Opening 1 

2 Opening 

For 105 years, the Wesleyan com- 
munity has taken pride in its offer- 
ing of friendliness and good will 
among its students. A diversified 
student body, from 33 states and 
24 foreign countries, lived, worked, 
and studied together in a family- 
like atmosphere. Consistently, 
Wesleyan students strived for ex- 
cellence in the classroom, on the 
field, or in extracurricular activi- 
ties. The Wesleyan classic experi- 
ence was inseparable from the ca- 
maraderie among its student body.

house after moving back to Wesleyan.

Wesleyan Students joined to- 
gether throughout the year to help 
others either on or off campus. 
Students developed their leader- 
ship and volunteerism skills from 
their experiences with such ac- 
tivities as Habitat for Humanity, 
tutoring, Make a Difference Day, 
Christmas on Campus, and the 
Parish House. While helping oth- 
ers, Wesleyan students also expe- 
rienced a special bond amongst 
themselves as they worked to- 
gether. This special bond became 
part of Wesleyan's unique Classic

Traditional activities, such as Ori- 
entation, Homecoming, and Hang- 
ing of the Greens, continued to 
serve as the foundation for life 
outside the classroom during the 
fall semester, but they added new 
twists of their own. Awards and 
graduation events were the focus 
of spring semester. Theatrical 
productions for both semesters 
added their own unique flavor to 
campus life. Regardless of the 
event, students were reminded of 
Wesleyan's heritage through these 
classic experiences. 


Returning students, freshmen, and staff 
joined together for an evening of enter- 
tainment by Playfair.

Welcome to Vvesleycirt 

he arrival of a new day, a 
new year, and a new fresh- 
man class were signs that 
the day that had been an- 
ticipated for so long had 
finally come. The new stu- 
dents and their parents 
were given a warm wel- 
come in the form of ban- 
ners lining Main Street of 
Buckhannon. Soon they 
began to move t.v.'s, re- 
frigerators, carpets, and 
tons of clothing into the 
living quarters to be 
known as home for the 
next four years. Convoca- 

tion and seminar group 
meetings were held before 
the parents finally left for 
home. The next few 

days were filled with ac- 
tivities. The up-beat 
Playfair, watching Inter- 
view With A Vampire in 
the Chapel Oval, dessert 
at seminar leaders' homes, 
registration, and the highly 
competitive and always ex- 
citing Wesleyan Olympics 
were among the plethora 
of activities in which the 
Class of 1999 participated. 
However, reality, and 
classes, were about to be- 
gin. Life at West Virginia 
Wesleyan had started with 
a classic beginning.

float judging occured in

prevailing as the winner. 
In another competition, 
campus organizations de-

Staying true to the theme 
of Around the World in a

Class made its mark in win- 
ning the banner contest. Co-

et in the early years of the 
Great Depression, The Di- 
viners, takes place in the 
homes, fields, and gather- 
ing sites around the mythi- 
cal town of Zion, Indiana. 
The plot is set around 
Buddy Layman, a mentally 
challenged youngster who 
refuses to go near water 
after having seen his 
mother drown. Buddy (Lisa 
Roop) is befriended by a 
former minister who the 
locals believe is a signal 
from the Lord that religion 

has returned to Zion. The 
play ends with a remarkably 
dramatic scene, effective 
through the use of lights and 
stage design. 

December brought 
about the opening of an al- 
ternative performance space 
in the former Jenkins Dining 
Hall. Bobby Gould in Hell, 
directed by F. Michael Poast, 
and A Doll's House, 1970, di- 
rected by Shadya Ballug, 
were the two one-act plays 
that inaugurated the new 
arena, which allowed for 
more imaginative and var- 
ied performances.

isitors to Wesleyan on the 
first Saturday in Decem- 
ber might wonder what 
hundreds of children were 
doing on campus. No, they 
weren't prospective stu- 
dents getting a head start 
on their college search; 
they were participating in 
"Christmas on Campus". 

With the aid of vol- 
unteer tour guides, chil- 
dren from all over the 
Buckhannon area partici- 
pated in numerous holiday 
activities around campus. 
With so many organiza 

tions participating, it was dif- 
ficult for each group to do 
everything, but many young- 
sters could be seen making 
Santa mobiles, creating 
marshmellow snowmen, or 
decorating Christmas cook- 
ies. Sponsoring organiza- 
tions, such as CLC , Wesleyan 
Service Corps, SNEA, and 
various other campus 
groups, worked to develop 
activities that children would 
enjoy. The highlight of the 
day was talking with Santa. 
Happy faces made the 
effort put forth by the organi- 
zations that participated well 
worth it.

raditions of "Hanging of the

Lessons and Carols" were 
two holiday events which 
gave Wesleyan a classic 
feeling around the holiday 

Early in December 
members of the Wesleyan 
community gathered in 
Kresge to fill chickenwire 
tubing with aromatic 
branches of pine. Eventu- 
ally the tubings were trans- 
ported to the balcony of 
Wesley Chapel where they 
were tied. Although the 

work was messy and hard, it 
was well worth seeing the 
beautiful greens and smell 
ing the scent of pine upon 
entering the Chapel. 

Now that the Chapel 
was in full array, "Festival oi 
Lessons and Carols" could 
proceed. On the first Sunday 
in December, students, fac- 
ulty, and friends filled Wesley 
Chapel to hear the Christ 
mas story, both in word, by 
members of the Wesleyan 
community, and in song, by 
Concert Chorale, Wesleyan 
Singers, and Chapel Choir. 
Christmas had arrived at 
Wesleyan in a classic style!

entire household is brought

Student Director 
Mike Mozer presented The 
Nerd in early May, starring 
Dr. Anthony Davies, Dr. 
Chip Keating, and Mark 
Norman. The entire cast 
created an uproar in 
Atkinson, complete with a 
dinner party gone awry and 
a nutty plan to get rid of the 
moronic nerd. The play 
concluded with cottage 
cheese scattered around a 
70's style living room.

which marked a signifi-

nursing students. 

In the fall, sopho-

program participated in 
the Capping Ceremony. 
They were given specially 

designed caps that repre-

presentation marked their 
official induction into the

College Nursing Program. 
In the spring, seniors 
who had met the require-

"pinned." This pin repre- 
sented their admission into

tudents have often said, 
"College would be great 
without classes!" As much 
as they may have wanted 
that wish to come true, it 
never became reality. 
However, activities, which 
had become an integral 
part of life on Wesleyan's 
campus, took away the 
stress of classes. Involve- 
ment in organizations, 
performinggroups, Greek 
life, athletics, and numer- 
ous other social events 
helped keep students and 
faculty on the go.

Board (CAB), an organiza-

which to participate. CAB 
supported stand-up come-

as provided musical acts 
like "Brownie Mary." Stu-

Wesleyan's athletes proved 
themselves superior in the state of 
West Virginia. Even though ath- 
letic department trophy cases 
were full of awards, Wesleyan ath- 
letes and coaches refused to sit on 
their laurels. In addition to nu- 
merous individual awards, sports 
teams boasted many titles that 
recognized their hard work. Wes- 
leyan was a powerful force with an 
astounding 11 out of 16 WVIAC 
championships. The four champi- 
onships in Men's and Women's 
Cross-Country and Track marked 
a first in not only Wesleyan's his- 
tory, but in the history of the 
WVIAC as well. Each of these vic- 
tories in athletics represented the 
classic champion of Wesleyan.

One would assume 
that in a 16-game season 
when a team does not lose 
until the fifteenth game 
that post-season play is im- 
minent. In the case of 
women's soccer and the 
team's 12-1-3 record, 
however, that assumption 
would be incorrect. 

Not making nation- 
als in the team's first year 
in Division II was the only 
disappointment that Libby 
Tobin suffered during her 
first year as head coach. 
"We deserved to play at 
nationals, so it was hard 
and disappointing to not 
make it." 

Blending veteran 
experience with youthful 
talent was an ob j ective that 
was attacked with fervor 
and success. With only 
three seniors in Cathrine 
Olsby, Keara Kilpatrick, 
and Tara Dejmal, there 

was a lot of pressure on 
the freshmen. 

Two of the top four 
scorers were newcomers 
Rena Lippa with 18 points 
and Juli Hanrath with 16. 
Two other freshmen, Pam 
Gale and Stacey Adams, 
also contributed to the 
team. Gale had 10 points 
while Adams, the goal- 
keeper, allowed only nine 
goals in 16 games and had 
a hand in all 1 1 shutouts. 

Jenny Newkirk led 
the squad in scoring with 
20 points and she was 
named honorable mention 
All-Northeast Region. 
Olsby closed out her stel- 
lar career with 16 points. 
Exclusion from nationals 
was frustrating, but Coach 
Tobin's spirit remained 
strong: "Individuals 
raised their level of play 
and I'm looking forward 
to next year."

Injuries to Dane Street, 
Brad Leszczynski, and Rob 
Harradine crippled the 
team from the opening 
weekend. Many inexperi- 
enced players were forced 
to compete against a diffi- 
cult schedule. 

Giving the season 
up for dead was a possibil- 
ity after a 5-7 start, but 
leaders such as Wilco 
Ravestyn, Tom Ulbraten, 
and David Burgess would 
not allow that. The 8-0-1 
surge to end the season 
proved that to Head Coach 

Gavin Donaldson: "The 
streak at the end showed a 
lot of character. It con- 
vinced me that even with 
an inconsistent line-up, we 
could play with anyone." 

All-WVIAC and 
All-Region performers 
Ulbraten, Burgess, and 
especially Ravestyn, keyed 
the unbeaten streak that 
ended with a 2-0 defeat of 
Charleston in the title 
game. Ravestyn was the 
leading scorer with 36 
points on 1 6 goals and four 
assists. Ulbraten netted 
nine goals and assisted 
eight others for 26 points. 
First-year goalkeeper 
Carlos Rudolph played 
superbly by allowing 18 
goals in 16 games. 

Despite injuries 
and bad luck, the 'Cats 
showed the necessary 
character to win a title in a 
season worth saving.

Just when it was 
thought that the volleyball 
program had reached its 
peak through the NAIA, 
the women finished 39-3 
and fifth in the nation in a 
higher division. 

After a ninth-place 
finish in the 1994 NAIA 
Tournament, there were 
hopes for a solid finish in 
the team's inaugural 
NCAA Division II season: 
"I'm not surprised by our 
success," said Head Coach 
Tia Brandel, "but every- 
one else seems to be." 

Arguably the most 
prepared Bobcat team to 
enter Division II athletics, 
the team has maintained 
one of the most impres- 
sive streaks in the nation. 
The team's 80-match 
WVIAC winning streak is 
the longest active in Divi- 
sion II, and the second 
longest of all-time . The last 

time the women lost to a 
conference opponent was 
in the championship of 
1990. five full seasons ago. 

Great coaches 
must combine with great 
players for a winning pro- 
gram, and this season was 
no exception. Four seniors 
provided leadership and 
fine play, while a host of 
younger talent carried the 
statistical load. 

Becca Fleshman, 
Afarin Shahidi, Carly 
Pariseau, and Marti Wiblin 
played their final matches 
in orange and black. Un- 
derclassmen such as Kelly 
Sabol, Susan Wren, and 
Julie Kasprzak provided a 
strong foundation for the 

"It's going to be 
difficult to stay on top," 
Brandel said. "It will take 
a lot of energy and sup- 
port to keep us there."

With surprisingly 
dominant women and typi- 
cally dominant men, the 
cross-country teams 
claimed the rare distinc- 
tion of dual WVIAC cham- 
pions and also did well in 
regional competition. 

Five out of the 
seven top women dawned 
the orange and black for 
the first time, and four of 
the five earned all-WVIAC 
honors. The top finisher 
was Summer Finnigan in 
second place, who finished 
just 19 seconds out of first. 

Newcomer Carrie 
Holdinsky crossed the line 
in fourth, and fellow rook- 
ies Rebecca Farrington, 
Heather Young, and 
Heather Zakrzewski fin- 
ished fifth, seventh, and 
eighth, respectively. Their 
season closed with a 14th 
place finish in the region. 

Performing as ex- 

pected was the men's 
team. They won their sec- 
ond consecutive confer- 
ence title. Eric Chandler 
won the meet for the sec- 
ond year. Chandler was 
also named "Runner of the 
Year" for the second time . 

Four more 'Cats 
claimed all-WVIAC hon- 
ors and finished third, 
fourth, and fifth. Bill 
Carney, Chris Sappey, and 
Derek Finigan closed out 
the top five and Sawne 
Armstrong crossed the 
line eighth. Their season 
ended with a sixth-place 
finish at regionals. 

Head Coach Jesse 
Skiles was ecstatic about 
both teams and said that 
whatever happened at 
regionals was an added 
bonus: "These teams had 
a shot. This is our first time 
in Division II, so whatever 
we do will be a record."

Three short years is 
all that it took to lead Bobcat 
football to the peak of the 
WVIAC mountain. By finish- 
ing 8-2 the gridders claimed 
their first conference title in 
33 seasons. 

Two plays illustrated 
the character of the confer- 
ence champions, a team 
which saw starting quarter- 
back Larry Drugmand in- 
jured after the third game. 
Play number one occurred in 
that game when Eric Myers 
converted an impossible 43- 
yard rain-soaked field goal in 
the closing seconds. Perform- 
ing well under extreme pres- 
sure became a common oc- 

The second play was 
the most exciting, since it 
came with the title and an 
undefeated home record on 

the line. Down 26-31 against 
West Liberty, the squad had 
over half a field to cover in 50 
seconds. On fourth down 
quarterback Scott Gasper hit 
a streaking Robert Epps for a 
43-yard gain. Gasper com- 
pleted the comeback with a 
15-yard pass to star receiver 
Brian Dugan. 

Gasper took control 
of the offense immediately 
when he threw for 382 yards 
in his first collegiate start. 
Beginning with WV Tech, 
Gasper led the 'Cats to six 
straight wins: "It was an op- 
portunity and I felt I was 
ready," said Gasper. "Ihada 
lot to prove to myself and ev- 
eryone else." 

With a 22-8 record the 
last three seasons, the entire 
team proved it could regain 
its prominence in the WVIAC.

Senior leadership 
and youthful vigor led the 
Bobcat women's basketball 
team to a 14-14 record, 12-7 
in the conference. 

Seniors Cathy 

Koenig, Lisa Roberts, and 
Tonya Wharton provided 
strong play and leadership, 
while freshmen Christina 
Jost and Amanda Rafferty 
sparked the squad late in 
the season. Sophomore Car- 
rie Newcomb. as well as jun- 
iors Lina Robinson and Jen- 
nifer Skinner, also steadied 
play both inside and outside. 

An integral part of 
the streak was Koenig, who 
finished her stellar career 
by earning a place in the 
record books. Koenigmoved 
into third place on 
Wesleyan's all-time scoring 
list and into first place in 
career rebounds. This sea- 
son she averaged 15.9 points 
and nine rebounds, both of 

which led the team. 

Roberts continued 
hertrend of improving each 
year by averaging 12.9 
points and eight rebounds. 
Wharton had her finest of- 
fensive season by averag- 
ing 5.7 points, due mostly to 
improved shooting. She 
also led the squad in steals 
with 2.5 per game. 

Robinson's 8.6 
points per game was third 
on the team, as was her 7.2 
rebounding average. Jost

point threat, while Rafferty

prominence in the NCAA

accolades in the WVI AC and

to win both the WVIAC and 
Penn-Ohio crowns in the

mer of the Year with one 
first and two second place 
finishes as the women took 
the victory by 145.5 points. 

Four other swim- 
mers were named All-

won the 200-yard butterfly; 
Shannon McKinney took

crown; and Karen Brown

ginia Intercollegiate Ath- 
letic Conference (WVIAC) 
by bringing home its fifth 
consecutive conference 
title and sixth in seven 
years. The powerful Bob- 
cat women swept the tour- 
nament in Summersville, 
scoring four consecutive 
shutouts over Concord 
College, Salem-Teikyo,

twice. Failure to be invited

competition was the 
team's only blemish to an

Wesleyan's base- 
ball team won its fourth con- 
ference title in six years and 
earned an appearance in 
Division II regionals with a 
successful season many 
thought impossible. A pitch- 
ing staff that was among the 
nation's best combined 
with timely hitting to pro- 
duce a 28-11 campaign. 

"To be honest, I was 
a little surprised that we 
received a bid in our first 
year of Division II competi- 
tion," said Wesleyan Head 
Coach Randy Tenney. "I 
think we deserved to play in 
regionals, and we played 
hard and did our best to rep- 
resent the WVIAC." With 
two outs, the bases loaded 
and the score tied in the 
eighth inning of the WVIAC 
Championship game, short- 
stop Lou Capolupo an- 
swered his call to glory with 
a triple that led Wesleyan 

past West Liberty 8-3 to win 
the conference title. 

Wesleyan forced 
West Liberty into a second 
game by defeating the 
Hilltoppers 11-1 in the first 
match-up. Freshman Den- 
nis Emison threw a com- 
plete game five-hitter in his 
fourth varsity appearance 
of the season. Emison 
struck out seven and 
walked two in nine innings. 

Four Bobcats were 
involved in post-season 
awards. With a 9-0 record 
and 1.38 e.r.a, pitcher Eric 
Hott was named the 1996 
WVIAC Pitcher of the Year.

Wesleyan swept the

fifth consecutive title for the 
women and the second in 
three years for the men. 

Wesleyan's women 
won with 165 points, outdis- 
tancing runner-up Glenville 
by 113 points. Wheeling-Je- 
suit finished third (36), fol- 
lowed by West Liberty (19) 
and West Virginia State (1). 
Nine different athletes 
scored in double figures for 
Wesleyan, led by long jump 
and high jump champion 
Amy McCall with 2 1 . 

Heide Karley scored 
1 8 points, sweeping all three 
throws en route to Field Ath- 
lete of the Year honors. Meg 
Delano scored 17.5 and 
Track Athlete of the Year 
Jen Johnson tallied 13.5. 

Wesleyan's men 
were sparked by the trio of 
distance runner Eric Chan- 

dler, jumper Mony Keth, 
and thrower Tom Damiani. 
Keth was named WVIAC 
Field Athlete of the Year as 
the trio accounted for 41 of 
the team's victorious 105 
points. Glenville's men 
finished a close second with 
92 points. 

Wesleyan became 
the first school in league 
history to win both cross- 
country titles and both track 
titles in the same year. 
These four titles move Jesse 
Skiles' career total to 14, 
the most of any coach in 
league history. 

"I can't say enough 
about how proud I am of 
these athletes. The confer- 
ence meet typifies what the 
teams did throughout the 
season," said Skiles. "The 
athletes took it upon them- 
selves to overachieve and 
become champions, and I 
could not be more proud."

The faculty and staff at Wesleyan 
were widely considered extremely 
influential when the role of aca- 
demics was considered. With a 
large number of faculty holding 
terminal degrees, students were 
assured a top-notch education. In 
addition, the physical plant kept 
the campus intact by maintaining 
the physical environment in which 
students and faculty could work 
together. Additionally, office staff 
members and administrative as- 
sistants helped students with tasks 
ranging from cashing checks to 
ensuring students' graduation re- 
quirements had been met. Each of 
these faculty and staff members 
helped make the Wesleyan 'ma- 
chine' function smoothly.

October 13, 1995 marked the inauguration of Wesleyan's 
seventeenth president, William R. Haden. The occasion was a 
'celebration of Founder's Day and the investiture of the President.' 
'I felt the day, occasion and ceremony were a confirmation of all that 
is good about Wesleyan," said President Haden, in a reflection on his 
inauguration. Work fast, change speeds and throw strikes was Haden's 
'rule of thumb.' In his inaugural speech, he described a sense of community at Wesleyan 
that recognized the past, present and future. 

The Orange Line, a processional composed of alumni who were present for the 
convocation, served as a link between the current student body and those students who 
came before. "The Orange Line reminds us that there is a history," said Haden. 

"I have great 1 expectations for the 

future of the college fm^ f^ f* because it is so strong, 

and because it brings a /% ^*± great tradition of

Rich Clemens, associate professor of business and computer 
science, was "absolutely amazed "that he was awarded the out- 
standing faculty member this past October. Clemens has had a long 
history of teaching others. "I remember when I was ten or twelve years 
old. my older brother showed me how to use a slide rule. In turn I had to 
show someone else how to use it. That person said to me. You're going to be 
a teacher one day. " While in undergraduate school, Clemens had an excellent 
teacher who had the ability to answer a question before the student asked. "I'm not sure 
I'm quite at that point yet to tell visually what the student wants." Clemens might not 
know what students want before they ask; however, he is sure of what methods to use 
to provoke students to question what they're taught. "The methods and tools that I use 
include case studies, so the student can attack problems from different angles. The use 
of technology in the classroom will also enhance their education." It was this objectivity 
and professionalism in the classroom that earned him the Outstanding Faculty Member

Wesleyan consistently prided itself on its academic 
integrity. This pride was demonstrated in a variety of 
academic opportunities and successes, such as internship 
programs, contract learning, and cultural exchanges. President 
Haden felt, since the world was becoming more interdependent, 
that Wesleyan should be "strengthening more of these international 
ties for the next academic year." In addition to the established international 
opportunities offered to Wesleyan students, Haden saw technology as a way to 
involve students in a global atmosphere. With the graphics-based internet 
connections established in the spring, and with the purchase of equipment 
that would allow all students to participate in the 'information superhighway,'

The charge put to me was — build the program." Dan 
Keegan, chairperson of the art department and associate professor 
of art, knew that building a concrete art program meant developing 
a curriculum that was relevant to students' needs. Soon after Keegan's 
arrival in 1992. he put into action a marketing plan that included scholar- 
ship opportunities and an effort to contact each incoming student who was 
interested in the art department. Keegan's philosophy was, "show them the 
program is good, and you will get support." Since he needed more space for this 
expanded program. Keegan was given the first floor of McCuskey so that he could further 
develop the department. Construction began soon after. Within four years, evidence of 
the expression: " Build it and they will come " has proven it to be valid. "We had significant 
growth with substantial support from this college and its administration," said Keegan, 
"and now we have students who are serious about art and are challenged to be their 
creative best."

Twelve months had passed and the construction of 
Wesleyan's new dining hall was finally completed. Dedi- 
cated during commencement weekend, the French A. See 
Dining Center gave students a new atmosphere in which to eat. 
With larger accomodations, Aladdin was able to prepare better 
quality foods. The kitchen was three times larger than the kitchen in 
Jenkins Hall. According to Paul Clawson, director of Aladdin Food 
Services, students felt less crowded when they ate because the dining area was 
much larger, as well. Increased cooler and freezer sizes gave Aladdin more 
flexibility. "The greatest part of this new facility was all the space we had," said 
Mr. Clawson. "We used more service areas that allowed us to offer a wider 
variety of foods and we received a very positive response from the community. 
Everything was nicer, bigger, and more spacious. " With a sky view, large open 
windows and more seating, students enjoyed their time eating and socializing 
in the dnew dining center.

Even after cleaning up the rubble left after the construction 
of the new dining hall, the physical plant staff was still hard at 
work on several projects. Despite remodeling the former Jenkins 
Cafeteria into the Jenkins Arena, a black-box mini-theater for 
small productions; renovating the music building in preparation for 
national accreditation; and re-vamping the electrical wiring of the 
entire campus, Terrence Dobberstein, director, and his staff continued 
serving the campus community without a hitch. In addition to finishing the 
new cafeteria and attending to the everyday needs of the campus, the physical 
plant staff spent much of the year preparing for the renovation of the Campus 
Center, slated for the '96-'97 school year. Plans for the Campus Center 
included a non-alcoholic pub , a much larger bookstore with areas for lounging 
and reading, and a state-of-the-art performance area on the top floor. No 
matter what needs were assessed on campus, the physical plant staff was 
efficient and competent at addressing the problem.

Seniors expand their knowledge through . . . 

Capstone Courses 

It's three o'clock in the morning. You 
sit up, sweating and terrified. Reams of 
research are hurtling through your head 
and you wonder if the previous evening's 
writing was good enough. This worry does 
not belong solely to the ^^^^^^^^^^ 
members of the honors 
program. It becomes a part 
of everyday life when ap- 
plied to students' senior 
seminar courses. 

The capstone class 
starts to nag at students 
sometime duringtheir jun- 
ior year when they realize ^^^^^^^^^^ 
they have to take the capstone class to fill a 
requirement and that they must chose their 
own topic to research. 

". . .presenting is worse 
than preparing, but 
everyone gets through 
it. . .even without cof- 
fee and vivarin." 

Whether attempting a creative writ- 
ing thesis, directing a performance for the 
dramatic arts department, or presenting 
a paper on "Stress Factors in Trestle Steel 
Beam Bridges," seniors are expected to 
show expertise in their field 
of study. 

Life falls into patterns of 
research, writing, and revis- 
ing. Meetings and gripe ses- 
sions can alleviate some of 
the tension, but worry still 
consumes much of the stu- 
dents' time. For some 
^^==^ people, presenting the final 
product is worse than its preparation, but 
eventually, most students successfully 
complete the process.

Xooking forward may mean advancing to 

Graduate School 

Sometime in the beginning or middle 
of their sophomore year, students ask: "So, 
what are you going to do when you gradu- 
ate?" And the common response is: "Gradu- 
ate?! I'm not even done ^^^=^^^^^ 
with my second year yet! 
How do I know?" 

Some people are 
lucky enough to be in a 
major where they can im- 
mediately get a job upon 
graduation. Others take a 

few years off to work with 

the Peace Corps, an amuse- ^ " 
ment park, or even McDonald's. But most 
people have to find a graduate school and 
further their education in hopes of getting a 
high-paying job. 

"Some people are 
lucky enough to . . . 
get a job immediately 
upon graduation." 

First, students must face the usual 
standardized tests, such as the GRE, LSAT, 
MCAT, GMAT, and the NTE. Some stu- 
dents even take these tests more than 
^— once in order to raise their 
scores. After scores are pro- 
cessed, students then focus 
on completing the applica- 
tion process: references, 
transcripts, and the absolute 
worst — the essay or letter of 

Eventually, everything 
— ^^~ ^^~ gets mailed and received, 
and if you're lucky, you'll be accepted and 
can postpone paying off student loans for 
another few years. If not, it's rumored that 
Sea World is hiring.

Some of Wesleyan's seniors will earn 
a Bachelor of Arts degree while others will 
earn a Bachelor of Science. Unfortu- 
— — nately, no matter what de- 
gree a person has, there is 
no denying that the j ob mar- 
ket is slim. Wesleyan stu- 
dents choose to go to a pri- 
vate institution which offers 
smaller classes and more 
individual attention, both of 
which make for a better edu- 
----------- cation. Upon graduation, 

Wesleyan seniors will have the means, 
knowledge, skills, and countless opportu- 
nities to demonstrate their abilities.

Volunteering and community ser- 
vice are a big part of West Virginia 
Wesleyan's atmosphere. Many students 
take part in the numerous service orga- 
nizations on campus. This allows stu- 
dents the opportunity to volunteer their 
time and expertise in order to help better 
the community and the college. 

One of the bigger service organi- 
zations on campus is the Bonner pro- 
gram, which consists of students who 
work an additional forty hours a month 
per student to assist the community of 
Buckhannon. The program covers ev- 
erything from reading to students in the 
schools, tutoring kids in the evenings.

and visiting with the elderly in their 

Other major service organiza- 
tions on campus are the Wesleyan Ser- 
vice Corps, Kappa Phi. a service soror- 
ity, and Sigma Theta Epsilon.a service 
fraternity. These groups assist in com- 
munity clean-ups as well as donations to 
flood victims or adopting a family for 

As long as there are people who 
need a helping hand and a kind smile, 
Wesleyan will always harbor many will- 
ing students to help provide for local 
people and their needs.

However distant Buckhannon 
might seem, students always have the 
world at their fingertips. With 
Wesleyan's updated VAX system, which 
allows for more users and faster response, 
students and faculty can now interact 
with colleagues, family and friends all 
over the world. 

Internet access allows students 
and professors to research special topics 
for classes through the library's updated 
computer system and rather than deal- 
ing with "snail mail", e-mail helps speed 
up the communication process between 
the students and faculty, as well as mem- 


bers of different campus organizations. 
Campus offices can also use the benefi- 
cial up-grading to their advantage for 
accessing and recording grades, finan- 
cial aid statements and bills. 

Students can be found using 
Wesleyan's VAX system at all hours of 
the day, whether it be in a dorm room or 
one of the three computer labs located on 
campus. In an attempt to make the 
Internet available to all students, the cam- 
pus is gearing up for fiber-optic installa- 
tion in dorms. As Wesleyan's techno- 
logical links continue to grow, so does its 
place in the cyber-world.

A Head 


Looking ahead to graduation and 
what is to follow that triumphant day, 
students see job hunting in their very 
near future. Finding a job is imparative 
to paying back all of those loans that help 
students to attain their higher education. 

West Virginia Wesleyan provides 
much financial aid to its students. Some 
of that aid might come in the form of 
scholarships, grants, orworkstudies. The 
workstudy program is very popular 
among students because it allows them 
to earn money and to work on campus. 
There are many different areas students 

can choose from to help fulfill their 
workstudy hours. Many students work in 
their field of study, such as the theatre or 
the education department while others 
might choose to work in the library or 
post office in order to expand their skills. 
No matter where students choose 
to earn their money, the workstudy pro- 
gram provides needed assistance to of- 
fices and faculty all over campus while 
helping the students to pay their way 
through college and gain helpful knowl- 
edge that may one day serve as a benefit 
in finding a job in the real world.

College is not just place to get a 
higher education. Students need to be 
able to get their minds off the stress of 
academic life. 

Everyone will find something that 
best suits his/her entertainment needs 
and to run off some of the extra energy. 
Students can enjoy comedians, movies, 
D.J. dances, coffee houses, and various 
musical and performing arts productions 
as well as all sporting events. 

Students also go off campus and 
find activities around town. Some people 
enjoy going to the various fraternities to 
catch a glimpse of what Greek life is 
partially about. Many people like going 

to Hardees for a midnight run and a little 
relief from their studies. Some people 
like to go to the mall to see the movies, to 
shop, or to simply browse. The Campus 
Activities Board sets up ski trips and mall 
trips so the students who don't have trans- 
portation can get off campus for an after- 
noon and still have spare change left for 
those midnight snack runs to Sheetz. 

The students at Wesleyan are 
never bored due to the many activities 
that are at their disposal. So, when 
students feel the weight of classes bear- 
ing down on them, there is always an 
escape enabling students to get a new 
wind and start again.

After paying money for tuition, 
books, phone bills and pizza, college stu- 
dents never seem to have much extra 
money. However, most students seem to 
come up with enough money to acquire a 
whole new wardrobe by the time they 
graduate. The average attire of Wes- 
leyan students consists of t-shirts, 
sweatshirts and jeans. The catch is that 
these t-shirts and sweatshirts can be 
adorned in various logos and designs. 

Between the five fraternities, the 
four sororities and the many organiza- 
tions on Wesleyan's campus, many dif- 
ferent sets of letters and initials can be 
seen on everything from shirts and jack- 
ets - even hats and keyrings. Also every 

sport, whether it be football, swimming 
or basketball, displays its name, number 
and titles with just as much pride and 
school spirit. 

Students also added to their ward- 
robe clothes that promoted an event or 
fund-raiser. For example, the fraterni- 
ties always sell t-shirts for their end-of- 
the-year get-togethers and the residents 
of Jenkins Hall sold t-shirts in memory of 
Aaron Jackson, a freshman basketball 
player who was killed in a car accident 
earlier in the school year. So no matter 
how broke college students seem to be, 
there is always a little extra money hid- 
ing somewhere for those comfortable 
clothing needs.

The word friend is a noun defined 
as a person attached to another by feel- 
ings of affection or personal regard. We 
all have friends and no matter how differ- 
ent they are friends always fall under the 
same definition. 

Friends are an important part of 
our lives and college is a time when best 

friends are made. For most people, these 
friendships will last long after the college 
years. True friends are always there 
whether a shoulder is needed or laugh- 
ter and smiles are shared. While the 
reason for being at college is academics, 
friends are an integral part of college life 
for everybody.

The first year of college can be a 
little scary. No, let's face it; it can be very 
scary. There are hundreds of new faces 
to meet, new classes to take and lots of 
new choices to make. . and all without 
Mom and Dad. It's taking that big step 
from home and everything that's famil- 
iar to a whole new world full of people 
and places that are unknown and unfa- 
miliar that make the freshman year the 
most challenging. 

College classes have a different 
structure from high school classes. In- 
stead of six or seven different classes per 
day, students may only attend two or 
three classes on opposing days, and 
classes are also more intense. 

College is a great opportunity to 
meet new people from all different walks 
of life. Everyone is in the same position 
of leaving home and starting college, so 
everyone starts the year with something 
in common. Many students find devoted, 
lifelong friends in college and this adds to 
the excitement of meeting new people. 

College is a good opportunity for 
people to get a taste of the "real world", 
while not having all of the pressures like 
paying bills and going to work. College is 
a big transition for many students, but it 
does get better as seniority and experi- 
ence are gained. Hopefully, higher edu- 
cation prepares students for what awaits 
them after graduation.

"Three more weeks!" "Eight 
days left!" These are common phrases 
on campus that can be heard all year 
long. There is always somebody going 
somewhere. Whether students are going 
away for a week, a weekend, or just a day, 
breaks are just what the doctor ordered! 

Everyone needs a break now and 
then and it's not hard to tell when one is 
approaching. Students may get irritable 
and tired and all of them count down the 
days. Some students leave Wesleyan and 
sunny Buckhannon to go to the beach or 
a resort, while others might be going to a 
concert or going skiing. Then there are 
those students who are happy just going 

home to visit with family and friends, to 
get a home-cooked meal, and to get some 
much needed sleep in their own bed. 

The hustle and bustle of college 
life is continuous, from late-night study 
groups cramming for a big test the next 
day to staying up listening to a friend 
who's had a bad day or typing a paper 
until two o'clock in the morning when it's 
due the next day. 

College life can be very chaotic 
and students canbecome very worn down 
by all of the stress and activity that comes 
with it. Somehow it's all worth it when 
students get a much needed break from 
the college scene.

16 Greeks 

Many members of the student body 
found friendship and support in 
one of Wesleyan's Greek organi- 
zations. With four sororities and 
five fraternities, many students 
found campus life influenced by 
the Greeks in innumerable ways. 
From the service performed for 
the Wesleyan and Buckhannon 
communities to the social activi- 
ties provided to students on- and 
off-campus, Greeks were an inte- 
gral part of life at college. Each of 
these groups instilled a sense of 
brotherhood, sisterhood, and to- 
getherness in its members, and it 
was this sense of companionship 
that caused many students to "go

Theta xi 

Theta Xi was founded on April 29, 1 864, at Rensselaer Polytech- 
nic Institute. Wesleyan's chapter, Kappa Tau, has existed since 
a merger with Kappa Sigma Kappa in 1962. In the fall, it 
initiated three students into its membership. Also, Theta Xi 
had a special initiate. Alfred Moye, a member of Kappa Sigma 
Kappa in 1962 who was barred membership in Theta Xi during 
the merger, was finally given membership into the fraternity. 
In the spring, Theta Xi gained four new members, one of whom 
was the third person in his family to be a Theta Xi brother. 
Throughout both semesters, the brothers worked hard and 
were dedicated to excellingin intramurals, philanthropic work, 
and scholastics. Their efforts earned them the President's Cup, 
which is given to the year's best fraternity. After graduation, a 
massive renovation of their house at 87 South Kanawha Street 
will begin. The project was planned to include a new electrical 
system, a modernized kitchen, an improved fire alarm system, 
and new doors and windows.

Theta chi 

Theta Chi was founded in 1856 at Norwich University in Nor- 
wich, Vermont. This year, despite a few major obstacles, the 
Delta Gamma Chapter was reinstalled here at Wesleyan. Since 
then, the charter has accumulated over 1500 total community 
service hours, has been nominated for the West Virginia State 
Community Service Award, and has grown into the largest 
fraternity on campus with a total of 59 brothers. In the spring, 
Theta Chi initiated 21 new members, each of whom was ex- 
pected to learn the ingredients, requirements, and accom- 
plishments of the Theta Chi Fraternity. With fast growth and a 
great amount of effort, the fraternity gave all to earn respect 
from the college as a whole. Within two-weeks of the end of 
spring semester, Theta Chi finally proved its worth to the 
campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College. In this time period, 
they snagged the Greek Week trophy, won the Spring Sing 
championship in the Fraternity Division, and received the 
charter that they had fought so hard to regain.

Kappa Alpha Order was founded in 1865 at Washington 
College, which is now known as Washington and Lee Col- 
lege, in Lexington, Virginia. The Beta Chi Chapter of Kappa 
Alpha was founded at Wesleyan in 1 929. The Order is known 
for its strong campus and community involvement. The 
brothers participated in a number of service projects 
throughout the year. Some of these included Hanging of the 
Greens, Christmas on Campus, and the Children's Festival. 
They also participated in a Brother/Sister Auction with 
Alpha Xi Delta. Another of their focal points was their 
philanthropy, which was the Muscular Distrophy Founda- 
tion. Kappa Alpha is called an order and not a fraternity for 
one specific reason: an order is a society of individuals 
united by possession of a mutual distinction, the recogni- 
tion of something previously acquired. For this reason, 
Kappa Alpha is a strong organization built mainly on broth-

semester kicked off with Homecoming where the Delta Xi 
chapter at West Virginia Wesleyan College celebrated its 30th 
anniversary. Over 100 alumni from across the United States 
came to participate in the festivities. The fall semester's activi- 
ties included a dinner with President William Haden at the 
fraternity's house and three service projects. For these projects, 
Chi Phi worked with both Adopt-A-Highway and Hanging of the 
Greens. Its philanthropy was the West Virginia River Coalition. 
The fraternity was home to many student leaders and contin- 
ued to be a vital part of campus life. It gained three new 
members in fall and ten in the spring. The spring semester 
began with the annual Chi Phi Hell's Angels Party, which was 
a big success. Some of its members also helped out with the 
college's annual Sunshine Fest. Chi Phi finished the year 
strong by placing third in the Fraternity Division of Greek

The 1995-1996 school year seemed to be a time of great 
change for the Greek system at West Virginia Wesleyan 
College. Fall semester began with a change in leadership as 
new housing employee Betsy Chimock took over the posi- 
tion of Greek Advisor. Under her control, many new rules 
were established, including stronger regulation of alcohol. 
In January, Zeta Tau Alpha began a massive restructuring. 
With help from the national office , a special J-term pledging 
period was held for women specifically selected for rush. As 
a result, ZTA entered the spring semester at nearly double 
its fall semester size. In the fall, Theta Chi, a fraternity that 
had been closed down, formed an interest group desiring to 
be reinstated. When they finally regained their charter, this 
group had grown to almost 40 members. Throughout the 
year, many changes occurred within each sorority and fra- 
ternity. Each of these changes proved to be a movement 
toward a bigger and better Greek system.

This year's Greek Week began on Sunday, April 21, and 
ran through Saturday, April 27. Both fraternities and 
sororities participated in a myriad of events that, through 
fun and friendly competition, brought the brothers and 
sisters closer together. These events included: volleyball, 
water polo, wrestling, track, bed races, bowling, Jello 
eating, boat races, tug-o-war, and a three-legged race. The 
sororities also had an egg and balloon toss and a sack race. 
Participants in Greek Week also took part in Greek Ser- 
vice Day. On Friday, April 26, many sorority and fraternity 
members donated their time to work at the Salvation 
Army, the Child Development Center's Field Day, the 
Historical Society, and the local Head Start. When the 
week finally came to a close, Alpha Xi Delta had taken first 
place in the Sorority Division. In the Fraternity Division, 
Theta Chi took home the trophy, upsetting KA's twelve 
years domination.

staying there. The sisters also made Thanksgiving baskets for 
the needy families in Buckhannon in correlation with the 
Salvation Army. During Christmas on Campus, Alpha Delta Pi 
sisters gathered in the suite to share in the Christmas spirit by 
making Christmas tree ornaments. On Make-A-Difference 
Day, they painted the dining area at the Upshur County Senior 
Center. They also participated in Special Olympics, clothing 
drives, and collecting tabs. Alpha Delta Pi received second 
place in the sorority section of the annual Spring Sing and third 
place overall. Its director, Mona Barkat, received the Best 
Director Award. Through hard work and dedication, Alpha 
Delta Pi once again established itself as a crucial part of

not only raised monetary support, but spirits as well. One of the 
chapter's accomplishments was winning Greek Week. In the 
fall, they also participated in the Homecoming float and banner

dation. West Virginia Wesleyan's Delta Upsilon Chapter re- 
ceived a major donor award for its fund-raising efforts during 
the past school year. The Zetas executed many service projects 
throughout the year. These projects included: Mr. Wesleyan (a 
male "beauty" contest), the Don't Be a Fool Campaign, Adopt- 
A-Highway, Halloween programs, Christmas on Campus, Make 
a Difference Day, Youth Serve America Day, and Special Olym- 
pics. ZTA saw a major change this past year. With a special J- 
Term pledge class, the sorority began a movement toward 
higher scholastic standards and an improved image. In Janu- 
ary and the Spring, they welcomed 21 new members, thus 
putting into motion the formation of a bigger and better Zeta

Each semester, Wesleyan students 
found themselves searching for 
activities in which to participate 
that surpassed the daily studying 
ritual. In addition to attending 
classes, students were active in 
groups that fostered entertain- 
ment, community service, and 
religious life, as well as several 
other areas of interest to the cam- 
pus community. With academic 
honoraries, service organizations, 
Christian Life Council, and cam- 
pus music and theater, members 
of the Wesleyan community had 
many opportunities to keep them

Cwidixm £(je Council 

Christian Life Council, the "um- 
brella" organization for all of the reli- 
gious groups on campus, had been a 
vital part of campus activities for sev- 
eral years. As the school year pro- 
gressed, the Council increased its in- 
volvement with monthly recreation 
nights and worship services. 

Under CLC's "umbrella" was a 
diverse selection of Christian-oriented 
organizations. SigmaThetaEpsilonand 
Kappa Phi were Christian service or- 
ganizations devoted to fellowship and 
helping the community. Loveshine was 
a performance-oriented group that 
taught the gospel through drama, mu- 
sic, and dance both on- and off-campus. 
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes 
and Wesley Fellowship were organiza- 
tions formed to allow members to spend 
time together in a Christian atmo- 
sphere. InterVarsity provided a time 
and place for students to come together 
and share their beliefs. 

With its own activities and those 
of its sub-organizations, CLC played an 
important role in campus life.

A helping hand from. 

Wm&fGM, Service Cotifti 

Along with school work, many stu- 
dents at Wesleyan found that they wanted 
to give their free time to helping others. 
Several organizations gave students the 
opportunity to participate in community 
service on-campus and in the Buckhan- 
non area, as well. 

The Wesleyan Service Corps, WSC, 
functioned as an overall coordinator of 
service functions. In addition to organiz- 
ing most campus-wide service opportuni- 
ties, WSC gave each of the groups in- 
volved in service the opportunity to send 
representatives to meetings to help plan 
service events. 

Two of the major service opportu- 
nities this year involved many organiza- 
tions as well as individual students. Make 
a Difference Day was the day set aside 
nationally for service to the community. 
Additionally, Wesleyan students had the 
opportunity to participate in Service 
Week, a week set aside each April to help 
meet several needs of the Buckhannon 

Whether it was with the Wesleyan 
Service Corps, or individually, students 
had no trouble finding opportunities to 
serve the community.

Students' needs fulfilled by... 

Academic JlowwueA, 

Since the central focus of campus 
life was academics, it was only fitting 
that department honoraries recognize 
those students who excelled in their 
chosen field of study. 

Almost all academic departments 
on campus had honoraries that recog- 
nized the effort and success of these 
students. In addition to these 
honoraries, clubs could be found that 
promoted the awareness of current is- 
sues in these academic fields. 

Three honoraries recognized in- 
terdisciplinary excellence, also. Mor- 
tar Board and Omicron Delta Kappa 
accepted applications from a wide va- 
riety of academic fields, and a selection 
committee chose new members from 
the applications. Phi Kappa Phi, also a 
national organization, was composed 
of the top 5% of the senior class. Stu- 
dents were inducted at the beginning of 
the school year. 

Each of these academic 
honoraries and clubs promoted aca- 
demic excellence and awareness of 
trends in its respective fields.

Many opportunities for... 

Wesleyan students had several 
chances to find culture and art through- 
out the year. Whether they preferred 
music or the theater, students had many 
events from which to choose, each offer- 
ing something different. 

The theater department and its 
honorary, Alpha Psi Omega, offered sev- 
eral dramatic events to entertain audi- 
ences. From faculty-directed main-stage 
productions, to student-directed one act 
plays in the new Jenkins Arena, theater- 
goers could take in comedies, tragedies, 
and everything in between. 

For those who enjoyed musical 
performances, Wesleyan's Concert Cho- 
rale, Concert Band, and Jazz Band gave 
several concerts throughout the season. 
Both the Chorale and Jazz Band were 
touring ensembles, while Concert Band 
entertained audience members in 
Wesley Chapel. In addition to their typi- 
cal touring season, the Jazz Band toured 
in Eastern Europe following graduation. 

For all members of the Wesleyan 
Community, cultural events were never 
hard to find. One only had to listen to 
hear a concert or play being performed.

As another year drew to a close, it 
became apparent to students that 
Wesleyan had afforded them many 
experiences and opportunities 
that would help them become 
more productive members of so- 
ciety. Awareness events, such as 
the AIDS quilt and the Young 
Democrats petition against edu- 
cation cuts, gave campus commu- 
nity members a chance to view 
first-hand what was happening in 
the world around them. Seniors 
finished the year knowing that they 
had grown as individuals and as a 

Undergraduates and seniors alike dread

As with past years, Wesleyan's 
personality, character, and fea- 
tures changed along with the 
graduation of one class and the 
induction of another. Although 
they were inevitable, these 
changes could not sway the tradi- 
tions and standards that had been 
set for the college many years ago. 
Traditions of excellence in aca- 
demics, sports, and involvement 
linked the Wesleyan of today with 
the past generations who gave it 
such a strong history. It was this 
tradition and history that made 
being a member of the Wesleyan 
community a truly Classic Experi- 

As they reflected on their time at Wes- 
leyan, seniors waited for graduation with 
both excitement and anxiety.

In Memoriam 

1 met an angel once 

He crawled right up into my crib and lay beside me. 

Through the years we became the best of friends. 

Our hearts were meant to share a Icve. 

He did so much for me. 

He walked me to my room the first day of kindergarden. 

He walked with me in the Lord. 

He taught me how to write in cursive. 

He taught me how to love. 

He showed me how to shoot a baskeball. 

He showed me how to be strong through the tough times. 

My special angel's work on earth was through, 

And he is now in Heaven, 

Preparing a home for me and his loved ones. 

I'll never forget my special angel. 

He was kind-hearted, strong, intelligent, handsome, funny, talented, loving.. 

He was my BIG BROTHER!
