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

Second Stage Presents: Opposable Plays

Lindsay Schapiro ’14 invites you to come get fingered:

Fingers– what exactly are they?– how did they become that shape?– when did we as humans start using them in a sexual capacity?– why do they shake when you hold them out?– why do we crack them and they make a booming sound?– why do we put a circular object on one of them to show others that we are taken?

These are some questions explored through a collaborative theatrical event this week.
