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

Film Series: Abre Los Ojos

1997. Spain. Dir: Alejandro Amenábar. With Penélope Cruz. 117 min.

 

A handsome Casanova is horribly disfigured in a car crash and left to re-piece his identity, but the boundaries of dream and reality start to blur before his eyes. The film that inspired the endearingly disastrous Vanilla Sky, this Spanish original succeeds with its psychosexual thrills, bizarre plot turns, and the welcome absence of Tom Cruise.

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

Some words from  Sophia “Sophia Jennings” Jennings ’16:

Method Magazine and SWERVED are teaming up with Columbia’s PostcryptArt Gallery for a Wes/CU show in NYC on October 24th. Over the course of a month, we invite you to start working on anything. It can be a story, a poem, a painting, a drawing, a photo, a beat, anything.

On September 29th, we’ll send it to NYC, where a group of Columbia artists will keep working on it. Then they’ll send it back to us by October 7th. You’ll take what they’ve done and add to it more before we send it back on October 15th. The Columbia artists will add their finishing touches and by October 24, the piece will be part of an opening at Postcrypt Gallery beneath St. Paul’s Cathedral in Morningside Heights.
