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!

Sarah Corey ’15 invites you to a play this weekend:
Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8pm in the Westco Cafe. No tickets needed.
In 1982, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, three pot-smoking teenagers are resoundingly rejecting the 1960s ideals of their affluent parents. In hilarious and bittersweet detail, Youth presents a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood by following forty-eight turbulent hours in the lives of three very lost souls at the dawn of the Reagan Era.
Directed by Sarah Corey
