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

Vigil for UNC Shooting

10997360_10206107110666526_2192549810024158129_nFrom Rizky Rahadianto ’15:

On Wednesday, 3 young Muslims, Deah Shaddy Barakat, his wife, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, were brutally murdered by a middle-aged white man.

Not only has mainstream media failed to cover the story, they have refrained from using the words “terrorism”, “hate crime”, “racism” or any other phrase that would describe this heinous incident for what it truly is.

Please join the Muslim/Arab/Middle-Eastern community as we grieve for this tragic loss. We will be holding a vigil on Sunday (2/15) in the Exley lobby at 8PM. If you would like to share your words, through a poem, short speech etc., you will be more than welcome to. Please email hfahmy[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you’re planning to do it.

Date: Sunday, Feb 15
Time: 8 PM

You’ve been asking. You’ve been begging. You’ve been tearing your hair out, overwhelmed with anxiety because you can’t get a decent morning coffee fix from your favorite neighborhood late-night student-run non-profit high-quality café. But now your prayers have finally been answered.


Join us for our grand opening this Sunday, Feb. 15, when we’ll be premiering our new daytime weekend hours: Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Yes, that covers that awkward morning-after I-just-need-to-get-through-this-hangover-and-start-my-homework time gap before Pi opens. Yes, we will still have FREE drip coffee available for you if you bring your own mug. Yes, we will also have our standard menu of lattes, cappuccinos, teas, and other steamed-milk-and-espresso goodies. Yes, we accept points. And yes, we’re excited too.

Starting Date: Sunday, February 15
Time: 10 AM – 2 PM
Place: Espwesso (Allbritton basement)
