Get Appointed to the WSA

Want to be on the WSA?  Here’s your chance, even if you didn’t win an election.  The WSA has a few open seats remaining, and is now accepting applications to be appointed to these committees.

To learn more about what each committee does, please visit the linked pages and their subpages.

To apply please send a 200-300 word letter, stating why you think you should sit on the WSA and which committee you would prefer to sit on if you are appointed, to wsa@wesleyan.edu no later than this Friday, the 23rd of September, at 9:00 AM. You must also sign up for an interview in the WSA office before noon that day. A sign up sheet will be available in the office starting tomorrow morning. Interviews for SBC will be conducted from 3:30PM-5:00PM.  Interviews for SAC and OEAC will be conducted from 2:00PM-3:30PM that same day. If this time does not work for you and you still wish to apply, notify the WSA by email immediately.

Diversifying Weekend Nightlife

From Jen Liebschutz ’11:

Don’t feel like drinking some Saturdays? Don’t drink at all? Not a huge fan of frat, dorm, or house parties?

Come to the Daniel Family Commons (third floor of Usdan) this Thursday to talk about diversifying weekend nightlife. The AOD Committee, Student Affairs Committee, WSA, and others are putting on a conversation about ideas for fun things to do on a given Friday or Saturday night that don’t involve alcohol or drugs. Learn about available resources, ways to turn YOUR ideas into actual events, meet other interested people, and eat a FREE DINNER from Typhoon!

Bring yourself, bring your friends, bring some ideas, and bring an appetite!

See you there!

Date:   Tomorrow, March 24
Time:   6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Place:  Daniel Family Commons

Sign the Standard of Proof Petition

Ever had a miscommunication with the SJB or felt that you were given an unfair hearing? If so, then you would probably be interested in hearing about what the WSA is working towards. Please read about our effort to raise the Standard of Proof used in our Student Judicial Process and help us achieve this fair standard by signing the petition and telling us about some of the experiences you have had with the SJB.

Over 300 students have already signed the petition and dozens have submitted cases of misrulings, but we need even more if we want change to happen. It only takes a few minutes—get involved and have your voice heard!

We have been working on this issue since the fall and strongly feel that it would improve our system at Wes. The basic idea behind this is increasing the level of certainty from slight (anywhere over 50%) to substantial (roughly 75% or higher). We feel that in a majority of cases, this is a matter of consistency.

If you have any questions or concerns, let us know! :)
