    Administrators and professors from Wesley Seminary visited Southern Wesleyan University in November, speaking in classes and meeting with Religion majors in one-on-one and group settings. Dr. Mike Tapper, chair of Southern Wesleyan’s Division of Religion, is enthusiastic about the visit and of creating stronger ties with Wesley Seminary. Tapper commented that Wesley Seminary and Asbury Theological Seminary are the division’s primary “on-ramps” for majors, through its seminary “fast-track,” the 3+1 and CoVo (CoVocational) programs.
