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: Cape Fear

1991. USA. Dir: Martin Scorsese. With Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte. 127 min. 

Decades before The Wolf of Wall Street, Marty went nuts with a predator of a different stripe: a psychopathic ex-con out to systematically destroy the defender who failed him. A tattooed, muscular De Niro oozes menacing sleaze, his performance perfectly tuned to an over-the-top style that’s part horror flick, part social satire, and part Hitchcock homage.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5

Invisible Men Show

Courtesy of Rilwan Babajide ’16: 

Come join the Invisible Men Collective for a night of community performances as we focus on the value of Sankofa, “to reach back and get it.” Throughout the show, we hope to reflect on our history both at Wesleyan and Abroad and we seek to better understand our potential for the future. The night is sure to be exhilarating, challenging, and thought provoking.
