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

Cheese-Making Club: Info Meeting

Via Dara Mysliwiec ’16:

WesCream wants to make your wildest cheese (making) dreams come true.

We’re a new student group that wants to spread the knowledge of how to make cheese on your own, which is totally, totally possible and not actually as hard as you think it is. We will also be making yogurt, creams, and hopefully some vegan cheeses too. Come join us at Outhouse this Sunday to learn about the basics of making cheese, and to have a conversation about what we want to do this semester as a group, because anything is possible (except Parmesan and Swiss, sorry).

If you can’t make it to the meeting but love cheese and think you’d want to help with some homemade cheese, you can email damysliwiec[at]wesleyan[dot]edu and she will hook. you. up.

(WesCream is NOT the Cheese Co-op, which is really great and whose cheese game is on-point.)

Date: Sunday, October 5
Time: 2-3 PM
Place: Outhouse
