Join us for our 2nd annual 5K for Brighter Dawns and help us improve health conditions in the slums of Bangladesh! Registration is $10 per person,  and pre-registration is strongly encouraged and can be completed online at our website: http://brighterdawns.org/5k. Check-in at Long Lane Farm will begin at 10:30AM, and the race will start promptly at 11AM. Directions can be found on our website. T-shirts and tote bags can be purchased on the day of the event for $10 and $15, respectively. Walk, jog or run with us to give impoverished people in Bangladesh the opportunity to live healthier lives!

Brighter Dawns is a non-profit organization committed to improving health conditions in slums in Bangladesh. Although we have been operating for just over a year, with the help of generous supporters across the country, Brighter Dawns was able to complete its first project in the summer of 2011, constructing 15 wells, 20 latrines, and 3 bathrooms and distributing sanitary kits to provide clean water and sanitary conditions to over 5,000 slum residents of Ward 12, Khalishpur, Bangladesh. However, there are still thousands of people in Ward 12 who are placed at risk of deadly water-borne diseases every day simply because they lack access to potable water and sanitary facilities. Through the help of our donors and partners, we hope to expand our project to provide all of Ward 12 with equal access to these necessities, reducing disease and generating hope for a healthier tomorrow.

Commencement is just around the corner and graduation regalia is now available for purchase at Broad Street Books.

The cost for a Bachelor’s Cap and Gown is $39.00 and includes your mortar board, gown, and tassel. The packages are sized according to height.  Quantities by size are based on expected number of graduates and historical sales.

The earlier you come in, the more likely you are to get the exact size you need. In case you wondered, all Bachelor’s recipients wear red here at Wesleyan.

Monday through Friday 8 AM to 8 PM
Saturday and Sunday     9 AM to 5 PM.
Closed Easter Sunday.

Students, student groups, alumni, community members, faculty and staff facilitate sessions in their area of interest or expertise. Sessions focus on leadership skills that may be applied to any social movement and on the many manifestations of injustice and how participants can be involved in creating change.  SJLC provides participants with resources and opportunities for engagement on campus, in Middletown, in Connecticut and across the globe.
