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

Bar Night at Usdan

It’s Bar Night at Usdan.  It’s BAR NIGHT at USDAN.  A headline out of my dreams:

A full range of mocktails and sodas will be served with labeled ingredients.

We will provide a range of different activities such as Wii, trivia competition, water pong, darts, karaoke, pool, foosball, and other
games. Following the bar night theme, we will be serving fries, onion rings and chicken fingers.

While participating in this fun filled event, students can enjoy delicious drinks and great entertainment with friends, without
worrying about having a terrible hangover the next day. This will also be a scent and strobe-light free event.

VD Auditions!

From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

Dear Friends, Fans, and Freshmen:

We’re looking to get even more debaucherous, which we can only do with your help! If you can sing, and if you’re funny, hey, let’s be friends! Stop by the Music Studios basement between 7 and 9 PM on Tuesday or Wednesday (we’ll be the room full of people). All you need is a song to sing and a joke or funny story to tell (or another way to make us laugh that involves neither tickling nor nitrous oxide).

Love,
Vocal Debauchery.

P.S. If, for any reason, you are unable to make the audition times, please email kfeder(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and we’ll try to make things work.

VD is:
Solomon Billinkoff ’14, Michael Deck ’14, Kenny Feder ’12, Leada Fuller ’14Chelsea Goldsmith ’13, Emily Jones ’14, Matt Krakaur ’14Cade Leebron ’14Jocelyn Spencer ’13Ben Tweed ’13Lisle Winston ’14

For the Facebook event page, click here.

  • WHEN?: TONIGHT (Tues., 9/6) and TOMORROW (Wed., 9/7) at 7-9 pm
  • WHERE?: The basement of the music studios.
  • DO I NEED MONEY?: Generally speaking, yes, you should have money on you at all times, but unless you want to bribe your way into the group, it’s not necessary. One should note, however, that the Music Studios basement has been prone to a high incidence of violently playful muggings committed by well-dressed people singing “Spiderwebs,” so one should regardless proceed with the utmost caution.
