WESLEYAN FEVER: 

A Case Study 




Registration is hub of excitement and activity. 

Returning students streamed out 
of automobiles gripping suitcases, 
ragged book bags, and last year's 
dog-eared Talking Heads Posters. 
They clapped each other's backs and 
shrieked hellos over the too-loud mu- 
sic that identified already occupied 
rooms. Freshmen students stumbled 
from family station wagons, followed 
closely by Mom and Dad porting 
endless bags of school supplies and 
munchies. The year, it seemed, had 
begun as any other at Wesleyan. 



Three Edgecombe Freshmen move into their dorm rooms.

ty^j^^ 



Wesley an Fever: Once You 




Derek Francis and member of Rocky Mount community enjoy a run 
around Wesleyan's sprawling grounds. 

But as days passed, students, faculty, 
and staff members began to notice 
something different, something that 
made this year at Wesleyan different 
from all the rest. Freshmen enrollment 
was up over 35 percent. The throngs of 
spirited freshmen, roving wide-eyed 
about the Wesleyan campus, could not 
help but add excitement to the feverish 
pitch of activity that traditionally char- 
acterizes the orientation and registra- 
tion period. 



Terri McMullen enjoys a break during RA training.

( iretchen LandshofT enjoys a stroll across one of Wesleyan's soc- 
cer fields, Anita Bailey, Krystal Crutchfield, and Beth Hodsdon 
lake lime out for fun. 



Students were signing up for par- 
ticipation in student activities in rec- 
ord numbers. Phi Beta Lambda, the 
business honorary could boast a big 
membership increase over last year. 
And these were only a few of the 
symptoms of the strange and wonder- 
ful fever that had begun to spread on 
the Wesleyan campus.

Members of the Dissenter 
staff for 1987 decided to look 
into this phenomenon. We 
have been collecting data 
since September and have 
recorded and published our 
findings here in this docu- 
ment, Wesleyan Fever: A 
Case Study. We invite you to 
review the data and make 
your own assessment of our 
study.

Whitney Houston Imitator 




Tamara Gates thrills audience with her Whitney Houston 
imitation. 

So what's an airband? That's a reasonable ques- 
tion. But how reasonable is the answer? An air- 
band is a group of vocalists who don't sing; it's a 
group of musicians who don't play. So what do 
they do? They pretend. And this year Wesleyan 
saw some of the greatest "pretenders" ever to 
appear in a lip sync contest at Wesleyan. 

"This was the third time to have a lip sync at 
Wesleyan and, overall, the whole show was more 
professionally done," said Dorothy Phiefer, Di- 
rector of Student Activities. "This year, for the 
first time at Wesleyan, we had Gordon Finney, 
General Manager of WRMT Radio, to serve as 
MC. And the groups were better prepared. They 
looked as if they'd really spent some time practic- 
ing and putting together costumes." 

The contestants are judged on their appear- 
ance, originality, and on lip sync. They can re- 
ceive one to ten points in each category. Cash 
prizes of $50.00 for first place and $25.00 for 
second place are awarded to the top acts. 

Tamara Oates, posing as Whitney Houston 
singing "How Will I Know," walked away with 
the $50.00 for first place. Second place went to 
Alpha Delta Chi.

A little glitz? A little glamour? Certainly it was a gala event for those 
gathered at the Sheraton on the evening of October 14 to celebrate Homecom- 
ing's grand finale, the Homecoming dance and the crowning of the Homecom- 
ing Queen. 

The band, Mirrors, electrified the audience with selections from the 70's to 
the 80's. Finally at 1 1 :00 came the high point of the evening, the introduction 
of the Homecoming Court and their escorts. 

Representing the freshman class were Gabrielle Griffis escorted by Jeff 
Schimbeno, Talita Irizauy escorted by Gerald Horton, and Gretchen Land- 
shoff escorted by Chris Bratcher. 

Representing the sophomore class were Krystal Crutchfield escorted by 
David Ferrell, Beth Hodsdon escorted by Eric Schreiber, and Lesley Freeman 
escorted by Dave Gruver. 



Libby Birdsong and Kenny Bulkin move to dance floor.

Sharon Campbell escorted by Mark Immler and Tamara Dates escorted by Derek 
Edwards. 

Senior class members of the court were Libby Birdsong escorted by Kenny 
Bulkin, Tiena Gaskins escorted by Randy Wisniewsky, and Suzanne Payne escort- 
ed by John Brackett. 

Students, faculty, and alumni waited in anticipation as Dr. McKita announced 
the 1986 North Carolina Wesleyan Homecoming Queen, Tamara Gates.

ENVIRONMENT 




— North Carolina Wesleyan College Campus 

— Environment in which subjects were studied is esti- 
mated to be that in which subjects spend 60% - 70% 
of their time. 

— Variables examined within the environment include 
particular locales, individual student subjects, and 
certain special events which appear to be followed by 
large outbreaks of Wesleyan Fever.

Dorms Provide Living, Learning 



Did we ever imagine sharing a home with over a hundred 
other people? Students in Nash, North, Edgecombe, and South 
dorms do just that. 

Wesleyan students find sharing their habitat with such a large 
variety of people as both an exciting and educational experi- 
ence. Junior Cindy Harrell finds dorm life enjoyable because 
"there is always someone around to talk with." Senior Mark 
Immler views his experience in Nash dorm as "an opportunity to 
learn how to live and work with others." He adds, "living in the 
dorm has given me an added sense of responsibility" 

Residence halls at Wesleyan are designed to provide a dynam- 
ic environment where students not only live together, but learn 
and grow together. To enhance the social and educational back- 
grounds of students, the resident directors and student life office 
provide parties, speakers, movies, and more for each dorm. 
When asked how he enjoyed dorm parties, freshman Danny 
Murphy said, "Since the college enforces the 21 year old drink- 
ing law, I don't usually attend dorm parties." Various speakers, 
such as resident assistants or the campus nurse, have addressed 
students in the dorms this year. Topics have varied from serious 
subjects like self defense and birth control, to lighter topics like 
exercising and makeup. 

Changes have been made this year in the residence halls to 
satisfy some of the different perceptions students at Wesleyan 
have about what dorm life should be. Open house policies have 
been relaxed; visiting students may now sign themselves in and 
not go through an R.A. To improve dorm safety, fire alarm 
systems have been installed in each dorm. Junior RA Derek 
Edwards admits, "The fire alarm system is an improvement for 
ensuring student safety, as long as students aren't tampering 
with them to cause false alarms."

RA's Enforce Dorm Policies. 



:il ■ 




Terry Hardison and Pam Wooten during RA training. 

"When students have a problem or want someone to 
chat with, whom can they go to?" RESIDENT ASSIS- 
TANTS. Pam Derrick, Director of Housing, sees the 
RA's main function as "a contact person between stu- 
dents and student life to assist in all the phases of 
service Wesleyan has to offer." One of the resident 
assistant's responsibilities is enforcing dorm policies, 
but senior RA Lisa Nelson and junior RA Kori Town- 
send see their responsibilities as a "counselor for stu- 
dents." They believe their primary duty as RA is help- 
ing students adjust to dorm life. Kori said, "I don't feel 
like I am here to have to enforce rules; students should 
learn to do that themselves." 

Four resident assistants for each dorm are selected 
by the resident directors, the director of housing, and 
the dean of student life through an interview selection 
process. They are paid a straight salary, depending on 
their years of service. As a special privilege, RA's re- 
ceive a private room for the price of a double room. 

This year, resident assistants are on duty from their 
rooms rather than from the lobby. Senior RA George 
Morse thinks this change "puts the RA's closer to what 
is really going on. Some people are in the lobby, but 
most students can be found on the floors. Since we are 
in our rooms, it is very convenient and easy for students 
to find us." 

To many students, resident assistants are their link 
for effective communication in the residence halls. Se- 
nior RA Thomas Taylor claims, "At first I think most 
students decide to be RA's for the money, but then they

Students Fill Leisure 



When NC Wesleyan students have leisure time, what do they 
do? Students may visit the gymnasium to lift weights, jog a mile 
around campus, or participate in intramural sports. Less phys- 
ical students may "catch a nap" between classes after a late 
night study session or hangout with friends in the dorms. 

When students wish to get off campus, they drive to the local 
malls and restaurants. The opening of new Golden East Mall 
last August offers students more places to visit and more job 
opportunities. Taking advantage of the new openings in the mall, 
junior Tamara Oates uses her spare time productively by work- 
ing as a salesclerk in the Limited. The new Sheraton, which 
opened last summer became a popular entertainment spot for 
those Wesleyan students who are 21 years old. 

Being located outside the city limits, the Wesleyan campus 
can be quite tranquil. Senior Diane Ciasca finds theWesleyan 
campus inviting because "the tranquil environment adds to the 
beauty of the campus." 

If students do not wish to participate in organizations or 
activities, they may use the student union facilities to play a 
video game or watch the large screen television. Students can 
eat in Doc's snackbar or do some shopping at the bookstore. 

Junior Cindy Harrell believes "opportunities on campus are 
available if students take advantage of them. The campus is like 
our own little community."

Peeper Incident Leads to 




"Perv Alert," the subject line of a recent memo elicited chuckles as 
well as concern from students on the North Carolina Wesleyan campus. 

A rash of peeping tom incidents in the women's dorms during Novem- 
ber led to tightened security as well as a safety awareness campaign 
among students and administration. The college hired additional securi- 
ty guards and regular campus security was "beefed up" according to 
Dean of Student Life Dr. Carleton McKita. 

On November 19, as reports that the peeper was on campus began to 
spread, students mobilized carrying baseball bats, umbrellas, and what- 
ever else they could lay their hands on and began their own search of the 
woods on campus. Camera crews and reporters from local television 
stations streamed onto the campus, after receiving a call from some 
concerned students. 

The peeper had been seen for the first time on November 1 0, when he 
wandered into the women's showers in North Dorm and exposed himself.

gram. The program provides services and activities which are 
designed to meet the varied Career Planning needs of individual 
students. Whether a freshman who is indecisive about the 
choice of an academic major or minor, or a senior investigating 
graduate schools, the Career Planning/Cooperative Education 
Program can provide assistance and guidance for developing 
effective career plans.

Players Perform Equus Fall Term 





\^ "" 



North Carolina Wesleyan no longer of- 
fers a theatre major. But Director Chuck 
Ackerman said he'd had a larger turnout 
for auditions for the fall production than 
ever before. The large turnout, allowed the 
theatre department to do a large show like 
Equus which requires a cast of fifteen. Ack- 
erman admits, "It was a real delight having 
that many try out." 

Peter Shaffer's Equus is a thrilling drama 
that takes place in Rokeby Psychiatric Hos- 
pital in Southern England. The time is the 
present. 

The only props used in Equus were horse- 
heads made out of heavy wire, covered with 
wire mesh; they were rented from a high 
school in Peabody, Massachusetts. 

Equus, a modern, serious kind of drama, 
is not the kind of play usually performed at 
D. S. Coltrane Theatre. Ackerman re- 
marked, "I believe this kind of play was 
good for the school and for the students who 
participated." Ackerman directed the play 
which ran from November 5-8, 1986. 



Top: Characters Alan Strang, played by Matt 
McKown; Jill Mason, played by Kathy Johnson; and

Volleyball Team Suffers 




,.v 



When six players did not return to the team and 
expected recruits did not show, second year volley- 
ball coach Diane Scherzer had to rebuild her team. 
She credits junior setter Debbie Ward for "running 
the offense" for the team. Coach Scherzer adds "ju- 
nior Sharon Fitzpatrick's hitting ability helped high- 
light the team's effort." Senior Lori Blackburn, who 
sat out of competition for two seasons, brought back 
some much needed experience. Finishing 4 - 25, the 
players strived together thoughout the season.

After a shaky 2-3 start. North Carolina Wesleyan roared to its 
best season ever with a 24-7 record, a Dixie Conference champi- 
onship and an NCAA quarterfinal finish. 

First-year coach Bill Chambers juggled a number of starting 
lineups for the Bishops early in the season before settling down 
with the right mix of veterans and young players. 

Two players were named to the 1st Team All-Dixie Confer- 
ence squad: Lloyd Watts, a senior from Fredericksburg. Va., and 
Chris Bratcher, a sophomore from Richmond, Va. Watts led the 
Bishops in scoring with a 19.3 average while Bratcher was scor- 
ing at a 16.8 clip. 

Midway through the 86-87 season, the Bishops were a re- 
spectable 7-5. However, with a stable lineup and some fine play. 



the Bishops reeled off a 12-1 winning mark to end the regular 
season at 19-6. 

In the Dixie Conference Tournament, N.C. Wesleyan rolled 
through three games with a 74-70 win over UNC-Greensboro, 
the clincher. 

In NCAA play, the Bishops captured the South Regional with 
a pair of clutch two-point games over Centre College, Ken., and 
Washington Univeristy, Mo. The Bishops final 8 status marked 
the best season ever for the Bishops, and the first time a Dixie 
Conference school had won the NCAA South Regional. 

For the Bishops, the future looks even brighter with Cham- 
bers going into his second year as head coach and the Bishops 
returning some key members of the memorable 86-87 squad.

Cheerleaders Worked Hard to 




Above: Suzanne Payne and Lesley Freeman are Cheerleader co-captains at Wesley- 
an. Right: Wesleyan's cheerleading squad performs stunts during halftime. 



Cheerleading began early this year for some of the squad. Just 
before school started this year, Lesley Freeman, Dianne Ciasca, 
and Suzanne Payne attended the Universal Cheerleading Associ- 
ation Camp which was held at Virginia Tech. Within the week, they 
learned many new cheers, chants, and stunt techniques. At the end 
of the week, they were awarded five blue ribbons and two red 
ribbons. The girls also won the spirit stick and brought back a 
trophy for the Most Improved Squad. 

The squad started practicing in September this year and didn't 
stop until the end of February. They spent many long hours learn- 
ing new dance routines and perfecting difficult stunts. And they 
tried to promote more school spirit by having the school's first pep 
rally to begin the men's basketball season.

After Disappointing Seasons 




The North Carolina Wesleyan tennis 
team rebounded after a number of disap- 
pointing seasons, with the Bishops posting a 
5-10 overall record. 

The Bishops, under first-year coach Ran- 
dy Wheeless, downed three Division II 
squads during the season. N.C. Wesleyan's 
five wins were as many as the squad has 
won in the last three years put together. 

No. 1 player Barry Nethercutt led the 
charge for the Bishops with a .500 record in 
singles. Nethercutt, a senior, was selected 
to the 2nd Team Coaches Select squad by 
the Dixie Conference.

If a Wesleyan student does not belong to one 
of the intercollegiate teams, other athletic op- 
portunities are available. Students may do in- 
dividual workouts in the weight room, shoot 
basketball in the gym, jog around the campus, 
or cycle into town. Or, they might play a match 
of tennis with a friend. 

The intramurals program, directed by Jim 
Bennington, offers athletic opportunities to 
students wishing to participate in team sports. 
The intramurals teams, which are co-ed, are 
open to every Wesleyan student; the only re- 
quirement is that a team roster must be filled 
out. Football, Softball, basketball, volleyball 
are the team sports offered. Individual compe- 
tition includes tennis, ping-pong, and pool. Fa- 
cilities available for intramurals are open 
fields in front of the dorms, tennis courts, the 
recreation room, and the gymnasium. 

All students are encouraged to participate in 
as many intramural activities as they wish.

Name Change Dropped: 



The Dissenter staff of 1986-87, 
headed by editor Johnny Francis, 
did its best to make this year's 
yearbook the best ever. Under the 
leadershp of a new advisor, Mrs. 
Margaret Ledbetter, the yearbook 
staff was able to gain fresh ideas on 
the production of a good yearbook. 
This is the first year that an advisor 
has been hired, on a consulting ba- 
sis, to oversee the production of the 
yearbook. Kathy Naraine served 
as chief copy writer, writing some 
80% of the copy for this edition of 
the Dissenter. Johnny Francis, in 
addition to his duties as editor, 
served as chief photographer, tak- 
ing nearly 85% of the book's pic- 
tures. 

Early in the year, the Dissenter 
staff debated the idea of changing 
the name of the yearbook; many 
students believed that "Dissenter" 



had a negative connotation. After 
receiving opposition from both fac- 
ulty and staff, the students decided 
to reconsider the move toward 
changing the name. The staff de- 
cided that if the name "Dissenter" 
was an important tradition to 
members in the Wesleyan commu- 
nity, the tradition should be pre- 
served. The idea was dropped. 

To help finance and promote this 
edition of the Dissenter, the year- 
book staff revived an old practice 
of selling ads to the Rocky Mount 
community. The staff enlisted the 
aid of Phi Beta Lambda, the busi- 
ness honorary, for the sale of ads. 
Students in the organization, led 
by President George Morse, sold 
ads to local businesses to raise 
money for the production of a suc- 
cessful yearbook.

Fritz Named Acting President; 



Each year North CaroHna Wesleyan College students and 
staff produce a new edition of the Dissenter to capture something 
of the vitality, purpose and spirit of the college. This year's 
annual is an important issue because of the transition in the 
president's office. On June 30, 1986, Dr. S. Bruce Petteway 
retired and I assumed the duties of Acting President. The chal- 
lenge put before the college was one of maintaining its momen- 
tum and not allowing the college to fall into some sort of holding 
pattern until a permanent president is named. 

From my personal perspective, I believe the college and its 
students have faired very well. Students, facuhy, and staff began 
the 1986-87 academic year with considerable optimism. Thus 
far, there have been few disappointments. Our optimism was 
bouyed considerably by the significant upturn in enrollment 
which is an important endorsement of the college's mission, 
programs, and faculty. The team-spirit exhibited by faculty and 
staff has been most gratifying. Clearly, we are working for a 
common purpose and common desire, to see North Carolina 
Wesleyan College and its students prosper. 

Earlier in the year, I said that I did not promise a quick-fix but 
offered instead to build on our solid foundation a college which is 
determined to fulfill its mission. Throughout the year, our efforts 
have been reinforced by a vitality which has permeated virtually 
every facet of our existence. Greater attention is being given to 
program support and the development of new ways to make our 
programs more effective, beneficial, and attractive to our stu- 
dents. 

There is much more that we want, and need to do to continue 
to improve our college. Certainly, we want to continue to be 
ambitious, to be eager to grow and prosper, and to build on the 
gains we have made this year. As one reviews the pages that 
follow, I think the vitality of North Carolina Wesleyan College 
will be apparent. I should like to extend my personal thanks to 
the entire Wesleyan College Community for its support and to 
the staff of the Dissenter for the production of this fine college 
annual.

Triangle East Comes to 





d 



i 



Students and faculty alike twittered in genuine 
excitement when they caught glimpses of former 
governor Jim Hunt on the Wesleyan campus. For- 
mer Gov. Hunt presided at the meeting of Triangle 
East, a syndicate of business and professional people 
from Wilson, Rocky Mount, Zebulon triangle. 

The concept that Triangle East is busy promoting 
involves recruiting industry complimentary to indus- 
try that is already in place in the Research Triangle. 
The industries being recruited would manufacture 
items needed in the production or packaging of items 
currently manufactured in the Research Triangle. 
Hunt is the president of this board and has, accord- 
ing to Richard Dollar, Vice-President in charge of 
Development at Wesleyan, "spear-headed the whole 
project."

"Buck" Leonard Honored at 




Most folks at Wesleyan love tradition. Tradition lends color 
and depth; it brings a certain richness to most every facet of the 
college's life. And Founder's Day at Wesleyan is not the least 
among a long list of great traditions. It is, in fact, a time for 
celebrating tradition at Wesleyan. 

In his Founder's Day address, Dr. Thomas Collins, President 
of Wesleyan College, 1959-1975, challenged all who were pre- 
sent to continue their support for liberal arts education. Dr. 
Collins served as Wesleyan's first president. 

The College paid special tribute to past president Dr. Bruce 
Petteway, unveiling a portrait of Dr. Petteway that will hang in 
the Trustee's Room next to the portrait of the first president of 
Wesleyan. 

Service awards, honoring years of service at Wesleyan, were 
presented to: Sophia Bridges, Vickie Faircloth, and Susan Mor- 
ris, Five-year Awards; William Barrett, Paul DeGategno, Ray 
Kirkland, Mary Yarborough, 10- Year Awards; David Jones, 15- 
Year Award; Curtis Batchelor, Lionel Bishop, Corbitt Rushing, 
and Rexford Tucker, 20- Year Awards; and Orris Dumas, 30- 
Year Award. 

The high-point of the convocation was the presentation of the 
Algernon Sidney Sullivan Award, presented to Walter Fenner 
"Buck" Leonard. The award is presented to one student and one 
community person each year. Recipients are chosen on the basis 
of their excellence of character and their service to humanity.

Nuclear Proliferation: 



"What is it that we really fear that pushes us to stock 
pile these nuclear weapons, which we know could lead to 
our own destruction?" The question, posed timidly and 
preceded by the modest disclaimer, "I know this is a silly, 
simple question," is anything but silly or simple. It is, 
perhaps, the very question that compelled some 75 per- 
sons from the surrounding area to venture from their 
homes on a cold, rainy morning in November to attend a 
day-long conference, sponsored by NC Wesleyan, devoted 
to examining the United Methodist Council of Bishop's 
document calling for a halt to nuclear proliferation. 

The conference, sponsored by Wesleyan and supported 
by a grant from United Methodist Higher Education, was 
held in the Leon Russell Chapel on November 15, from 
8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The focus of the conference was a 
Foundation Document, prepared by the United Methodist 
Council of Bishops, and titled "In Defense of Creation: 
The Nuclear Crisis and Just Peace." Speakers for the 
conference were: Robert T. Osborne, Professor of Religion 
at Duke University, speaking on the Biblical foundations 
for peace; Stanley Hauerwas, professor Theological Eth- 
ics at Duke University, speaking on the pacifist tradition; 
David Steinmetz, professor of Church History and Doc- 
trine at Duke University, speaking on the just war tradi- 
tion; Elbert Wethington, Professor Emeritus at Lebanon 
Valley College, speaking on the nuclear challenge to faith; 
and John Hildreth, Executive Director for Common 
Cause in Texas, speaking on policies for a just peace. 

The event, open to anyone, drew faculty members and 
students as well as ministers and lay people from many 
area churches. Faculty and students from Wesleyan par- 
ticipated in organizing the conference.

Watson Named JefFerson-Pilot 

Professor of 1987 



Dr. Richard L. Watson III, 
associate professor of history at 
Wesleyan, has been named the 
Jefferson-Pilot Professor of 
1987. 

As part of the Professorship, 
Watson received a small cash 
award and use of a personal 
computer and software, pro- 
vided by the college. 

Watson came to Wesleyan in 
1972. A scholar specializing in 
the history of South Africa, 
Watson spent last year on sab- 
batical leave doing research in 
Cape Town. His article, "Slav- 
ery and Idealogy: the South 
African Case" is due to be pub- 
lished in the International Jour- 



nal of African Historical Stud- 
ies. He has also written bio- 
graphical notes on Anton Lem- 
bede and Desmond Tutu for the 
Encyclopedia of World Biogra- 
phy. He is currently working on 
a book on the abolition of slav- 
ery in South Africa in the 19th 
century. 

The Jefferson-Pilot program 
is made possible by a grant from 
the Jefferson-Pilot Corpora- 
tion. The Professorship at 
Wesleyan was established in 
1982. Criteria for the appoint- 
ment include teaching excel- 
lence, scholarship, and commit- 
ment to Wesleyan.

Summary of Research 




A sidelong glance at the Wesleyan campus. 



Wesleyan Fever: 
A Case Study 

The research conducted here has been done in an effort to 
discover the causes and the nature of a fever that has infected 
and continues to infect students, faculty, and staff on the North 
Carolina Wesleyan campus. 

Though the exact cause of the fever remains unknown, re- 
searchers believe that a particular personality, combines with 
the energy generated by a range of Wesleyan activities, aca- 
demic, athletic, social, and spiritual, producing the reaction 
that, in this study, has been labeled Wesleyan fever 

The nature of the fever is also difficult to discuss in precise 
terms, since the fever manifests itself differently in different 
subjects. Researchers can only say that, thus far, all behaviors 
symptomatic of the fever are positive and seem to contribute to 
Wesleyan community's well being.
