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

Old Music House-mates playmate new musics for you for to listen! Come one and all and do it for the mems!

Film Series: The Matrix

1999. USA. Dir: The Wachowski Siblings. With Keanu Reeves. 136 min.

Sure, we’ve all felt at one time or another that our entire world is a horrifying lie concocted by evil robots – but isn’t it nice when someone actually does something about it? Keanu learns Kung-Fu and becomes our technological messiah in this influential, seamless blend of Hong Kong martial arts and philosophical cyberpunk. “Whoa,” indeed.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.

Cardinal Sinners and the Dartmouth Brovertones in Olin

 The Dartmouth Brovertones — irreverently ruining the questionably-existent a cappella scene since time untold.

Lauren Seo ’14 invites you to swing by Olin tonight to see two awesome a capella groups:

The Cardinal Sinners and the Dartmouth Brovertones are having one magical night of a cappella and we want YOU to come and share in on the beauty! This Saturday, December 1st at 8pm. Olin Library. Be there. Facebook event.

Come! After all, not every a capella group covers KIDS, and rarely with such flair:

Joint Chiefs of Math Concert at Buho

From Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15:

It’s the last concert of the year for Buddhist House! Are you wondering what math has to do with rock? Do you enjoy rhythms that throw off your internal sense of balance? Are you at least curious what I’m talking about?

Joint Chiefs of Math is a guitar and drum math-rock duo based in Philly. Think Hella meets This Town Needs Guns meets Breadwinner meets Don Caballero. Or just checkitout:

We’ve also got the student group Anaphylactic Shock opening for them, featuring Henry Robertson ’13 on guitar and vox, Frank Fineis ’13 on bass, Jacob Masters ’15 on keys, and Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15 on drums.

Date: Tonight, November 30th
Time: 10PM
Place: BuHo

“The Other City” Screening in Honor of World AIDS Day

From Tali Robbins ’15:

Join us this December 1 for a screening of “The Other City” in honor of World AIDS Day.

Not far from the White House, the Capitol, and the National Mall lies a part of Washington, DC that the tourists never see and the mainstream media virtually ignores. At least three percent of DC is HIV positive, a staggering rate higher than parts of Africa. Behind all the stories of heartbreak, loss, and struggle there are also the incredible, encouraging stories of the people behind grassroots movements to extend education, combat stigmas, and spread hope.

Come, watch, eat free Typhoon dinner, and remember to wear red!

Date: Saturday, December 1
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Place: Shanklin 107
Cost: FREE (and you get Typhoon dinner)
FB Event.
