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

DONCHRISTIAN, C¥BERGIGA, and FXWRK at Eclectic, 11:00 PM

DONCHRISTIAN
He released his debut mixtape, The Wayfarer, last month and has received good press from media such as Spin and The Fader. Download it for some laid-back rap. Hopefully we’ll see some D’Angelo-ing up in here, and at the very least, dancing.

C¥BERGIGA
This Tokyo-raised ginger will most likely be getting all emotional, deeply feeling every sound he shares with us. Italian Vogue actually used his song “Tokyo Nostalgic” in a video, which is pretty incredible.

FXWRK
You can count on some trap-ish instrumentals that cause your mind to wander off somewhere. She’s not afraid to move her body for you as she gifts you with her music, so please give her the same respect. Thank you.

Date: Saturday, September 28
Time: 11:00 PM – 2:00 AM
