This three story brick building was built by the Order of Odd Fellows who obtained a charter from the State of Tennessee on January 2, 1854. This was to be eventually bought by the Methodist Episcopal Church South on October 22, 1857, and then became known as Old College. At this time Old College came under the control of the Holston Conference. In 1858 Old College opens as the Athens Female College with seventy students. The college has always been used as an educational facility with the exception of the year 1862 when it was used as a hospital during the Civil War. After the Civil War, there was a dispute over the building and in a 1870 Supreme Court decision the building was returned to the Methodist Episcopal Church South. It was later called East Tennessee Wesleyan College and now is the focal point of the campus. Presently the McMinn County Living Heritage Museum is located in the Old College building. The museum was placed on the National Historical Register in 1983. Extensive renovation has taken place on Old College and nine rooms comprise the museum with each room sponsored by a family or company. The museum houses articles from McMinn, Meigs, and Monroe counties that date from 1820 to 1940. Tennessee Wesleyan College carries on the tradition set by Old College today. 17 Tennessee Wesleyan ' s underclass- men constitute three-fourth ' s of the student body. Our underclassmen are found in action as cheerleaders, athletes, and members of various organizations. As our Freshmen are getting used to being away from home, and the hustle of college life, our Sophomores are struggling to finish the year. The Juniors are faithfully looking forward to that wonderful next year. They are still en- joying this year as they find time for fun between studies. While the Senior class seems most important right now, it is these underclassmen that will be the leaders of tomorrow. 18 CLASSMEN 19 Derrick Akal Freshman Linch. Ky.

The Fisher Hall of Science was dedicated by J. W. Fisher of Newport, Tennessee, who was an active Trustee of Tennessee Wesleyan College. Mr. Fisher donated $250,000 for the construction of the building which is complete with laboratories, lecture rooms, conference rooms, and offices. Fisher Hall is dedicated to the memory of three generations of Fishers: Robert M. Fisher, Richard J. Fisher, Sr. and Richard J. Fisher, Jr. Fisher Hall is usually thought of as the science building since most of the building is used for Biology, Physics, and Chemistry classes. The laboratories are well-supplied with standard materials and valuable equipment. Fisher Hall currently has classrooms and offices for the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Speech and Theater, and Computer Science. The building also has a darkroom for the Communications Department and is used to store a variety of recreation equipment. 35 The faculty and staff at Tennessee Wesleyan College have one goal — to aid in the education of the students. Some of these members have been at T.W.C. for a number of years, while others are relatively new; however they work together to form a learning environment for the students. The most prominent attribute of our facul- ty and staff is their immediate friend- ship and eagerness to help. Each of them follow the student from his or her first day at T.W.C. thru gradua- tion day and all of them are always there to give support and an extra push toward that long lived goal! 36 AND STAFF 37 C Courtney Senn Math, B.S., U.S. Naval Acad.; MAT.

Now, Bedford is trapped behind an ugly chain link fence. Is there no justice in this world? 44 Townsend Memorial Hall was built in 1924. In 1951 the building was rededicated to the memory of the late Colonel W. B. Townsend, who was a generous benefactor of Tennessee Wesleyan College. Townsend Memorial Hall is sometimes referred to as the Administrative Building, for it houses the President ' s Office, the Academic Dean ' s office, the Admissions offices, and the Business office. There is also a board room used for meetings. An auditorium seating over nine hundred people is also located in Townsend. The Math Department has its offices upstairs above the auditorium. Next to these offices is a teachers ' lounge. There used to be a gymnasium in the basement of Townsend that seated over five hundred people. Ten- nessee Wesleyan ' s basketball games were played here before the new gymnasium was built. 45 This year at Wesleyan, there were a wide variety of special events. Among the special events covered. Homecom- ing ranked as a favorite. All-Sing followed with performances by Sigma Kappa, Alpha XI, and the Kids of Wesleyan. Dracula, the Fall produc- tion, was a chilling experience. Then the Winter drama productions of the Lifeguard and the Swimmer were splash hits. Lit Fest ends our special events section with super perfor- mances by many of the English classes. But don ' t worry, more special events will be featured later in the book. 46 EVENTS TENNESSEE WESLEYAN 1984-85 Homecoming Queen Beth Parham is congratulated by the 1983-84 Queen English Cartwright.

The Sigma Kappas won the awards for the small group as well as the large group. Here they are dressed up like short people. Grace Nicol and Missy Flanaigan were looking on as Carol Cannon was showing her stuff while doing the " Hokey Pokey. " The following Alpha Xi sorority members per- formed Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs. From left to right are Jane Cate, Jeanne Metcalf, Lisa Mason and Jennifer Moore. The faculty and staff of TWC loaned out their kids to perform in the All Sing pro- gram. The kids really enjoyed par- ticipating in this as much as the au- dience enjoyed watching them. 50 DRACULA — Winter Drama Production 4 V ♦ riP: Dracula, Gene Norman, dashed through the crowd to enhance the effects of his wretchedness.

BR: Dr. Folks, Becky Green and Dr. Pugh master the art of acting in the Garden of Eden. s_ The organizations of the campus of Tennessee Wesleyan College consists of two sororities (Sigma Kappa and Alpha Xi Delta), Choir, Consolidation (a musical group picked by audition), the Student Government Association, the Baptist Student Union, S.A.M. (business oriented), Alpha Chi (Scholarship), Circle K, Ambassadors, Wesleyan Christian Fellowship, the Biology Club, the International Club, and the Masqued Players. At least one of these organizations appeals to each of the T.W.C. students. They provide fellowship, service, and the building of new friendships. All of these organiza- tions have the respect of both the facul- ty and the student body. ORGAN 54 IZATIONS Alpha XI Delta . . . Alphi Xi Delta is a national fraternity on campus. It was founded at Lombard College in Gatesburg, Illinois. Alphi Xi was re- established on our campus in May of 1984. Alphi Xi Delta ' s colors are Double Blue and Gold; our flower is the pink Killarney rose; Keith Dailey is their Dream Man and their advisors are Dr. Genevieve Wiggins and Judy Griffith. This year ' s activities have included teacher treats on Friday, sponsoring the Cystic Fibrosis Skate-a-thon and working as hug- gers at the Special Olympics. This year ' s members are President Jane Cate, Vice- President Janice Clift, Vice-President Sheri Simmons, Jennifer Moore, Kay Etheridge (Treas.), Cynthia Edwards, Lisa Mason, Pam McCowan, Sara Inscho, Margaret Dan- nel and Jeanne Metcalf. Our members participate in the Halloween Arts Festival, R.A. ' s, Choir Members, S.A.M., Ambassadors, Alphi Chi and Who ' s Who. They operate the concession stand at the basketball games and participate in All Sing. 56 I ,- z True Friendship Shines Bright The members of Alpha Xi Delta sang a melody of songs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Dwarfs were Jane Cate (Bashful), Jennifer Moore (Doc), Jeanne Metcalf (Dopey), Missy Flanigan (Sleepy), Lisa Mason (Grumpy), Cynthia Edwards ( Happy ), Kay Etheridge (Snee- zy), Margaret Dannel (Snow White), and Keith Bailey as Prince Charming. As a community service project, the Alpha Xi ' s took the underprivil- eged children Christmas Shop- ping, helped with the Cystic Fibrosis Skating Fund- raiser, and judged a breakdancing contest. Some activities of the sorority on campus include working the con- cession stand for basketball games, decorating for school dances and participating in RUSH. 57 Sigma Kappa . . . L to R: Vivian Ring, Mary Marie Smith, Jennifer Kuykendall, Kimalee Jones, Mary Farmer, Lisa Baker, Julie White, Denise Rogers. Gamma Psi Chapter of Sigma Kappa Sorority is one of two national sororities on the Tennessee Wesleyan campus. It has been a major part of the T.W.C. Greek System since January of 1961. Lavender and Maroon are the sorority ' s colors. The violet is the flower and the pearl is their jewel. The Sigma Kappa participated in many things this year. One of the things the Sigma Kappas ' par- ticipated in was " All Sing " . Lisa, Mary Marie, Mary, Leslie, Jennifer were the small group of the Sigma ' s singing Chim-Chimney. They won first place in every division of the ISC All Sing. Denise Rogers greets Lisa Baker at the Initiation Banquet. The of- ficers of the sorority were: Acting Pres.: Denise Rogers, Pledge Trainer: Julie White, Sec: Denise DeLashmitt, Panhellonic delegate: Jennifer Kuykendall, Rush Chair- man: Denise DeLashmitt and Registrar: Vivian Ring. 58 A Sistership Dede Hammond, Leslie Vibbcrt, Joy Humberd, Mary Farmer, and Jennifer Kuykendall are laughing and eating at the House Party. The House Party may help to form lasting friendships, because these girls get together to share interests and laughs with one another. Being in this sorority, the girls have learned to make new friends. They seem to form one big happy family. r Leslie Vibbert, Mary Farmer, Cindy Melton, Mary Marie Smith and Kimalee Jones participated in the scavenger hunt which occurred during the Inspiration Week. Two of the items they had to find were a pair of underwear and a soccer ball. By looking at the smiles on their faces, especially Leslie ' s and Mary ' s, you can tell they enjoyed finding Brian Shaw ' s underwear which they are holding up for everyone to see.

It originally provided accommodations for the Science Department, which was referred to as the J. W. Fisher Laboratories. Two literary halls and the Fisher Library were also located in this building. Dean Wright had interested William Banfield of Beaver, Pennsylvania in contributing $16,400 to cover the cost of construction. Mr. Banfield ' s generosity was directed toward the construction of a memorial for his son, C. H. Banfield. Banfield Hall was opened October 7, 1902 and was formally dedicated May 19, 1903. In 1937, Mr. Durham donated $100,000 to Tennessee Wesleyan College for repairs and remodeling of the building. It was at this time that the name Banfield Hall was changed to Durham Hall. Durham Hall provides classrooms and offices for the departments of Business Management, History, English, Math, and Psychology.

A couple from New York City, Mr. and Mrs. Pfeiffer, donated the funds necessary for the library ' s construction. The Pfeiffers were very generous and the results of their contributions can still be seen to- day in the Robb Gymnasium, Sarahjvlerner Lawrence Hall and of course the library. When the Library was first constructed, only the top floor was used for the library. Classrooms and an art gallery were downstairs while the Chaplain occupied the current reserves office. In 1965 the entire building was finally devoted to the library. Originally the library was built to contain 20,000 volumes but it currently holds 69,000 volumes. The library consists of 1500 news books per year, audio-visual materials, a children ' s selection and a young adult collection. The library subscribes to 300 magazines each year. The Merner-Pfeiffer Library is very unique because it serves people from the area such as town borrowers and students. Students from the UTC, LIT and Cleveland State campuses as well as others come to this library. Most of the collection of books came from a man named Bishop Cooke who left his entire collection of books to the library upon his death. This brought about the Methodist Historical Collection. It is frequently used for writing the Methodist Church History and the Genealogy of the Methodist used by some Methodist preachers. Mrs. Harms is the Head Librarian at the Merner-Pfeiffer Library and she has been with the library for 21 years. The other longest member of the library staff is Mrs. Schutlz who has been with T.W.C. for 18 years. The tower of the library holds the old bell which dates from December 1872. It was used as a signal for classes to begin and end. 101 The long awaited time had come for our Senior class. Baccalaureate ceremonies were held previous to Graduation. They took place in Trini- ty United Methodist Church with Bishop Eusler as the speaker. Parents, guests and members of the senior ' s college family were present. Gradua- tion day was one of excitement and anticipation - it had finally arrived. There were various celebrations given in the honor of Wesleyan ' s seniors that included a picnic given by the Alumni Association and a reception given by President and Mrs. Cheek. Saddened by having to leave friends behind, the Seniors looked back at fond memories of their alma mater - Tennessee Wesleyan College. - 102 and GRADUATION 103 FINALLY BUSTIN ' LOOSE c Tammy Easier loved minute } G enior Robbie Davis was awarded the Sliger ' s Jewelers Award as well as the award iven for highest grade point average.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF TWC STYLE I CHOIR TOUR — A FINAL NOTE Everyone admitted that the beginning wasn ' t s glorious. Sure, riding on a bus with lots of friends loads of fun, but after 16 hours on what Mr. Chance now refers to as the Greyhound Hilton, it gets a little less than true fun. Other than the time spent on the bus, the remainder of the week provided many new and interesting experiences. Many of the choii members had never been so far north, and especialh to New York City, so the trip was an experience ir itself. Throughout the week they visited various placet in New Jersey; including Sea Bright, Rahway Phillipsburg and South Amboy. At each stop they made many new and lasting friends. The South may be known for hospitality, but in most places they visited, hospitality could not have been much better. They saw such things as the Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, ABC ' s Network Building, Scripps-Howard Publishing, Time-Life Magazine Building and St. Patrick ' s Cathedral. Several Choir members enjoyed " Chorus Line " at the Shubert Theater. As the school year ends for a senior, everything is a last. Choir tour this year was no excep- tion. The tour always brings the choir together like a family. Everyone cares for everyone else, and the uni- ty can ' t be broken. IA For Reference Not to be taken from this room 1
