Attention Prefrosh (and other Wesleyan Students)!

for Jummah (Friday) Services and a reception afterwards. You’ll get to
meet current Muslim students as well as our Muslim Chaplain, Imam

We didn’t witness this mischief, but our Foss Chill correspondents report from the front lines.
“Man in gorilla costume chases banana across Foss, runs behind Usdan, comes back and three bananas are now chasing him!” wrote an unsuspecting bystander. “It was epic. The bananas tackled the gorilla at the bottom of the hill!”
Adam Johnson ’14 sent in some cellphone-quality photographic evidence. Have pictures or video of your own? Direct them to us at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org.
Welcome to Wesleyan, prefrosh. Have fun, but know your limits.

What’s good prefrosh? Yeah, I see you coming to Wesleying before reading through any packet the Admissions office may have given you.
Roth welcomes you on Andrus jk you’re not at UCSB
Wesleyan has an almost scary amount of things you can check out for the next few days, so whether you’re an ED student with an unofficial host or someone who’s probably going to Brown but came here to skip school, take it all in.
Just to note a few highlights from the awesome lineup of events, today will feature performances including poetry by WeSLAM in 200 Church, Second Stage’s Eurydice, and the Asian culture show Mabuhay. Tomorrow includes Battle of the Bands, an Open Mic at 200 Church, and an a cappella concert in Olin. Different majors and departments are holding open houses. Most importantly, ITS Helpdesk will have drop-in hours all day; take advantage of this golden opportunity.
Here are the full schedules for today, Thursday, and Friday. Enjoy the nice weather and party hard.
HTML overlord Tobias Butler ’13 sends in video evidence of synth-pop duo Tanlines’ compulsively danceable ’80s nostalgia-fest in the WestCo Courtyard yesterday afternoon. The Brooklyn-based outfit took the stage after sets by tried-‘n-true Wes bands Lyon’s Den (read: not Lioness), North Paw, Yeoman’s Omen, Treasure Island, Spring Fling openers Peace Museum, and Grand Father. The clip depicts a whole lotta bouncin’ happening to the beat of Tanlines’ minor hit “Real Life,” which appears on the group’s just released debut LP Mixed Emotions. High five to the weather, too—there’s something to be said for the first sunny, uninterrupted ZonkerHarris day since when I was a prefrosh.
Be sure to check out 2:03, when the whole front section of the crowd jumps in unison, and don’t miss A-Batte’s freakish arm choreography at approximately 00:45. Scroll on for a few more images from Tanlines’ and Grand Father’s spirited sets at Zonker Harris Day 2012.
Come see some awesome astronomical objects tonight at Van Vleck Observatory! We’ll be operating the 16-inch reflecting telescope and maybe the colossal 20-inch refracting telescope too. Stop in for a few minutes and you might see some planets, nebulae, stars (duh), and maybe a galaxy or two. Bring your pre-frosh!
Local Alan Rickman understudy PiersGelly ’13 sends word about a titillating event happening in Espwesso the Usdan Multiporpoise Room tomorrow for the benefit of you and your love-hungry prefrosh, courtesy of the Wesleyan Ampersand and the WSA:
Picture this. You’ve signed up to host a prefrosh, which seemed like a great idea at the time, but there’s only so many times you can say “All the people here are really into whatever they’re doing, you know?” It’s Saturday afternoon. Your prefrosh is done pretending to be too cool for the mid-day activities, and there are still a few hours until the real shit starts at 8. Fortunately, the Wesleyan Ampersand is hosting prefrosh blind dating!
Your prefrosh can meet other prefrosh in an intimate setting, complete with food and friendly Ampersand staff! This is great because they can really talk to each other, instead of just rattling off the whole Whereareyoufromiswesleyanyourfirstchoicewhereelseareyoulookingdoyouknowwhatyouwanttomajorin thing. BRING YOUR PREFROSH TO AMPERSAND AND WSA PREFROSH BLIND DATING AT TIME IN PLACE.
Date: Tomorrow, April 14 Time: 5:45 – 7:30 pm Place: Usdan Multiporpoise Room Cost: ain’t no cost for love, brah
