The Wesley is an active community with more than just worship and small groups happening on a regular basis. We have a wide variety of activities going on each week to fit students’ needs. Here are just some of the things we do
Wesley Fridays |
What is the best way to kick off the weekend? With friends of course! Every few weeks the Wesley has a fun Friday event. These range from movie and board-game nights, to a fire or paint party in the backyard, to capture the flag in the Quad. Keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram to know when these events are coming up!
As an organization for students, we believe that having a safe and accessible space for productive studying is a key ingredient to success. Swing by any day during the week and you will find a number of students studying and doing course work. We have a number of areas available for this purpose so you can always find somewhere quiet if need be. During Finals Week the Wesley is almost solely devoted to this, with tables set up everywhere, snacks to munch on, dogs as some pet therapy to let the stress off one or two days of the week, and a biannual Pancake Dinner on Tuesday Night of finals week in the Fall and in the Spring.
Tailgating and Football Watch Parties |
What type of student organization wouldn’t support their team? Especially when that team is the Fighting Tigers of LSU! When there is a home game in Death Valley the campus comes alive and Wesley is no exception. We pull out the grill, tent, TV, a few chairs, and the pigskin and have a good old fashioned tailgate while we park cars. On away game weekends we gather upstairs to cheer on our team from afar. Geaux Tigers!!!
| Holiday Parties
Potlucks for Thanksgiving, costumes for Halloween, ugly sweaters and a gift exchange for Christmas, gal-entines and pal-entines in February, and crawfish for Mardi Gras. Getting together to take a break from school and celebrate with Wesley folks before you head home for the holidays is always a good time spent well.
Noodles and Nonsense |
Noodles and Nonsense is our big end of the school year bash. The Friday before finals week we gather together in the chapel to share in good food (all types of pasta), good fellowship, and lots of good laughs. N&N has been billed as a “talent-less talent show” . The acts are never perfect but always funny and entertaining. They have been anything and everything: singing, videos, The Semester Update (based on SNL’s “Weekend Update”), and even running around on stage swinging a stick set to live violin music (yes that happened one time). Whatever occurs N&N is never an event to be missed. Check out one of the past videos that has graced the screen
Other Events |
Ice cream runs, Fantasy Football leagues, bike rides, video game nights, camp-outs, and other spontaneous events gives you just a small taste of the things that the Wesley does.
