Rho Epsilon Pi will again sell Spring Fling tanks to both benefit charity and make you look damn good on Foss Hill. They will be selling the tanks for $16 per shirt. A portion of the sales will go to supporting the purchase of mosquito nets to prevent women and children from getting malaria in Babgi, Southern Sudan. This small town sits right outside the capital, Juba, of Southern Sudan. The organization we’re using is run in part by the father of Orelia Jonathan ’15 and Geneva Jonathan ’15, the best freshmen twins in the ‘cac. More information about the organization from Orelia ’15 and a PayPal button after the jump!
Women and children are at high risk for getting infected by malaria. By providing them with nets, it will help to keep them safe. Each Mosquito net costs simply $5 dollars—in bulk though, they’re actually a lot less than that. This cause is truly special to my twin sister, Geneva, and me because Babgi is really close to where my father, Darius JonathanP ’15, was born in Juba, Southern Sudan. Both of us are half Sudanese, and a lot of our family still lives in Sudan. This summer, my dad will be taking a trip to Southern Sudan and will be bringing the mosquito nets we buy with the donations to the village of Babgi. We’re interested in starting a community service group to raise money for the cause. If anybody’s interested, please email ojonathan[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.
Lydia Rex ’14 and Roxy Capron ’14write in to invite you to a film screening of Miss Representation, sponsored by Rho Epsilon Pi and the Peer Health Advocates, this Thursday in Shanklin 107 at 8 p.m. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.
A message from the organizers:
In the media and political frenzy about this war on women, we feel it’s important to reaffirm our belief that men and women should be judged for their actions and words, rather than for how we look. Our hope in screening the film on campus remains that we can draw out and address the ways in which we undervalue women at Wesleyan and our communities at large. And thus, we can move forward to a world that does not discriminate on the basis of gender. The screening will be followed by a group discussion of the issues presented in the film.
The ladies of Rho Epsilon Pi have been selling pie in Usdan since last Thursday in an effort to raise money for Relay for Life. Today, they will sell pies for the last day until their pie eating contest on 4/20, ahem the day of Relay for Life. So now, you can combine two things you love: eating great pie and fighting to end cancer. Slices of pie are available for $2, while whole pies (8 slices) are available for $12. Trust me, you won’t want to miss these pies.So, stop by the tables in Usdan from 12 to 2 p.m. or from 5 to 7 p.m. today, and bring your cash!
The ladies of Rho Epsilon Pi want to make sure that neither your friends nor your significant other ends up feeling like Gretchen Weiners this Valentine’s Day. That’s why they’ll be selling Valentines in Usdan all this week. Oh, and also because the money raised will be donated toSHOFCO. So bring those dollar bills over to Usdan during lunch or dinner any day this week, and buy up all your Valentine’s Day Cards. The Valentine’s will be delivered (with candy!) to recipients’ wesboxes on Valentine’s Day next week. Make sure you stop by to send a Valentine to your friend, significant other, or sneaky secret crush!
Alex Cantrell ’14 and Rebecca Markell ’14 write in to let you know how you can help out spreading holiday cheer AND enjoy a delicious baked good, courtesy of the bakers of Rho Epsilon Pi and Alpha Epsilon Pi. Seems like their names were just too similar not to join forces for charity:
Rho Epsilon Pi and Alpha Epsilon Pi are partnering this week to raise money for children of the women at Hallie House for Women and Children. Please support our efforts to give these kids a delightful holiday season by stopping by in Usdan to buy some delicious baked goods.

You might have thought that the buzz on campus about Greek Life began and ended with the Betagate. Samantha Pop ’11, Grace Zimmerman ’13, Lucy Finn ’14, and Melody Oliphant ’13 have decided to prove otherwise with the formation of a new sorority on campus, Rho Epsilon Pi. Now, your head may be spinning with the notion of fanciful tales of brothel laws in Connecticut and the like. But if you’re interested in participating in this group, or just curious about what a sorority at Wesleyan might look like, then join us this Thursday at 9 p.m. in Albritton 311 to find out more information! More info about the impetus behind this new sorority on campus after our crest and the jump!
