3. "Worth & Measure" PERFORMING ARTS THESIS PRODUCTION The cast and crew are proud to announce this fall?s Senior Thesis Production, "Worth & Measure", directed by Jessica Bland. Based on interviews from Wells College students, faculty, staff, and alums, "Worth & Measure" is a devised theatre piece that depicts the deep connections that exist in the Wells community, and how these relationships grow and change over the years. Worth & Measure immerses its audience in a night of grim celebration, centering on a group of soon-to-be-graduating seniors and their hopes and fears on moving away from Wells. As they question their experiences, they ask us ? the audience ? what it will have meant to have been a part of this community, what it?ll mean to leave, and whether or not we can box these experiences up and pack them away into the dark.

Worth & Measure will play in Wells College Barler Auditorium on Friday, November 30th, and Saturday, December 1st. House opens at 7:00PM, and the show starts at 7:30PM. Please note that this performance includes profanity, depictions of drug use, and mature themes. It is not recommended for people under the age of 17. Admission is free.

4. Attention Students!

The Office of Admissions is offering $10 Dining Dollars to the student that posts the best pictures and description of their J-Term experience on the Wells College Class of 2017 Group page on Facebook.

3. Do you have some extra winter clothes or blankets? If you do, donate them to the people who really need them this winter! Dream Catalyst has organized a clothing drive so that the homeless and displaced can have something to keep them warm through this frigid winter. We will be holding the drive until about December 8 so that people can go home and bring the extra winter clothes and blankets. Sweaters, coats, blankets, mittens, gloves, scarves, socks, pants, and any other warm clothing will be highly appreciated!

The boxes will be located in front of Faculty Parlors, Dodge Main Lounge, Leach Main Hallway, GP Main Hallway, Weld Main Hallway, and Macmillan lobby!

We will be donating all of the stuff we collect to whoever will be needing it this winter, which means that it may be multiple charities and locations.

If you have any questions, want more information, or want to join the club, feel free to contact me at sleung@wells.edu
