Come hear about student forum ENG420: DIGITAL JOURNALISM, a semester-long course where we will focus on producing online content and developing our portfolio.

We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.
Sophia Jennings ’16 and Ben Romero ’16 will be leading the student forum.

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!

The Eart Yurt is at it again.
Plume Giant is a three-piece band from Brooklyn. The three members met in Yale and have played several shows over the last few years at Wesleyan. Once a folk trio with a penchant for catchy melodies and big choruses, they have been developing a more orchestral, synth-pop sound of late, experimenting with more instruments and textures in preparation for a new album set to drop in 2014.
Come drink coffee, eat donuts, and talk about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict! This week we will be talking about the separation barrier and checkpoints. Caffeine, sugar, and intellectually stimulating conversation–what could be better?

2002. Spain. Dir: Pedro Almodóvar. With Javier Cámara. 112 min.
Two men form a strong bond as they care for the women they love: a bullfighter and a dancer, both of whom are in comas. Almodóvar lends his signature brand of vibrancy and vivacity to this mournful, uneasy examination of love, its expressions, and its consequences.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
