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

Deloitte Consulting Information Session

deloitte-logo-2011

From Lisa Lee ’13:

This Sunday Deloitte Consulting will be hosting an information session for Wesleyan students who are interested in joining Deloitte as a Business Analyst after graduation.

The Business Analyst (BA) program provides the opportunity to work with Deloitte teams to help implement new processes and develop strategic solutions for clients across all industries and service lines. Given this line of work, strong candidates should be top academic performers with solid analytical skills.

Throughout the program, Business Analysts will also develop consulting skills and capabilities by collaborating with peers and senior practitioners on a day-to-day basis. As such, top candidates should also possess strong interpersonal skills and demonstrate leadership qualities and a strong work ethic.

The event will feature Deloitte professionals, many who are also Wesleyan alumni, with pizza and a meet and greet afterwards.

Note: Last day for resume drops is 11:59PM on October 8th.

Date: Sunday, September 29
Time: 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
