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.

Unitarian Universalist Potluck Dinner

Em Kianka ’13 invites you to the Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry’s first potluck of the year:

Q: Why did the Unitarian Universalist cross the road?
A: To support the chicken in its search for its own path.

Do you enjoy exploring personal beliefs in the context of a supportive, spiritual community oriented towards social justice? Do you like sitting around a table and engaging in friendly debate about whether or not your religion is in fact a religion? Do you drink more coffee than is necessary?

This Sunday (September 16th) is the Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry’s (UUCM) first potluck of the year! Whether or not you were raised Unitarian Universalist, still identify as a UU, or simply want to learn about a very liberal religious and humanist movement, come to socialize, eat wonderful food, and learn about Unitarian Universalism and the UUCM!

Pick Up a Compost Bucket

Oooh baby... chocolate is the symbol of love

For all the people in the Shoutbox who were asking, here’s how to never waste a piece of organic food material again. Writes Zach Burns ’14:

Ever feel guilty tossing a banana peel into the trash? Pick up a compost bucket on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday night from 7:00-10:00pm in Olin or Wes Shop. Every apple core and egg shell that you toss into your blue bucket is ultimately used as fertilizer at Long Lane Farm. You don’t pee in the sink, so don’t throw compost in the garbage! Buckets are waiting for you!

Date: September 16th, 17th, and 18th
Time: 7-10 pm
Place: Olin or WeShop
Cost: Free!
