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!

Do you believe our government reflects values of democracy, efficiency, equality, and flexibility? Do you think we need to change
how we govern ourselves in the 21st century? On Inauguration Day 2013 the Roosevelt Institute will submit to the White House a report compiled from campuses around the country on what we, the Millennials, think the role of our government should be. Make sure Wesleyan’s voice is heard! By participating in a Government By and For workshop you will provide invaluable data and new ideas for the final report. Help us get the conversation started about what our generation wants to see from our leadership!
