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.

Date: Friday, November 2
Time: 9:30pm-11:59pm
Place:  The Usdan Center
Cost: Noneskies

Mixolydians End of Semester Concert

Want to kick ass on your finals? Studies show that babies who listen to classical music may be smarter, fatter, and more awesome than babies that don’t. Don’t you want to be one of those babies?

Take a break during reading week to come hear the Mixes sing in their final concert of the year! We’ve got a great assortment of music this semester, including, (just to give you a little taste) a Bosnian folk song, some jazz, vespers, and even a little James Taylor.

Date: Sunday, May 13
Time: 3 pm
Place: Memorial Chapel
Cost: Free

Wesleyan Spirits Spring Jam on Saturday

AJ “Big Bird” Hinds ’12, coming into my house, and once again, as always, as forever, making it all about him, with typical questionable humor:

Comrade,

Against my better judgment, I am once again asking you to post about the Spirits’ Spring Jam (also known as my Senior Thesis because, as you know, I am a weak, weak man incapable of completing an actual thesis). It would be great if you could post it sometime tomorrow, but I wanted to send the info to you today, so that I didn’t forget amidst the festivities.

Title: Wesleyan Spirits Spring Jam: A Senior Thesis Presentation by AJ Hinds ’12
Time: Saturday, May 12 at 7pm
Location: Memorial Chapel
Price: Free
Face: Book

Anyway, Garth Taylor ’12 already had his equivalent of a senior thesis with the Rooks in the ’92 concert, and that shit was tight. 

Oh god I can’t write sentences right now.
