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

Film Series: Obvious Child

2014. USA. Dir: Gillian Robespierre. With Jenny Slate, Gaby Hoffmann. 84 min.

 

In this humbly subversive rom-com, a twenty-something comedian gets more than she bargained for when her drunken one-night stand gets her pregnant – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Slate gives a stellar turn as a young woman adrift in her newfound adulthood, while the film balances plenty of laughs with an earnest and refreshingly honest handling of the unwanted pregnancy.

Preludes in Sculpture

BurbAndBattery

From Sean Winnik GRAD:

Since January of this year, Sean Winnik (’14) has been creating and recording The Preludes in Sculpture, a collection of sculptures with associated sound files chronicling their creation. They will be displayed in a gallery-style showing in Earth House on September 19th opening at noon. This is part of Sean’s goal of engaging the Wesleyan students in avant-garde performance and art outside of overly academic settings.

“I believe that there are creators of avant-garde art and people who wish to intake the avant-garde at Wesleyan, but a consistent venue where these two population can meet doesn’t really exist, or at least is hard to find. I want to change that.”

Sept 19 noon: Opening
