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

Deloitte Consulting Information Session

A post-graduation job opportunity from Alexa Atamanchuk ’12:

This Sunday Deloitte Consulting will be hosting an information session for Wesleyan students who are interested in joining Deloitte as a Business Analyst after graduation.

Business Analysts work with a Deloitte project team to deliver strategic solutions and implement new processes for clients across all industries. As such, strong candidates should be top academic performers (typically 3.5+GPA) with solid analytical, quantitative and, where applicable, technical skills. In addition, top candidates should posses strong “people skills” and demonstrate leadership potential and a strong work ethic. This is important since Analysts typically travel four days a week to work collaboratively with the client and a Deloitte project team. Essentially we are looking for sharp students across all academic disciplines who can work well in a team environment.
