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

Film Series: Rebel Without a Cause

1955. USA. Dir: Nicholas Ray. With James Dean, Natalie Wood. 111 min.

Dean broods and smolders in his iconic role as the new kid who clashes with bullies and authorities but forms a tender bond with his fellow outsiders. Few films have justified the emphatically wide CinemaScope frame and vivid color quite like Ray’s intense parable of teen angst.

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