What kind of weekend activities or nightlife do you like to participate in?
Every weekend there’s a bunch of parties at university housing. Program houses will usually throw parties and different student groups will have events at their houses. Every weekend there’s something going on, which is pretty cool. There aren’t really any boring weekends. Sometimes there will be themed parties that certain groups, people, or clubs on campus throw. For example, this month the Program House, Malcolm X House, threw a bunch of events for Black History Month, and last weekend there was a showcase where there were dancers, singers, and musicians, and there was a party after.
What is the impact on Greek life on nightlife?
It doesn’t have much of an impact if you’re not part of Greek life. You’re still welcomed into the parties if you’re not in Greek life. They do have their own private events, but they also have a lot of public parties. As a person that’s not in Greek life, I don’t ever feel alienated or like I can’t go to an event or anything. There is a presence on campus but I don’t feel like it’s overbearing in that there’s a social pressure to join or not go to a certain event.
How happy are you with the weekend options at Wesleyan?
I’m pretty happy with the weekend options. There isn’t anything really terrible about it. Of course, if you party every single weekend it will get old so I’m happy there are other options. Also, just chilling in your room or watching a movie with friends is always a good time. I love the options.
