Being situated halfway be-
tween the sunshine and
snow. makes Rocky Mount a
special place to be. To most
people. Rocky Mount may
seem to be just a place one
goes through to get some-
where else - it's not. When
one stops to "smell the
roses," one sees the unique-
ness of this southern town.
On the outskirts of Rocky
Mount, there lies a very spe-
cial place. North Carolina
Wesleyan College. With its
serpentine wall, towering
pines, green fields, and dis-
tinctive fountain, Wesleyan
is truely a beautiful place to
Although the exterior is
beautiful, it only makes up
half of the total beauty ofthe
college, Wesleyan's interior
is a mixture of different
types of people that come to-
gether in a nice harmony.
The college is composed of
students from 20 different
states, including the many
local residents from Rocky
Mount and surrounding
towns,the District ofColum-
bia, and seven foreign coun-
tries. The faculty and staff
are also a very special part of
the college community. Not
only do the majority of Wes-
leyan's professors hold doc-
torates, some are involved in
research, while others have
written books. Along with
Campus duties, Wesleyan's
faculty and staff are also in-
volved in many civic and
community organizations in
Rocky Mount. All of this
truely makes North Carolina
Wesleyan College the place

l The Place to be for Fun . . .
North Carolina Wesleyan offers stu-
dents a wide variety of activities and
interests. Since Wesleyan is smaller
than a lot of colleges one has the oppor-
tunity to be inolved in many aspects of
the college. Involvement in such areas
as Student Government. Athletics and
in various organizations are always
welcome. If your interest lies in areas
without formal organization one has
. the opportunity to form special interest
groups. One such group enabled many
students to experience white water
rafting for the first time.
Rocky Mount not only lies between
the two metropolitan centers of Florida
and New York, but it also lies between
the ocean and the mountains of North
Carolina. This unique position allows
an endless list of possible things to do.
One popular possibility was to enjoy
Florida during Spring Break this year.
Many of Wesleyan's students con-
verged upon such popular sites as St.
Augustine, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm
Beach, Cocoa Beach, and everyone's fa-
vorite, Disney World. While half of the
population of Wesleyan was soaking up
the rays on the beaches of Florida, the
other half was sliding down slopes of
New York and Vermont.
Besides the social activities on cam-
pus, many students are involved in the
community. Two of Wesleyan's largest
and most popular organizations in-
volved in the community are the lay-
cee's and the Volunteers for Youth. All
of these aspects come together to make
Wesleyan the place to be for fun.

When asked what some of the prob-
lems are with Wesleyan, the common
' responses are the size and the fact that
everybody knows everybody. To the
l students, those are the two major bene-
r fits. "But what about the advantages of
' a larger school?" What about them?. at
lWesleyan, you are known by your
name, where as in a big university, you
consist of a bunch of impersonal digits.
"Knowing everybody" is better than
not knowing them and having to look
over your shoulder every minute. Who
wants to share their life with someone
they do not know and therefore cannot
trust? At Wesleyan, the students, staff,
and faculty come together to form one
big family. The rapport that exist be-

From Orientation to Commencement,
Wesleyan is full of a variety of activities.
Academics play a major role in the lives
of our students. Statistics show that stu-
dents spend 80 to 100 hours in their liv-
ing environment as opposed to 14 to 20
hours in the classroom. Therefore, ac-
tivities play an important role in their

Wesleyan's Annual Spring
Fling brought lots of good times
and good tans. This year Spring
Fling took place on the 20th
and 21st of April. A record
breaking warm spell of tem-
peratures over 90 degrees en-
couraged people to come out
with towels and suntan lotion
to either watch or participate in
Saturday, the 20th started off
Spring Fling. At 12 noon stu-
dents, faculty and prospective
students all came out to enjoy a
picnic on the lawn. Carl Rosen
was a lunch time entertainer.
Many people caught rays,
threw frisbees and footballs as
they listened to Carl's songs
Later during the day our First
Annual Derby Day got under
way. Many people wore their
eggs during the egg toss, lost
their grip during the tennis
racket throw and lost their bal-
ance during the tug-of-war.
Cooling down in a friendly
game of "Simon Says," every-
one was ready for the obstacle
course. By the time that was
over we were ready to refuel
our stomach's at the pig-pickin.
While we ate, we listened to
"Brice Street" who were fol-
lowed by "Glassmoon." Again
the blankets came out as we
enjoyed an evening on the
Sunday wrapped up another
Spring Fling. Starting at 12
noon the campus went on
wheels with the Campus Skate.
Some people took their skates
off at 2:00 pm to play around in
the mudfest. Pi Epsilon battled
with Sigma Phi Delta in a clean
game of mud-football.
Throughout the day many peo-
ple stopped bythe patio to see a
humorous view of themselves
through the eyes of a Carica-
tures Artist, Ion Ljungberg. Atv
5:00 pm another successful
Spring Fling came to an end
leaving everyone involved
with many memories.

Coffeehouses provided the stu-
dents with many enjoyable nights of
entertainment. The intimate set-
tings of the coffeehouses provide a
closer relationship between the en-
tertainer and the students. The en-
tertainers performed a variety of
music and entertainment ranging
from rock to bluegrass. The enter-
tainers we have had this year have
been opening acts for many of to-
day's popular rock groups and popu-
lar solo entertainers.

Rock 'n Roll
This year at Wesleyan brought
about some changes in activities. In-
stead of contracting through agen-
cies that book home state bands, we
went with CMC Productions in Ra-
leigh. CMC has bands and solo per-
formers that have performed across
the country. We contracted Brice
Street and Classmoon, both nation-
ally known bands. The bands pro-
vided a variety of music for our An-
nual Spring Fling, April 20, 1985.
Glassmoon and Brice Street have
also performed at an all time favorite
area club, "My Club". Even though
some of the students have heard
both bands, they had the chance to
hear and enjoy both of the bands
right here at Wesleyan on the lawn.

What is an R.A.? An R.A. has a unique role as a teacher and leader that few
students are privileged to experience. Being an R.A. is an opportunity to grow, to
learn, and to experience responsibility in a working environment. There are four
key responsibilities that R.A.'s haveg they are administrative details, helping to
provide control, helping to establish a healthy resident hall environment and assist-
ing individual student needs.

North Carolina Wesleyan Colleges first faculty member.
Dr. William G. Sasser. is retiring this year after 25 years of
teaching service to the college. Sasser became Wesleyan's
first faculty member in 1960 as music professor and has
served as chairman of the music department since 1965.
Sasser was recently presented a Doctor of Humane Letters
Honorary Degree during Wesleyan's 22nd commencement
exercises. Faculty Secretary Dr. Allen S. lohnson read the
citation to Sasser.
Sasser began his career at Wesleyan in 1960 at the age of
33. He was completing his doctoral dissertation at UNC-
Chapel Hill when he was initially approached about teach-
ing at Wesleyan.
His first visit to the campus in February of 1960 didn't take
long -the only buildings under construction were the Bras-
7 a 9
K 2 2
well Administration Building and the power plant, After
several interviews and official assurances that the college
would be completed by the fall, Sasser became the first
teaching faculty member at Wesleyan.
With an endless list of activities, services, honors, and
awards under his belt, Sasser feels his time has come to
"I have given a lot to Wesleyan and made many lasting
friendships, and I didn't regret one minute of it." Sasser said.
His retirement plans include travel, music writing. and pri-
vate music lessons,
"I plan to do all those things I haven't had time to do until
now." he said. "I just want to feed my mind, my ears. and my
Iohn McCarthy served as the Ath-
letic Director and Basketball Coach at
N.C. Wesleyan for 8 years. Coach Mc-
Carthy came to Wesleyan in Septem-
ber of 1977, with an "outstanding
track record of turning programs
around and bringing out the best in a
team," according to Academic Dean
Iim O. Wilde. The overall athletic pro-
gram started progressing and the wins
were increasing. By 1979-80 the bas-
ketball team had finished number six
in the DIAC but it didn't stop there
because in 1983-84 the Bishops be-
came the DIAC Champions, regular
season, and Tournament. That same
year the Battling Bishops hosted the
NCAA South Region Tournament and
Coach Iohn McCarth
finished in the final 16 in the nation.
Iohn McCarthy as anyone can see
certainly turned our program around.
He is to be commended for his dedica-
tion, time, and energy he expended at
Wesleyan. As a result of Iohn's dedica-
tion, our athletic program can only go
upward and we thank you.
" 'Coach Mac' always
pushed his players to be
the best they could possi-
bly be, both on and off the
court. He wanted us to be
successful not only as an
athlete, but as a person."

Nancy Smith and Mrs. Cole
Graduating in 1981 from Wesleyan with a BA. in Math-
ematics, Nancy Smith in the Fall of 1982 started working as a
Resident Director of North Dorm. The following year Nancy
took on a second responsibility. that of Student Activities
Directorg two tough jobs, yet similar in certain ways.
She has brought to the students entertainment from all
over North Carolina. She has also organized other campus
activities such as Homecoming and Spring Fling.
In 1984, Nancy took
over as yearbook advisor,
a third responsibility
which took up a lot of her
free time. She has been a
great asset to the Wesley-
an community both on
and off campus. We will
miss her unbelievable
ability to accomplish just
about anything she starts.
Nancy relaxes on the sofa in the lob-

Mrs. Elizabeth Cole joined the Wesleyan
community in December of 1967. She always
had a friendly smile and an excellent memory
for names. The students. faculty and staff en-
joyed going into the cashiers office to cash
checks, get change or simply to say hello. Mrs.
Cole retired in December of 1984 after 17 dedi-
cated years tothe college. We miss her, but we
know that she is enjoying her time with her
family especially her grandchildren.

New Co-op Program
In its first year, local business and college
students are benefiting from the Cooperative
Education Program at North Carolina Wesley-
The program, designed to integrate class-
room instruction with on-the-job experience,
has attracted 72 area companies which have
employed 99 students in work experiences.
Local firms, however, are not the only estab-
lishments utilizing the skills of co-op students.
Through the program, two Wesleyans Coeds
have secured internships with the National In-
stitutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
Elisabeth Schweins, a junior from West Cer-
many majoring in biology and chemistry, trav-
eled to the Institute this summer. Senior Bonita
McClain, a chemistry major from Rocky

In its continuing effort to expand its academic pro-
grams. North Carolina Wesleyan College has added a new
maior to its courses of instruction. The new major. called
Food Service and Hotel Management. is designed to pre-
pare students for entry-level management positions in
the food service and hotel rnanageinent industry.
This niaior is the onlv four-year degree granting pro-
gram in the state, offering a BS. degree in Food St-rvire
and Hotel Managenient. Nationally, there are 7-1 tour-year
colleges that offer a degree in this course. Three junior
Colleges offer an associates arts degree in llospitalitv
Managenient in the state.
Last year all rnaiors were placed in ernplovnient posi-
tions upon graduation. Their placements cover Rocky
Mount to Charlotte to Washington, DC to Caracus, Vene-
zuella where 1984 graduate Lynn Forbes works with the
lnternational llotel Corporation as a Food and Beverage
Management Trainee. Most ofthe prograrn's majors work
in the lodging and food service industries. The rzourse
currently has an enrollment of 30 majoring students.
The major offers 30 hours of credit. 27 of which are
actual classroom hours. The remaining three hours are
given on an internship basis. To participate in this intern-
ship program and receive the three hours of credit, the
student must work at least six months in the lodging or
food service industry. There are several interesting

North Carolina Wesleyan College is a liberal arts college
which affirms the ideals of Christianity, the search for truth,
the sacredness of life, and the uniqueness of individuals. On
this foundation rests both liberal arts disciplines and pre-
professional and career programs.
We believe that the breadth of learning is a practical prepara-
tion for life. We intend that our graduates will not only be
scholars, but also capable citizens who have the ability to make
critical and independent judgements, the courage to recognize
and confront threats to human freedom and dignity, and the
capacity for responsible, productive and knowledgeable par-
ticipation in the world.

The academic regulations and the Courses of instruction that are
contained in the catalog, provide a diverse and flexible program for
all students. These programs have been planned by an excellent
faculty who intend that all instruction at North Carolina Wesleyan
College will be personalized and will meet the academic needs of
students who have a variety of interests and talents. Students are
urged to read all regulations and plan to study courses of instruction
in all areas in order to help plan their own educational programs.
Academics - 40
What is meant by the light side of
academic life is that not all of the stu-
dent's time is taken up by studying. A
large percentage of the students have
jobs on and off campus and the ones
that do not have jobs can usually be
found enjoying a novel that is not re-
quired to read or browsing through the
magazines in the library.

Most people are content to walk
around, breathe, and just exist. Most
people are content to perform the mini-
mum requirements of life. There are,
however, extremely rare human beings
who come along too infrequently.
These people are in love with life and
all its aspects. These people have rare
compassion and understanding for oth'
ers. They are excited about the joy and
beauty of the world and of all its ac-
complishments. They study, they love.
they work, they care . . .
Nancy Smith is such a person. She is
one of those rare people who has di-

Director and set designer Charles
Ackerman has constructed a cunning
set in the cramped confines of Coltrane
Theater and he ensures that the actor
use every inch of it. The colors and pat-
terns strike me as being from a much
later or more fantastical period than
12th century, but they satisfy most peo-
ple's conception of a castle and work
well. Depending on where one sits in
the audience, the stage's two forward
columns may block a character or some
action from view.
Ackerman has coaxed good perfor-

looking forward to their next show.

Boddie Sr., chairman of "A Day for Wes-
leyan '85' at a victory celebration din-
ner at Rose Hill Plantation. By the end
of the evening, the fundraising event
had a little more money
When the day's total was revealed
Tuesday night, it was S314,160, a little
over 8510.000 less than the goal.
"All right now, I don't want this
crowd to lose its enthusiasm," said
Boddie. "We didn't bring you out here
just to eat and drink. We brought you
here to meet this goal."
Boddie then broke into an auction-
eer's song, soliciting more donations
from the volunteers who had spent the
day calling on area businesses to seek
support for North Carolina Wesleyan
"Let me hear something out there.
You all had a good year," he said.
"You're living like it."
The crowd began responding slowly
to Boddie's appeal to meet the day's
goal of S325,000.
"You're all too fat and lazy. Next time
we're going to do this before you eat,"
Boddie warned. "I don't mind having
you out here for a night . . . It looks like
we're going to be here all night."
The crowd began to respond to Bod-
die, and within a few minutes, the
S325,000 goal was met.
"We can't be satisfied with just being
satisfied," he said to the crowd. "We
need a little more."
Slowly more money was given to the
campaign, which uses the money to
offset the operating expense of the col-
"Don't let anybody out," said Boddie.
Though the crowd of volunteers did
begin thinning at that point and one
volunteer began waving a white hand-
kerchief in surrender, the group did
raise the total to 5330.000
"You all have been a super crowd,"
he said. "Tell next year's volunteers
that 'A Day for Wesleyan' is fun.
Wesleyan College President S. Bruce
Petteway had spoken to the volunteers
at the kick-off breakfast and then at-
tended the report-in luncheon at the
t'What a wonderful day" Petteway
said. "We had a marvelous time. We
raised a lot of money We raised a lot of
The campaign began Tuesday morn-
ing with S199,360 already pledged to
the college. By the end of the report-in
luncheon, the campaign was running
slightly above last year's total, with
Iohn Ruddy, assistant vice president
for development at Wesleyan, said
many volunteers were saying that
some of the people they were to call on
were not in offices or in meetings. Vol-
unteers or staff in the Development Of-
fice at Wesleyan will make follow up
calls to those businesses.
An estimated 200 calls were not able
to be made. For some of those calls the
contributor was either not available or
had to check with a home office about
contributing to the campaign.
At the luncheon, Boddie was pleased
with the results the volunteers were
having during the morning. He thought
the campaign was going well and the
campaign was very worthwhile.
"This is not something that's just
started," Boddie said. "A lot of people
think this is important."
"I find it fthe campaignj a very excit-
ing program that they have set up for
us," said Mary Alice Holt of Nashville.
This was her second year as a volun-
teer for the campaign.
Holt said she had an easy morning
campaigning, mostly because the do-
nors had received advance notice that
someone would call.
"I find the most exciting part and the
most rewarding is the reception we re-
ceived from those we've contacted,"
Holt's team had raised 81,150 during
10 calls in the morning. She said there
had been no "period of deliberation"
from people she had called on.
"Everything is going excellent." said
Iimmy Stone. "I've had an excellent re-
sponse. Everyone seems to be excited
about Wesleyan and what it's done for
Charles Rose and the business he
had contacted had been very respon-
sive to the campaign. He has been
working with the campaign since its in-
ception in 1982.

esses were giving as much as they gave
last year or more.
"The community knows we've set
aside one day," Rose said, "When you
walk in, they already have something
He added that the campaign was a
good opportunity for people who have
an interest in the college to meet peo-
ple they wouldn't otherwise.
"It's an educational process." Rose
Richard Dollar, vice president for de-
velopment at Wesleyan, attributed the
success of the campaign to the enthusi-
asm ofthe volunteers and to advertis-
ing the event.
"There was no paid advertising bud-
get," Dollar said. "Advertising was all

Sisters In Society
Wesleyan Students form new "Sisters
in Society" group
To help bring North Carolina Wesley-
an College and the community closer
together, several Wesleyan students
have formed a new organization called
"Sisters in Society."
"The group's primary purpose is to
service both Wesleyan and the commu-
nity," SIS chairman Elizabeth Gasper-
ini, a freshman business administra-
tion and computer science major from
Morganton, stated in a news release.
The 19 member organization plans to
do its service work in several ways be-
ginning with a maleffemale beauty
pageant in April. Gasperini says pro-
ceeds from the pageant will go to
handicapped persons in Rocky Mount.
Mama leans is co-sponsoring the April
25 event, which will begin at 7:30 pm in
In addition, the group began a
cleanup on campus by raking and gar-
dening some of Wesleyan's wooded
areas. Members plan to continue this
service work to the college through
SIS is also helping the community's
elderly citizens with their yardwork
and housework. Two Rocky Mount
churches are providing SIS with lists of

As for long term goals, Gasperini in-
dicated that SIS wants to eventually
form a national chapter on the Wesley-
an campus, possibly becoming a full-
time service sorority The college now
has two social sororities and three so-

NCW Wins Conference
Prior to yesterday's baseball game at
North Carolina Wesleyan. five bats
were stolen from the Bishop dugout.
Unfortunately for Wrginia Wesleyan.
the Bishops' opponent yesterday, five
was not enoug .
The Bishops pounded out 19 hits and
built a five-run, first-inning cushion
enroute to a 14-2 win over the Blue
Marlins for their fifth consecutive Dix-
ie Conference championship.
The win puts the Bishops' record at
34-6-2 going into today's game at UNC-
Charlotte, and 7-1 in conference play.
The loss drops the Marlins to 28-7, 6-2
in the league.
The game was really over after the
first inning when the Bishops sent nine
batters to the plate and scored five runs
on five hits. Gene Sanguinetti started it
all off with a one-out single that bound-
ed over second base into center field.
After Steve Durelli walked, Charlie
Simpson singled to center field to score
Sanguinetti with the first run of the
Iim Provenzano followed Simpson
with a single to right-center field that
scored Durelli and put the Bishops up
2-0, before Iohn Haggerty doubled to
the fence in center field to score Pro-
venzano and Simpson.
Charlie Flowers then finished what
Sanguinetti started, singling to center
field and scoring Haggerty to give the
Bishops a 5-0 lead, which was all the
scoring they needed.
"I knew after those first nine batters
that the game was over," Bishop head
coach Mike Fox said. "l knew we
would continue to hit and score runs,
which we've been doing a lot lately,
and I knew Carl would shut them twr-
ginia Wesleyanj down.
Carl is Carl Payne, the Bishop's ace
pitcher, who raised his record to 10-1
with another fine performance. The
right hander from Rocky Mount gave
up just five hits and one earned run.
After the third inning, when the Mar-
lins scored both their runs on one hit
and two errors, not one Marlin player
reached third base and only two
"I was really pumped up today," said
Payne, who played high school ball at
But despite that, and despite the fact
he was playing in his final game on the
Wesleyan campus, Payne was replaced
by Frankie Moore in the ninth inning, a
fact that had several fans upset.
"Coach just wanted to give Frankie
some work and get him ready for the
regionalsf' Payne said. "And I under-
stand that. It didn't really bother me."
"Carl has already done all that could
be asked of him," Fox said. "and I want
our whole pitching staff to be ready for
post-season play. If Carl had been close
to a record, or something like that I
would have kept him in there. But
there was no problem. really."
Another player who had no problem
yesterday was Steve Durelli, who had
three hits and who slugged t'wo homer-
uns to bring his record-breaking total
this season to 20. He had broken the
record by hitting 17 homers but it had
been almost two weeks since Durelli
last hit one, which allowed Charlie
Simpson to tie him for the record. Until
"I wasn't really concerned about los-
ing my power." Durelli said. "l wasn't
striking out or anything. I was still hit-
ting the ball hard, but it just wouldr1't
carry like it will here. Plus, Charlie
went on a heck ofa tear. So I just altered
my swing a little bit."
"I really felt good at the plate," said
Durelli, who was also playing his final
home game. "All but one of my homers
this year have come on this field and I
was really up for this game. If you
couldn't get up for this game. you
couldn't get up for anything."
What's even more amazing is that
Durelli had to use a bat he'd never used
before because of the pre-game theft.
"I had this bat in the closet in my
room," he said. holding up .in alumi-
num Louisville Sluggvr. "I was gonna
save it for regionals so that it wouldu't
get banged up. The ball jumps oil it
Durelli's third hit, though, was a less
than spectacular infield single that
went straight up in the air and came
down without being caught while the
Virginia Wesleyan pitcher. shortstop
and third baseman could not decide
who would make the catch.
"I was a little anxious on that hit,"
Durelli said. "After those homers, I
really wanted to go deep with the ball
and just got under it."
Durelli credited the defensive play of
his team as the key to victory, though,
and the reason for the one-sidedness of
"We're finally starting to play again
like we did at the beginning of the
year," he said. referring to the Bishops
near-perfect fielding. "Richard
iBeauprej is making all the plays at
shortstop, and l've found a comfortable
spot at third base. and our pitching is
coming around. too."
Fox simply said that "we came out
ready to play and busted their tails. We
were playing for the championship and
the seniors' last game. l've got 27 play-
ers who all work equally hard and that
has been the key."

to initiate a process of coming to grips with the Cen-

Through the ten films four panel discussions and
two keynote speakers symposium participants were
exposed to many of the main dimensions of The
Central American Crisis and the confusing variety
of interpretations about what is happening and what
- if anything - the United States should and could
do about it. Political analyst for the Marxist regime
in Nicaragua Francisco Campbell ably defended his
nation s against the Carter and Reagan Administra-

liani equally ably defended the United States policy
in Central America.
The slate of films shown were documentaries on
various aspects of Central American Crisis: literacy
campaigns in Sandinista Nicaragua economic im-
perialism in Honduras the role of women in the
guerrilla armies and official death squad terror-

ran through all the films was the ambigious but in-

ln the Fall of 1984, a new form of cam-
pus governance was initiated and named
The Community Council of North Caroli-
na Wesleyan College. The Council, recog-
nizing that on a small campus everything
that happes affects all the elements of the
campus community, was designed to re-
present the interests of students, faculty,
staff, and administrators.
All matters of academic, social, and so-
cietal concerns that bear upon the cam-
pus community are brought before the
Council through seven committees. The
formation of this form of community gov-
ernance is a milestone in the history of
the College and, as it becomes estab-
lished, will provide a vital link between
all the campus constituencies.
Elected to the first Community Council
for 1984-85 were: Fred Gilbert, Presidentg
Adam Slawski, Wce Presidentg Warline
Harry, Secretary, Vera Hardy, Treasurer.
Also elected as representatives of classes,
residence halls, faculty and staff were:

niewsky, Kathy Crickmore, Amanda Ba-
lish, Mary O'Sullivan, Tim Taylor, Her-
bert Washington, Donna Hardison, Tom

This year Wesleyan is full of many new
faces and some returning. We are a mix-
ture of many different cities, states, and
countries. We as students are combined to
make a union - we form a family. For two
semesters we spend each day getting to
know one another better and making
those long lasting friendships.
The faculty here has many goals, one of
which is to teach us. They are there to
help us and to guide us. Problems which
arrive are always met with a frren
smile and a kind, "Let's talk about it' 'l
most admirable impression of the fact
is that they give us their all in return
give them ours.
From the Dean to the F1nanc1al Aid
fice the staff is somethin else The h
the hardest job of all, they are the m
reasons Wesleyan runs smoothly T
are always working to keep this school
