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

TRAGIKINGDOM: A Medieval Skapopera (ska-pop-opera)

The Hermes Rises from the Ashes (Again)

imageEthan Hoffman ’14 sends a rather brusque email request to “Please post the text below w/ photo ASAP.” So here it is:

Interested in getting involved in Wesleyan journalism or activism? Frustrated by the current state of campus news and want to cover the issues that the Argus won’t cover, or write in styles or forms that ‘objective neutrality’ says are verbotten?

Film Series: The Triplets of Belleville

2003. France. Dir: Sylvain Chomet. Animated. 78 min.

 

An old woman must rescue her cyclist grandson from the wine-swilling French mafia with the aid of the titular trio: aging stars fond of improvisational jazz and dining on frogs. This odd-yet-endearing feature is mostly dialogue-free, relying instead on whimsical sounds and music as well as a charmingly grotesque visual style.

Want to Play Rugby? Try Old Meth!

wes_rugby

The indefatigable Nick Guthrie ’15 writes:

Have you ever wished that all sports involved tackling?

Do you think that football would be more fun if everyone on the team got to both carry the ball and play defense?

Do you like running, dodging, hitting, scrumming, singing, rucking, and (maybe) fighting?

If any of the above (or none of them!) applies to you, you should come out to play for Wesleyan’s own Old Methodist (Old Meth) Rugby Football Club this fall. We practice Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 4:30-6:30 at Long Lane Field. Email dbrugioni[at]wesleyan[dot]edu for more details or if you don’t know where Long Lane is.

Date: Tuesday, September 9th – Thursday, September 11th
Time: 4:30-6:30 PM
