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

PRIMAL SCREAM – TONIGHT @ MIDNIGHT OUTSIDE OLIN

screaming-person

Well, somebody fucked up.

Yesterday was the last (full) day of reading period since the first final is today (Tuesday) at 7:00 PM. There was supposed to be a Primal Scream at midnight. It ended up being sqwermy, me, and three other people chilling outside Olin screaming for ten seconds.

So we’re doing it again. Tonight. That means “when Tuesday turns to Wednesday, be outside Olin and scream.” Exactly at midnight. There will be a countdown.

Date: Tuesday, December 10
Time: 11:59 PM, passing into midnight and Wednesday, December 11
Place: Steps in front of Olin
