Daniele Packard ’13 and Grace Zimmerman ’13 write in with a way for members of the Class of 2013 to legally imbibe with their classmates, promote greater access to Wesleyan in support of need blind admissions through scholarship fundraising, and enjoy some good ol’ class camaraderie out in the vibrant Middletown nightlife scene:
As graduation approaches alarmingly fast, it becomes ever more important to cherish your classmates, appreciate Wesleyan for everything it has to offer, and enjoy your dwindling time in Middletown. To this effect, the Senior Gift Committee is hosting our annual Senior Night Out, taking place this Thursday, April 25th! The four restaurants hosting SWAG for the evening are La Boca, Mondo, Iguanas Ranas and The Nest, whom have all generously agreed to offer drink and food specials for all SWAG donors this year.
Not a donor yet? Don’t worry – there’s still time to make a gift. Swing by any of our tabling locations this week to make a gift and pick up your wristband, or make a gift online and we’ll put the bracelet in your box. If you’ve already donated, you’ll find your wristband in your mailbox. To receive food and drink discounts you must obtain a SWAG designated wrist band. On behalf of the entire committee, we’d like to remind everyone to treat all of the establishments we visit and people we meet during the night out (and in life) with respect!
More information about drink and food specials, the night’s schedule, and tabling locations where you can pick up a wristband this week before the event!
Date: Thursday, April 25th
Time: 8 p.m. till 1 a.m.
Place: Iguanas Ranas, La Boca, Mondo, The Nest
Suggested Donation: $5
President Roth’s supposedly been off campus lately on vacation, but it seems that he’s caught up pretty quickly. His latest Huffington Post piece definitely makes it seem that he’s aware of the activist events going on around campus lately.:
I was an undergraduate in the seventies, and my education included more than a little protest and activism. I was aware that my liberal arts school had a reputation for activism, and I was proud to be part of it. I returned to Wesleyan University as president more than four years ago, and even though now some of this activism is directed against me, I still take pride in this tradition of alma mater.
It’s subtle, but it seems like Roth might approve of activism even when he is the target of it (WSA Meeting @ Beta, Rally at Trustee’s Meeting). The statement is too indirect to tell whether that means Roth will respond positively to the student demands, but he seems to be actually encouraging the activism rather than shutting it down. So go put up your tents, sign your petitions, and rally in front of your trustees, ‘cuz Roth likes it.
Also, in case anyone was wondering how to explain their certificate program to their potential employers/parents, Roth sums it up as an “interdisciplinary minor.”

From the Senior Committee:
With Spring in the air, our Graduation is a few weeks away. We have all heard and contributed to the Senior Gift. With a generous gift from the Alums of 2001 we will be able to constitute a Class of 2010 Scholarship to be awarded to an incoming freshman.
This Friday, the Tuition Transition Day, gives us the opportunity to thank our parents and the generous alumni who provide financial support for every student at Wesleyan. Come find the Senior Class Officers and the Senior Gift Managers in Usdan between 12 to 2 on Friday. Learn more about the Class of 2010 Scholarship and pick up your free class t-shirts.
