She VOL. 1, NO. 10 NORTH CAROLINA WESLEYAN COLLEGE, ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1986 ^■1 mani ■ College Adds New Degrees In Business BISHOP VISITS — Bishop C.P. Minnick (center) is welcomed by North Carolina President S. Bruce Petteway (left) and Rev. Mark Wethirigton. Minnick was featured speaker during chapel service on Feb. 4. Bishop Speaks At Chapel Service By RICK SHOWALTER Bishop C. P. Minnick of the North Carolina Conference was the featured speaker dur ing chapel service on F’ebruary 4 at North Carolina Wesleyan. Minnick spoke on how God can make things happen in a person’s life if he will turn his life over to Him. Minnick made reference to the story of Moses and God in Exodus 4:1-4 in his message. He told how Moses did not trust God when he turned his staff into a snake and told him to grab it by the tail. Moses fled from the snake, but turned back to pick it up after God told him to do so. As Moses picked up the snake, it returned to its original form of a staff. Minnick compared the theme of this story to the theme of the lives of some of America’s greatest heroes. Men such as Benjamin Frank lin, Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Edison. He explained how these men turned their lives over to God and how he turned their talents and abili ties into greatendeavors that will never be forgotten. In concluding his message, Minnick left the audience with the words that God asked Moses to let them think about “What’s thatin your hand,” to make the audience think if they’re willing to turn their lives over to God and let him make the most of their abilities and talents. By MARK CRUM The Wesleyan faculty has passed a proposal to add three new degrees to the two already offered by the Department of Business Administration in the fall of 1986. The new busi ness degrees, which should get final approval by the Board of Trustees later this month, are in the areas of Finance, Per sonnel Management, and Marketing. Douglas Goodwin, Chair man of the Department of Bus iness Administration and a member of the Curriculum Committee, made the initial proposal for the new majors in November of 1985. “These new degrees are designed to pro vide the student with an inten sive concentration in these areas,” said Goodwin. The re quirements for the Marketing, Finance, and Personnel Man agement degrees include nu merous lower level business courses: ECOlll, f]C0ll2, ACC203, and ACC204. “These three new degrees will continue to meet the trend for more professional people in the working force. Goodwin also said, “The local business community is very excited about the three new degrees.” Goodwin also stated that two of the new business de grees, Finance and Marketing, are considered two of the more popular degrees on most col lege and university campuses. All three degrees can lead to careers in such areas as sales management, personnel ad ministration, and advertising. Currently, there are 481 stu dents at Wesleyan who are seeking degrees in the area of Business Administration. Survey Shows Dissatisfaction WIth S nack Bar By ANGELA PITTMAN On last December’s survey concerning “Doc’s,” the N.C. Wesleyan snack bar, “Doc’s” received “food marks on food quality, menu selection, (and) housekeeping, but fair on ser vice,” according to Dr. Erwin Berry, Director of Food Services and Hotel Management. “Constantly, this has been an embarrassment to me, "Berry said of the service at “Doc’s." (Continued on Page 4) Greeks Work Together For Successful Rush By JOHN HARTIGAN The start of February is the time of year when the names of uch organizations as Alpha Delta Chi, Nu Gamma Phi, Pi Epsilon, Sigma Phi Delta,and Sigma Pi are heard all over campus. This is the time when Rush begins. Campus fraterni ties and sororities announce their pledges, and subject them to a variety of pranks and prac tical jokes. This year’s Rush period was the most successful Wesleyan has seen since the early ’70s. The Greeks ended Rush with 25 men and 21 women pledging a fraternity or sorority. There are a number of rea sons why this year’s rush has been so successful. Dorothy Phifer, of the Student life office, thought much of the reason for the successful Rush was that “all of the Greek organizations worked together as a group in stead of single fraternities or sororities.” She also expressed her satis faction with the job the Inter F raternity Council did, noting the “I.F.C. and its president Mark Crum did an excellent job in organizing the Rush period.” Phifer, no stranger to the Greek system after being a member of a sorority herself, thought Wesleyan’s Rush was about “what she expected it to be.” Phifer thought all of the organizations and their presi dents, Steve Scalzi (ADX), Dav id Langlois (NGP), Kim Ross (SPD), Cindy Bovee (PE), and Mike Dolliver (SP), did an excel lent job in “recruting good stu dents as well as people who are interested in a social organiza tion.” Most of the Greek members shared Phifer's feelings. Crum feels “the success came about because of the pre-planning of the I.F.C.” The Rush period concluded with a ceremony in the cafete ria. Each Fraternity and Sorori ty announced their pledge class for the spring. Phifer was the originator of the ceremony. She said it let “the entire Wesleyan community see who is pledg ing.” The pledges will be even more noticable in the future as they will be seen carrying canes, bowling balls or standing on cafeteria tables singing.
