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

Click on past the jump for some delicious music video content (or just look at the postings on the facebook event). It looks like this unfortunately is running right up against Ishmael, so bounce in between/choose wisely. But those of you planning on attending Joey Bada$$’s Psi U set, which I can’t seem to find the fb event for, should be happy to know that this starts after Joey Bada$$ ends, so the walk over is a great time to kill your bottle of mystery liquid.
