Class of 2024 Common “Snow-ment” 3/25 @ 5:00pm

Friday, March 25, 5:00pm
Memorial Chapel

After the 2024 class photo on Foss Hill, enjoy a mid-semester celebration of music, dance, comedy, food, and fun featuring: 

Interval Notation

Circa 3022 ~ We are Interval Notation – a ragtag posse of wasteland wanderers searching the desolate plains of what was once Middletown, CT for the elusive Perfect Tritone. On our journey we’ll play all types of music from indie to jazz to r&b to rock. We take a guerrilla approach to gigging, playing both originals and covers because we’ll do whatever it takes to find the Perfect Tritone.

Gag Reflex

Gag Reflex is Wesleyan’s oldest long-form improv group. This year we are celebrating our 30th anniversary! We perform long-form improv in the Armando style, meaning that all of our improvised scenes are inspired by a monologue told at the beginning of our shows. We are so excited to perform at this event and celebrate the Class of 2024!

Belle Brown

Belle is a senior stand up comic part of Hysterics and Awkward Silence. She recently got a bad haircut which, luckily is providing lots of comedy content.

Mimi Kim

I’m Mimi (they/them), class of 2024 and I’m from Atlanta, GA. I have music out on all streaming platforms & bandcamp by my artist name Babebee. I recently released an album and an EP. I produce and write my own music and I’m a prospective film major. I’m passionate about the connection of community through audio/visual.

Left AirPod, Right Ear

Left AirPod, Right Ear is a new group playing covers in the style of established bands such as Scary Pockets and Vulfpeck. We generally play funk, pop, and soul covers from the likes of Ms. Lauryn Hill and Ariana Grande, as well as some pop rock from artists like Paramore. We’re looking forward to having a great time and making some beautiful music! You’ve not heard anything like it before, and the talent in the group is unforgettable. Anais Preller, Haden Embry, Nathan Weisbrod, and Noah King serve 100% vibes in a set that you won’t forget.

EBBL

Funky tunes from Emma Bella, backed by the boys Noah and Nathan.

Student Ombuds

This semester we are launching a Student Ombuds program at Wesleyan, which is an initiative inspired and informed by student voices.

The Student Ombuds are available to talk with students about your concerns related to experiences in the classroom, with your athletic team, or within other parts of your academic and campus life at Wesleyan.  Each Ombud serves as a neutral and confidential peer resource focused on empowering students to successfully navigate the institution and advocate for yourselves in moments of conflict.

Here’s just a few of the ways Student Ombuds can offer support:

  • Serve as a private, confidential thought partner for students considering options for resolving an issue
  • Hold a safe and supportive conversational space, simply listening and serving as an impartial sounding board
  • Provide insight on managing challenging conversations
  • Share information about campus resources
  • Explain institutional policies and processes, including those regarding how to make a formal complaint to the University
  • Communicate any observed patterns of concern to university leadership

The Student Ombuds partner with and are supported by Dr. April Ruiz, Dean for Academic Equity, Inclusion, & Success.

Students can connect with any of the individual Ombuds they wish, or they can email studentombud@wesleyan.edu to reach out to the full team and to be assigned to any Ombud whose availability matches theirs.

Our Student Ombuds stand ready to support you throughout the academic year.

Class of 2024 Campus Tours

Greetings Class of 2024,

This past year has been difficult in many ways for all Wesleyan students, but the Class of 2024 is unique in that many students will be coming to campus for the first time as sophomores, and others who were able to be on campus couldn’t get to know the real Wes in a typical year.

Upperclassmen have volunteered to host modified “campus tours” for members of the Class of 2024 during WesWOW (Sept 6th-Sept 12th)! Your upperclassmen tour guides can show you all the best places to know about on campus! Sign up on the Excel sheet below if you would like to take a walk through Wesleyan and learn about it from another student’s perspective and make upperclassmen connections!

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tQVIj0-y6gwRtMIslDZiTAGEFZGHp570LBGT0PSvfWM/edit?usp=sharing

We will be capping each tour at 5 students per group, so if there are already 5 names listed, please sign up for another time. The designated meetup location for the tours is in front of North College, on the side facing High St. The last day to sign up will be Sept 4th!!

If you have any questions, feel free to email schang@wesleyan.edu or hallisonway@wesleyan.edu.
