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

Widowspeak at Eclectic

If you missed out on tickets to see dead prez (or prefer a more alternative vibe), Brooklyn group Widowspeak will be playing Eclectic tonight, alongside Wesleyan’s own Treasure Island. Chelsie Green ’14 (hey, that rhymes) coming at you with the details:

Widowspeak is coming down up from Brooklyn this Saturday to play some
tunes. They played NYC’s Mercury Lounge on 1/22, and the reviewer
found their set “rounder, fuller, [and] more expressive” than ever
before. The material from their brand new release (from this week) is
more hard-hitting and varied than their first attempt (I’d even say
it’s better).
