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: In Bruges

2008. UK/USA. Dir: Martin McDonagh. With Colin Farrell. 107 min.

After a kill gone badly wrong, two foul-mouthed Irish hitmen are forced by their even-fouler-mouthed boss to hole up in the titular medieval Belgian burg. What goes down is anything but a quiet getaway, devolving into a pitch black comedy that boasts shocks and gore aplenty yet remains grounded in a surprisingly poignant emotional core.

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