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

Attention kpop and/or dance lovers:

If so, come to our informational meeting on Sunday! We will be rehearsing throughout the semester, prepping for our big show Mabuhay (Asian-Asian American Culture Show) during WesFest.

This is open to anyone on campus, no prior dance experience necessary.

We are going to move, so come in comfy clothing!

Silvernotes Auditions

-1

Samuel Stern ’17 writes in:

Attention Wespeople! Do you sing? Are you able to carry a tune with OR without a bucket? Does the phrase “andante con moto” sound vaguely meaningful to you? If you answered “yes” to any of those, read on: the Silvernotes, currently Wesleyan’s newest acapella group, are holding auditions! If you’re free between 2 and 4 on Saturday or Sunday, or between 9 and 11 pm on Tuesday the 3rd, come by Exley 139 with a song and any music-reading skills you might have. If you’re not free at any of those times and still want to audition (especially if you’re a tenor or bass; we need that low range) then email sastern[at]wesleyan[dot]edu and we’ll see what we can do.

Dates and times:
Saturday, January 31st: 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Sunday, February 1st: 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Audition for “The Chairman and I”

An invitation from Nora Canby ’17:

For years, Chairman Mao Zedong was able to balance it all: being an awesome dictator, pulling funny pranks, being a “silly” dad. But now, with Sarah Silverman maybe visiting the palace next weekend, Mao must swallow his pride and find a governess to help wrangle his six healthy teenagers. He hires Magnolia, an American tourist, but she turns out to be crazy and in love with him! Meanwhile, the teenagers face problems ranging from environmental activism to being a goth.

If you participate, a specially trained sophomore, junior, or senior will meet with you throughout the semester.

We work with students of all writing abilities and in all disciplines, and all services are, of course, free.
