Only a few heaps of snow remain on campus on this 53-degree day in Middletown, March 29. 

On March 13, Winter Storm Stella powdered #Wesleyan’s campus with more than a foot of snow. 

The month of February marked the campus-wide celebration of Black History Month. Hosted by Ujamaa, Wesleyan’s Black Student Union, students took part in a plethora of events that celebrated black life, experiences and culture.

This year events centered around the theme, “Freedom is a Constant Struggle,” highlighting the many years of oppression people of color faced in the United States. Events included a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a student of color art show, a leadership conference, a Black History Month formal and much more.

While students are away on Winter Recess, Wesleyan University received a few inches of snow Jan. 6, 2017.

Local artist Pierre Sylvain recently painted a portrait of Abraham Adzenyah MA ’79, master drummer and adjunct professor of music, emeritus. The painting is hung inside the Abraham Adzenyah Rehearsal Hall at Wesleyan University. Adzenyah taught West African drumming and dance at Wesleyan for 46 years.

Sylvain first met Adzenyah 20 years ago, and painting his portrait gave them a chance to reconnect.

“The painting was truly inspired by him and the generous person he is. I felt his spirit coming out of my brush strokes,” Sylvain said.
