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

TRAGIKINGDOM: A Medieval Skapopera (ska-pop-opera)

Audition for Really Really

10898139_10153005053672930_7599883130003902155_nFrom Haley Rauch ’15:

When morning-after gossip turns ugly, self-interest collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who’s a victim, who’s a predator, and who’s a Future Leader of America. All that’s certain is when the veneer of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, seven college seniors are left fending for themselves in a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare.

Auditions are on Sunday, 1/25, 6:15-9:15pm in Fayerweather 106 and Monday, 1/26, 8-11pm in Usdan 108. Bring a monologue if you have one, but sides will be provided! Come anytime – auditions will be no more than 10 minutes per person.

Callbacks are Wednesday, 1/28, 7-10pm in the Jones Room, and the show goes up April 23-25.

Questions? Contact hrauch[at]wesleyan[dot]edu or hanako[dot]rodriguez[at]gmail[dot]com.

Date: Sunday, January 25 and Monday, January 26
Time: 6:15-9:15 PM on Sunday and 8-11 PM on Monday
Place: Fayerweather 106 on Sunday, Usdan 108 on Monday
