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

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.

Given the photo of that dapper young gentleman featured above, you might have thought this post would detail Walter Rodriguez ’13 and his many accomplishments on the soccer field. Instead that photo is there merely so you can pick him out of the Olin crowd tonight when you go to sell him your schoolbooks. Though he gives everything of himself on the soccer field, this post is instead about how much money he’s about to give you in Olin tonight. But I’ll let Walter speak for himself on this one:
Hey everybody, I’m buying books this semester for Belltower Books, and I’m in Olin for the rest of the night in the back on the left by the big tables in the corner. I’ll give you straight cash for your books, so you can go HAM
tomorrow or Saturday night when you’re done with your exams. “Help ME help YOU make it rain.” – Ghandi
Time: Now until Olin’s closing
Espwesso fanboy Jacob Eichengreen ’13 invites you to come out and get coffee before Espwesso closes for break:
Heyo, your favorite cafe will be open tonight (9pm-1am), closing for break tomorrow. Look for us next semester with new and improved coffees, events, and all sorts of other neat things that you will like and stuff!
