We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.

From Elizabeth Arslanoglou ’16:
Are you an international student? Are you facing difficulties in adapting to classes and social life at WES? Do you feel that your cultural norms are different from those in the US? Do you believe that there are many things you just don’t get here? Do you feel homesick? Do you want a group of people similar to you to talk to?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us in our New Mental Health Support Group, specifically focused on International Students. The group will be facilitated by trained students who will also be active participants in the discussion. We will be having weekly friendly conversations about issues that concern us, relative to our transition from other cultures into a US college campus. You are not the only one out there facing “culture shock” so come share your experiences and thoughts!

This notice from Brian Papish ’10:
May 5th is the last day of classes. It is also bar night. It is a regional holiday in Mexico commemorating the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It is also Sarice’s birthday.
To celebrate all these impressive milestones, Orquesta Fiebre and La Boca have teamed up to bring you an evening of margaritas and salsa–and yes, we know salsa isn’t Mexican, but it IS hot. Come for dinner and hear the Latin jazz rhythm section from 6-8, or the main event with the full 31-piece orchestra from 9-12:30. It will be hot hot hot!
Date: May 5th
Time: 9 PM
Place: La Boca

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd!
Book by Hugh Wheeler; Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
The rare instance of a musical thriller, this suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism” and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe!
Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, “Sweeney Todd” nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor: audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
