Spring 2015: Five things Texas Wesleyan is buzzing about this semester
Students celebrate the coming of spring during last year's Holi Festival of Colors on the campus mall. This year's festival is on March 5.
1. Dora's Dining Hall opens.
Students returning to campus this spring will be excited to see that their dining hall is back and better than ever. The expanded seating and food options revitalize and modernize our campus dining experience.
Electrical outlets, to charge your laptop while you eat, is one of our favorite perks. Read more about the $1.7 million project.
2. Table tennis team swings for 12th national championship.
Texas Wesleyan's legendary table tennis team is going for it all — again. Mark your calendars for these key collegiate tournaments and make plans to watch the nation's best in your very own Sid Richardson Center.
The U.S. National Table Tennis Team trials return to Texas Wesleyan, too. This is not garage ping pong, folks.
3. New life to Student Life.
The Office of Student Life is gearing up this semester to deliver great programs for students. They are also bringing in a new coordinator for student clubs and organizations. Save the date for these campus-wide events coming soon (see the Office of Student Life for details):
- Jan. 20-23 – Welcome Back Week
- Feb. 28 – Homecoming
- March 3 – Goostree Symposium
- March 5 – Holi Festival of Colors
- April 16 - University College Day (UCD) and Ram Jam
4. Rosedale Renaissance nears completion.
President Slabach's vision to revitalize our neighborhood starts with the Rosedale Renaissance and we're pleased to learn that all four elements of the project are on track to complete this summer.
The new 83-foot clock tower and entryway will change the face of our campus forever, and will be a huge source of pride for past, present and future Rams.
5. 125-year anniversary celebration takes shape.
Did you know that Texas Wesleyan was founded in 1890 and that we are the oldest* university in Fort Worth? This summer, the university will publish a coffee table-style book featuring Texas Wesleyan history and photos.
The arrival of the book will kick off a yearlong celebration of our 125th anniversary during the 2015-16 academic year.
*Our purple-and-white Horned Frog friends were founded in 1873 in Thorp Spring, Texas, but did not move to Fort Worth until 1910.
