The growth in technology certainly 
had its affects on the students at 
WVWC. Specifically, the computer age 
was here, even in Buckhannon, WV. 

All freshmen received a laptop com- 
puter to use during their college career. 
Freshman Joshua Ray favored this be- 
cause, "It gives me a way to commu- 
nicate with my friends back home." In 
fact, a great deal of the freshman popu- 
lation used their computers to e-mail 
family and friends. Others found them 
to be handy when completing class as- 
signments. This change in technology 
was exciting for not only freshmen, but 
also the upperclassmen. Sophomores, 
juniors, and seniors did not have their 
own laptops; however, they were given 
a much more modern computer lab to 
use in Christopher Science Hall. A net- 
work system was implemented into the 
lives of all WVWC students, especially 
since listserv activities were the latest 
trend for Wesley an faculty. No longer 
did students have to fight with the 
slowness of the vox system. Some mi- 
nor glitches came up, but each day 
Wesleyan became a little more tech- 
nologically advanced, as the campus 
community patiently worked together 
to grow along with the rest of the world.

Wesleyan' s Campus observed nu- 
merous changes in the past Jew years. 
Construction was a slow and on-going 
process for as long as most Bobcats 
could remember. This year, the Wes- 
leyan community saw things come full 
circle on campus. 

Construction began on the campus 
center building almost two years ago 
and the center finally reopen early this 
year. The newly renovated Benedum 
Campus Center held its grand opening 
in September. This new building now 
holds many of the administrative of- 
fices which were temporarily housed in 
the old Camden Avenue building. Also 
found in the new building is the Cat's 
Claw and SunnyBuck's, which were 
completely new editions to the campus. 
When the new building opened, signs 
were hung proclaiming the new motto 
of "An Old Friend has a New Look." 

As the new building went up an old 
one came down. The white building on 
Camden Avenue which served as c 
temporary home for our administrative 
offices was condemned. The building 
was knocked down earlier this year as 
alumni looked on. In the future, the site 
will be turned into additional parking, 

These major buildings served as c 
visual aid to the ever changing atmos 
phere at Wesleyan. Wesleyan con 
tinued to change from day to day.

There is much more than just 
academics here at Wesleyan. 
Throughout the year numerous 
activities were held to welcome, honoi 
and entertain all of the Wesleyan 
community. They were the mostly 
traditional events which were held 
annually. Students returning to 
Wesleyan lookedforward to the 
traditional Homecoming and 
Christmas events. New students 
learned early just how much fun 
Wesleyan could be. Campus Activities 
Board provided numerous events 
throughout the year. 

In addition to all the many activities 
on campus, the surrounding 
communities had tons to offer our 
students. Many Wesleyan groups hit 
the town for service projects or the 
parks for a weekend of camping. J- 
term provided the opportunity to 
expand students' learning and 
explore other cultures while still 

Every season brought its own events 
which occupied the time of many of 
Wesleyan students. The biggest lesson 
a Wesleyan graduate learned was to 
manage fun and work. Wesleyan 
provided events for students to make 
the most out of their time in college.

With boxes under their arms and a look of 
uneasiness in their eyes, the newest students at 
Wesleyan, the class of 2001, moved into their new 
home away from home. Like most students who 
were beginning their first of many years away from 
home, the new freshman class at Wesleyan had 
unlimited excitement and fear churning within each 
and every one of them. The next few days were 
sure to be a major period of adjustment. The 
biggest concern was meeting new roommates. For 
some there was an instant bond, others took time 
for the bonds to develop and still others didn't 
work at all. Whatever the case, Orientation 
Weekend provided ample opportunity for the new 
students to meet hundreds of other new students 
and upperclassmen. The weekend supported the 
start of friendships that would last forever. 

Orientation Weekend began with the freshmen 
moving into the residence halls with the assistance 
of orientation leaders. Hallways quickly filled with 
empty and full boxes, and of course a confusion of 
"where to squeeze everything in," was the sight 
across campus. Parents helped carry in the boxes 
and probably struggled through the weekend with 
more apprehensions than the students. Later, new I 
students and their families attended a Convocation 
in a very crowded Wesley Chapel. Here it all began 
as Director of Admissions Bob Skinner presented 
the Class of 2001 to President Haden, and the 
students were welcomed to Wesleyan. 

The weekend continued with a general assembly 
and a campus-wide picnic. At the assembly, the 
students met their Freshmen Seminar Groups who 
became their adopted families. The ending of the 
assembly was awkward for some as the last good- 
bye hugs and kisses were made with their family. 

The highlight of Orientation for many was the 
annual Wesleyan Olympics, in which the Freshman 
Seminar Groups battled for top honors in a variety 
of events. Dr. Popson's seminar group proudly 
claimed victory overall. 

Orientation continued with a fun night, meetings 
with advisors, and the annual Great College Drive- 
in Movie.

Homecoming 1997 was time for renewing old 
raditions and starting some new ones. One of the 
irst things alumni found when returning to 
ampus was an organizational fair. This fair was 
lesigned to allow alumni to meet current 
nembers of organizations they had once 
)elongecl to. Several campus groups were 
nvolved, and most alumni seemed to enjoy 
alking with the current students. 

Perhaps the biggest changes of Homecoming 
vere found on Saturday morning when students 
■woke to find no floats lining the Chapel Oval, 
fince the parade had been rained out several 
mes in years past, it was decided not to have a 
larade this year. In place of the parade, students 
pent the morning decorating the football field for 
ne big game. Balloons and banners were hung, 
ie stage was set, and the speakers were tested, 
he pep squad organized a pre-game pep rally to 
et the fans in the spirit. It seemed to be well 
ttended and helped to fill the void left by the 
lissing parade. 

The banner contest took a new turn, along with 
ie Queen's coronation. Keeping with the 
Homecoming in the Hills" theme, fraternities, 
arorities, and several independent groups hung 
anners in support of their Bobcat team. The 
anners were judged and CAB came away with 
ie first place award. The field, as well as the 
oectacular fall colors, set a stunning stage for the 
oronation of the Homecoming King and Queen, 
ast Queen Amanda Meyers-Nichols returned just 
>ng enough to present the crown to the new 
)ueen. President Haden and Ms. Flanagan 
rowned Andrew Sulgit and Buffy Stoll as the 
oncert Chorale sang "My Home Among the 
Nils" in the background. It was a touching 
loment for Bobcats young and old. 

The weekend's events also included a campus- 

ide picnic, musical performances, and other 
jovelties which were provided by CAB. Taking a 
Jioment out to look around, it was hard to see a 
ull face in the crowd all weekend.

As usual, Christmas tradition filled the Wesleyan 
campus at the start of December this year. Wesleyan 
students were kept busy with all the many activities 
which filled each day. In two short weeks, students 
found themselves transforming Wesleyan into a win- 
ter wonderland filled with all the joys of the holiday 

The first event was the traditional Hanging of the 
Greens sponsored by the chapel office. On Wed- 
nesday, December 3, many fraternity brothers from 
each of the fraternities joined hands in cutting the 
trees that would decorate the chapel. On Thursday 
evening various campus organizations met in Kresge 
ready to work. The pre-cut greens were carried 
upstairs to the chapel and strung along the railings of 
the balcony and along the organ wall. It was a great 
opportunity to unite the whole community. 

Despite the snow and ice, approximately one hun- 
dred and fifty second and third graders form the 
Buckhannon area arrived to participate in Christmas 
on Campus. 

As the sororities, fraternities, and independent or- 
ganizations met in designated spots to set up their 
activities, the students were met in the Green Room 
by their Wesleyan tour guides. Stops throughout the 
day included the opportunity for the children to 
decorate paper bags, make paper chains, create 
their own Christmas ornaments, write cards to mom 
and dad, and send their wish list to Santa. When 
fatigue set in, there was always the option of reading 
Christmas stories or watching traditional Christmas 
movies. The big thrill for most of the kids was visiting 
Santa and Mrs. Claus, Chris Tweel and Kristi Law- 
rence respectively. Activities culminated with the 
singing of Christmas carols and a magic show. Smil- 
ing faces could be found on both the volunteers and 
the children that day. 

Sunday followed with the Festival of Lessons and 
Carols. Concert Chorale and Wesleyan Singers sang 
holiday carols in between Bible readings. At point, 
the audience was invited to join in the singing. The 
evening and holiday festivities culminated with the 
lighting of the campus Christmas tree.

Campus Activities Board, better known as CAB, 
was responsible for keeping the students at Wes- 
leyan entertained throughout the year. This was a 
job which had been done successfully in the past 
and this year was no different. 

Advisor Alisa Lively teamed up with President 
Tamika Anderson to bring the entire campus com- 
munity another fun-filled year of movies, games, 
and much more. Campus Activities Board staff got 
out to an early start with the annual College Drive- 
in which was part of orientation weekend. The fun 
just kept on rolling from that weekend on. They 
brought us big name movies in Hyma such as Jerry 
Maguire, FaceOff, and CI lane. The opening of the 
Cat's Claw this fall kept the staff on its toes. Staff 
members were constantly trying to come up with 
new activities which would keep people coming 
J to the Cat's Claw. The biggest hit was the bi- 
weekly Open Mic. Open Mic became a big hit on 
campus. Campus Activities Board brought several 
bands on campus to perform for the entire com- 
munity. Parents Weekend brought with it the Tal- 
ent Show in which prizes were awarded. 

One of the biggest undertakings Campus Activi- 
ties Board had all year was planning the opening 
af Benedum Campus Center. CAB literally threw a 
Darty for the entire campus to celebrate the Grand 
Opening of our new campus center. The group 
I was especially excited for the day because CAB's 
new office was housed in the new Campus Cent- 
er. For the occasion, a band was brought in to 
aerform outside the cafeteria and prizes were 
Uiven away all day. A special guest was invited to 
entertain the community; the guest was a friendly 
ittle robot. 

Campus Activities Board worked hard all year to 
alan activities to keep students busy on the week- 
ends. It was a hard task, but the members of CAB 
were to be commended for their efforts.

Oh, the places people have gone. Just coming to 
Wesleyan was a new and far reaching experience 
for many students. Once at Wesleyan, these 
students realized just how much there was to do 
off campus. When classes got stressful or when 
there seemed to be a break in all the work, 
students turned to the community for relief. 

Wesleyan is located in the heart of the foothills, 
surrounded by tons of state parks and forest areas. 
Most of these parks have areas for hiking, camping, 
and swimming. Audra State Park and Blackwater 
Falls provided beautiful scenery and peace for 
students looking for a weekend or even an 
afternoon get away. 

When the weather wasn't cooperating for 
outdoors activities, there was always shopping to 
be found. Meadowbrook Mall and Morgantown 
Mall surely did more business when college was in 
session. Both malls were within driving distance 
from Wesleyan. Students also found time to visit 
some of the more local stores. 

The sports teams got away from campus more 
often than the regular students. The teams traveled 
both in and out of state to compete in various 
meets and tournaments. Sometimes getting there 
proved difficult. All the teams had to cram into 
Wesleyan's small vans and hope to get to the game 
on time. The swim team found out that the vans 
were not always reliable. They broke down in the 
middle of nowhere and had to wait for another van 
to get them to their meet on time. When Wesleyan 
got too rainy, many of the sports teams sought 
sunnier weather in Florida. 

Sports were not the only reason to take a trip 
somewhere. Many classes sponsored field trips 
throughout the year. The most popular reason for 
travel was J-term. At least three different classes 
went overseas for three weeks during January 
semester. The Honors Program spent time in 
England, the Biology Department headed for 
Belize, and another group headed for Bulgaria. 
Many other classes traveled within the United 
States during J-term. 

Near or far, Wesleyan provided students with the 
opportunity to go "Out and About" during their 
semesters of study.

In keeping with the spring tradition, Wesleyan's 
hapel filled to capacity for the annual Spring Sing 
ompetition. Though the event was held on April 
5, members of the Special Activities Committee 
ated on the theme for the 1 998 Spring Sping and 
nnounced "The Many Colors of Wesleyan" to 
le campus during Homecoming Weekend back 
i October. The 1 1 groups that participated in 
pring Sing this year began thinking of songs back 
i October and began intense practices in April, 
t'ery piece performed had to have a color in the 
Dng. The songs ranged from Chi Phi's rendition 
f the ever popular, "Brown Eyed Girl" to lesser 
nown songs such as, "Green, Green." 

Prior to the competition, President Haden and 
etsy Flanigan crowned the Spring Sing King and 
>ueen. Adrienne White, 1997 Spring Sing Queen, 

turned for the weekend to help crown the new 

ng and queen. This year's honorees were Matt 
arnes and Jessica Wright. After the winners were 
nnounced, Concert Chorale seranaded the new 
)yalty with "My Home Among the Hills" and the 
sters of Alpha Gamma Delta sang one of their 
Dngs of sisterhood to Jess. King Matt and Queen 
.ssica were seated in chairs on the side of the 
.age and presided over the evening's events.

Though the year was drawing to a close, the 
endless activities and events that students had to 
attend kept on going. One of the more prestigous 
events at Wesleyan was the Awards Convocation. 
This year, Wesley Chapel filled with students and 
parents on April 26, 1998 to honor those students 
who excelled this year. Being a college student was 
rough and required much time and energy. Many 
students were able to balance academics, athletics, 
and a social life. Other students chose to focus on 
only one of those areas. Whatever the case was, 
students were honored for their excellence in 
academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. 

The convocation began with the awards for 
Greek organizations. In the absence of a Greek 
advisor, the presidents of IFC and Panhallenic took 
over the responsibilty of presenting these awards. 
The second series of awards were given by the 
individual academic departments on campus. The 
final set of awards were presented by the campus 
administrators. Most of these awards were given to 
distinguished seniors. 

Arminta Baldwin was honored with the 
Outstanding Faculty Member Award, as she 
received a standing ovation. Professor Baldwin has 
had a large impact on the function of this college 
and was highly honored to receive credit for her 

The students receiving honors worked hard all 
year without expecting anything in return. It was 
important to honor those who had put forth 
outstanding efforts in their chosen field. It was hard 
enough to handle class loads for one year and that 
made it admirable to excel for four years. Receiving 
the Outstanding Senior Award or the Who's Who 
Among American Colleges and Universities Award 
showed extreme dedication on the part of the 

All students deserved recognition for their effort 
and hard work. The Awards Convocation was an 
opportunity to recognize the best of the best.

Wesleyan had another successful year of dra- 
ma. This year's productions covered many time 
periods from history, and all were a joy to behold. 

The season began with a murder mystery dinner 
theater. "The Night of January 16th" was directed 
by senior English education major Karen Brown. 
During a seven-course dinner served in the Back- 
seat, twelve jurors were selected from the audi- 
ence. The audience members adjourned to the 
courtroom to hear the case. The jury then had the 
opportunity to hear the evidence and come to a 

George Jack, Wesleyan's new director of thea- 
ter, directed his first show of the campus and 
community. "Our Town" was the fall mainstage 
production. This classic play was done in period 
style. It was, as always, an audience favorite. 

Instead of having an early spring musical, Geor- 
ge Jack directed another classic play- -"She Stoops 
to Conquer." This production was cast in the fall 
to allow ample time for the theater to be transfor- 
med into the eighteenth century. The ensemble 
even perfected British accents for this play. 

Alpha Psi Omega members directed some One 
Acts in the spring. These were performed with 
"Where Have all the Lightning Bugs Gone," a 
two-person childrens' play featuring seniors Beth 
Ranson and Dennis Craig. 

Ed Stewart put on his senior production, "The 
Insanity of Mary Girard" in the spring. His play 
was performed in the Jenkins Arena. This small 
ensemble did an excellent job. The cast of this 
play worked very closely with each other to help 
create a strong performance. 

Last, but not least, for this school year was 
Alpha Psi Omega president Erica Matchett's pro- 
duction of "SubUrbia." This play, which took pla- 
ce entirely at a convenience store, was a huge hit 
on Wesleyan's campus. It was performed to a 
nearly full theater all nights. The actors received a 
standing ovation every night. 

As this drama year came to a close, the depart- 
ment began its planning for next year.

On Up 

Graduation Weekend brought a note of 
finality for Wesleyan's academic year and 
class of 1998. Baccalaureate and graduation 
ceremonies were filled with tradition and 

Held on Saturday evening May 16, 
Baccalaureate offered a formal religious 
service of inspiration for the graduates-to- 
be. Emory University's Provost and 
Executive Vice President of Academic 
Affairs Dr. Rebecca S. Chopp delivered a 
sermon entitled "One Word, Two Stories 
and a Blessing." At the conclusion of the 
service, members of the graduating class of 
1998 received the following words from 
President Haden: " are hereby 
commissioned to go out in to the world to 
make a difference, to change it for the 
better, to enrich it with your own brand of 
creative goodness, to redeem it when it 
falters." Upon acceptance of this 
commission, the soon-to-be graduates were 
sent forth to anticipate the next day's 
graduation ceremony. 

The 108th Commencement was held 
Sunday, May 1 7 in Rockefeller Center for 
more than three hundred graduates, along 
with their family members and friends. The 
Governor of West Virginia, Cecil H. 
Underwood, was welcomed to the 
Wesleyan campus as the commencement 
speaker. Wesleyan's class of 1998 
concluded its four-year journey as it joined 
"The Orange Line" - the 16,000 men and 
women who have preceded them every 
May since 1890.

The students of Wesleyan came from 
all walks of life with many different 
interests. A variety of choices were 
available for people with such 
diversified backgrounds. If there was 
an interest, Wesleyan had an 
organization for it. Wesleyan provided 
over one hundred independent 
organizations from which students 
chose to participate in. 

The choices varied from academics 
to community service and everything 
in between. Each department seemed 
to have its own organization and 
honorary. There were numerous 
Christian organizations as well as 
Performing Arts groups. Though these 
four categories made up the majority 
of the groups, they were by no means 
the only groups. Students could also 
choose from numerous special interest 

All these activities were in addition 
to the students' daily life of classes 
and studying. The main reason 
students came here was for an 
education, but a well-rounded 
education included the extra 
curricular involvement. When 
students felt they had a little time on

Wesleyan offered the students several opportuni- 
ties to let their voices be heard this year. It was up to 
the students to become involved. 

The best option for the students to be heard was 
the Pharos, the student newspaper. Membership in- 
creased after the change in leadership and the stu- 
dents let their voices be heard. C-92, the campus 
radio station broadcasted their student produced 
shows on 92.1 FM. Students also volunteered their 
time to organize and write stories for the yearbook. 

The options of having student voices heard was 
present this year as always.

Across tike Ocean 

Nestled in the hills of West Virginia is the quaint campus of 
West Virginia Wesleyan College, which became home to new 
students from across the states and across the ocean each 
year. In order to make these students comfortable so far from 
home, they were invited into a second family. This family was 
a group called the International Student Organization (ISO). 
Most students in the organization said that ISO genuinely 
cared about the other students and that made it easier to 

Throughout the year, ISO sponsored shopping trips to the 
mall and winter ski trips. The biggest event for the group was 
the ISO banquet held in March. It was a fun way to bring the 
campus community together. 

ISO helped make a different world a little less scary.

Getting exceptional grades at Wesleyan was not an 
easy task. However, many students did excel in ac- 
ademics. Wesleyan had numerous academic honora- 
ries to recognize those students who exceled in their 

Excellence in academics was usually not the only 
requirements for an honorary. Honoraries also look- 
ed for people who were leaders, active in community 
and campus events, and represented a well-rounded 
college student. 

Being inducted into an honorary was an accom- 
plishment that deserved praise.

"Everybody can he great because any bod) can serve.*' 
—Martin Luther king Jr. 

Wesleyan's main opportunities for mi viie were abundant this year a> 
always. Two of the biggest events on campus were Make .1 Difference Daj 
and Youth Serve America Week. Students from the entire campus 
community joined together in a varietj <>f activities planned lor these days, 
Mam off campus events such as, French Creek Mentoring, Read Aloud and. 
Homework Helpers were directed through the Community Sen ii e ' lllke 
under the direction of Jeannie O'Halloran. 

One of the more unique community service options on our campus was the 
Alternate Spring Break. The project was coordinated by Juan Phillips and 
Jeff Squires to provide a chance for students to help tfiose in need. A group 
of students went to Charleston and another to Virginia and worked with the 
members of the communities. 

Students from all aspects of our community found a wa\ to serve and be a

The faculty and staff of West 
Virginia Wesleyan College were put 
through some tough challenges this 
year. The introduction of laptops into 
the classroom challenged the 
professors to modify their curricula 
and make several adaptations to their 
classes. It was a long year with all the 
changes, but Wesleyan' s faculty 
eagerly accepted the changes. 

Many departments throughout 
campus were left short-staffed for the 
year. It was a last minute scramble to 
cover the classes, but the students 
were never left hanging. These 
vacancies were filled during the 
spring semester. 

The physical plant had its hands 
full this semester. They were busy 
with the finishing touches of the 
ongoing campus construction which 
saw an end late in the spring 
semester. Other members of the 
support staff were terribly patient 
with the griping students through all 
the changes this year. 

The fine leadership that Wesleyan 's 
academic community established this 
year could never be replicated by any 
other institution. "Paws and Look" at 
Wesleyan' s long standing tradition of 
excellence, which was accomplished 
by the hard working faculty and staff.

Each student who attends West 
Virginia Wesleyan College has a 
different plan for his or her future. No 
one quite knows exactly what life will 
offer after their Jour years of studying 
at Wesleyan. Once the seniors take 
their final walk across the stage, they 
must "paws and look," back at the 
experiences they have had here at 
Wesleyan and use it in their future. 

Freshmen take a new step in their 
lives as they enter Wesleyan and 
leave a vital part of their past behind. 
There is no need to worry because 
Wesley an s friendly, family -like 
atmosphere attempts to fill the void. 
At the end of a student's four years at 
Wesleyan, he or she have come to 
know Wesleyan as a "home away 
from home." 

Comprising the student body at 
Wesleyan are 1300 undergraduates 
from 33 states and 28 foreign 
countries. Everyone on campus 
benefits from the very diverse 
community that has been established. 
Everyone leaves his or her own 
"pawprint" on campus which will 
continue to make Wesleyan a better 
place in the future.

Seniors Bree Hoffer and Kira MacFadden browse through resource books 
and bulletin board supplies in the Elementary Block Room to find what they 
need for teaching a lesson. Education majors are required to take the Praxis 
tests and the NTE before graduation so they will be eligible for certification. 

What could have been more fun than getting up at six 
o'clock on a Saturday morning in order to be at the 
testing center by seven o'clock just to sit in a strange 
classroom for four hours and take a grueling test that 
would determine a student's future? 

Many college seniors spent anywhere from one to nu- 
merous Saturday mornings at testing centers in order to 
master these important tests, most of which would have a 
profound impact on the student's career options. 

There were extensive Praxis tests and CORE batten 
tests for the education majors, plenty of Medical College 
Admissions Tests (MCAT) for the pre-med students, tons 
of Graduate Readiness Exams (GRE) for the future grad 
school students and the infamous Law School Admissions 
Tests (LSAT) for the future lawyers. This is just to name 
a few considering there were many more tests that had to 
be taken bv one major or another. 

Almost every major required a certification or entrance 
test of one kind or another. No matter what the field of 
study, there was usually a test that had to be taken in 
order to complete or further one's Wesleyan education 
and getting up bright and early on a Saturday morning 
was usually part of fulfilling that requirement. But no 
matter how many Saturda) mornings were lost, ii was 
worth it in the long run when the test results came back in 
flying colors.

Taking a break/torn the everyday hustle of college life, senior biology major 

Bill Barnes has the option of pursuing his biology degree at the masters level 

or expanding on his major by adding another major of study giving him all 

kinds of job opportunities. 

Is there life after Wesleyan?' There are all kinds. Some 
people chose to find a job directly after graduation while 
others decided to further their education. Those gra- 
duates who went on to pursue an even higher degree most 
commonly headed for graduate school. ..and the choices 
seemed endless. 

There were all kinds of avenues to pursue after an 
undergraduate degree was obtained. Job opportunities 
depended on certification, masters degrees, doctoral de- 
grees and more. Many students chose to attend a larger 
institution than Wesleyan, such as West Virginia Uni- 
versity or Kentucky University. While at these univer- 
sities, students had the option to seek a totally different 
route than they pursued at Wesleyan, such as guidance 
counseling to follow a psychology major, or they could 
further their undergraduate major directly, such as a 
masters in business. 

Then there was the option to work on a masters degree 
through evening classes at a state university. This process 
took longer to obtain the degree, but it allowed the 
student to hold a full-time job while still taking classes. 
This seemed to be a popular route to take and many 
places of employment offered to pay for a higher ed- 
ucation while evening classes were being taken. 

No matter what Wesleyan's graduates chose to pursue 
and no matter how far they chose to extend their educa- 
tion, they always knew it would lead to a reliable job in a 
field they enjoyed.

One of the many groups to travel during J-term was Wesleyan's Chorale. 
During their busy schedule of concerts, seniors Lea Anderson and Rebehah 
Gulnac pose for a picture with Dr. Larry Parsons, their chorale director. 

One of the most enjoyable ways to earn three credit 
hours seemed to be taking a J-term class. January term 
offered Wesleyan students the opportunity to take a 
three-hour course in a three-week period. Some of the 
students chose to take a course that they wanted to 
concentrate all their efforts into while others chose the 
course because they wanted to get it over with in just 
three weeks. Still, there were other students who chose to 
leave the Wesleyan campus to earn their three credit 

Those students who chose to spend the three weeks 
awa) from their Wesleyan family got the opportunity to 
explore many different places. One group of students 
went to Pittsburgh to work with inner city children 
through a tutoring program while another group of stu- 
dents went to England to learn about their culture. 

Then there were the students who took a required class 
duringj-term because it was only offered during this time 
period. One such group was the education departments 
paraprofessionals. They spent the last week of t heir obsei - 
vations in Charleston and Pittsburgh working with cultur- 
ally diverse schools. While there, Wesleyan's students got 
a taste of bigger city schools and the large diversity that 
exists outside of Buckhannon. 

Whether the students stayed on campus or left for I lie- 
three weeks, J-term usually ended up as a positive and 
enjoyable experience.

As junior T.J. Williams escorts senior psychology major Jessica Brado across 

the field during the Homecoming festivities, Jess can relax knowing that this 

extra-curricular move will look good on her resume when she goes to apply 

for a job after graduation. 

There is always an uncertainty that conies with the 
thought of graduation. For most students this unrest 
comes from knowing what lies ahead of them... getting a 
job. After spending four years concentrating on one 
specific area of studv in a major that was painstakingly and 
carefully chosen came the time to put those four years of 
knowledge to use. It now became time to go into the 'real 
world' and find a job to substantiate the financial woes of 
being on one's own and of paying back those college 

Some students may have had to pursue a graduate 
degree before entering the work force, but others chose 
to browse the classifieds, perfect the resumes and hit the 
pavement right out of Weslevan. These dedicated souls 
may have had a long haul ahead of them in order to find 
that perfect job that everyone desires, but Weslevan tried 
to give them an extra edge through their strict prepara- 

By graduation, some of Weslevan's graduates earned a 
Bachelor of Arts degree while others earned a Bachelor 
of Science degree. However, no matter which degree 
students left Weslevan with, there was no denying that the 
jobs in the market were few and far between. Fortunately, 
Weslevan prepares their graduates extensive!) for the 
grueling task of scouring for potential jobs. This gave 
Weslevan graduates an edge over the opposition and 
hopefiilU a step ahead in getting .t g I job. 





Showing their leadership skills, seniors Dennis Craig and Matt Rhodes are 

prominant leaders on Wesleyan's campus. Dennis is the student director of 

Wesleyan's Chapel Choir and Matt is extremely involved m Christian Life 

Council, while both are active members of Sigma The/a Epsilon. 

The majority of the decisions that were made about 
Wesleyan's campus were greatly influenced by the stu- 
dent body. There were many voices around campus that 
were heard and many voices that helped to make a 
difference in the Wesleyan community. 

All of the groups on campus were student-lead and 
student-run. All groups have an advisor, but most of the 
time the advisor was only there for advice and guidance. 
Groups such as Community Council and the Campus 
Activities Board were run mainly by a group of students 
who put in many hours behind the scenes to make life run 
smoothly at Wesleyan. 

Some groups such as Alpha Phi Omega, the service 
fraternity, and Theta Chi, were organized or even 
brought back by students. Fraternities and sororities were 
run strictly by students who held offices in those or- 
ganizations and many groups, such as the Black Student 
Union, Christian Life Council and C-92, functioned in- 
dependently. There were also the Pharos and the 
Murmurmontis, student publications which were produced 
by Wesleyan students. 

Whether or not a group or organization has an active 
advisor or no advisor, they were still considered student- 
run, thus making the Wesleyan community extremely

Making friends and memories that will last a lifetime is one of 

the best qualities of the Wesleyan community. Seniors Alexis 

Dodd and Brett Taylor know what it means to have made the 

kind of friendship during their four years at Wesleyan that will 

last the rest of their lives no matter where they go in life. 

There were so many things about Wesleyan 
that were memorable and after four years of 
studies, actiyities and friends, students found 
that there were numerous memories to take 
with them after graduation. 

Every- graduate would recall at least a few 
good experiences they had here at Wesleyan. 
There were early morning fire alarms in the 
middle of January, late night runs to Sheetz. 
hundreds of Dominos pizzas delivered to the 
dorm, roommate squabbles, all-nighters the 
night before a term paper was due, cold show- 
ers at nine o'clock in the morning, constant 
construction all over campus, cable interup- 
tions, filled-to-capacity computer labs and left- 
overs from Friday's dinner on Saturday. 

All of these experiences, whether good 01 
bad. added to the spice of life at Wesleyan. 
Main friends were made during the four years 
of college and many of the friendships would 
be carried on for life. Students remembered 
the good times when thev thought back i" 
their years at Wesleyan.

Parents Weekend was always considered two days of fun that 
college students got to spend with their parents on Wesleyan's 

Parents were always excited to see their children while students 
were usually bubbling with excitement that Mom and Dad were 
getting a chance to see where they lived and meet some of their 
new friends. 

Parents Weekend always began with registration under the Big 
Top and then proceeded to a variety of activities organized by the 
college, such as antique photo opportunities and sports events, 
such as football, soccer and volleyball. 

At the end of the busiest day of Parents Weekend, the annual 
Wesleyan Talent Show was held in Wesley Chapel. The talent 
show highlighted Wesleyan's mam talented students for all of the 
parents and student body to enjoy. Then, if everybody had any 
energy left afterward, there was a movie shown in Hyma Auditori- 

Sunday morning alw.ns offered the opportunity to attend a 
chapel service, which was followed by a delicious luncheon in the 
French A. See Dining Center. After lunch, it was time to say 
goodbye to Mom and Dad once more, allowing Wesleyan's stu- 
dents to return to their routine college days.

Choices, Choices 
and More Choices 

As high school students, people prepared themselves for the 
journey to the unknown. However, after a year at col- 
lege, the adjustment was made. Therefore, students began to find 
themselves in another quandry...what major to choose. 

Some students knew from the start what they wanted to be 
when they grew up, but others began their sophomore year 
having no clear direction. This posed a problem for those who felt 
this state of confusion. A student's sophomore year was usually a 
determining factor toward choice of study. Many students began 
to get past the majority of core classes and were looking into 
subjects that interested them. 

Although some students had not determined their major by the 
end of their sophomore year, most students had a good idea ol 
where they were going.

As the freshmen crowded into their dorms, the) had many ideas 
as to what to expect from college. Many, however, had not given 
much thought as to the number of students who would comprise 
their freshman class. With the freshman class entered over five 
hundred students from all over the world. Wesleyan had not seen 
a class of this size in over twenty years. 

Students seemed to have mixed feelings about these statistics. 
Alex Grenner stated, 'Sometimes the smaller the class, the more 
educational output the students receive from the college and the 
college receives from its students." Yet some students, such as 
Josh Ray, came to Wesleyan for its "high academic opportuni- 
ties," not caring about the population numbers. 

( Ibviously, something about Wesleyan attracted this large num- 
bei of students. So, no matter what the enrollment, as long as the 
academics were good, people would continue to choose Wesleyan 
as their higher institution for learning.

Greek/' did so because of the three 
words just mentioned. When students 
were far away from home, Greek life 
created a new family filled with many 
sisters and brothers. The bonds of 
friendship would last long after college 
was over. The support system helped 
the students cope with the stress of 
college and life. 

Wesleyan 's five fraternities and four 
sororities gave students the 
opportunity to create the friendship, 
family, and support that they desired. 
The presence of more than one Greek 
organization allowed students the 
choice of where they wanted to go. 
Students who opted for Greek life 
chose the fraternity or sorority that 
they felt most comfortable with. 

The fraternities and sororities 
added much to the campus life. Each 
organization had its own philanthropy 
which it helped each year. The groups 
were continuously active in service 
projects on campus and in the 
Buckhannon community.

Alpha Delta Pi 

50 years of 

The azure blue and white jerseys 
were a well-known symbol on 
Wesleyan's campus. They were the 
insignia of Alpha Delta Pi. This 
year, girls going through rush 
learned the flower for Alpha Delta 
Pi was the violet and its symbol was 
the lion. The sisters of ADPi 
demonstrated the motto of, "We 
live for each other," to all who saw 
them. At this year's rush parties, 
the girls had a chance to explain 
their philanthropy to prospective 
sisters. The girls learned of the year 
round events and fundraisers which 
were held to support the Ronald 
MacDonald House. 

This spring the sisters welcomed 
1 5 new members to their family. 
Those girls became Alpha Delta 
Pi's Spring 1998 Alpha class. 

This year was a very special 
one for Wesleyan's Alpha Delta 
Pi. The Gamma Kappa Chapter 
celebrated its 50th year of being 
the "First and Finest." Alumni 
from all over the United States 
came back, to Wesleyan to help 
celebrate Alpha Delta Pi's 
Golden Anniversary. The 
festivities included a formal 
dinner where the new sisters had 
the opportunity to meet sisters 
from years ago. 

The sisters added a second 
place ranking in Greek Week and 
third place finish in Spring Sing 
to their successes this year. They 
were very excited and proud of 
their sisterhood. They hope to 
carry out the tradition for years 
to come.

Alpha Gamma Delta 

Five Star Chapter 

The 1997 fall semester began 
with the Alpha Omicron Chapter 
looking forward to an exciting 
year. The sisters held their annual 
retreat at Holly River on Satur- 
day, October 1 1. Activities includ- 
ed making T-shirts for Homecom- 
ing weekend, playing games and 
singing fraternity hymns. 

Homecoming activities were a 
little different this year due to the 
fact that the parade was cancelled. 
The sisters quickly adapted and 
decided to attend the football 
game together wearing the T- 
shirts that had been made at fall 
retreat. They also made a great 
banner, but unfortunately did not 
place in the banner competition. 
The annual alumnae banquet was 
also held that weekend. 

Alpha Gam was honored with 
the highest campus scholarship 
award at the annual scholarship 
ceremony. They also had the most 

sisters of all sororities on Dean's List. 

Philanthropy projects for this year 
included: a walk-a-thon with Theta 
Chi. Hanging of the Greens, Christ- 
mas on Campus, selling tuck-ins. 
Children's festival, and holding a 
canned food drive. All the money 
raised went to the Alpha Gamma 
Delta Foundation. The sisters learn- 
ed that they were once again a mem- 
ber of the Jewel Society. Philanthro- 
py Night was added to the Rush 
parties this year. The Gams made 
warm fuzzies which were later at- 
tached to the tuck-ins which they 

After four nights of Rush parties 
the Alpha Omicron Chapter was 
proud to welcome 1 3 new members, 
Missie's Mystical Muses. Other high- 
lights of the spring semester in- 
cluded a successful showing in Greek 
Week and a colorful performance at 
Spring Sing.

Alpha Xi Delta 

Greek tOeek 
Champs Ac^airt 

Once again, the Beta Sigma 
Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta had a 
very exciting and successful year. 
The sisters kept busy with their 
philanthropy, "Choose Children" 
and worked with the community as 
well. They held their annual "Xi- 
saw-a-thon" Homecoming weekend 
to raise money for the medical 
expenses of a little girl in the 
community. The sisters of Alpha Xi 
Delta also volunteered their time at 
the Special Olympics as well as the 
Battered Women's Shelter. 
However, they didn't stop there. 
They teamed up with the brothers 
of Theta Chi fraternity and spent 
one afternoon at the Holbrook 
Nursing Home visiting all of the 
residents. Throughout the entire 
year, the sisters were actively 

involved in Homework Helps at 
Central Elementary. 

These extremely busy sisters 
completed philanthropy projects 
quite successfully. They won the 
Outstanding Philanthropy award 
and they also received three 
distinguished service awards. 
Another important 
accomplishment for the sisters of 
Alpha Xi Delta was becoming 
Greek Week Champs for the 
eleventh year consecutively. 
They also gave an outstanding 
performance at the annual 
Spring Sing competition. They 
won second place in the 
competition. The sisters had a 
great deal of pride in the Greek 
system and they played an active 
part of campus life.

Zeta Tau Alpha 

Growing in Size 

The Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity 
is the third largest national sorori- 
ty. The women of Wesleyan's Del- 
ta Upsilon Chapter were honored 
to be a part of such a national 
honor. The local Wesleyan chap- 
ter has been increasing its num- 
bers within the past year as well. 
The chapter welcomed 15 new 
members into its family this 
spring. The sisters were proud to 
be a part of such a real, loving, 
and fun local chapter. 

The Zetas have truly made their 
mark on Wesleyan this year. The 
excitement started early in the 
year as they screamed with glee as 
sister Buffy Stoll was announced 
as the 1997 Homecoming Queen. 

The sisters enthusiasm after Home- 
coming led to several successful pro- 
jects this year. Their philanthropy, 
which they continually support, was 
the Susan G. Roman Breast Cancer 
Foundation. This year, in order to 
express their concerns, they held the 
first annual Candlelight Vigil for 
Breast Cancer Awareness. They 
raised money for the foundation by 
holding the Mr. Wesleyan contest, 
which was won by Tom Glennon. 
Another service project for the sis- 
ters was the adoption of Route 33 
for litter clean-up. 

The sisters enjoyed many good 
times and laughs this year and look- 
ed forward to more of the same in 
the future.

Alpha Sigma Phi 

Strong "Bonds 

The brothers of Alpha Sigma Phi 
had a rough start to the year. Upon 
returning to campus in the fall, the 
brothers attended a memorial ser- 
vice for Eric Sparks, one of their 
brothers. The emotions of the day 
and months to follow resulted in 
strong brotherly bonds. To honor 
their brother, Alpha Sigma Phi has 
established the Eric Sparks Memori- 
al Scholarship Fund. 

With the pioneering of Hickory 
Gateless, the brothers set up a new 
philanthropy project with the Up- 
shur County Head Start. In addition 
to various projects throughout the 
year with the school, the brothers 
also made Christmas possible for the 
kids. Alpha Sigma Phi brothers 

collected gifts from the communi- 
ty as well as purchasing some 
themselves. The gifts were then 
wrapped and distributed to 144 
kids who attended Headstart. 

As always, the brothers partici- 
pated in Christmas on Campus, 
Children's Festival, and the Spe- 
cial Olympics. They also cleaned 
up litter as part of the Adopt- A- 
Highway program. Another of 
their larger projects this year was 
the donation of over $1000 to 

The brothers of Alpha Sigma 
Phi prided themselves on the 
ideals of brotherhood and 
community service. They hoped 
for a continuation of both.

Chi Phi 


As always, the brothers of Chi 
Phi fraternity kept themselves ac- 
tive socially and academically. At- 
tending classes consumed a major- 
ity of the brothers time: however, 
there was always room for com- 
munity service. Their biggest 
project this year was the Adopt-A- 
Highway program. This has been 
a long running project for Chi Phi 
fraternity. The brothers also par- 
ticipated in Christmas On Campus 
and Children's Festival. The 
brothers won the hearts of all the 
females at Spring Sing when they 
began singing "Brown Eyed 

The brothers of the Delta Xi 
Chapter were able to keep their 

academic standing up and also enjoy 
themselves. The fall semester began 
with Chi Phi's annual Maui Waui 
party. The party took a different 
twist this year. Instead of being at 
the fraternity house, Maui Waui was 
held in the plaza outside of the cam- 
pus center and was co-sponsored by 
CAB. The change was well received 
by the entire campus community. 
The spring semester began with the 
thirty-third annual Hell's Angels 
party. The basement of Chi Phi re- 
sembled a gathering of bikers. 

Several new members joined the 
fraternity this year. The lessons of 
brotherhood would be passed on to 
them so that the tradition of Chi Phi 
would endure in the coming years.

Unity and 

The brothers of the Beta Chi 
Chapter of Kappa Alpha had anoth- 
er exciting year through close unity 
of brotherhood and involvement in 
service projects for bettering both 
the town of Buckhannon and cam- 
pus. The brothers of Kappa Alpha 
helped out with the special Olympics 
and donated money to various chari- 
ties, such as the Ronald McDonald 
House Charities and Project Ireland. 

On the annual Scholarship 
Awards for Greeks former Kappa 
Alpha President Mark Fair was de- 
servingly awarded "Greek Man of 
the Year" in 1997 for his contribu- 
tions to Greek life. The brothers of 

Kappa Alpha wish to continue 
their success for years to come. 
The highlight of the year for 
the brothers was winning the 
Greek Week trophy once again. 
The trophy has resided at KA 
for thirteen of the past fourteen 
years, a tradition the brothers 
hope to continue. The brothers 
look forward to another suc- 
cessful year at Wesleyan.

Theta Chi 


Theta Chi was founded over 
140 years ago at Norwich Univer- 
sity at Norwich, Vermont. Its 
founders dreamed of a fraternity 
based on high standards of broth- 
ers working toward a common 
goal. The Delta Gamma Chapter 
continued the dreams of its foun- 
ders. They won the Presidents 
Cup, which was their most cove- 
nant award during the 97-98 aca- 
demic year. It was an example of 
the high standards thev work to 

Theta Chi stressed academics 
above all else. They achieved their 
goal of maintaining the highest 
overall GPA of all fraternities on 
campus for the second straight 
year. They acquired several 

other achievements this year. These 
accomplishments helped strengthen 
a tradition that had continued over 
the past couple of years. 

Theta Chi participated in commu- 
nity events both on and off campus. 
They participated in clean-up davs at 
the Child Development Center and 
French Creek Elementary School. 
The chapter has also adopted a fami- 
h in the Buckhannon area. Several 
brothers were involved in the Big 
Brother/Big Sisters program. Final- 
ly, they helped at Christmas on Cam- 
pus, Children's Festival and the Spe- 
cial Olympics. Theta Chi 
represented well its motto, "Lend a 
Helping Hand," and "Theta Chi for 
Alma Mater."

Theta Xi 

The Kappa Tau Chapter of Theta 
Xi fraternity had another successful 
year. The brothers were active on 
campus and in the Buckhannon 
community. During a year of 
strained relations between the fra- 
ternities and the community, Theta 
Xi maintained the respect of its 
neighbors within the community 
and, more importantly, its neigh- 
bors. More improvements were 
made on their newly renovated 
house, including the upgrading of 
fire safety equipment and other inte- 
rior improvements. 

The brotherhood of Theta Xi fra- 
ternity was continuously involved in 
community service projects. They 
began the year by participating in 
the Heartwalk and they spent the 
entire year participating in Adopt-A- 
Highway. They were actively 

nvolved in Christmas on Campus 
and Children's Festival and they 
collected $600 for the Danny Alt- 
ers Memorial Scholarship Fund. 

The brothers had many honors 
this year. Jay Martin won Greek 
Man of the Year; Ben Sporcic was 
awarded Greek God; Shad 
Wachter won a scholarship from 
Order of Omega; several brothers 
received distinguished service 
awards; several others were 
named to the Dean's List; and the 
chapter remained above the all 
male GPA. They also won First 
Place in Spring Sing and Best Di- 

The brothers looked forward to 
next year when they would watch 
the Syracuse University basketball 
games and cheer on the mascot,

This was the year for Wesleyan 
sports to reach the outer limits. The 
hard work and dedication put forth by 
the athletes and coaches was 
admirable in the eyes of this college 
and the nation. Several teams made 
conference champions and many went 

The women's soccer team became 
Wesleyan s pride and joy this past 
year. The girls fought hard and in the 
end they received an invitation to the 
NCAA Division II Championships in 
California. Wesleyan was proud of its 
Lady Bobcats and the girls themselves 
were thrilled to gain national 
attention. All the teams created a 
sense of pride among the student 
body, no matter how far they made it 
in the league. 

It was a difficult task for the student 
athletes to balance academic life and 
their athletics. Hard work, 
determination, and caring professors 
helped everyone succeed. All student 
athletes were honored at an awards 
banquet at the end of the year. It was 
a time to thank the students who had 
built the reputation of Wesleyan. 
Wesleyan athletes had left their 
"paw" mark in the conference, region, 
and nation.

Women's Soccer 

The 1997 women's soccer team may have 
been one of the best athletic squads in 
school history with a second ranking in 
NCAA Division II. After the Bobcats hos- 
ted two post-season matches against Ash- 
land (Ohio) University and Truman State 
(Mo.) University, and beat both teams 1-0, 
they were given the opportunity to advance 
to the national semifinals in Southern Cali- 

In the semifinals, the Bobcats played 
Lynn (Fla.) University. What looked like a 
match that would have gone into sudden 
death, leading scorer Juli Hanrath knocked 
in an open net goal when a keeper rebound 
found her foot six yards out. For the nation- 
al trophy, the Bobcats lost to four-time de- 
fending champion Franklin-Pierce Univer- 
sity in the championship match Dec. 7, 

Wesleyan record breakers included fresh- 
man goalie Claudia Heim's 14 shutouts and 
0.60 goals-against-average, and Julie 
Hanrath's 22 single season goals and 46 
career goals, both of which surpassed Head 
Coach Linda Bauer's 1 994 marks. 

All six Wesleyan seniors, Jen Newkirk, 
Carrie Joyce, January Tantalo, Nicole Mon- 
roney, Carla Filippetti, and Amy Adams, 
were named all-conference. First teamers 
included Newkirk (also co-conference Play- 
er of the Year), Monroney, Joyce, and jun- 
iors Hanrath and Jessie Englehardt. Second 
teamers included Tantalo, Filippetti, Ad- 
ams, and junior Becky Nash. Bauer was 
named the conference's Coach of the Year 
and both she and Newkirk were selected to 
participate in the prestigious 
NSCAA/Umbro Select All-Star game in Ft. 
Lauderdale, Fla. 

The accolades for the 1997 women con- 
tinued with selections to the All-Region 
teams (first team: Newkirk, Hanrath; sec- 
ond team: Monroney, Filippetti and Nash), 
and All-America honors went to Newkirk 
on first team and Hanrath on second team. 
Bauer was also named NCAA Division II 
Women's Soccer Coach of the Year, a 
national honor. 

With such successful players, the women 
Bobcats ended their season 21-2-1.

you're upset, but the

The Bobcats finished the season with 
an impressive record of 16-5-1 by over- 
coming early season injuries to finish 
strong. With this success, the team cap- 
tured the fourth consecutive WVIAC 
title and hosted a first round NCAA II 
regional playoff match for the second 
consecutive year. 

The WVIAC Conference title mark- 
ed the fourth straight time the Bobcats 
have defeated the University of Charles- 
ton for the honor. The conference title 
and late season victories over top- 
ranked Lock Haven University and 
Truman State University helped secure 
Wesleyan's spot as the third seed in the 
regional playoffs. 

In the first round playoff against East 
Stroudsburg University, the Bobcats led 
by two goals midway through the sec- 
ond period. But as snow covered the 
Wood Street soccer field, Stroudsburg 
was able to come back and tie before the 
end of regulation. Unfortunately, with 
two overtimes, Stroudsburg came up 


with a goal for the win. 

Conference honors went to seniors 
Even Roestoen, David Burgess, Geir 
Stabeak and Rune Thuestacl on first 
team, Reece Hudson on second team, 
and Dane Street and Chip Pettit 
claimed honorable mentions. Head 
Coach Gavin Donaldson, who topped 
the 100 coaching wins mark at Wesley- 
an in 1997, was named WVIAC Coach 
of the Year. All-Region honors includ- 
ed Roestoen, Burgess, Stabeak, and 

Although hard practices and dedica- 
tion most likely led to the success of 
Bobcats, it could be attributed to the 
"new look" some of the members gave 
themselves. During the beginning of the 
season, after a loss, some team members 
decided to shave their heads bald. After 
this event, the Bobcats were unstopable. 
Perhaps next year, if the entire team 
sports the "new look," the Bobcats will 
be able to win the NCAA Divison II 

"While nothing short of a 
sixth National Champion- 
ship warrants success for 
this team, the Bobcats 
again showed why they're 
one of the best teams in 
the country. After a slow 
start, the team rolled to 
17-5-1 record. They cap- 
tured a 15th WVIAC title, 
2nd consecutive NCAA 
post season bid, and a na- 
tional ranking of 7th in 
the country." Head Coach 
Gavin Donaldson

The 1997 season proved to be as exciting 
as a rollercoaster. It started slow, but once it 
got rolling there were some unforgettable 
highs and lows. For the second consecutive 
season, the Bobcats advanced to the first 
round of the NCAA II playoffs and for the 
second consecutive season was elimated by 
Edinboro (Pa.) University. 

At Edinboro in the playoffs, Wesleyan's 
comeback performances surfaced once 
again, taking game one after falling behind 
6-0 and taking game three from being down 
14-6 to win 16-14. Unfortunately, the Bob- 
cats were unable to come back in game five. 

But the two consecutive losses were 
avenged during the regular season. The 
Bobcats were able to defeat Edinboro in 
four games. 

Wesleyan's 23-12 season accomplished 
many goals for the Bobcats with second year 
Head Coach Jaime Gordon. The team 
cranked out a record of 106 consecutive 
conference victories dating back to 1991. 
The Bobcats also won the WVIAC confer- 
ence championship for the seventh consecu- 
tive year by beating top-ranked University 

"This is the type 
of season that 
doesn't build 
character; it re- 
veals it."

of Charleston in five games. 

Other accomplishments in 1997 included 
new Wesleyan single match records by Amy 
McCall (.917 hitting percentage vs. Indiana 
Univ. (Pa.) on Sept. 6), Julie Kasprzak (33 
kills vs. Pace Univ. on Sept. 19), and Susan 
Wren (84 assists vs. Charleston on Nov. 30). 
Wren also broke Wesleyan career records in 
games played (526), aces (259), and assists 

All conference honors included first-team 
Wren and Kasprzak, second-team to McCall 
and Jennifer Zipf, along with Katie Dreis- 
bach and Meigan Todd as honorable men- 
tions. Wren was also named the confer- 
ence's Player of the Year. 

Year after year the Wesleyan Bobcats em- 
bark on a seemingly impossible journey — 
to get even better. This season's roller- 
coaster ride brought the Bobcats right back 
to where they started from. ..on top. 

Coach Jamie Gordon remarked, "This is 
the type of season that doesn't build charac- 
ter; it reveals it."

The men and women distance runners 
this year enjoyed a very successful season. 
The Wesleyan men's and women's teams 
upset Wheeling-Jesuit to take dual WVIAC 
crowns on October 31 in Shepherdstown. 
Head Coach Jesse Skiles comments that "In 
my whole coaching career, these were the 
sweetest victories because they were so un- 

The Wesleyan men were able to place 
two runners in the top five out of a field of 
58 and the Bobcats defeated the Cardinals 
with low score bv only two points, 47-49. 

Freshman runner Adam Branter crossed 
the end of the five-mile trek with a time of 
26:50, just 39 seconds behind the first-place 
finisher. In fifth place was Bobcat Chris 
Sappev with a time of 27:13. Branter and 
Sappev, being among the top five runners, 
were awarded All-WVIAC honors. This 
was Sappey's third-in-a-row. 

Other Bobcat finishers included Nick 
Champagne (12th, 27:54), Kevin Williams 
(13th, 28:05), Patrick Doyle (15th, 28:09), 
Juan Phillips (20th, 28:24), and Derek Fine- 
gan (22nd, 28:32). 
Although the women's team has won the 

last two consecutive WVIAC cham- 
pionships, its performance this past year 
seemed to be a miracle. After placing three 
runners in the top five, Summer Finnegan 
with a first place 19:44, Sara Walker with a 
third place 20:26, and Amy Williamswith a 
fourth place 20:36, the Bobcat team fin- 
ished the course with the understanding 
that it had come up one point short of 
Wheeling's 28 point outing. 

But the Bobcats soon found out that be- 
cause of a cross country rule that requires a 
participating team to finish at least five run- 
ners, the 15th place finish from Bluefield 
State was disqualified, allowing Bobcat 
Megan Shriver to move up one position. 
The one point gain tied Wheeling and the 
Bobcats had a split for the WVIAC title. 
Finnegan, Walker, and Williams were all 
named All-WVIAC. This was Finnegan's 
fourth consecutive honor and Walker's sec- 

Other Bobcat women finishers included 
Melba Munoz (1 1th. 21:24), Shriver (15th, 
22:07), Heather Zakrzewski (19th, 22:24), 
and Patty Ford (34th, 24:40).

coaching career, 
these were the 
sweetest victories 
because they were 
so unexpected."

The 1997 Bobcats finished the season 5- 
5. But. this 5-5 season could be considered 
two seasons. The first season was termed "0 
and 4." The second season was nothing less 
than spectacular. The success of the second 
half of the season was boasted by beating 
nationally ranked Glenville State. After this 
game, the Bobcats won four out of the last 
five games. 

Two Bobcat standouts were Mike Grippo 
and Ryan Bartemeyer. Grippo, the sopho- 
more running back, amassed 1,026 yards in 
1997 and all but 161 came in the last six 
games. Grippo broke two Wesleyan single- 
game records: most yards rushing (284) and 
most balls carried (45). His 284-yard Bobcat 
record is the WVIAC's second best effort in 
the history of the conference. In 
Bartemeyer's senior season, lie crushed six 
Wesleyan records including: points in a sea- 
son (98), TDs in a season (16), pass recep- 
tions in a season (70), TD receptions in a 
season and in a game (16,4), and reception 
yardage in a season (1,243). 

The quarterback duo Larry Drugmand 
and Scott Gasper rocked the record books 
with consistent performances in 1997. 

"This team had more char- 
acter and mental tough- 
ness than most. To be able 
to fight back from an 0-4 
start and finish in second 
place in the conference is 
a tremendous a c- 
complishment by these 
young men." 

— Assistant Coach Tim 

Drugmand broke Wesleyan's all-time pass- 
ing records in total career yards (5,308), 
total career completions (378) and, at the 
time, most career TDs (40). Gasper topped 
Drugmand's record-setting TD mark with 
three strikes in the season's finale against 
WVU-Tech, and also became the school's 
best percentage passer, completing 59.3% 
of his passes. 

The talented, offensive line which includ- 
ed Darrin McMillon, Mark Fair, Adam 
Martinv. David Ward, and Pat Courteman- 
che were forced down the stretch that al- 
lowed only 12 sacks. 

The defense also excelled. Wesleyan may 
have given up 1,011 yards on the ground in 
the first four games of 1997, but in its six- 
game "second season" the Bobcats allowed 
only 550. 

Weslyan placed 11 players on the 1997 
all-conference roster. First-teamers were 
Bartemeyer, Grippo, Fair, Whitfield, Ross, 
and Matthews. On second team were Sean 
Heffley, McMillon and Hassett. Honorable 
mentions went to Luke Rychlik and Cour-

This year could not have been any 
better for the women Bobcats. Not sin- 
ce its 1987-1988 NAIA championship 
seasons has the Women's tennis team 
celebrated such overall dominance as it 
had in 1997. Since the turn of the dec- 
ade, the Bobcat women have always fin- 
ished behind University of Charleston 
or West Liberty for the WVIAC cham- 
pionship. This year, the Bobcats were 
able to change history by having an 
undefeated season in the WVIAC and 
by beating rival West Liberty State Col- 
lege 31 points to 26 points at the 
championship tournament in Charles- 
ton. At the tournament, Wesleyan won 
six of nine events, including No. 3, 4, 5, 
and 6 singles matches and No. 1 and 
No. 3 doubles matches. 

Kathleen Klouse played as the team's 
third seed and finished the season with 
the team's best winning percentage at 

Playing as the fourth seed was fresh- 
man Brooke Campbell who posted the 

team's second best record of 19-3. 

Junior Susan Harris ended the season 
at 15-3 and played as the fifth seed, 
while junior Mary Ann Narutowicz 
played as the sixth seed and ended her 
season at 16-2. 

The success of the team could not 
have occurred without the impressive 
doubles. The number one seed of Dawn 
Vighetti and Klouse were able to win 
the championship, as well as the third 
seeded doubles of Narutowicz and 
Campbell. Vighetti's overall doubles re- 
cord in 1997 was 5-2. Klouse and 
Campbell each ended with 1 7-3 and 
Narutowicz ended the season with a 1 6- 
3 doubles mark. Although number two 
seed Jen Cole came up short at the 
tournament, she tallied an impressive 
1 3-6 season record and 1 4-4 in doubles. 

With most players able to return next 
year, hopefully the success from this 
season can be carried over to have an- 
other undefeated championship season 
in the WVIAC. 

"The team played 
well, improved 
during the season 
and played out- 
standing tennis in 
the tournament."

The 1997-98 Women's Basketball 
team ended its season 9-18 in a year 
marked by the continuing maturity 
of Bobcat youth. 

Missing the state championship 
race for the first time since taking 
the reigns of the Bobcat program 
five years ago, Head Coach Lori Fla- 
herty's young team made important 
strides that were not reflected by its 
overall record. 

Sophomore post player Julie Fre- 
gretto led the team in scoring, re- 
cording 409 points and yanked 
down 246 rebounds. Her exception- 
al play was honored at the end of the 
season by her first-team all- 
conference selection. This was an 
honor rare to underclassmen. 

Freshman sensation Shana Green 
turned many heads with her quick 
maturity on the court. Green, anoth- 
er extreme in-the-paint play- 
er, quickly became a dominant force 
in the league last season. 

"We improved in five 
statistical categories: 
three-point shooting, 
free throw percent, re- 
bounding, decreased 
turnovers and assists, 
and we're looking for- 
ward to a large core of 
players returning for 
next year." 

Head Coach Lori Fla- 

She racked up 333 points for a 12.3 
points-per-game average and a team 
leading 258 rebounds. Look for the 
Green/Fregetto combination to 
pound the interior of opponent de- 
fenses in the years ahead. 

Senior point guard Jennifer Pen- 
nell ended her orange and black ca- 
reer with 296 points. Adding 130 
assists to her record, Jen led the 
team for the fourth consecutive year 
in assists. 

The trouble spot for the 'Cats in 
1997-98 was turnovers, a problem 
that has plagued many recent teams. 
Handing over the ball 600 times for 
an average of 22 giveaways per 
game is something the Bobcats must 
improve on if next year's success is 
to materialize. 

Continued experience for the 
young, maturing players grounded 
the Bobcats with a solid future last 
season. They will look to gain new 
heights next fall.

Men's Basketball 

It was a year of rebounding for the 1 997- 
98 men's basketball program. 

As as team, the Bobcats rebounded from 
a cellar dwelling 1997 record of 3-24 to go 
11-16 in 1998 

Individually, senior Cameron Mack re- 
bounded his way into the record books with 
a 229 board-snatching performance to 
drive his career total to 929, third-best-all- 
time in the Wesleyan record books. 

As a goal, the team defied rumors in pre- 
season that it would again dwell near the 
bottom of the conference by boldly stating 
it would host a first round game in the 
conference tournament. Finishing the year 
eighth in the league not only satisfied the 
goal, but in the first round game the Bob- 
cats beat WVU-Tech and advanced to the 
second round of the conference tourna- 
ment for the first time since the playoffs 
moved to the Charleston Civic Center four 
years ago. 

Mack finished his Wesleyan career by 
posting a personal best, single season points 
output of 487 which boosted him up to 
eighth all-time in that category. Mack's ex- 
ceptional performance during the 1997-98 

campaign garnered him a first-team All 
Conference honor. 

Second in scoring for the Bobcats was 
Kendall Ellis whose 460 points and relent- 
less drive on the court made him the coach- 
es' selection for most improved player of 
the year. 

During the final two months of the sea- 
son, freshman Jason Westfall quickly 
showed why he would become a force in the 
conference. His 224 points and 121 re- 
bounds, the team's third best numbers in 
both categories, made him Wesleyan's 
men's basketball newcomer of the year. 

Certainly, shoes such as Mack's will be 
hard to fill next year. Add to this the depar- 
tures of two men whom Coach Miller ter- 
med "two of the best assistants I've ever 
had," Dondi Flemister and Chris Meighen, 
and it was apparent that another form of 
rebounding is in store for the Bobcats' next 

Optimism remains dominant on a squad 
that came together as a team to meet its own 
goals in 1 998. That type of optimism should 
drive next season's athletes toward equal, if 
not better heights. 

"We made a re- 
markable tur- 
naround this sea- 
son. The highlight 
was giving the 
fans a post season 
playoff game in 
our gymnasium."

Bobcat Swimming 

What do you get when you "dig-deep," tap- 
er, shave all your body hair, train before the 
sun rises, and sign a golden rock? To most, this 
question may be unusual, but to the Men's and 
Women's WVWC swim team it is the formula 
for a very successful year. 

On February 1 9-2 1 at the Penn-Ohio Con- 
ference and WVIAC Championships, both the 
Men's and Women's swim team had one of 
their best meets in recent years. With the best 
competition ever at the Penn-Ohio meet, both 
teams were still able to place 4th individually 
and 4th combined despite the small number of 
swimmers compared to other teams. The 
Women's team also placed 3rd in the WVIAC, 
while the Men's team placed 4th overall. 

Both teams were able to dominate in many 
of the events at the championships. In the 
women's 1650 yd freestyle, sophomore Kelly 
Van Fossen placed 2nd, while junior Shannon 
McKinney placed 3rd. Junior Stacy Brown and 
senior Karen Brown were able to sweep both 
the 100 and 200 yd backstroke with 1st from 
Stacy and second from Karen. 

On the men's side, three school relay 
records were broken in the 200 and 400 yd 
freestyle relays and 200 yd medley relay. 

"We had a real 
successful season 
and we should all 
be proud of our- 
selves." — Head 
Coach Scott Felix 

The men were also able to excel in the 50 yard 
freestyle and the 200 yd individual medley. Jun- 
iors Jeff Carlson and Ben Goodwin placed 3rd 
and 4th in the 50 yd freestyle, while senior Scott 
Olson was able to win the 200 yd individual 
medley, along with the personal best by junior 
Dave Klink breaking the two-minute barrier. 

The swim team also had the most swimmers 
ever in school history to qualify for Nationals in 
Division II. Qualifiers included Scott Olson, Mike 
Kelton, Jeff Carlson, and Ben Goodwin for the 
men's team, and Stacy Brown for the women's 
team. Olson finished 2nd in the 200 yd breath- 
stroke (2:04.50), 6th in 100 yd breathstroke 
(57.41), and 7th in the 200 yd IM. Kelton fin- 
ished 16th in the 100 yd butterfly (51.67). To- 
gether in the relays, Olson, Kelton, Carlson, and 
Goodwin placed 6th in the 200 yd medley relay 
(1:34.75). 1 1th in the 200 yd freestyle relay, and 
14th in the 400 yd freestyle relay (3:10.09). Stacy 
Brown broke school records and finished 4th 1 00 
yd backstroke (58.48), and 9th in the 200 yd 
backstroke (2:06.50). All swimmers became Ail- 
Americans with the men's team placing 1 4th and 
women's team 19th in the nation.

Having advanced to the regional tourna- 
ment field of four teams on May 9, the 
Bobcats lost to defending national cham- 
pion California (Pa.) University, 1-0. in a 
thrilling eight-inning, double-elimination 
opener. Bouncing immediately back, Wes- 
leyan pounded then No. 5-ranked Shippen- 
sburg(Pa.) University for a 4-3 victory, in its 
second game of the day. 

The Bobcats were set to go against host 
Bloomsburg (Pa.) University the following 
day, with California waiting in the wings, 
when rain soaked the field. The tourna- 
ment was cancelled and under NCAA regu- 
lations, California advanced to the Elite 
Eight as the highest regional seed. One 
week later, California captured its second 
consecutive national championship. 

Four-time WVIAC Pitcher of the Year 
Angela "Tex" Demel ended her career in 
the second inning of the conference title 
game when, after planting her foot for a 
pitch, she crumbled to the ground with a 
broken leg. Her career at Wesleyan gar- 
nered 857 strikeouts (in the NCAA top 10 
career all-time) and posted a four-year 
earned-run average of 0.86. 

With Demel out, all the attention cen- 
tered on freshman Beth Bauer. Not only 

did the right-hander enter a heated confer- 
ence title game after Demel's injury to re- 
cord a 4-3 victory over Alderson-Broaddus 
College, the youngster held California to 
only three hits in the regional tournament. 
Bauer's toughness in her first season was 
awarded with a first-team WVIAC All Con- 
ference selection, an honor rare to fresh- 
men. Her year-end E.R.A. of 1.04 was sec- 
ond best in the conference and her 51 
strikeouts was eighth in the conference. 

Senior shortstop Nancy Stonestreet was 
the team's batting and RBI champion for 
the second consecutive season, posting a 
.409 average for 46 RBIs. In each of her 
seasons as a Bobcat, she was named WVIAC 
Player of the Year and was a member of the 
WVIAC All-Tournament team. In her ca- 
reer at Wesleyan, Stonestreet tallied 27 
homeruns, 150 RBIs and averaged .435 at 
the plate. The remaining Bobcat seniors 
were Amy Wilfong, Kay Ann Fails, Emily 
Newman and Adrienne Smythe. 

"It's unfortunate this team didn't get the 
chance they deserved in the regionals," said 
Head Coach Steve Warner. "I'm proud of 
every one of them. Overcoming injuries 
coupled with the caliber of competition they 
faced makes them champions in my book." 

"We had a great 
season. We made 
NCAA playoffs, 
which was our 
goal. Our six 
seniors will be 
greatly missed."

According to some, the beginning of the 
1998 season would have given one the im- 
pression that the Bobcats were a No. 5 team 
in the conference at best. Few people gave 
Wesleyan much of a chance. With two of 
the league's best pitchers, Bill Everly and 
Eric Hott, departing in 1997, and a bullpen 
that was young and questionable it seemed 
unlikely that the Bobcats would even make 
the playoffs. 

Senior pitcher Bill Nevius awakened the 
skeptics by posting a top-5 conference per- 
formance with a 7-inning ERA of 2.30, 57 
strikeouts and a 9-2 record. 

Senior shortstop Lou Capolupo recorded 
a .417 average for 63 hits and 110 total 
bases in 151 at bats. Sophomore catcher 
Ben Gerkin ended the season with a .382 
batting average, the team's second best ef- 
fort. Nevius, Capolupo and Gerkin were all 
named to first team All-WVIAC. 

The Bobcats' run through the WVIAC 
tournament began with a ninth-inning 
come-from-behind victory over University 
of Charleston at home in the Southern Divi- 
sion single elimination playoff game. Then, 
in the first round of the double elimination 

tournament in Princeton, Wesleyan was 
shellacked, 21-9, by league leader West Vir- 
ginia State College. 

Forced to ascend to the loser's bracket 
the following day, the Bobcats found them- 
selves down 1 0-5 in the seventh inning 
against Shepherd College. But the Bobcats 
clawed back to even the game in the eighth 
inning before picking up the game winner 
on a Shepherd error in the bottom of the 

The same evening, the Bobcats got re- 
venge on State as Nevius threw a 5-hitter 
through 7 innings for a 13-1 victory. 

Wesleyan made it look easy in the first 
game for the conference crown, dropping 
the Toppers 10-4, to necessitate a final los- 
er-goes-home dog fight. But missed op- 
portunities ended the Bobcats' season as the 
Hilltoppers shut down Wesleyan's bats late 
in the title game to post a 5-4 victory. 

The 'Cats ended the season 28-17 when 
most had predicted a .500 season at best. If 
nothing else, the 1 998 Bobcat baseball team 
proved, loudly, that no one can ever effec- 
tively measure nor predict the true value of 
an athlete's will to succeed. 

"It was a very grati- 
fying year for our 
program in that what 
we thought might be 
an average season, 
turned out to be a 
very successful sea- 
son for us by fin- 
ishing as runner-up 
to Conference Cham- 
pion West Liberty"

Track and Field 

Wesleyan continued to field some of 
the best West Virginia collegiate track 
and field athletes in 1998 as the wom- 
en's team picked up its seventh con- 
secutive conference title and again sent 
800-meter sprinter Sarah Walker to the 
NCAA Division II National Finals. 

Trouncing the competition, the Bob- 
cat women collected 145 of the possible 
275 points at the conference's premier 
event held on Wesleyan's campus this 
season. Victories at the meet and hol- 
ders of 1998's All-WVIAC honors were 
Mandy Mack (shot put, 41.08 feet). 
Meg Delano (triple jump, 36.28 feet), 
Amy McCall (high jump, 5.42 feet), 
Patty Ford (200m, 25.67: 400m, 
58.44), Sara Walker (800m, 2:22.87: 
1500m, 4:52.89: 3000m, 11:10), Sum- 
mer Finnigan (5000m, 18:49.20), Au- 
rora Spang (400m hurdles, 64.90) and 
the 4x1 00m team of Ford, Spang, Mc- 
Call and Delano. 

Each of the conference titles by the 
Bobcat women also marked either Wes- 
levan or WVIAC conference records. 
McCall was named the WVIAC Field 

Athlete of the Year, a feat she also 
accomplished in 1996. Walker was 
named WVIAC Track Athlete of the 
Year, was the conference's most val- 
uable player, and placed tenth in the 
800-meter run at the NCAA national 

On the men's side, Wesleyan lell 72 
points shy of a dominating Wheeling- 
Jesuit team at the conference champion- 
ship. All-WVIAC honors went to Rod 
Hardin (discus, 150.25 feet) and Matt 
Greene (high jump, 6.64 feet) 

Hardin, the team's throwing might, 
led the team in scoring in 1998 with 71 
points. Sprinter Mom Keth garnered 
second place team points with 62.5. 
Greene was third with 48 points. 

Jesse Skiles continued to pad his dom- 
inance as a head coach in the confer- 
ence. His nineteen conference victories, 
including three in the 1997-98 athletic 
season, are five better than any other 
coach in the history of the conference. 
A great recruiting class for next season 
will help shore up his continuing pursuit 
for excellence. 

"The greatest wom- 
en's team I have ever 
coached. Hands 
Down! The men 
fought through a 
great deal of adversi- 
ty this year. Our run- 
ner-up finish in- 
cluded some strong

Golf and Tennis 

The opening meet at the Oxbow Golf and Coun- 
try Club in Belpre, Ohio saw Wesleyan sophomore 
Mike Carpenendo accomplish an unbelievable dou- 
ble eagle two on the par 5 fourth hole, a feat possibly 
more rare than a hole-in-one. His miraculous shot 
vaulted the Bobcats to a second place finish against a 
tough field of 1 5 teams. 

The Bobcats would place no better than third the 
rest of the season and would manage only fifth-place 
finish at the WVIAC Championship. 

In the championship meet, sophomore Jared Cost 
led the Bobcats, shooting a tenth-place 241 in three 
rounds of play to finish 25 over par. Teammate 
freshman Anthony Redden was 14th at the champi- 
onship event, posting a three-day total of 242. An- 
other freshman, Nick Mahlberg managed a 15th 
place finish, shooting a 243-point total on the par 72 
course at Cacapon State Park. 

Some exciting young talent was revealed in the 
Bobcats' 1998 season. The promise of a fruitful 
future has proven to be solid. 

Bobcat nemesis University of Charleston (UC) was 
joined by West Liberty State College as the confer- 
ence team to beat. Unfortunately, Wesleyan could 
defeat neither during the regular season and fell to 
both in the WVIAC championship to salvage a third 
place finish. 

No. 1 singles netter and only senior on the Bobcat 
squad Jared Luteran ended his fine career at Wesley- 
an with a 9-8 record and a 1 0-7 record while playing 
No. 1 doubles with hometown friend Ben Sprenger. 

Sprenger, a freshman, built a 7-10 record at the 
No. 2 singles spot in 1998. 

Junior Brian DeHaven was the team's most im- 
proved player. Positioned in the No. 3 singles seat, 
DeHaven posted a team best 14-3 record that includ- 
ed victories over both UC and West Liberty, the only 
Bobcat player to beat both schools at least once this 
season. Playing No. 2 doubles with freshman Devon 
Carr, DeHaven recorded 14-3 season. 

Carr, seeded at the No. 4 singles spot, recorded a 
1 0-7 season. Freshman Eric Gallagher and Jarred 
Roth each recorded 7-10 seasons in the No. 5 and 
No. 6 singles positions, respectively. The Gallagher- 
Roth No. 3 doubles team also recorded 7-10 record.

Athletic Trainers and 

Behind any successful 
athletic team there is a pro- 
ductive and efficient team 
of athletic trainers. The 
motto of the over 30 stu- 
dents and staff for the Wes- 
leyan athletic teams was "to 
provide high standards of 
professional care and a safe 
return to play" following 
an injury. 

This situation created 
one of the largest service 
groups on campus where 
the students acquired "real 
world" job experience as 
sports medicine majors.

cluded Jon Cox, Angela

Closing moments of the academ- 
ic year caused a variety of emo- 
tions for the entire campus commu- 
nity. Graduation ceremonies 
caught students, faculty, and staff 
reflecting upon the year's accom- 
plishments and concerns. 

Many "firsts" came to mind: the 
organization of a new women's so- 
rority, the national success of the 
women's soccer team, 100 wins for 
a volleyball team, and the first 
class of "laptop" freshmen. Con- 
cerns for the next academic year 
were projected: a new dean, new 
faculty, updated laptops, better 
college /community relations, in- 
creased understanding of diversi- 
ty, and always, budget issues. 

As members of the Wesleyan 
family contemplated these reflec- 
tive paws, they enthusiastically 
embraced the new graduates, 
wished them well and looked for- 
ward to their return campus visits 
as alumni. Undergraduates antici- 
pated the continuation of their 
Wesleyan experiences in the fall.

As another academic 
year concluded, graduates 
took with them thousands 
of Wesleyan memories. 

These memories included 
friendships, team competi- 
tion, sisterhood and broth- 
erhood, volunteer and trav- 
el experiences, and 
intellectual development. 
Undergraduates anticipat- 
ed the continuation of their 
collection of memories in 
the coming year. 

Faculty, staff, and stu- 
dents also looked forward 
to the challenge of develop- 
ing new ideas for activities 
which would lend them- 
selves to memorable paws 
for future graduates.
