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.
Balancing work, family, and even a healthy spiritual life is difficult for adult and graduate students. We’ve been asking current students how they get their work done in the midst of their busy lives in order to encourage you when you have a full load.
As Thanksgiving break comes to a close, Christmas is near, and the new semester is approaching. High school students, particularly seniors, should now be getting pretty far along in their college decision process.
Congrats! You’ve almost made it through a crazy fall semester! You’ve had incredible experiences including a fantastic welcome week, cheering on various sports, amazing time and connection with the Lord through a number of events including chapel and SOMA, a great Corn Maze, an equally terrifying Haunted House, wonderful chorus, band, and orchestra performances, and an outstanding production of The Little Mermaid.
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.
Today is America Recycles Day! As Christians, we believe we are called to be stewards of God’s creation. Recycling is all about reducing waste, but there’s a reason it is the last “R” in the phrase “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” Reducing and reusing are even stronger methods of conserving the earth’s limited resources, but you don’t have to live in the woods to begin taking care of your environment. Here are seven ways to reduce waste that you can do as a college student today!
As tonight’s Faculty Research Symposium drew near, we chatted with several Trevecca Nazarene University faculty and staff members who’ll be presenting their research at the event at 7 p.m. tonight in Benson Auditorium.
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.
With Homecoming 2016 festivities already underway, we paused for a short chat with alumna Rachelle Dekker. An award-winning author, she’ll share a few thoughts about her publishing journey, writing a book series and winning the 2016 Christy Award for best young adult novel for her debut book, The Choosing.
