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

games. Following the bar night theme, we will be serving fries, onion rings and chicken fingers.

FREE Zumba Fitness® Class — 4 p.m. today!

(Luls.)

REAL QUICK, cool cat Hannah Monk ’12 writes in:

Zumba Fitness® is a Latin-inspired dance fitness program that includes 27 national and international rhythms. The music includes everything from Reggaeton to Salsa to the Top 20 hits you secretly dance to in your car.

Now is the time to stop hiding your dancing. The creator of Zumba®, Beto Perez, once said, “I don’t want people to feel the burn, I want people the feel the music”. Zumba® is a workout disguised as a dance party. It’s about having a good time while simultaneously burning calories (anywhere between 500-900 an hour!) and strengthening muscles.

My class accommodates all fitness levels and all dancing abilities. This is YOUR workout (or party if you choose to call it that).  *This is a weekly Wexercise class*

(There will be a lot of people, so you might want to come a few minutes early to fill out forms).

You’ve got nothing to lose, so come shake it with us!

For questions or more information, write Hannah at hmonk(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.  She’s awesome.

Time: 4 – 5 in the p.m.

It’s that time again….

If you’re interested in choreographing, contact fbuzzi@wes. We love all styles and have pretty much seen it all, from contemporary to salsa to satire to sword dancing.

We’ll have auditions for Terp Core after general auditions.

Sci-Fi Thesis Film Casting Call

From Jake Lane ’12:

I’ll be shooting a senior thesis film in the October. I’m looking to cast a woman in the leading role, but I need a few small but expressive side characters as well, so anyone interested in acting should come in and try out! There’s no need to prepare anything.

The film is a noir-ish science-fiction about a scoundrel struggling to survive in a wretched world, haunted by a past betrayal. There’s sword fighting in it. It should be fun.

The film is meant as a sort of homage to old-school science fiction films. An enthusiasm for pulpy genre films is a plus.

Date: Sunday, Sept. 25
Time: 4pm-7pm
Place: Usdan 114 (Ullian Meeting Room)

Krill, Dead Wives, Life Size Maps @ MuHo

Krill is a fun sloppy rock band based in Somerville, MA, and Baltimore, MD, and prone to really awful “krill” puns. They’re playing MuHo tomorrow night, along with fellow out-of-towners Life Size Maps and Dead Wives, which both play poppy, garagey, tuneful sort of tunes and such. It’s free, and it’ll be a krilly good time, promises Daniel Ferm ’12:

This Saturday, September 24th, we have a rockin’ show at music house. Three out-of-town bands, Krill, Dead Wives, and Life Size Maps, are gracing Wesleyan with their ever-warming glowing warm glow. Come on down. It’s going to be a krilly good time. And it’s free.
