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


Film Series: Pillow Talk

1959. USA. Dir: Michael Gordon. With Doris Day, Rock Hudson. 98 min.


Jan: a successful, self-reliant interior decorator. Brad: a Broadway composer and full-time womanizer. With only one telephone line between the two of them, a heated feud unfolds – followed, naturally, by romantic shenanigans. Catchy music, vibrant colors, and a playful approach to widescreen mark this sexy, quintessential rom-com, the first of three Day-Hudson pairings.

An Interview with Juan Wauters on Songwriting, Home, and His V-Day Show At Art House

131106-beets-juan-wautersQueens-based singer-songwriter Juan Wauters will be performing at Art House tomorrow, February 14, at 10 p.m. The New York Observer recently wrote that he was “one of the most idiosyncratic and inventive songwriters in New York today.” He was born in Uruguay before relocating with his family to the neighborhood of Jackson Heights in Queens, NY, and now considers Queens his home.

On February 4, Wauters released his first solo album, N.A.P. North American Poetry — an album full of good vibes, captivating lyrics, and a sound that you can drown into. In anticipation of his show at Wes tomorrow, Natasha spoke with the artist about his music, his experiences as musician, and about his home.
