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

Sunday to Wednesday this week between the hours of  9:00 and 10:30 p.m., members of one class will receive any item on the menu for free, starting Sunday night with Freshman and progressing up to seniors Wednesday night.

So, the schedule will be as follows:

  • Wednesday: Seniors

Remember, kids, this is only between the hours of 9:00 and 10:30. If you don’t frequent Espwesso, you’re missing out on seriously delicious coffee in a seriously cozy spot. Take advantage of this opportunity to get to know the cafe, which is located on the bottom floor of Allbritton.
