Let it be known that at approximately 4:21 PM on March 31st, 2021, the entire student body of Wesleyan University could be heard giving a collective sigh of relief.
Why, you may ask? Well I am pleased to announce (drum roll please)…
They’re vaccinating all on-campus students.
It’s just a quick trip to Wesportal and a click on the bright red “Schedule COVID-19 Vaccination” at the top of your screen. From there fill out the form and presto, you’re good to go! Now all you have to do is wait in agony for the next 24 days, 16 hours, and 12 minutes!
But hey, who’s counting?
So hop to it, and happy vaccinating my friends!
Read the text of the all campus email after the break:
For five days we fought. For five days we did not let go. To that logo we threw every meme they had. With every drop of spit in their bodies we shouted at the top of their lungs, not for a second pulling away from the mission at hand. And on the sixth day Roth declared it no more. No more would the logo loom strange over us. Our old friend the “W” reinstated once again.
SO LET THE FESTIVITIES BEGIN! Let the second wave of memes spread across the land. The message has indeed been received, and with it we remember the power of our voices. We mustn’t stop now though.
Please remember that $1 million was still spent on this redesign. Even though the logo is being reverted back it doesn’t mean there are issues still on this campus that the $1M would have much better served. Don’t let this little victory distract from the greater issues that loom large over our experience here both as current students and soon to be alums.
In exciting news, however, Roth, in his all school email announcing the retirement of the “new” logo, stated the administration anticipates opening up the process to accept student designs. This is incredibly exciting news, and as stated in our article that came out yesterday, may actually cause the new design to be an accurate representation of the way we as students feel about our school.
