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

Film Series: Operation Condor

1991. Hong Kong. Dir: Jackie Chan. With Chan, Carol Cheng. 92 min.

Jackie’s treasure hunter / U.N. agent scours the Sahara for Nazi gold, but his “Indiana Chan” shtick is just a flimsy excuse for non-stop action comedy shenanigans and gasp-inducing daredevilry. CONDOR contains some of Chan’s most elaborate and enjoyable stunts, as he dodges cars, tumbles over a mountain in an inflato-ball, and fights inside a wind tunnel with a giant fan.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
