Wesleyan created the Fine Arts Circle of Honor in 2007 to show appreciation to alumni and members of the Wesleyan community who have made significant contributions to the Fine Arts program at Wesleyan. Meg Foster, Director of Fine Arts, said it is “a place to honor our best and brightest artists, in visual arts and the performing arts.” Because this is such a high honor to be nominated, the committee is very selective.
Buzzer-beaters, unpredictable upsets and one ultimate champion: March Madness is finally here. Starting the second week of March and running until the first week of April, the NCAA Basketball Tournament does not fail to entertain. This year’s bracket was announced in early February by the Division 1 men’s basketball committee. Since then, millions of fans have been sent into a frenzy of excitement; this is exactly the chaos that gives the tournament its name: March Madness.
The Wesleyan Swim and Dive team had an impressive performance at state to finish out their already successful season. Beginning in October, the Wet Wolves pushed through close to five months of strenuous training and a rigorous schedule to earn their spot at state. With such a talented state team, there was much potential for a great showing. Head Coach Kevin Kadzis said, “The team morale was really high. Everyone was very optimistic about the possibilities of doing very well.”
The wait is finally over, Sadie is here. High school students, get ready to dance the night away Saturday, Feb. 25, night from eight to eleven at Candler Plaza. The theme, which was announced in Jan. at Monday morning meeting, is “Kick the Dust Up.”
Students should come dressed in their best country attire, but remember to plan appropriately according to the weather. To go along with this year’s theme, the Student Government has rented a mechanical bull for students’ enjoyment.
Student Government Representative Daniel Salyers said, “I am definitely most excited about the mechanical bull that we will have for the dance. I mean, who doesn’t love watching people fall off of things?” Salyers also said that students should look forward to lots of snacks. The student government worked tirelessly to make this year’s Sadie dance one of the best in the past years. With the mechanical bull, cute country theme, and great music, the dance has great potential to be a success.
Everyone should expect an enjoyable night and maybe even a few bruises.
The Circle of Honor is a program that Wesleyan created in 2007 to recognize former Wesleyan athletes who made significant contributions to the athletic program while they were students at the school. Recognized as one of the highest honors, only a few people are inducted each year. In a recent interview, Head Athletic Director, Marc Khedouri, said, “[Throughout high school] a lot of students did a lot of really important things that are worthy of recognition and [they] accomplished a lot [too]. There is a character component to [this honor] as well, so we are not just recognizing students who were good athletically. [Instead], we are recognizing students of high character who were also good athletically.”
