From Aaron Veerasuntharam ’14 and Maddy Oswald ’14:
Justin Trudeau. Jack Layton. Tim Hortons. If a single tear is falling from your eyes, you’re probably reading the right post. Come out this Sunday night to enjoy a hearty Canadian Thanksgiving dinner and to connect with some “international students” from north of the border.
P.S. If you happen to know a Canadian at Wes… tell them about this event! While you’re at it, explain the US government shutdown to them!
If you’re interested in this and/or future Canadian shenanigans shoot an email to aveerasuntha[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Nicole Updegrove ’14 sends out a call to international students:
Wesleyan 2020 names having a “more international” student body as a major institutional priority for the decade. However, international students attending Wesleyan face regularly a number of challenges that domestic students don’t always encounter, like international travel, visa bureaucracies, tax difficulties, employment bureaucracies, lack of American driver’s licenses, and difficulty returning home for holidays, among many others. I have recently heard reports that services for international students aren’t always what they ought to be.
If you are an international student with stories to tell, please contact nupdegrove(at)wesleyan(dot)edu with input about your experience with international student orientation, various policies, the international student office, and ideas about how WSA’s Student Affairs Committee can improve your experience and that of incoming international student classes.
