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!

Missed the first planning meeting but wish you could have came? Please come to the second planning meeting for the March for Change that will take place in Hartford on Thursday, February 14th from 11-12:30. The March for Change is a grassroots effort organized by a coalition of activists supporting the enactment of safer gun legislation in CT and will support the efforts of CT Against Gun Violence. March for Change supports several potential legislative changes, including strengthening our assault weapons ban and banning large capacity ammunition magazines of more than 7 rounds, with no grandfathering.
Please come stand in solidarity and attend this planning meeting! As a community, we must take a stand and tell our legislators that enacting gun control legislation is necessary to ending gun violence in the state of Connecticut. At this meeting, we will be having an informed and grounded discussion of gun control in the U.S., making posters and fliers for the march, and discussing how to get as many people involved as possible.
