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

Tickle My Toes? Kiss My Nose? Let’s Hook Up!

Ever noticed that the term “hooking up” is actually pretty confusing and ambiguous? When someone wants to “hook up”, does he/she/ze means what you do? How do you know?? Come chat about how to best communicate your wants, needs, and desires with a partner (or partners) and maximize the satisfaction of all at the first workshop in our Healthy Relationships Series, “Healthy Hook Ups”!

Join us for a FREE THAI FOOD DINNER and an open, honest, awesome workshop discussing these questions and many more!

Film Series: Orlando

1992. UK. Dir: Sally Potter. With Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane. 94 min.


Commanded by the dying Queen not to grow old, the eponymous nobleman (Swinton) obeys; through the centuries Orlando’s age never changes – though hir gender suddenly does. This wonderful journey was originally conceived by Virginia Woolf but comes to life via the film medium, effortlessly bounding across time and circumstance with a free spirit.
