ve got a great personality (plus orange soda!!).

Cans cost $1 each and come with a label so you can ~*personalize*~ it to your liking (maybe a lil love note?). All proceeds will then go to the North End Action Team, right here in Middletown. If you want to find out more about their community projects, click here.

Here’s how the grams will work:

Invisible War Film Screening

Rho Epsilon Pi go-getters, Lucy Finn ’14 and Jaxie Friedman ’15, write in about an amazing Oscar nominated documentary that will be screened on campus TONIGHT, so don’t miss out.

We will screen the incredible Academy Award Nominated film, The Invisible War, an investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape of female soldiers within the US military. Directed by Kirby Dick, the film was recently nominated for an Oscar. Following the screening, author Helen Benedict will give a talk on her research on sexual violence within the US military. Two of her books, The Lonely Soldier and Sand Queen will be sold and signed at the event as well.

Women in the US Military are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than shot by enemy fire.

Come be a part of the conversation. Brought to you by Rho Epsilon Pi with the help of the SBC, the FGSS Department, the Center for Film Studies, Wesleyan Women in Film, and Womanist House.

Date: TONIGHT, April 18th
Time: 6:30 p.m.

AEPi, Rho Ep Ask for Consideration Before Student/Administrator Committee; Roth Says No

You may have heard of the controversy surrounding AEPi and Rho Epsilon Pi’s joint petition to be considered for a spot as a program house. Essentially, 230 Washington, previously Interfaith house, is opening up to become a new program house. Anyone can propose a new theme, given that you get signatures of interested peoples to live in it. Applications are due to ResLife this Friday, November 30.

The issue is that Roth has unilaterally banned AEPi & Rho Ep from applying and presenting their proposal to the committee of students and administrators. Regardless of their specific missions, AEPi and Rho Ep feel that “this is discriminatory and a violation of the program housing application process.” (Full quotation from petition after the jump.)

Let’s Talk About Sex

Open House, WesWell, Rho Ep, Womanist House, Salt-N-Pepa (in absentia), and Izzy Rode ’14 invite you to talk about all the good things and the bad things: 

Many Wesleyan students have sex.
Many don’t.
Some think about sex all the time.
Some experiment with sex.
Some just wanna cuddle.
Some have queer sex.
Some feel they aren’t having enough sex.
Some feel they have too much.
Some people just have no clue what to think about sex anymore.

Come and talk about sex and sexuality at Wesleyan in an open discussion featuring Tanya Purdy of WesWell.

Sponsored by Open House, Womanist House, Rho Epsilon Pi, and WesWell.

Date: Tuesday, November 13
Time: 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Place: PAC 004
Cost: Free
