PSA from Nicole Stanton ’15:

You may have seen our wee takeover of Method Magazine recently. We’re
getting our hands dirty, once again.

This semester’s edition is an exploration of place. How can we use art
to make sense of our interactions with nature? We’re imagining the
foraging human, the entanglement of roots and city concrete, spaces of
dwelling.

Share with us how, why, and where you inhabit place.

Submissions due to loammag[at]gmail[dot]com by March 27th. Please holler with
questions or comments.

Date: Monday, March 2nd- Friday, March 27th

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
