I started off the summer working full time as a mechanic at an auto shop. I was the youngest worker there, and so I was relegated to mostly only oil changes. My job involved performing safety inspections on all the vehicles, which was a fairly intensive process. I went through a checklist, and inspected each aspect of a vehicle that could “go wrong.” By a couple weeks in, I began taking on more responsibilities – some brake and serpentine belt changes, mostly. Working at the garage required a very strong work ethic, and I constantly struggled to keep on schedule (45 minutes per oil change and inspection is not that much time). I guess it’s not a typical summer job, as my friends all had internships in fields they were planning on pursuing, however I found the experience extremely rewarding. Not only is it not a typical college student summer job, but it is not a common job for a woman. Multiple people approached me to congratulate me, which, at times, I found a tad condescending, but I appreciated the attempt at sincerity.

In whatever time I had off, I tried to explore Oregon as best I could. In mid-July, my friend and I backpacked through the Diamond Peak Wilderness in Central Oregon, which Rachel Savageincluded a climb to a point boasting the “best view in Oregon.” We had a 360˚ view of mountains for hundreds of miles. While our water filtration pump broke the first day, and our stove broke the second, we managed through the five day excursion. I just got back from another camping trip in the Mt. Hood area in the Opal Creek Wilderness, an old growth forest with industrial mining equipment from the 1930s scattered between the trees. I’m not working in August, and I’m planning to drive my motorcycle down the Pacific Highway through California, that is, if the 1979 bike will hold up (fingers crossed).

Lizzie ShackneyI had an eye-opening experience this summer as a Forensic Policy Intern at the Innocence Project in New York City. In its most basic structure, the organization has two branches: legal and policy. The legal side works to exonerate innocent prisoners, whereas the policy side works to prevent wrongful convictions from happening in the first place. My most significant project involved reassembling information on how and why to file an allegation for the investigation of a lab. The information existed, but it was a lot of bulk text that was difficult to read and follow. I picked out the most important information and used some graphics and flow charts to make the information more readable and understandable.

The workplace environment was incredible—my supervisors and colleagues were young, welcoming, and ultimately became good friends. There were weekly brown bag lunch lectures by individuals from outside organizations, exposing me to all kinds of areas of law and public service that I hadn’t known much about before, such as public defense, the rights of pregnant women, and the work of the ACLU and the Ford Foundation. Overall, I learned more about the type of career that I want to work toward and was exposed to both problems and solutions in our society.

Thanksgiving

 

 

 

The Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project is an initiative that brings together volunteers from a variety of groups and businesses to purchase and assemble baskets of food for families who cannot otherwise afford Thanksgiving feasts. The baskets include a turkey, a pie, and all the ingredients to prepare a holiday meal. This year we’ll be preparing almost 1000 baskets!

We are currently looking for Wesleyan students to assist with prepping baskets on:

Monday, November 25th between 10am and 3pm at Fellowship Church (1002 Saybrook Road) and

Tuesday, November 26th between 10am and 12pm at Amazing Grace Food Pantry (16 Stack Street).

If you’re interested in volunteering, please sign up for a shift using this Google doc:

https://docs.google.com/a/wesleyan.edu/spreadsheets/d/1xl4FN4V_4dHsX8d_6MrkDnnHrpylhQ8Qxe1a0KOck08/edit?usp=sharing

We welcome any and all students to volunteer. The Office of Community Service will be providing van transportation for a limited number of students and we encourage all students who can provide their own transportation to volunteer and to bring friends, as well.

Thank you!  Office of Community Service

Network services have been restored across campus.  ITS located the source of the disruption that interrupted services across campus for over an hour this afternoon.  Not all segments of campus were impacted equally during that time.  Because email communication was impacted, ITS utilized its social media outlets to try and spread the word.  As a reminder you can follow us on Twitter @WesleyanITS or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/WesleyanITS.
