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

Yawn a More Roman Way

Tulsa Slut

From “the nicest guy you know,” Coz Deicke ’15:

Tulsa Night Life: Filth, Gin, a Slut

Welcome to the world of Yawn a More Roman Way where the dialogue is palindromes, the characters are bizarre, and the realm is absurd.

An Original Palindromic Play Written and Directed by Coz Deicke

This show is sponsored by Second Stage and the tickets are free! Get them at the Box Office on the day of the performance!

Film Series: Titticut Follies

1967. USA. Dir: Frederick Wiseman. Documentary. 84 min.

 Wiseman takes audiences within the walls of a Massachusetts hospital for the criminally insane using his signature observational style: no narrator, scores, interviews or explanations. Filmed merely by shadowing inmates and staff, the frequently disturbing results led the state to ban the film’s distribution for decades.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
