So we’ve been tossing around the idea of some sort of arts and crafts event on campus to promote our group. Here’s a list of potential ideas:
First and for most, t-shirts! We need a piece of clothing to symbolize our Walrus pride and promote ourselves (The alternative would be carrying around a large stack of Walrus issues and slamming them down on tables for emphasis. However, we don’t want to be those people). If t-shirts aren’t your style, I suggest Googling “Walrus sweater-vests” for a goldmine of style.
With midterms and essay due-dates rapidly approaching, anxiety on campus is at an all time high. What better way to relax than carving a large chunk of wood into the shape of a majestic walrus?
My personal favorite is a session of walrus art. Grab your paintbrushes and broken Crayola crayons to create a master piece! And what better way to showcase your work then by submitting it to the 2013 issue of The Walrus?
Check out our guidelines!
Maybe I’ll carve a Walrus out of lino-block *Book Arts on the brain*
The 2012 issues have been ordered!
That’s right! If all goes well, we should have them in just in time for our reading event for your viewing/ purchasing pleasure. In the meantime, finals are next week and the entire campus is studying, writing papers, being productive, etc.
I, on the other hand, don’t think it necessary to study until the weekend before. Instead, I’ve been procrastinating in various ways; one way has been by cleaning and reorganizing our Walrus office.
I didn’t take a “before” picture but here is our bookshelf full of past issues after an hour of intensive organizing only a procrastinating, library-worker could do.
Wendy and I also dug up some awesome Walrus treasures which include:
A Walrus banner!
Pages from a past Walrus Review paper
… and this awesome flyer that I’m considering photocopying and posting all around campus!
Wendy was more in love with the picture from the Walrus Review. Here’s a better picture:
Beautiful! I’m so proud of our history and excited for our new adventures. Onward!
