On Oct. 10, the Senior Leadership Team and a group of volunteers joined forces to create meaningful gifts to give to the facilities team for all of their hard work and dedication.

The facilities team is responsible for maintaining Wesleyan’s beautiful campus. They set up and breakdown events, clean every room in all buildings and more. While keeping a strong work ethic, they make sure to express positivity in everything they do, and they are never seen with attitudes that aren’t always after achieving their golas. Although they are always appreciated it is more difficult for students to see the impact they are making, because many members of the team get to school after the students. After school hours, you will find the team picking up garbage students left behind from a morning snack or they will pick up that crumbled-up test which has 68 in red marker at the top, left behind from a sad student. The work ethic that encompasses the many members of the facilities team is truly awe inspiring, and they are a pure example of what to strive for when wanting to achieve the character trait of hard working.

Missions Season Has Officially Begun: Weekend Retreats

Mission trips, the staple of Wesleyan spring breaks, are quickly approaching. With these trips coming up, mission retreats are put in place to allow teams to really get to know each other before their trip. This year, Wesleyan is sending out ten different mission teams: nine during spring break and one, South Africa, during the summer.

Before they depart on their trips, the teams get to know each other better and bond as a team with a retreat. The purpose of the mission retreats is to “allow the teams to get away from the hustle and bustle of Wesleyan, from sports, from home and have a focused 24 hour period of time together to grow into a team,” said Amelia Davis, Dean of Student Ministries.
