The WSA will be hosting the second annual Spring Student Group Fair on Friday, February 8th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm in Beckham Hall. This fair will be an opportunity both for students to learn about and sign up for new students groups and for student groups to promote themselves to prospective members. All students are encouraged to come! Since all the groups at the fair will be open to new members, the fair will be a great opportunity to start getting involved in the community.
Due to the spatial constraints of Beckham Hall, there is limited availability for student groups, and we will not be able to accommodate every student group that wants a booth at the fair. This fair is geared towards active student groups that will offer a large role for new members in the spring semester. If you are a student group leader, in order to apply for a place in the fair, please fill out the following form (can be accessed only through Wesleyan e-mail) by Friday, February 1st at 11:59 pm:
Note that you must be either a registered student group or have filled out the student group online registration form to be eligible for a table at the fair. For information on how to register a student group and access the student group online registration form, go here: http://wsa.wesleyan.edu/groups/register/. If you feel that your student group does not need a booth at the fair, but you would like your group to be publicized in the fair brochure, please e-mail email@example.com and send one sentence about your group.
We will get back to groups by Sunday, February 3rd with a decision. Any student can attend the fair, and only student groups need to register. We look forward to seeing you at the fair!
Best, Zachary Malter, WSA President

A few things from your loving WSA…
First, a reminder about WSA winter elections: to run, you must hand in your petition with 25 signatures at or before the mandatory candidates meeting on Thursday at 8:30pm, in Usdan 110. See email dated 11/28 for the petition.
Also, the WSA has collaborated with students to produce surveys on important student issues, sexual health and food. These surveys will help determine areas for improvement in terms of both sexual health resources and food quality. Responses to both surveys are completely anonymous and confidential.
Sexual Health: HERE
Wesleyan Food: HERE
Thanks, and good luck with the end of the semester!
Also, take our semester survey: it’s only 15 short questions, and your input informs the issues that the WSA takes up next year. All class years can take the survey.
Lastly, we have our WSA Constitution up for approval along with a description of the changes we have made. You can also read about the changes here. Again, everyone is able to vote on changes.
As always, let us know if you have any questions.

When you were a frosh didn’t you wish you had someone to show you the ropes and walk you through getting
involved with different activities on campus? Now you can be that person for an incoming first year student
and help make their transition to college life that much easier!
The WSA in coordination with SALD is starting the Cardinal Connect: First Year Student
Social Connection Program for the upcoming year. We need rising juniors and seniors to
volunteer to be paired with incoming freshmen to serve as social and extra-curricular
resources. The goal is to help freshmen get involved with life here at Wesleyan more
easily by providing a formal connection with an experienced upperclassman. You would be
expected to meet with your freshman once per month to chat and help them out. Please fill
out and submit this form by May 20th.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at email@example.com
EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE! wsa.wesleyan.edu/voting (Seniors, you can vote, too.) We are halfway through the election; here are the voting stats so far –
Frosh : 265 Sophs : 203 Juniors : 252
If you haven’t voted, vote NOW. Also, if you are interested in being a part of the WSA next year, run for class rep. You can get a petition in the WSA office, or print one here.
