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

Film Series: Fruitvale Station

2013. USA. Dir: Ryan Coogler. With Michael B. Jordan. 85 min.

This slice-of-life drama offers a nuanced portrayal of Oscar Grant, the victim of a racially-charged 2008 murder, on his last day alive. Coogler earnestly seeks to tackle who Grant was as a man, presenting the good, the bad, and everything in between while building incrementally to a devastating climax with echoes of the recent Trayvon Martin case. Intro by AFAM Majors Committee.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.

A WesBAM! Workshop for the Male-Identifying Community

sarahmarshall

From the kick-ass kickboxing superwoman Renee Dunn ’14:

Have you been wanting to try one of our group exercise classes, but feared you might be one of the few male-identifying people in the room? Break away the stigma and get a taste of some of what we have to offer at this FREE event.

The WesBAM! Team strives to provide services to the entire Wesleyan community, but demographically, those who identify as male are underrepresented in our classes. This workshop will move through three of our fitness modalities – TurboKick, CardioKickboxing, and Yoga – tailoring to your bodies and ensuring a comfortable environment in which we’ll be open to your feedback as we strive to make WesBAM! more accessible. Try it out and bring your friends! You’ve got nothing to lose.

For more information on WesBAM! visit our site here or “like” us on Facebook here!

Time: 4:30 PM – 5:45 PM
