Wesleyan Faculty Go Back to School

in Features by

As December arrives quickly, Wesleyan students find themselves stressing over their final exams and report cards. A familiar feeling that returns every year. However, Wesleyan students are not the only ones stressing out over papers and finals. Many Wesleyan teachers have gone back to school themselves, taking classes at night in pursuit of advanced degrees. These classes are with other teachers who are pursuing the same type of advanced degrees. In fact, one group of Wesleyan teachers have decided to go through this process together.

Wesleyan teachers Brian Krehmeyer, Mitchell Mayfield, Leah Baughn, Jamie Hemken, Alex Bufton and Kali Sessions are taking night school classes together at Wesleyan pursing a masters degree. They typically meet every Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The program that these teachers are involved in is based out of Gordon College, which is a Christian college in Wenham, MA.

Grinds My Gears

Sam Schmitt:

When I see Beau Blanton in the hall and I see him waving and I think it’s to me, so I wave back but really it’s to someone else and I realize he doesn’t actually love me so I cry myself to sleep… that grinds my gears a good bit.”

Under the Friday Night Lights

in Features/Sports by

Friday is typically everyone’s favorite day of the week, but the excitement doesn’t fully kick in until the football players line up on the sideline, and the lights illuminate the field at Wesleyan.

From the perspective of junior #11 defensive lineman and tight end Jackson Turner, “getting an opportunity to go out there and have fun with the football game and seeing the rewards of the hard work of the summer pay off” is what excites and fulfills him the most throughout the night.

It may intimidate many people to look up into the stands and see all the people looking down, but Turner said, “The more hype the crowd, the more hype the game… the team really feeds off of the energy of the crowd.” He also adds that the Wolves are his “second family,” and that he has loved “getting to know all the guys and becoming best friends with all of them.” Turner transferred from Mill Creek High School to Wesleyan his sophomore year, and he has been dominating since the day the season began. Despite his ongoing knee injury, Turner is a strong player and a great leader on and off the field. Turner gives this great piece of advice to students that want to get involved in the Friday Night Lights: “Have fun with it… it’s high school. Don’t take things for granted. These are going to be some of the most fun years of your life, and it goes by fast.”
