Message from the President

The Terriers continue to make their mark in the world, assisted by your support and encouragement

Pres-Large

After an amazing season, Wofford’s men’s basketball team finished the year with a valiant performance against the University of Arkansas in the NCAA Tournament. A win in the Southern Conference Tournament gave the Terriers outright titles to both the regular season and tournament championships, and we could not be prouder of our young men, who even now are back in the classroom and working just as hard on their studies as they did during the big dance.

Our Terriers make their mark off the court, too.

  • Wofford seniors are finalizing their postgraduate plans. Palmer Cantler ’15 has been offered a full scholarship to attend Duke Divinity School in the fall—a scholarship that includes three paid internship experiences.
  • Rachel Woodlee ’13, Wofford’s current Rhodes Scholar, is now in the Ph.D. program at Oxford University in England and was named one of the top 25 under 25 in U.S.-China relations by China Star magazine.
  • Donovan Hicks ’16 was one of 10 people recently admitted as a 2015 Public Policy and International Affairs Law Fellow at the University of California Berkeley this summer. He is currently in the running for a Harry S. Truman Scholarship as well.
  • Three students—Alexandria Arsi ’17, Richard Fields ’17 and Cole McCarty ’17—recently completed training to join the University Innovation Fellows of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), a national program that empowers student leaders to increase campus engagement with entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, design thinking and venture creation.
  • The talented students who produce the Old Gold and Black student newspaper won seven awards, including three first-place recognitions, in the 2015 South Carolina Press Association Collegiate Competition.

The work of these exceptional students—and the stories highlighted on the following pages—is made possible through your encouragement, time and financial contributions. Thank you for supporting our students and the extraordinary power of the Wofford College experience.

Go, Terriers!
