There are many great clubs offered at Wesleyan. One of the most diverse clubs is the Mosaic 7:9 club. It started three years ago at the request of two former students, Adaku Onwuka and Sheridan Davenport. This club comes together to celebrate diversity.
Jason Sheer, the faculty sponsor, said, “The name of the club, Mosaic 7:9 comes from the idea that we, like a mosaic, are a community of difference, and it is the difference that makes the community beautiful.”
The other half of the name comes from Revelation 7:9, when John saw many different people from many different nations, and they were all worshipping the same God.
“The name is a good reflection of why I personally care and why this matters at Wesleyan- I want to be a follower of Christ and this is the kind of community Christ is preparing for us,” said Sheer.
This year the club kicked things off with piñata festivities on the quad, but it is never too late to join. Mosaic 7:9 club meets once per month during lunch, along with the occasional leadership meeting. This is a time for students to plan the discussion for the next lunch meeting. This club hopes to diversify Wesleyan, and so far they have done an exceptional job.
Senior Sophia Kim is a participant of the club and she said that she hopes “the club will bring out different perespectives on how to benefit from diversity in Wesleyan.”
