Do you hate capitalism? Love Bernie Sanders? Just realized that everything you know about capitalist democracy is a lie? Haven’t come to that realization yet but are interested in learning why?
Come to Wesleyan Democratic Socialists‘ first club meeting of the YEAR!!! we will be discussing Bernie’s political revolution + how we can continue it, our missions + goals for this year, and maybe even sharing some memes! ha :+) (we might have snacks but we also might not! either way please join us.)

For those of you in our audience not planning on working on Wall Street after graduation, there’s a good chance you’re footing the bill for a good amount of student loans (hooray for the free market!).
To call attention to this unfortunate reality, Wesleyan Democratic Socialists are sponsoring a number of student debt related events and actions this week, including a petition-drive (find them in Usdan tomorrow! or sign it on the interwebz) requesting Sallie Mae “forgive all student debt after 5 years of payments” and “eliminate all interest on student loans” as well as a screening of Default: The Student Loan Documentary.
