Lessons from a Life in Sex and Ministry

As an undergraduate at Wesleyan, Debra Haffner ’76 was a vocal activist for social justice and co-founder of Wesleyan’s first Women’s Center. Since graduation, Rev. Haffner has held leadership roles at Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, and other non-profit organizations. Most recently, she founded the Religious Institute, a multi-faith organization dedicated to advocating for sexual health, education, and justice in faith communities and society.

Rev. Haffner will talk about her career working for the rights of women and families, how to create and grow social impact organizations, and how a Wesleyan education prepares you to change the world. Lunch will be provided.

THESISCRAZY 2015: The “”"Procrastination”"” (Sex) Edition

481771_10151224732529870_761889112_nSo there’s that thing about Wesleyan being the horniest college, right? Well, part of that reputation might come from the fact that when busy seniors decide to pursue a year-long research project (re: thesis), most of them get a personal carrel in which to study/research/reach academic enlightenment. And when students hear about this simultaneously public and private space, the next question is easy: Have you had sex in it?

Thanks to a 1995 article from the Argus, it’s been a THESISCRAZY thing to ask you if you’ve been doing the boopity boop in your confined academic spaces. So if you’re a 2015er scrambling to wrap up what’s been a two-semester process, you received a survey a couple weeks ago about how you’ve been spending your time in your (or someone else’s) carrel. Out of the 97 carrel-having people doing theses this year, 33% responded to this bangin’ survey.

Let’s just say people really know how to get busy in their carrels. Find the results after the jump!
