Hey! Snacks! And a discussion! From Sarah Kalish ’14:
Join members of Wesleyan Students for Disability Rights for a conversation about transitioning to college, resources on campus, and any questions you may have about disability/support services or student life at Wesleyan.
We also encourage current students from whatever background to join us to speak on their own experience at Wesleyan.
All are welcome! There will be snacks!
Date: Thursday, April 18, 2013 Time: 4:30 PM Place: 41 Wyllys Avenue, Rooms 110 and 112 Cost: Free!
Carina Kurban ’14 writes in about a film screening of an award-winning documentary happening TONIGHT:
Join WesSJP, Wesleyan Students for Justice in Palestine, for an incredible documentary: Roadmap to Apartheid. This is the first of three film screenings in the Palestinian Justice Film Series. There will be snacks!
More information from the website of the film: “In this award-winning documentary, the first-time directors take a detailed look at the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Narrated by Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple, Roadmap to Apartheid is as much a historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid in South Africa, as it is a film about why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them.”
Do you love to bake? Think you can create the yummiest cookie ever? In need of a break from midterms? Well you’re in luck!
Next Thursday 3/7, Brighter Dawns is hosting its second annual COOKIE CUP! The Cookie Cup is an event where Wesleyan students can sample dozens of cookies made by a bunch of teams (including yours!) and vote on the most creative/most delicious/most aesthetically appealing, etc. Basically, it’s an excuse for us all to eat our weight in cookies.
Right now, we’re looking for teams – of however many people you want – to bake! Don’t be afraid to get creative with your baked goods. (Last year’s winner was the “Inception Cookie” – a cookie inside a cookie – and it was legendary). Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams!
To sign up a team or receive more information, email sbhalobasha@wes. Even if you are not interested in baking, join us at the Usdan Cafe at dinnertime on Thursday, 3/7 to participate in the eating part of the Cookie Cup! Proceeds benefit Brighter Dawns, an organization that works to improve health conditions in the slums of Bangladesh.
Date: Sign up now, compete on Thursday, 3/7 Time: Contest is from 6-9 pm Place: Usdan Cafe

Remember that party you went to? The one where you saw that girl in that overwhelmingly sparkly dress-tube-thing? Or that boring riveting lecture on fruit flies where you saw that guy in the cool band t-shirt? As the weather gets warmer, it’s been really tough to go sit on the hill where everyone is dressed more ironically more interestingly than you. Fortunately, Reese Sy ’13 is a problem solver, and has given you the opportunity to steal everyone else’s clothes:
Need to spring clean? Don’t want to pack up all your old clothes? Tired of your old wardrobe? Want to mix it up? Come to the 200 Church Street Clothing Swap!
Date: Saturday, May 5th Time: 1 pm – 4 pm Place: 200 Church Cost: Swap is a 1:1 ratio. Also, clothes must be cleaned (we want to wear you, not smell you)
What’s more, unclaimed clothes (aka sweater vests) will be donated to Middletown Goodwill.
