“A child from Uganda, a teenager from the U.S. and an adult from Johns Creek are all part of one humanity under Christ,” said Christian Life Director Greg Lisson. As part of February’s Christian Life theme, “One Humanity,” Wesleyan partnered with the Sozo Ugandan Children’s Choir to bring a unique celebration of diversity to the community.

Who was your first Wesleyan crush? I’ve been here since kindergarten, and Andrew Sabonis-Chafee was in fourth grade. I didn’t say a single word to him, but I told my mom I thought he was cute!
What was your most embarrassing Wesleyan moment? Second grade. Mrs. Walden’s class. Whenever she was teaching us something, she liked for us to save our questions until the end. During that lesson, I really had to go to the bathroom. REALLY badly. I raised my hand, but because it was in the middle of the lesson. I wasn’t called on. I kept my hand raised and started waving it around a little bit. Then I started panicking. Fast forward a few minutes, I wasn’t called on, and I wasn’t about to just leave the classroom (because I would have to “flip my card”), so I just went in my seat. I sat in the back of the classroom near the in-class sink so no one could see me, and no one knew. I felt so guilty that I got up slowly and got some paper towels from the sink behind me and brought them back to my seat to soak the wetness out of my chair. I did this four to five times with no one noticing. After the lesson I went to the bathroom and partially rinsed my skirt out with water. Luckily, it was the last lesson of the day, so we all just went home. I’ve been at Wesleyan for 13 years, and this story has never gotten out, but it’s senior year. It was time.
What will you miss most about Wesleyan? No question about it. I find it hard to believe that I will find a place again in my life filled with the same amount of love, Christian spirit and sense of community. I love Wesleyan.
What is one thing you wished you had done in high school? Water Polo. Freshman year I told myself I would do it senior year, but you can’t run cross country and play water polo.
What are three things you cannot live without? My sister Holland, my mom and her dry sense of humor, books and music are tied for third.
What was your dream job when you were a little kid versus what is your dream job now? When I was two, I wore my scrubs and lab coat to every doctor visit, and my pediatrician told me I could inherit his practice when he retired. I wanted to be a pediatrician more than anything when I was a kid. Now, I want to be an anesthesiologist. Keep Reading
As the tradition goes, every year on Feb. 2, a groundhog comes out of his den to tell the world whether there will be six more weeks of winter or an early spring. This day of wonder is known as Groundhog Day, and if you were wondering how meteorologists predict the weather, this is not it. Keep Reading
Whenever you think of the Winter Olympics, what is the first thing that comes to mind? It is probably figure skating or the trick-based snowboarding competitions. These kinds of popular events are what most people associate with the Winter Olympics, but there are a few other sports that fly under the radar or are considered extreme, borderline insane, or just plain odd.

All year long, the Wesleyan Admissions Department is hard at work preparing for the current season. While some refer to this season as “winter,” the admissions department and student ambassadors know it as admissions season – a time for prospective families to explore Wesleyan as a future school for their child.
