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

TRAGIKINGDOM: A Medieval Skapopera (ska-pop-opera)

Survey: Classical Musicians and Improvisation


Nathan Shane ’13 wants to pick your brain about music:

If you have learned classical music at some point in your life, or you are learning it now, then please take this survey! By conducting this survey, I hope to gather information for my undergraduate thesis, the topic of which is improvisation in classical music education. I will ask you questions about your music education, music in your life today, and your thoughts on improvisation. If you have 30 minutes, I would appreciate your participation a lot!

Here’s the link to the survey.
