Freshmen Constance Harris and Elsah James are approached. Can they say what 180-Degree Theology teaches? “No.” Do they know what “eschatology” means? “Eschatology is… what.” The confusion goes beyond Bible, with similar sounding English classes making decisions hard for rising seniors. Some classes are strangely named, confusing students who still do not know the standard courses. Keep Reading
2017 was an arduous year for the United States. Deemed the deadliest year for mass shootings in U.S. history, the country finished the year with around 307 mass shootings. Police killed 1,147 people, and there was a substantial number of bombings in public places. England and France also made notable headlines in the U.S. However, 11.5 percent of Syria’s population has been killed or injured since 2011, proving that is it much rarer to see news like that make headlines in first-world countries.
With numerous public accusations and an intense focus on the media in recent months, the “Green & Gold” decided to reevaluate the true value of He Said; She Said journalism. Junior Hampton Henderson and senior Kelly Roth debate the pros and cons in an attempt to keep Wesleyan well-informed and up to date with the ever-changing times.
Tiny granules of black rubber seep into second-hand Nike Cleats. Flickering lights give off an aura of a decommissioned haunted house.

Think of your favorite November traditions. What comes to mind? Thanksgiving? Football? Celebrating Christmas at full force even though it’s only been one day since Halloween? There is one tradition that is often shunned and forgotten: No Shave November.
No Shave November is the sacred birthright of men everywhere. It was originally founded in the archaic year of 2009. It was started as a way to raise awareness for cancer, specifically prostate cancer. Each year there are over 150,000 new cases of this disease, and it is not slowing down any time soon. No Shave November is just a small way for an average person to make a difference. Participants in No Shave November are encouraged to donate the money they would spend on grooming products to charity instead. This year’s charities are the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer and St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
Although Wesleyan may have stripped away this rite of masculinity from us students during the school year, there is no restriction on students during the summer or teachers year-round. Let’s take a moment to appreciate some of the most bodacious beards Wesleyan has to offer.
