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

Afrobeat Concert: Benyoro at Buddhist House

Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15 is just killing it with the concerts. This one is going to be wild fun and non-stop dancing.

Benyoro is playing again at Buddhist House, so come out and dance to
some damn groovy rhythms! (They will be performing both an amplified
set and an acoustic one with more traditional instruments! Woohooo!!)

“African music in America at its very finest! An all-star group.”
– NPR’s Afropop Worldwide

In the Bamana language of Mali, Benyoro means meeting place, and
that’s exactly what this group is. It’s about the meeting of
traditional and modern instruments, Malian and American musicians, and
centuries-old songs and modern arrangements.
