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!

If you’re a fan of fan fiction, spare 3 minutes to complete a short survey! I’m writing an English thesis about Harry Potter fan fiction and your responses are greatly appreciated. And if you could forward it along outside the Wesleyan bubble, that would be awesome as well.

From your brand new EON coordinators Aletta Brady ’15, Nina Gerona ’15, Kate Gibble ’15 and Corey Guilmette ’13:
We are excited to announce that EON’s first meeting of the semester will be held this Friday, February 1st from 1-2PM in 41 Wyllys Room 114. That’s right, we’re back and ready for action.
EON (Environmental Organizers Network) is Wesleyan’s umbrella environmental group that helps organize environmental groups on campus to further promote their ideas. Our agenda for this meeting will be to introduce ourselves and give these various groups an opportunity to introduce themselves and their agendas for the upcoming year. If you want to get involved this is a great space to connect with other people who are interested in many different types of sustainability and Earth related issues. Also on the agenda will be a potential trip to Washington DC during the weekend of February 17th for a protest against the keystone pipeline.
This will also be an opportunity to bring up any relevant environmental issues that you see on campus and discuss a way to organize around them.
What: Environmental Organizers Network’s 1st meeting of the semester Where: 41 Wyllys, room 114 When: This Friday from 1-2pm
