The 30th Annual Golf Tournament benefiting student scholarships took place June 10 at Brook-Lea Country Club. In spite of the rain, golfers had an amazing day on the links with friends.

Open House for Adult and Graduate Programs

On June 5, Roberts Wesleyan College hosted their second Adult and Graduate Education open house with nearly 100 perspective students in attendance. This event highlighted more than 15 programs from the following disciplines: business, health administration, healthcare informatics administration, nursing, school psychology and school counseling, social work, and teacher education. Program directors, faculty members, admissions staff, alumni and student services were all on hand, as a team, to answer questions and showcase why Roberts is Higher Education with a Higher Purpose. This new format, designed to provide a “one-stop-shop” experience for busy perspective adult and graduate students, generated a lot of energy and excitement around the adult and graduate programs offered at Roberts.

The next AGE open house is scheduled for November 7, 2013 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Howard Stowe Roberts Cultural Life Center. For more information or to register, visit www.roberts.edu/OpenHouse.

American Heart Association’s 23rd annual Heart Walk

Roberts Wesleyan College was pleased to be a primary sponsor of this community campaign designed to influence healthy eating, being physically active and ultimately improving the health of Americans.


The Perfect Union of Educational and Witty

Page12-1About 20 people attended our first Marriage Monday July 15 in the Golisano Library Café to hear about establishing a lasting romance. Co-authors Carrie and Erv Starr shared from their new book, “Marriage Adventures: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life Together.” This dynamic couple inspired the listeners and answered questions submitted by the crowd. Not only did the attendees learn about unexpected adventures, celebrating the simple things and following Jesus, but they also enjoyed live music and specialty coffees (Inspirational Iced Coffee and Marriage Mochas) that helped make this a delightful and engaging event for all who attended – from newlyweds to couples married more than 25 years!
