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!

An event sponsored by Wes,Divest! and the Committee for Investor Responsibility- a panel discussion of great importance to the future of the planet.
Fossil fuels do more than threaten the stability of the Earth’s the climate; fossil fuel extraction destroys the communities where oil, coal and gas are removed from the ground. Mountaintop removal coal mining, hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) for natural gas, oil drilling, and pipelining each pose incredible risks to water supplies and to the health of local residents. As the people in these communities suffer, the political and economic sway of fossil fuels companies allow them to continue with their destructive ways.
