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

Esteemed broomball commissioners Ty Kelly ’14 and Gareth Novak-Miller ’14 send one of the most minimal event post blurbs this website has gotten in a while pertaining to broomball, an absurd hockey-like sport that involves people in sneakers playing hockey on the ice rink every Sunday:

Hear ye, hear ye!

Come one, come all to the first meeting of Broomball 2014. Why? Because who doesn’t like falling down on ice.

Anything But Coke – Protest for LGBT Rights

1504112_626637920728895_607408497_n

From Jeff Kasanoff ’15:

On Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 1:30 P.M, Anything But Coke, a campaign we started over the break, is organizing a peaceful protest for Wesleyan students to come together to speak out against the injustices in Russia and the corporations that support them.

This past June, President Vladimir Putin of Russia signed into law a bill banning the public support of the LGBT community. Since then, violent hate crimes against the LGBT community have dramatically increased. Now, there is talk of a bill to take children away from same sex parents – who up until now have been living openly and peacefully. LGBT citizens have been forced to flee the country.
