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: “House of Wax”

1953. USA. Dir: Andre De Toth. With Vincent Price, Frank Lovejoy. 90 min.

A tortured wax sculptor develops some very sinister ideas about finding “models” for his new museum. The film which really began Price’s career as horror icon (and which also features Charles Bronson as Igor) was originally billed for its 3-D, but one-eyed director De Toth imbues it with a fun and creepy elegance beyond gimmickry.

DATE: Tonight, October 30
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
