Sadie season is rapidly approaching, which means the tides have officially turned. The guys get to sit back and relax, while the girls take on the role of coming up with ridiculously cheesy puns in order to ask that special someone to the dance.
This girls-ask-boys winter dance has been on Wesleyan’s annual calendar for nine years, thanks to Student Government Advisor and Student Activities Director, Brian Krehmeyer.
Krehmeyer proposed changing Sadie into a winter dance where dates were not encouraged, but the Student Government Staff overruled the vote and decided to keep the Sadie as is.
The night before a big test and especially during the nights of exam week the popular place for Wesleyan students to be is FAST Mentoring.
FAST Mentoring is a local tutoring business where Wesleyan students of all grades go to get extra help with their academics.
According to fastmentoring.com, FAST aims to make their services “go above and beyond a typical tutoring firm.” FAST uses a specific approach to each tutoring session known as the “FAST mentoring 3- step approach.” These three steps include asking the students what questions they have, letting the students defend what they think and sending the students home with a plan that helps them understand how to study the material on their own.
Taylor Orwick, office manager at FAST Mentoring, said the number of Wesleyan students that attend FAST has decreased in recent years but Wesleyan students still make up 37% of their students. In fact, there are exactly 241 Wesleyan students that attend FAST.
So, why is FAST so appealing to Wesleyan students? Many students love FAST so much because of the tutors and how they can go there with their friends. Senior Cullen Davis said he loves FAST because he has “close relationships with most of the tutors and most everyone who goes there develops the same type of relationship.” It is important to many students that they feel comfortable with their tutor and see them as an instructor as well as a friend.
Junior Madison McKemie said she loves FAST because “it is a one on one session and you can get help that maybe you wouldn’t receive in a classroom.”
School guidance counselor Heidi Lloyd adds a comment on tutoring. Lloyd said, “Tutoring can be a type of support that can be helpful when students are having difficulty grasping concepts.”
FAST Mentoring has always been a go-to tutoring spot for Wesleyan students and with exams approaching, Wesleyan students will be pouring into FAST as usual.
