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

The 2013 Thesis Film Screenings

The Wesleyan Thesis Films 2013 – Trailer from Ethan Young on Vimeo.

The screenings of the 2013 Thesis films are this weekend. All showings are in the Goldsmith Family Cinema. 16mm is Friday 8pm, Sunday 2pm. Digitals are Saturday and Sunday at 8pm. Tickets are $5. They are sold on a first come, first serve basis, limited to one per person, and go on sale 45 minutes before showtime.

Important note: The film screenings did not sell out last year either of the opening nights. Although many folks show up especially early to get good seats, please do not let that discourage you from arriving much closer to the showtime. We want as many people as humanely possible to enjoy our films.

On each night of the film screenings we will announce on the Facebook event page when/if the tickets have sold out. If you do not see a post on there, assume that seats are still available and come down.

The screening order is:
