Senior Spotlights

Grace Tyler

What college are you applying to / going to?

UGA, Auburn, Virginia Tech, Santa Clara and Clemson.

Who was your first Wesleyan crush?

Dylan Jenkins in 6th grade.

What was your most embarrassing Wesleyan moment?

One time I ran into the Plunks and every faculty fellow at Chipotle my sophomore year. This encounter was embarrassing as it was Halloween and I was fully committed to my costume. My costume of course, was the Ghost of George Washington. Naturally, I dressed up in a very conservative ghost costume and powdered wig that hid any shred of my identity. I looked like a little boy and quickly took off my wig for each teacher to greet them.

What is one thing you wished you had done in high school?

Dated Beau Blanton.

If you had 24 hours left to live, what would you do?

Probably throw a quick pity party, then get Chipotle and see where the wind takes me.

What was your dream job when you were a little kid versus what is your dream job now?

I always thought it would be cool to be a dolphin trainer at Sea World, but that hasn’t panned out yet, so we’ll see. Keep Reading

From being launched off a blob, diving head first into the big cookie and playing games in the club house, the Young Life Retreat at Sharptop Cove is a exciting way for students to spend their Fall Break.

The weekend retreat is a time where students can take a breath from the constant business of their school weeks and have fun with each other. Senior Sophie Parsonnet said, “What I love most about the retreat is that it is always an awesome time to connect with the people around you and just really bask in God’s creation.” Keep Reading

The Strength of the Wolf is the Pack

in Sports by

Wesleyan super fans, while fond of Friday night lights, go out of their way to support other athletic and artistic endeavors. Whether it is witnessing the girls’ volleyball team ace Parkview, enduring the sauna-like heat of the natatorium to cheer on the Water Polo Wolves or congratulating cross country runners for a race well run on an early Saturday morning, these people give their all to show athletes the true meaning of community.

Each Friday night, Wesleyan super fans crowd Henderson Stadium to watch another battle between the Wolves and their opponent. One can hear the combined roar of an ecstatic student section and an upbeat marching band from all the way across Technology Parkway, signaling the epic finale of another great game: “Onward Wesleyan … in all we do, for victory we will fight! Wesleyan, we proudly hail that green, gold, white!” Keep Reading
