Over the years, Trevecca students have made many memories at Trevecca’s cafeteria. Since we just celebrated Thanksgiving last week, we remember the significance—both symbolic and literal—of coming to the table with friends and family. As students and faculty share life with one another around the table, friendships are made, and, sometimes, legends are born. Take the Great Tray Caper of 1999, for example, when students from Trevecca and Mount Vernon Nazarene University stole the trays from their respective cafeterias, met halfway, and swapped them.

Enjoying Thanksgiving when your plate is full

Posted by Trevecca on Nov 18, 2016 6:23:54 PM

Thanksgiving break is here! For students working full time, this short break meant for rest and family can often feel like nothing more than a few extra days to catch up on homework. Assignments are still weighing on your shoulders to the point that you’re considering how you might make a business model around your grandma’s homemade pies, or you’re contemplating the psychological factors that impacted your great aunt’s need to be in control of the kitchen, or maybe you’re beginning to see the theological symbolism manifested in the inedibility of raw cookie dough.

We all know about the (false) stereotypes associated “Georgia girls” and “Benson boys” at Trevecca, but have you ever wondered why the girl’s dorms at Trevecca are named after states, or how dorm life has changed over the decades? The answer to the first is actually quite simple: Tennessee and Georgia, both constructed in 1966, are named for the Southeast Education Zone that sponsored the buildings. Johnson Hall, however, was named after a special woman named Sadie Agnew Johnson, who was a mathematics professor from 1928-1948.
