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

slide22Art House will be hosting their first house warming show this friday, featuring MFDP, Phat Rabbit, Murdertones, Ladd, and Honeylung.

If you would like to submit any and all visual art for the event shoot an email at rheffernan[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

SWERVED interest meeting

Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 2.42.40 PM

Gabe Gordon ’15 and Zach Scheinfeld ’16 love science:

SWERVED was founded several years ago as a database for Wesleyan’s creative and artistic community. In the past, SWERVED has curated exhibitions of student work and maintained a presence online at swerved.org. This year, we hope to revamp and reinvent SWERVED’s online presence, and turn it into the usable database it has the potential to be. We hope to turn SWERVED not only into a showcase and archive of student work, but of student artists, making the site a place for people to find and connect with collaborators on all sorts of creative projects.

If you are interested in contributing work or helping out in any capacity, please join us Wed evening at 35 Home Ave!

Date: Tonight (Wednesday 9/17)
Time: 7 pm
Place: 35 Home

Film Series: Chinatown

1974. USA. Dir: Roman Polanski. With Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway. 130 min.

LA, 1937: A private detective who specializes in catching adulterers becomes entangled in a much larger plot involving murder, corruption, and water… Perhaps Polanski’s most iconic film, Chinatown is touted by many as the “perfect script” but succeeds just as well in atmosphere, as homage to the Hollywood noir and foreboding love letter to the City of Angels.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5
