Freshley:   Your First-Year Experience at Wesley

Freshley is all about helping you find your place in God’s story, at Carolina, and in Wesley.  Each week will begin with ice breakers and games to help you meet other first-years, and then the Freshley Team will lead a small group time to connect Scripture to your life as a first-year student.

Freshley is on Wednesdays, 8:00-9:30 PM, beginning August 30!
If you have a late lab, please come after.  We designed Freshley so you won't be interrupting if you come after lab.  Seriously.  We promise.  Please come.
If you can't make it on the 8/30, we would love to have you come on future weeks!

Freshley FAQ's

Check out some FAQ's about Freshley!

Will I be with the same people each week?

Depending on how many people come each week, we'll be breaking up into smaller groups so we can have good small group conversation.  The good news is you'll be in groups with different people each week so you get to meet all the Wesley First-Years.  And, the game & ice breaker time will always include everybody!

What if I come with a friend?

We will absolutely make sure you and your friend are in the same small group if that is what you would like!

Where is Freshley? 

Freshley is located in the Wesley Building at 201 E. Rosemary Street (the corner of Rosemary and Henderson Streets), just off campus, and just across the street from TRU Deli.

What if I have lab until 8:20 PM?

Come after lab!  Although you’ll miss the ice breaker, we intentionally designed the schedule so that you can make it in time for small group.  For real, you won’t be interrupting anything.  We designed it with you in mind.
