Our November Tipbox Roundup

Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 10.38.03 PM

Hear ye, hear ye: We have a couple of rad tips to share that we’ve collected over the last month! Check out our Tipbox and submit stuff that relates to Wesleyan, Middletown, or Wes alums.


1. Mima Good’s Video Release (from Tess Altman ’17)

Remember Raechel Rosen ’15? She like just graduated… she brought us super uncomfortable productions like Blow and Lodia.

Well, she has a new alter ego, + her name is Mima Good — a semi-fictional resurrected Salem witch. She exists on the internet here in song, gif, and story form.

And she just released a new single and video!

Acts of Heroism in a Snowpocalypse

This morning we received in our tipbox an account, from an anonymous reader, of a rather heroic rescue that took place late last night, during blizzard conditions:

Last night, a bunch of my friends and I saw a figure muddling through the blizzard. He collapsed in the snow, and did not get up. Julia Holewinski ’15, wearing just a sweater, immediately ran outside and hauled the man inside with some difficulty. He was clearly extremely intoxicated, and his eyelashes were frozen solid. We think his name is [removed] (class of ’14). If Julia hadn’t had the presence of mind and physical strength to drag him inside, he probably would have died in a snowdrift.

Besides applauding Holewinski for her courageous rescue, this seems like an opportune time to remind you that if you feel the need to get wasted during blizzard conditions (which is all fine and good), drink responsibly and don’t go wading through snow alone at night. If you spot an obviously smashed friend attempting to stumble home alone through snow drifts and heavy winds, walk with them or offer them your couch. Sorry to get all mom on you all of a sudden.

Speaking of snow rescues, pyrotechnics post this morning noted that some students (especially in Lo-Rise) are quite literally unable to open their front doors because of the Alaskan-style snow drifts.
