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

Historical Narratives Preliminary Meeting Today, 9:30 PM


Submitted by Sarah Dash ’14:

Historical Narratives is a peer-edited journal of history papers. Once a year, we publish a book (usually somewhere between 150 and 200 pages) of 4-6 history papers written by our peers. As editors, we solicit papers and meet a few (usually two or three) times each semester. We read through the papers we get and eventually whittle it down to a final 8-12 papers that we deliberate about in the spring semester to ultimately decide which papers we publish.

If you like history, join us! There are only 2-3 meetings each semester, you’ll get a chance to read interesting history papers and, depending on the crop we get, the opportunity to argue passionately to defend the papers you like and ultimately shape the journal.

We’ll be having a preliminary meeting at 9:30 PM TODAY in Allbritton 304. We’ll field any questions you may have and will get the ball rolling on our submission drives. Come by if you’re interested, or email one of the editors-in-chief: Sarah Dash ’14, sdash[at]wesleyan[dot]edu; Ali Ozols ’14, aozols[at]wesleyan[dot]edu; or Brendan O’Donnell ’14, bzodonnell[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Date: Tuesday, September 17
Time: 9:30 PM – 10:15 PM
