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

Think of it as a mix between soccer and hockey played on ice. Just bring an extra pair of shoes to the rink and you are set. Come for as little or as long as you’d like. You won’t regret it.

Wes-Gilead Alliance Info Session!

An invitation from Siri Carr ’15:

Take a study break this Sunday at 2pm to find out about the one and only WES-GILEAD ALLIANCE!!! There will be FREE COOKIES!!!
What is the Wes-Gilead Alliance, you may ask? The WGA is a student-run organization that works with Gilead Community Services in Middletown to pair Wes students up with a member of the Middletown community who is receiving Gilead services to help with their mental illness. It’s a buddy program that works to form rewarding relationships between Wesleyan and Gilead buddies as a way of helping them get rehabilitated back into society. Buddy meet-ups may include going on a walk, sharing a meal together, seeing a movie, going to a sporting event…almost anything goes!
If this tickles your fancy, stop on by Judd 113 on Sunday at 2pm to find out more! Attendance at this meeting does not require you to join WGA – this is just an info session to gauge interest for recruiting new members for next semester!

Date: Sunday (today!), December 8
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Place: Judd Hall, rm. 113
