Wesleyan Disciples Program Celebrates 10th Anniversary

In the summer of 2004, Reverend Bill Hurdle had an idea, and it was a good idea! “Let’s create a group of students called Wesleyan Disciples,” he said to President Ruth Knox and Dean Patty Gibbs. “Let’s make it an inclusive, diverse group of Christians and ask them to make a commitment to faith and service.

Anderson Cabin, but without enough evidence, the case went cold. In July, however, stained carpet and furniture were discovered in the Arboretum. To determine if the evidence was sufficient to re-open the case, Wesleyan’s own crime scene investigators – twenty five middle school girls from the Spectacles math and science camp – were given the task of determining whether or not the stains were blood.  More info
