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

From Eric Lopez ’15:

RPMU Presents Sylvan Esso & kaleidoscope

Sylvan Esso looks to put on the first big show for WestCo Cafe this coming Friday with their dancing beats and riveting vocals. Sylvan Esso is a collaboration between vocalist Amelia Meath and electronic musician Nick Sanborn. Meath’s powerful voice is front and center, unjoined by fellow harmonizers as it is in her folk group, Mountain Man. Sanborn, who plays bass in the genre-destroying Megafaun, creates intricate, pulsing grooves for Meath’s voice to inhabit. check out their soundcloud.

kaleidoscope is Keenan Burgess ’16 and one of the best beat makers on campus. His newest song “Aurora” is filled with floating vocals and an ethereal sensation all over it. Burgess played an opening set last semester for Sweater Beats and the Clam Casino-esque sounds played beautifully there. You can check out the rest of his sounds on his Soundcloud page, which includes a great rework of Cassie’s “All My Love”, and grab some older tracks off his Bandcamp page.

Set Times to be announced on Facebook.

Date: Today
Time: 10 pm
Place: WestCo Cafe
Cost: Nada
