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

From Haenah Kwon ’17:

Hello beautiful people, you guys are all looking beautiful today. Middletown Potluck invites you beautiful people to Interfaith Anti-Oppression dinner, which will be happening from 6:00-9:00PM THURSDAY (TODAY) AT ADATH ISRAEL. Adath Israel is placed in 8 Broad Street – super close walk from campus, but we will also have a van driving up there from 200 Church.

We will have amazing speakers (including those representing Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Black communities) who will share songs, prayers, meditations, stories, food, and so much more to be part of the fight against oppression. You can all participate in the discussions we will have. You can bring food, but you are also welcome without any. (We will have amazing food.) Just bring love.

If you are recently feeling a bit stressed and out of love, you should definitely come. If you are recently feeling full of love, you should also definitely come. Even if you can’t make it to the whole thing, join the movement of interfaith and love by just being there.

Film Series: Crystal Fairy

2013. Chile. Dir: Sebastia?n Silva. With Michael Cera, Gaby Hoffman. 98 min.

After chatting up “Crystal Fairy” at a party, douche-y expat Cera accidentally recruits the oft-nude heroine on a quest to find a magical hallucinogenic cactus. Tensions flare as they drive across Chile, thundering towards a secluded beach where the climatic drug trip will play out in all its (strangely moving) glory.
