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

Film Series: Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure

1985. USA. Dir: Tim Burton. With Paul Reubens, Elizabeth Daily. 90 min.

Pee-Wee leaves the playhouse and ventures into the “real” world after his pesky neighbor Francis steals his beloved bike. Burton’s gleefully weird debut feature was a smash out of the gate – who would’ve thought psychedelic dream sequences and thinly veiled sexual innuendo would be such a hit amongst kids?

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.

Mara Woods-Robinson ’16 writes in about an awesome screening happening tomorrow:

“An anonymous body in the Arizona desert sparks the beginning of a real-life human drama. The search for identity leads us back across a continent to seek out the people left behind and the meaning of a mysterious tattoo.”

Like film? Activism? Free food? Then join us on Wednesday night for a screening of Who Is Dayani Cristal?, a 2013 award-winning documentary film about immigration politics. The screening will be followed by a live Google Hangout with director Marc Silver. And there will be snacks!

REACT to FILM is a nonprofit organization with chapters in colleges across the nation. We organize screenings of documentary films about social issues, with the hope of generating discussion around the issues and providing the opportunity for students to become involved.

Date: Wednesday, February 26 (tomorrow)
Time: 7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
