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

From my girl Bennett Kirschner ’13:
Friends! Lovers! Acquaintances! Unknowns! Sal Hepatica goes up this weekend, at 7 and 9PM on Friday and 7PM on Saturday. Together, we will enjoy magical renditions of tiny animals, travel to far-away places, dance to be-bop jazz, and grapple with the paralyzing force of meticulous cleanliness. The show is three tiny shows bundled up into one delightful hour — seats are very limited, so we recommend you come whenever you can.

7:00 PM and 9:00 PM (Friday)
