Message from the President

Celebrating a communitywide culture of mentoring.

SamhatOne of my favorite things about Wofford College is the communitywide culture of mentoring. Trust, respect and a shared commitment to the trans-formational impact of a liberal arts education lie at the heart of these relationships, and Wofford people have mentored, guided, advised, coached and counseled each other for 162 years. This issue of Wofford Today looks at some of those relationships, both those inherent to the Wofford experience and others, such as the Whetsell Fellowship (see page 24), that have been developed intentionally to support student growth and transformation. 

We celebrate those relationships and the addition of a new class of Terriers who already are making friends and finding the resources they need to navigate college. We also celebrate a record-breaking number of visitors to our campus this summer during training camp for the NFL’s Carolina Panthers; the dedication and opening of the Stewart H. Johnson Greek Village; and the topping out ceremonies for the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts and the Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium.

Wofford’s community becomes more dynamic with each new student and member of the faculty and staff. We welcome these new voices and new perspectives because they challenge us and keep us searching for ways to improve the Wofford experience for everyone. We especially extend a warm welcome to our new provost, Dr. Mike Sosulski (see page 8). Please introduce yourself to him next time you're on campus. He’s eager to meet alumni and friends of the college and to learn more about this warm and vibrant place.

Go, Terriers!
