WESupport International Students

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!

Date: February 23-May 11
Time: 8-9 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel Meditation Room

Film Series: “The Red Shoes”

Showtime razzle and Technicolor dazzle reign over this acclaimed work, which influenced film artists from Gene Kelly to Martin Scorsese. A young dancer struggles between love and the limelight, culminating in a tremendously beautiful ballet enactment of the Hans Christian Anderson fable. Life rushes by, but the red shoes go on!

ARE YOU WESLEYING?

Do you like to take pictures of half-naked Wes students . . . and paste Michael Roth’s face on top?

Do you like to procrastinate . . . by helping other students procrastinate?

Do you carry a camera with you at all times  . . . without entirely knowing why?

Do you dig through ancient Argus archives . . . so you can make fun of people who totally graduated, like, twelve years ago (but somehow still manage to comment on the post)?

Do you think the atmosphere is a way less exciting place than . . . the blogosphere?

Do you think blogging about blogging is, like . . . totally meta and shit?

Do you think that mocking the nauseating Wesleyan Admissions site is  still funny ten months later?

ARE YOU WESLEYING???? Important info on Wesleying recruitment after the jump.
