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

Audition for NIGHTMARE

Avenged-Sevenfold-Nightmare-Artwork

Russell Goldman ’17 writes:

Girls and ghouls of every age, wouldn’t you like to be in something strange? NIGHTMARE is a staged adaptation of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, adapted and directed by Russell Goldman (some sophomore) and sponsored by Second Stage. Performance dates are November 20-22.

NIGHTMARE follows Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, as he discovers a magical new holiday–Christmas. This is the story of the disaster that happened when these two holidays met.

If you want to audition, prepare a song to sing for us, preferably something close to the tone of the film’s music. We’d like that a lot.
