Come hear about student forum ENG420: DIGITAL JOURNALISM, a semester-long course where we will focus on producing online content and developing our portfolio. This writing-intensive seminar will introduce students to a variety of forms, from the interview, to the profile, to data-based storytelling. We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.
Sophia Jennings ’16 and Ben Romero ’16 will be leading the student forum.

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!

the clinic. Here are the dates and locations of the info sessions:

Dr. Feryal Salem will talk about the need for the female voice in Islamic scholarship and give an outline of some contemporary Muslim women’s contributions to classical Islamic scholarship. She will look at how the existence of women’s voices has reframed traditional texts and their presentation. Dr. Salem is an Assistant Professor of Islamic Scriptures and Law; Co-Director of the Islamic Chaplaincy Program; and Director of the Imam and Muslim Community Leadership Program at the Hartford Seminary. This event is part of “Muslim Women’s Voices at Wesleyan.” Co-sponsored by Wesleyan’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life and Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life.
