For anyone who walked the hallowed grounds of Tougaloo College post-2001, "What's Up Wednesday" holds a special place in our hearts. It's the weekly encore to the Wednesday Assemblies, aka Chapel, a glimpse into the inner workings of the college. Chapel, a cornerstone of the Tougaloo College experience, delved into everything from Academic Affairs to Religious Emphasis.
These sacred gatherings weren't just about routine; they were about nurturing the legacy, sharing historical wisdom, and fostering a deep connection to Tougaloo's spirit of academic excellence. "What's Up Wednesday" was the bridge that linked students to The Yard, where creativity and community thrived beyond the classroom.
The music spun by our DJs set the rhythm, and The Yard came alive with dance, strolls, and even the rush to make it to class on time because no one wanted to say goodbye to "What's Up Wednesday." Yet, we all knew that it would be waiting for us, same time, same place, next week. It's more than a shirt; it's a testament to the enduring spirit of Tougaloo College.
