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

Audition for Clinger

Print

Michael Steves ’13 writes:

Come audition for Clinger, an independent horror-comedy feature film shooting this summer, directed by Michael Steves ’13 and crewed almost entirely by Wesleyan students. The film shoots in Houston, Texas from July 20th until August 22nd (though most actors will not have to be there for the entire time).

Several Wesleyan students and actors out of LA have already joined the cast, but we still have a few key parts left to cast. Actors will not be paid upfront, but all food and housing is covered while you are in Houston and back end pay will be offered if the film makes a profit.

The premise: A high school girl has to fight for her life when her overly affectionate boyfriend dies in an embarrassing accident and returns as a ghost, determined to kill her so that they can live together forever in the afterlife.

  • WHEN?: Tomorrow (Saturday) from 2-5pm; Sunday from 3-6pm
  • WHERE?: Usdan 108 (Saturday) and Usdan 136 (Sunday)
  • QUESTIONS?: msteves(at)wesleyan(dot)edu
