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

Primal Scream at Midnight

Scream your lungs out on the Olin Steps tonight:

‘Tis the season to scream! Some people scream over holiday shopping. Others scream about a pending apocalypse.

But here at Wesleyan, we scream about the monsoon of papers with pending due dates and exams that are scheduled within the next few days. The first ones are tomorrow, so you know what that means…

It’s time to scream your lungs out! Never mind quiet hours, we’re too stressed for that. Let’s engage in one more community gathering — the only chance for community-based stress relief this semester.

At midnight, come out of your study bunkers at Olin, SciLi, wherever you are. You know what to do!

Date: Tonight (technically tomorrow morning)
Time: Gather at 11:55, scream at midnight
Place: Olin steps (or anywhere else on campus)

Documentary Nonfiction and Poetry Reading Tonight

Ford Fellow Emma Mohney ’12 writes in with a pleasant finals diversion this evening:

media-upload

Please join us for a reading of creative nonfiction and poetry by students in Teagle Fellow Kate Thorpe’s course, Creative Criticism and Inquiry: Writing Documentary Nonfiction and Poetry.  Each student in the class chose an archival collection from the holdings of Special Collections & Archives and wrote a creative piece inspired by the collection.  The results are wonderful examples of thinking outside the box of traditional archival research.  The collections chosen range from Civil War letters to the Hewlett Diversity Archive.  A selection of the archival materials will be on display at the reading.

For more information about the program, contact Kate at kthorpe(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Date: Monday, May 13
Time: 5-7 pm
Place: Develin Room, Olin Library
