40 Years of the Friends of the Davison
In 1962, the Friends of the Davison Art Center was founded to help support the growth of the DAC collection. Today the Friends continue to play a vital role in the museum's activities and to fund many of the museum's acquisitions. This 40th-anniversary celebration presents a visual feast of works by such Old Master printmakers as Dčrer, Rembrandt, and Goya and prints by late 20th-century masters Francesco Clemente, Willem de Kooning, and Robert Rauschenberg.

1 p.m.
It's Never Too Late to Get Online
Geared to WESeniors (Classes of 1918-1951) -but open to everyone-this hands-on session will introduce participants to the basics of accessing the Internet and navigating to specific Web sites. Special attention will be given to Wesleyan's Web site and the useful information available there for prospective students, alumni, parents, and current students.

Dematerializing: Challenging a Possession-Obsessed Culture
If you're secretly stunned by the consumerism of your friends, family or coworkers, and even yourself, you're not alone. Studies show that 95 percent of Americans believe materialism increasingly dominates our lives and may undermine our most important values. And for many people, it may be time to dematerialize. Join Wesleyan authors for a lively discussion about the pressures and expectations related to owning things, and gain historical and cultural insights into why "stuff" becomes so important.

Presenters: Jane Hammerslough '82, former New York Post columnist, frequent contributor to national magazines including Parenting, Child, Travel and Leisure, and Country Living, and author of Dematerializing: Taming the Power of Possessions; David Brancaccio '82, Host and Senior Editor, Minnesota Public Radio's Marketplace program and author of Squandering Aimlessly: My Adventures in the American Market Place

4 p.m.
The Bells of South College
The South College Bells were installed in December 1918 as the gift of the Class of 1863. They are rung before and after Wesleyan's Commencement ceremony and nearly every day at noon when the University is in session by undergraduate members of Bell & Scroll, a guild of dedicated bell ringers. Meet student chime masters and discover their broad musical repertoire. After the talk, visit the bell tower to see the console where the bells are played and view the bell chamber where they are housed. The tour involves climbing a narrow, spiral stairway and a steep ladder; space is limited for the tour and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Presenters: Peter Frenzel, Marcus L. Taft Professor of German Studies; Holly Schroll '02 and Mariah Klaneski '04, student bell ringers
