On, Jan. 23, a group of Wesleyan female students went on a trip to visit the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology. While there, they went to The Georgia Tech Women in Engineering Conference. This event helped to educate women who are interested in pursuing a career in engineering and excite them about their future in math and science. It was a great learning experience for women who are interested in a career that is generally thought of as a male-dominated career. Freshman Harris Browder said, “I think as our world progresses it is and will become easier for all women to lead in men’s role in the workplace.” Many Wesleyan students went and learned about all the different types of engineering. Sophomore Mackenzie Maxwell said, “My favorite part of the trip were the activities we did. It was a great way to get a hands-on experience and learn more about engineering.”
On Feb. 1, the Wesleyan high school students got to take a break from the stress of everyday life and school and enjoy a wonderful night at the Winter Dance. Students put on their best attire for the masquerade-themed Winter Dance and headed over to Hoover Gymnasium for a memorable night. The Winter Dance is always highly anticipated by the Wesleyan students. The boys took a break from the nerves of asking the girls to each high school dance, and the girls took their big chance to ask the boys. Student government spent copious amount of time planning and preparing the Winter Dance so it would be the best Winter Dance yet. After months of planning the dance, it had finally arrived, and students were eager for the masquerade ball. With the famed DJ Fat Snacks providing some awesome tunes on the dance floor, the lively photo booth, the delicious refreshments, and the mysterious table of masks, the students and faculty raved about the success of the dance.

All around the globe families and friends come together to celebrate each other and give thanks to things that they are grateful for. The “Green and Gold” staff asked students and faculty in the Wesleyan Community about their Thanksgivings, this is what they said.
Abby Johnson said, “I am thankful for coffee frothers, candles that smell like Christmas trees, Taqueria Del Sol, pumpkin muffins, a neighborhood to take walks in, Michael Bublé’s Christmas album, my car and my fiancé Mr. Holmes. Every Thanksgiving, my siblings and I used to play a game of two-hand touch football in the street every Thanksgiving. We also always watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I think my favorite Thanksgiving food has to be this Jell-O dish my mom makes with a pretzel crust; it sounds weird, but it is really good.” Keep Reading
On Aug. 21, all of Wesleyan School gathered in Henderson Stadium to watch the Great American Eclipse.
“The eclipse provide[d] us with a terrific opportunity to witness the beauty of God’s creation and the mystery of His handiwork,” said Headmaster Chris Cleveland.
Science department chair Anna Myrick said, “People were most fascinated by how such a tiny sliver of Sun could still create so much light for us. This is a reminder that the smallest acts of kindness and good deeds can spread the light of God’s Kingdom to so many.”
When asked what experiencing the eclipse would entail, Myrick said, “You will see the Moon cross in front of the Sun. The sky will dim by around 90% and drop about five degrees in temperature. There could be a cool breeze, an ‘eclipse wind.’ Shadows will be altered and the darkness will begin in the western sky. We could see Venus as a star (in the Western sky) and Jupiter (in the Eastern Sky). The darkest areas will be in the northern part of the sky where totality is occurring.” Keep Reading
