Graduation is quickly approaching. (FYI: It's set for 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 7.) No matter what degree you're getting, successfully completing it is an occasion that's worthy of a little celebration.
I recently read through the Treveccan and found myself amazed and filled with pride when I noticed what an amazing difference our TNU alumni are making in our world. From beekeeping to the political arena, the Trevecca experience has influenced our alumni to continue the upward trajectory of their lives. We are continuing to build legacies.
After all the applications, essays, and careful consideration, you’ve been accepted to several universities and made the big decision about where to go to college. So what do you do now?
When Chris Elliott graduates next month with an exercise science degree and a concentration in athletic training, he’ll leave a lasting mark on Trevecca.
May 1 is widely regarded as College Decision Day. For many colleges and universities, May 1 is often the deadline for students to make deposits to attend the college of their choice.
Tammy Bryant dreamed of pursuing a doctoral degree, but it did not come about until divine intervention led her to Trevecca.
It seems like just yesterday that you dropped your student off at college, helped decorate his or her dorm room, and waved good-bye. But now, your child's first year of college is drawing to a close. In just a few weeks, you’ll be packing up that dorm room moving your student—and all his or her stuff—home.
Have you ever had a conversation with a 13-year-old? Interesting, isn’t it? So the question comes to mind, How do you guide a child from age 13 to 30 and keep him or her in a Christ-centered lifestyle? Right in the middle of that span of time comes the tipping point: age 18!
I was talking to an investment client of mine the other day and the subject of our children came up. I spoke about my children and how proud I am of them. His words about his children caused me to stop and think about influence. He said, “You know, we raised our children to do the right thing and to live a good life, but after they came out of college, they became cynical, questioning everything we taught them, walking away from the teachings of their upbringing.” Now, I’m not going to say that doesn’t happen at Trevecca – because you and I know cynicism has no boundaries. But what I will say at Trevecca those questions are answered by professors who care about the student and desire to seek Divine guidance for answers.
I have a friend named Kaleb. He’s nine. He attends the church where I attend, and we’ve become buddies. His family situation is dysfunctional, to say the least. Recently, his MeMaw was taken to the hospital where she later died. Just a few months earlier, his Poppaw went to the hospital where he later died.
