We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.

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!

Noah Rush ’14, putting the “House” in “Buddhist House,” writes in:
Three, no wait, four acts taking the stage on Friday night at Buddhist House. Headlined by Plume Giant, a stellar folk trio made up of graduates from Yale University. They just released a full length Callithump, which you can find here and finished up a national tour in promotion of said album. Here’s a video of them rockin’ out on a rooftop despite a kind of awkward introductory lady.
What? They’ve also played at Wesleyan before.
Friendship Marathon – Wesleyan band debut show, formerly called
Jacquisaurus and the Poppyseeds, made up of Gabe Greenberg, Noah Rush
and Jackie Soro, make songs with lots of instruments.
Brushfire – WEsleyan band debut show, Mel Hsu and Jess Best
Miles Orion Butler – singer-songwriter from Philadelphia
here’s his ep.
Alex Wilkinson ’13 has decided he wants to get involved with writing on campus for a change:
The Argus Magazine is Wesleyan’s only student-produced publication specializing in long-form nonfiction and journalism. By showcasing creative, engaging pieces from a variety of academic fields and personal backgrounds, we seek to channel the diverse array of student perspectives, experiences, and knowledge endemic to the intellectual vitality of our campus. Fundamental to this endeavor is an emphasis on collaboration between writers and editors, a process we feel is essential to producing polished, innovative work.
If you’re interested in writing, editing, or taking photography for The Argus Magazine, come talk to us. We hope to see you tomorrow!
