in Features by

As the school year comes to an end, many special senior events were planned for the Class of 2020. Exciting events and activities such as riding scooters, senior chapel and screaming Psalm 24 are some of the special events that every graduating class before was able to experience. Spring of senior year is supposed to be a time for seniors to reminisce on their high school years and look forward to their upcoming transition to college. When the beginning of the school year started in August, many last events were occurring for the seniors, and no one predicted the last events would come so soon for all of the seniors. While distance learning is still going on, the last day on campus was March 12 for all Wesleyan students.

Sean Casey in fifth grade.

In a job that I love, successful and possibly starting a family.

What was your most embarrassing moment at Wesleyan?

During sophomore year, my whole family got these tiny safety alarms and whenever you press the button, the alarm will go off with a very loud sound. I put this alarm in my school backpack. One day after lunch, my friends and I were sitting down in the hallway, and I had my backpack on. I leaned on my backpack and the alarm went off. Everyone was worried and thought it may be an alarm the school set off for some emergency. I then had to dig through my bag for about five minutes while it was still on and finally found the alarm to turn it off. Everyone asked me what was wrong after that, and it was the most embarrassing five minutes of my life.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

Beef tacos with rice and beans or spaghetti.

What are you most excited and scared for when entering your first year of college?

I am most excited to meet new people and find more friends outside the “Wesleyan bubble.” I am most scared that I will be homesick for the first couple of weeks or that the classwork will be really difficult.
