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

2005-2007. USA. Dir: R. Kelly, Jim Swaffield. With R. Kelly. 89 min.

From the brilliant mind that brought you “Ignition (Remix)” emerges a timeless domestic melodrama ripe with sex, deceit, emotional twists – and a very shiny handgun.

Gallery Talk—“Animal Dignity and an Ethics of Sight—Photography by Isa Leshko and Frank Noelker”

animal_eventFrom the folks at the CFA:

Curated by Lori Gruen, Professor of Philosophy, Environmental Studies, and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. In contrast to the viral images of “cute” animals that fill digital spaces, photographers Isa Leshko and Frank Noelker sensitively portray captive animals in an evocative exhibition that asks viewers to reflect on our complicated relationships with other animals.

Ms. Leshko’s “Elderly Animals” presents unusual sights—the sometimes fierce, sometimes gentle dignity of aging farm animals who are rarely seen at the end of their natural lifespans. For his work “Captive Beauty,” Mr. Noelker spent nearly a decade visiting over 300 zoos all over the world and photographically captured the beauty, the dignity, the loneliness, and the absurdity of the animals we keep in artificial environments.
