24-Hour Study Space Party

24-Hour Study Space

I still can’t believe we finally have a 24-hour study space. I am beyond ecstatic.

From Chloe Murtagh ’15 and the WSA Organization and External Affairs Committee:

There’s nothing worse than getting kicked out of sci li at 2am (except maybe procrastinating that hard). The former is now history, as the WSA is excited to present you with a new 24-hour study space!!

To celebrate, we’ll be devouring baked goods in our new all-day, all-night, always-productive work space!

Come by the glass room of sci li – finally accessible through the sci li lobby – this Wednesday night between 10pm and midnight to rejoice in the ability to put off papers until 2am!

Sponsored by the WSA and the Wesleyan Library.

When: Wednesday (January 30th), 10pm – midnight
Where: The 24-hour Study Space
Facebook event for all da biddies

It “Seams” the Poll’s Been Fixed: Vote for Sci Li Chairs

Let's try this voting thing again...

When we posted about the new chairs in Sci Li earlier this week, you readers were quick and eager to submit your votes via text or online. So eager, in fact, that you surpassed the polling system’s submission limit of 40 votes. Congrats! But do not despair: a new polling system has been installed, which means new numbers to text and codes to enter online.

The *new* codes for each amaze-tastic model are:

Swift: 17764
Puzzle: 17765
Reno: 17766

Text these codes to the (new!) number 650-515-3033 or enter them at the (new!) link here.

It’s unclear whether the votes from the previous system will be counted towards the final results or not, so if you still want your opinion to be heard, vote today! The deadline to submit your vote is midnight on Friday, October 12th.

View a bar graph of the results here.

Sci Li Would “Chairish” Your Vote: Seating Upgrades

If you’ve ever studied in Sci Li, you’re no doubt familiar with the “club chairs” that line the perimeter of the first floor. I use this term loosely because if you search “club chairs” on Google images, you will find something far fancier and “sit-by-the-fire-worthy” than what you may have pulled too many late-nighters in. The current wood-and-navy models sport a myriad of rips, mystery stains, and seat cushions like black holes.

To the delight of many, the library is now planning to replace the old chairs and is looking for student input to decide which of three options is preferred. For the next few weeks, stop by the entrance of Sci Li and see, touch, smell, hear, and taste the three potential new models for yourself.

Body Image Campaign

What do you love about your body? What does your body do for you?


By now you might have seen various posters around campus relating to the issues of bodies and body positivity. FemNet (The Feminist Network) would like you to think about your body and your relationship to it. These posters are meant to raise awareness of common (and uncommon) body issues and explore your understanding of what is lovable about your body and you.

Feel inspired by the posters? Have something to say? Send responses to the following questions to wesbody(at)gmail(dot)com.

What about your body isn’t normally appreciated by yourself or others?

What does your body do for you?

What can you do for your body?

What does your body mean to you?

What makes your body feel good?

How do you feel in your body?

We would love for everyone to respond to the following questions, or ask questions of your own… You can submit short stories, essays, poems, a few simple thoughts, quotes, song lyrics, artwork, or whatever you feel like. We will be flyering responses all over campus in a few weeks. Please put (CONFIDENTIAL) in the subject line, if you would prefer for your response not to be shared.
