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

AEPi: Rave or Die

From The Brothers of the Alpha Psi Chapter of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity:

AEPi is throwing its annual halloween rave. Dress up and prepare to dance your hearts out.

Bring your WesCards.

FREE glowsticks for the first 300 people.

DJ Dubbstep ’14 will be playing some Doombahton (Doomsday Moombahton), and DJ Nephesh ’14 will be playing some face-melting Electro. Peter Cramer ’14 will simultaneously run a live light show–complete with blacklight, lasers, strobes, and more of that tasty shit.

And everybody should donate $3 to Shining Hope For Communities (SHOFCO).

  • DATE: Tomorrow (Saturday, October 29th)
  • TIME: 10pm-2am
  • PLACE: 200 Church

DISCLAIMER: Upon being extensively questioned on the subject of the Rave’s Title, the Brothers would like to announce to the public at large that attendance at this rave is not necessarily guaranteed to save you from death. The Brothers have determined that there is, in fact, more than a 99% chance that you will die at some point throughout your life, regardless of whether or not you attend. But you should attend. Because you’re alive now. And you should celebrate that fact by dancing your ass off at what will be The Hella-Mad-Awesomest RaveFest You Ever Attended.

VD Presents: The Halloweekend Show

From The Vocal Debauchery Family:

This Halloweekend, we know what’s up.

Girls. Everywhere. In slutty costumes. So much makeup that you don’t know who you’re making out with. You just know that her makeup doesn’t taste that great but neither did the margaritas your roommate tried to make and…

It’s intense. We get it. Take a breather, come see some a cappella and sketch comedy, meet our newbies, laugh, cry, give your livers a rest. For God’s sake, people.

Love,
Vocal Debauchery.
