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 Othello!

silly-shakespeareCoz Deicke ’15 is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on:

Othello will be a redesigned, reimagined, and modernized version of the Shakespearean original, adapted and directed by Coz Deicke and going up in the secluded, back-of-house darkness of the ’92 Theater November 6th-8th.

Othello is a female director at a major theater company, who gives the lead role in the upcoming production to Cassio, snubbing her dear friend Iago. Thus, Iago vows to get his revenge on Othello and wreck tragedy upon all who inhabit the theater. The play plays with gender, different eras of language, evil, and of course, comedy!

Auditions will be in the Jones Room of the Theater Studios SUNDAY 9/7 and MONDAY 9/8 from 4:30 to 7:00 PM.

This position allows students the opportunity to polish communication skills, post a coveted and marketable position on their resumes, and earn a recommendation from Wesleyan’s University Relations department. Ambassadors will also have the opportunity to be invited to special events on and off campus with trustees and prominent alumni.
Information sessions will be in PAC 001 on Monday, September 8 at 1:00 PM and Tuesday, September 9 at 6:00 PM.
