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

Middletown Potluck Superbowl Snacks

67583_10203136279546392_925657353_nFrom Ari Ebstein ’16:

Tonight Middletown Potluck will be delivering fresh nachos and hummus platters (homemade! the both!) to superbowl parties across campus. Nachos come will FR3$H salsa and the hummus platter with homemade pita chips and baby c@rrotz.

The cause? We’re trying to raise money to buy lockers for Middletown’s homeless population. Homeless people carry all their stuff around on them 24/7 because they have no where to keep it, and as a result of this insecurity, their stuff is frequently stolen or thrown away — all that they own.

The event is pay what you can with a suggested donation of $15. Each plate serves five people.

E-mail middletownpotlock[at]gmail[dot]com with your order, or text it to 206-697-7208

Date: TONIGHT
Time: 5-9:30 p.m.
Place: Delivered to YOU
Cost: Suggested donation: $15
