Registration is hub ol excitement .ind activity
Returning students streamed out
of automobiles gripping suitcases,
ragged book bags, and last years
dog-cared Talking Heads Posters.
They clapped each other's backs and
shrieked hellos over the too-loud mu-
sic that identified already occupied
rooms. Freshmen students stumbled
from family station wagons, followed
closely by Mom and Dad porting
endless bags of school supplies and
munchies. The year, it seemed, had
begun as any other at Wesleyan.

Derek Francis and member of Rocky Mount community enjoy a run
around Wesleyan's sprawling grounds.
But as days passed, students, faculty,
and staff members began to notice
something different, something that Q
made this year at Wesleyan different
from all the rest. Freshmen enrollment l
was up over 35 percent. The throngs of
spirited freshmen, roving wide-eyed
about the Wesleyan campus, could not
help but add excitement to the feverish
pitch of activity that traditionally char-
acterizes the orientation and registra-
tion period. '

Students were signing up for par-

membership increase over last year.
And these were only a few of the
symptoms ofthe strange and wonder-

Tamara Oates thrills audience with her Whitney Houston
So what's an airband? That's a reasonable ques-
tion. But how reasonable is the answer? An air-
band is a group of vocalists who don't singg it's a
group of musicians who don't play. So what do
they do? They pretend. And this year Wesleyan
saw some of the greatest "pretenders" ever to
appear in a lip sync contest at Wesleyan.
"This was the third time to have a lip sync at
Wesleyan and, overall, the whole show was more
professionally done," said Dorothy Phiefer, Di-
rector of Student Activities. "This year, for the
first time at Wesleyan, we had Gordon Finney,
General Manager of WRMT Radio, to serve as
MC. And the groups were better prepared. They
looked as if they'd really spent some time practic-
ing and putting together costumes."
The contestants are judged on their appear-
ance, originality, and on lip sync. They can re-
ceive one to ten points in each category. Cash
prizes of 550.00 for first place and 525.00 for
second place are awarded to the top acts,
Tamara Oates, posing as Whitney Houston
singing "How Will I Know," walked away with
the 550,00 for first place. Second place went to

-North Carolina Wesleyan College Campus
-Environment in which subjects were studied is esti-
mated to be that in which subjects spend 60? - 70?
of their time.
-Variables examined within the environment include
particular locales, individual student subjects, and
certain special events which appear to be followed by
large outbreaks of Wesleyan Fever.
Did we ever imagine sharing a home with over a hundred
other people? Students in Nash, North, Edgecombe, and South
dorms do just that.
Wesleyan students find sharing their habitat with such a large
variety of people as both an exciting and educational experi-
ence, Junior Cindy Harrell finds dorm life enjoyable because
"there is always someone around to talk with." Senior Mark
Immler views his experience in Nash dorm as "an opportunity to
learn how to live and work with others." He adds, "living in the
dorm has given me an added sense of responsibility."
Residence halls at Wesleyan are designed to provide a dynam-
ic environment where students not only live together, but learn
and grow together. To enhance the social and educational back-
grounds of students, the resident directors and student life office
provide parties, speakers, movies, and more for each dorm.
When asked how he enjoyed dorm parties, freshman Danny
Murphy said, "Since the college enforces the 21 year old drink-
ing law, I don't usually attend dorm parties." Various speakers,
such as resident assistants or the campus nurse, have addressed
students in the dorms this year. Topics have varied from serious
subjects like self defense and birth control, to lighter topics like
exercising and makeup.
Changes have been made this year in the residence halls to
satisfy some of the different perceptions students at Wesleyan
have about what dorm life should be. Open house policies have
been relaxedg visiting students may now sign themselves in and
not go through an R.A. To improve dorm safety, fire alarm
systems have been installed in each dorm. Junior RA Derek
Edwards admits, "The fire alarm system is an improvement for
ensuring student safety, as long as students arenit tampering
with them to cause false alarms."

Pi Enforce Dorm Policies,
fiiiffr' - '
Terry I-lardison and Pam Wooten during RA training.
"When students have a problem or want someone to
chat with, whom can they go to?" RESIDENTASSIS-
TANTS. Pam Derrick, Director of Housing, sees the
RNS main function as "a contact person between stu-
dents and student life to assist in all the phases of
service Wesleyan has to offer." One of the resident
assistant's responsibilities is enforcing dorm policies,
but senior RA Lisa Nelson and junior RA Kori Town-
send see their responsibilities as a "counselor for stu-
dents." They believe their primary duty as RA is help-
ing students adjust to dorm life. Kori said, "I don't feel
like I am here to have to enforce rulesg students should
learn to do that themselves."
Four resident assistants for each dorm are selected
by the resident directors, the director of housing, and
the dean of student life through an interview selection
process. They are paid a straight salary, depending on
their years of service. As a special privilege, RNS re-
ceive a private room for the price of a double room.
This year, resident assistants are on duty from their
rooms rather than from the lobby. Senior RA George
Morse thinks this change "puts the RAS closer to what
is really going on. Some people are in the lobby, but
most students can be found on the floors. Since we are
in our rooms, it is very convenient and easy for students
to find us."
To many students, resident assistants are their link
for effective communication in the residence halls. Se-
nior RAThomas Taylor claims, "At first I think most
students decide to be RNS for the money, but then they
stay with the job because of the experience and the
opportunity it offers for helping others."

Student F ill Leisuref
When NC Wesleyan students have leisure time, what do they
do? Students may visit the gymnasium to lift weights, jog a mile
around campus, or participate in intramural sports. Less phys-
ical students may "catch a nap' between classes after a late
night study session or hangout with friends in the dorms.
When students wish to get off campus, they drive to the local
malls and restaurants. The opening of new Golden East Mall
last August offers students more places to visit and more job
opportunities. Taking advantage of the new openings in the mall,
junior Tamara Oates uses her spare time productively by work-
ing as a salesclerk in the Limited. The new Sheraton, which
opened last summer became a popular entertainment spot for
those Wesleyan students who are 21 years old.
Being located outside the city limits, the Wesleyan campus
can be quite tranquil. Senior Diane Ciasca finds theWesleyan
campus inviting because "the tranquil environment adds to the
beauty of the campus."
If students do not wish to participate in organizations or
activities, they may use the student union facilities to play a
video game or watch the large screen television. Students can
eat in Doc's snackbar or do some shopping at the bookstore.
Junior Cindy Harrell believes "opportunities on campus are
available if students take advantage of them. The campus is like
our own little community."

Peeper Incident Leads to

f, 4 .- A
"Perv Alert," the subject line of a recent memo elicited chuckles as
well as concern from students on the North Carolina Wesleyan campus.
A rash of peeping tom incidents in the women's dorms during Novem-
ber led to tightened security as well as a safety awareness campaign
among students and administration. The college hired additional securi-
ty guards and regular campus security was "beefed up" according to

North Carolina Wesleyan no longer of-

Ackerman said he'd had a larger turnout
' n - a for auditions for the fall production than
ever before. The large turnout. allowed the
theatre department to do a large show like
Equus which requires a cast offifteen, Ack-
' erman admits. "lt was a real delight having
that many try out."
Peter Shaf'fer's Equus is a thrilling drama
that takes place in Rokeby Psychiatric Hos-
pital in Southern England, The time is the

The only props used in Equus were horse-
heads made out of heavy wire, covered with
.. wire mesh: they were rented from a high
school in Peabody. Massachusetts.
Equus. a modern. serious kind of drama.

After a shaky 2-3 start, North Carolina Wesleyan roared to its
best season ever with a 24-7 record, a Dixie Conference champi-
onship and an NCAA quarterfinal finish.
First-year coach Bill Chambers juggled a number of starting
lineups for the Bishops early in the season before settling down
with the right mix of veterans and young players.
Two players were named to the lst Team All-Dixie Confer-
ence squad: Lloyd Watts, a senior from Fredericksburg. Va., and
Chris Bratcher, a sophomore from Richmond, Va. Watts led the
Bishops in scoring with a 19.3 average while Bratcher was scor-
ing at a 16,8 clip.
Midway through the 86-87 season, the Bishops were a re-
spectable 7-5. However, with a stable lineup and some fine play.

the Bishops reeled off a 12-l winning mark to end the regular
season at 19-6.
In the Dixie Conference Tournament, N,C. Wesleyan rolled
through three games with a 74-70 win over UNC-Greensboro,
In NCAA play, the Bishops captured the South Regional with
a pair of clutch two-point games over Centre College. Ken.. and
Washington Univeristy, Mo. The Bishops final 8 status marked
the best season ever for the Bishops, and the first time a Dixie
Conference school had won the NCAA South Regional.
For the Bishops, the future looks even brighter with Cham-
bers going into his second year as head coach and the Bishops
returning some key members of the memorable 86487 squad.

Cheerleading began early this year for some of the squad. Just
before school started this year, Lesley Freeman, Dianne Ciasca,
and Suzanne Payne attended the Universal Cheerleading Associ-
ation Camp which was held at Virginia Tech. Within the week, they
learned many new cheers, chants, and stunt techniques. At the end
of the week, they were awarded five blue ribbons and two red
ribbons. The girls also won the spirit stick and brought back a
trophy for the Most Improved Squad.
The squad started practicing in September this year and didn't
stop until the end of February. They spent many long hours learn-
ing new dance routines and perfecting difficult stunts. And they
tried to promote more school spirit by having the school's first pep
rally to begin the men's basketball season.

The North Carolina Wesleyan tennis
team rebounded after a number of disap-
pointing seasons, with the Bishops posting a
5-10 overall record.
The Bishops, under first-year coach Ran-
dy Wheeless, downed three Division ll
squads during the season. NC. Wesleyan's
five wins were as many as the squad has
won in the last three years put together,
No. 1 player Barry Nethercutt led the
charge for the Bishops with a .500 record in
singles. Nethercutt, a senior, was selected
to the 2nd Team Coaches Select squad by
the Dixie Conference.

If a Wesleyan student does not belong to one
of the intercollegiate teams, other athletic op-
portunities are available. Students may do in-
dividual workouts in the weight room, shoot
basketball in the gym, jog around the campus,
or cycle into town. Or, they might play a match
of tennis with a friend.
The intramurals program, directed by Jim
Bennington, offers athletic opportunities to
students wishing to participate in team sports.
The intramurals teams, which are co-ed, are
open to every Wesleyan student: the only re-
quirement is that a team roster must be filled
out. Football, softball, basketball, volleyball
are the team sports offered. Individual compe-
tition includes tennis, ping-pong, and pool. Fa-
cilities available for intramurals are open
fields in front of the dorms, tennis courts, the
recreation room, and the gymnasium.
All students are encouraged to participate in
as many intramural activities as they wish.

The Dissenter staff of 1986-87,
headed by editor Johnny Francis,
did its best to make this year's
yearbook the best ever. Under the
leadershp of a new advisor, Mrs.
Margaret Ledbetter, the yearbook
staffwas able to gain fresh ideas on
the production of a good yearbook.
This is the first year that an advisor
has been hired, on a consulting ba-
sis, to oversee the production of the
yearbook. Kathy Naraine served
as chief copy writer, writing some
80fZ: of the copy for this edition of
the Dissenter. Johnny Francis, in
addition to his duties as editor,
served as chief photographer, tak-
ing nearly 85fZn of the book's pic-
Early in the year, the Dissenter
staff debated the idea of changing
the name of the yearbookg many
students believed that "Dissenter"
had a negative connotation. After
receiving opposition from both fac-
ulty and staff, the students decided
to reconsider the move toward
changing the name. The staff de-
cided that if the name "Dissenter"
was an important tradition to
members in the Wesleyan commu-
nity, the tradition should be pre-
served. The idea was dropped,
To help finance and promote this
edition of the Dissenter, the year-
book staff revived an old practice
of selling ads to the Rocky Mount
community. The staff enlisted the
aid of Phi Beta Lambda, the busi-
ness honorary, for the sale of ads.
Students in the organization, led
by President George Morse, sold
ads to local businesses to raise
money for the production of a suc-

Fritz Named Acting Presidentg
Each year North Carolina Wesleyan College students and
staff produce a new edition ofthe Dissenter to capture something
of the vitality, purpose and spirit of the college. This year's
annual is an important issue because of the transition in the
president's office. On June 30, 1986, Dr. S. Bruce Petteway
retired and I assumed the duties of Acting President. The chal-
lenge put before the college was one of maintaining its momen-
tum and not allowing the college to fall into some sort of holding
pattern until a permanent president is named.
From my personal perspective, I believe the college and its
students have faired very well. Students, faculty, and staff began
the 1986-87 academic year with considerable optimism. Thus
far, there have been few disappointments. Our optimism was
bouyed considerably by the significant upturn in enrollment
which is an important endorsement of the college's mission,
programs, and faculty. The team-spirit exhibited by faculty and
staff has been most gratifying. Clearly, we are working for a
common purpose and common desire, to see North Carolina
Wesleyan College and its students prosper.
Earlier in the year, I said that I did not promise a quick-fix but
offered instead to build on our solid foundation a college which is
determined to fulfill its mission. Throughout the year, our efforts
have been reinforced by a vitality which has permeated virtually
every facet of our existence. Greater attention is being given to
program support and the development of new ways to make our
programs more effective, beneficial, and attractive to our stu-
There is much more that we want, and need to do to continue
to improve our college. Certainly, we want to continue to be
ambitious, to be eager to grow and prosper, and to build on the
gains we have made this year. As one reviews the pages that
follow, I think the vitality of North Carolina Wesleyan College
will be apparent. I should like to extend my personal thanks to
the entire Wesleyan College Community for its support and to
the staff of the Dissenter for the production of this fine college

aBuck" Leonard Honored at
Most folks at Wesleyan love tradition. Tradition lends color
and depth: it brings a certain richness to most every facet of the
college's life. And Founder's Day at Wesleyan is not the least
among a long list of great traditions. It is, in fact, a time for
celebrating tradition at Wesleyan.
In his Founder's Day address, Dr. Thomas Collins, President
of Wesleyan College, l959-1975, challenged all who were pre-
sent to continue their support for liberal arts education. Dr.
Collins served as Wesleyan's first president.
The College paid special tribute to past president Dr. Bruce
Petteway, unveiling a portrait of Dr. Petteway that will hang in
the Trustees Room next to the portrait of the first president of
Service awards, honoring years of service at Wesleyan, were
presented to: Sophia Bridges, Vickie Faircloth. and Susan Mor-
ris, Five-year Awards, William Barrett, Paul DeGategno, Ray
Kirkland, Mary Yarborough, 10-Year Awards: David Jones, 15-
Year Awardg Curtis Batchelor, Lionel Bishop, Corbitt Rushing,
and Rexford Tucker, 20-Year Awards, and Orris Dumas, 30-
The high-point of the convocation was the presentation of the
Algernon Sidney Sullivan Award, presented to Walter Fenner
"Buck" Leonard. The award is presented to one student and one
community person each year. Recipients are chosen on the basis
of their excellence of character and their service to humanity.

"What is it that we really fear that pushes us to stock
pile these nuclear weapons, which we know could lead to
our own destruction?" The question, posed timidly and
preceded by the modest disclaimer, "I know this is a silly,
simple question," is anything but silly or simple. It is,
perhaps, the very question that compelled some 75 per-
sons from the surrounding area to venture from their
homes on a cold, rainy morning in November to attend a
day-long conference, sponsored by NC Wesleyan, devoted
to examining the United Methodist Council of Bishopls
document calling for a halt to nuclear proliferation.
The conference, sponsored by Wesleyan and supported
by a grant from United Methodist Higher Education, was
held in the Leon Russell Chapel on November 15, from
8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The focus of the conference was a
Foundation Document, prepared by the United Methodist
Council of Bishops, and titled "In Defense of Creation:
The Nuclear Crisis and Just Peace." Speakers for the
conference were: Robert T Osborne, Professor of Religion
at Duke University, speaking on the Biblical foundations
for peaceg Stanley Hauerwas, professor Theological Eth-
ics at Duke University, speaking on the pacifist traditiong
David Steinmetz, professor of Church History and Doc-
trine at Duke University, speaking on the just war tradi-
tion, Elbert Wethington, Professor Emeritus at Lebanon
Valley College, speaking on the nuclear challenge to faithg
and John Hildreth, Executive Director for Common
Cause in Texas, speaking on policies for a just peace.
The event, open to anyone, drew faculty members and
students as well as ministers and lay people from many
area churches. Faculty and students from Wesleyan par-
ticipated in organizing the conference.

A sidelong glance at the Wesleyan campus.
A Case Stud
The research conducted here has been done in an effort to
discover the causes and the nature of a fever that has infected
and continues to infect students, faculty, and staff on the North
Carolina Wesleyan campus.
Though the exact cause of the fever remains unknown, re-
searchers believe that a particular personality, combines with
the energy generated by a range of Wesleyan activities, aca-
demic, athletic, social, and spiritual, producing the reaction
that, in this study, has been labeled Wesleyan fever.
The nature of the fever is also difficult to discuss in precise
terms, since the fever manifests itself differently in different
subjects. Researchers can only say that, thus far, all behaviors
symptomatic of the fever are positive and seem to contribute to
Wesleyan community's well being.
