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

Allbritton Talks: Unpaid Internships

allb_small
Are unpaid internships exploitative, or is free labor a fair trade for a learning experience? Why do businesses and organizations hire unpaid interns, and should students accept these positions? Who wins and loses in a society where unpaid internships are permitted?

We will consider these questions and more over pizza tomorrow at Allbritton Talks, a new conversation series addressing current events, controversial issues, and the enduring questions of public life. If you’ve got a hot-button issue or ethical quandary you’d like to pick apart as a group, send your suggestions to scapron(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

This series is sponsored by the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life.

Date: Friday, January 30
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM

Gabriel Garzon Montano and Don Froot @ Alpha Delt

a2703049719_10From Nicole Stanton ’15:

Gabriel Garzón-Montano at Alpha Delt this FRIDAY. Gabe has been turning heads in the past year with a unique blend of D’Angelo-like soul grooves carved out with an electronic twist. Listen to his debut release here.

Opening for Gabe & Co. is Don Froot. It’s that infamous student band blending styles from that groovy-latin-record-your-mom-plays-in-the-station-wagon to the jazz you’ve heard in the cafe down the block. Don Froot is that sweet, sweet song that keeps Georgia on your mind. Listen here.

From Tess Jonas ’15:

Audition for Wesleyan’s independently produced, outdoor production of Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM!

We are looking for a high-energy cast ready to bring some Shakespeare in the Park to Wes! No experience necessary, just a desire to perform and maybe act like an ass… (see what we did there?!)

Audition Dates:
Friday January 30 – 3-7PM – Jones Room
Saturday January 31 – 1-5PM – Jones Room
Callbacks will be Sunday February 1.

Please prepare ANYTHING that excites you! We want you to bring something that you’re comfortable with so that you aren’t reading off of a piece of paper.
