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

TRAGIKINGDOM: A Medieval Skapopera (ska-pop-opera)
Set roughly within the 5th and 15th century, TRAGIKINGDOM weaves the tale of forbidden and feudal love between a queen and a revolutionary serf to the musical stylings of No Doubt’s 1995 album Tragic Kingdom.
