On Saturday, December 10th from Noon onwards, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will be having a “Stuff the Net” fundraising/ toy drive in Freeman. Since there are several games happening that day, we hope to have a good amount of traffic coming through the Athletic Center. We ask that people donate one un-wrapped toy into one of two nets that will be in the main lobby and back lobby of Freeman. Those who can’t bring a toy will have the option of donating cash as well.
Samsara is Wesleyan’s South Asian Cultural Show!
