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

TRAGIKINGDOM: A Medieval Skapopera (ska-pop-opera)

Wesleyan Rosh Hashanah

rosh-hashana-usa

From Rebecca Koppel ’14 and Danny Blinderman ‘14:

To the Wesleyan Jewish Community,

This week marks the fourth and final time that I will begin a year at Wesleyan. I remember each new beginning fondly, as starting points to years full of new ideas and experiences. At the same time, they also stand out as moments of continuation and renewal for some of the most meaningful friendships and most amazing communities I have ever known.

Read after the jump to see the rest of this message and a schedule of events for Rosh Hashanah!

Student Forum: Food Justice and Sustainability at Wesleyan and Beyond

From Rachie Weisberg ’15:foodz

There is a lot of great food related work happening on campus like Food Not Bombs, Long Lane Farm, WesFRESH, and WILD Wes, to name a few. You might have even heard that Wesleyan was chosen as the most vegan-friendly small US school by PETA!

Here at Wesleyan, we are lucky enough to be provided (at least) three meals a day. Yet, despite the fact that we consume food everyday from Wesleyan’s meal plan, many of us are uneducated about the system that brings the food to our plate. In fact, the food system goes
largely overlooked in our daily lives. Our country’s food system consists of a variety components. We will learn about this system in its entirety spanning from issues related to labor, the environment, and overall health and access.
