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

Write-in: WESCAM SLAM

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 6.10.26 PM

It has come prematurely, folks. A wild Wescam has been spotted: a glorious Wesculture behemoth [or should we say Tentacruel? And on that note, who are you “Tentacruel 2014, female?!] feeding on crushes and shitting out awkwardness and the occasional night of sweaty nonsense.

At the time of this post, 2237 students are registered [that is one grandfucking majority of our student body], 18k+ crushes have been added, and 5722 matches have been made. I know you all have stories.

HERE’S THE LINK. WHERE? WRITE HERE. PUNS.

simultaneous-interpretation-equipment-bosch-interpreting-colombiaFrom Jenny Cascino ’17:

Professional court interpreter Sandra Cardone is returning to campus next week to host a two-part interpretation workshop on general interpretation techniques between Spanish and English.

Ms. Cardone specializes in training interpreters for the Connecticut court system, so what better chance to start dabbling in the art of interpretation if you’re new to it or have wanted to try ever since you saw Nicole Kidman in “The Interpreter”? Her training sessions at Wes two years ago were extremely informative and popular among attendees, so make sure to bring your lunch along to PAC the next two Tuesdays at 12 to get in on the Spanish/English fun!

Hosted by WesInterpreters.

Date: Tuesday, April 29
Time: 12-1 p.m.
Place: PAC 001
