Nana and Poppaw’s Great Homecoming Adventure – from Don Hastings

Posted by Trevecca News on Oct 15, 2014 11:22:41 AM

It’s common knowledge that molding and influencing children must start at a very early age. So that’s exactly what my wife and I decided to do with our grandchildren. As each one turned 7, they joined us in on our annual Homecoming adventure to our Alma Mater, Trevecca Nazarene University, in Nashville.

We had very few rules— chocolate cookies for breakfast, no set bedtime, and having fun was a must. Our goal for this trip was to encourage them to attend Trevecca when it came time to choosing a college.

Something to Think About - from Don Hastings

Posted by Trevecca News on Sep 17, 2014 10:32:36 AM

When I was a student at Trevecca, there was a program on the radio sponsored by a local company—a funeral home, I believe—called “Something to Think About.” I always listened because of the catchy title, so today, I thought I’d borrow it myself.

Something to Think About:

  1. Among the “50 Most Affordable Christian Colleges in the U.S.,” Trevecca Nazarene University was recently listed as #13. (Full list here.)
  2. Trevecca is ranked #15 among the fastest growing universities with doctoral programs. It’s nice when others recognize Trevecca’s attempt to make it affordable while also being academically strong.
  3. As alumni, all of us know that there is value at Trevecca that cannot be quantified.
  4. This year, Trevecca has set new enrollment records for both incoming freshmen and total traditional undergraduate students. (More here.)
  5. Parents will sacrifice, save money, and be inconvenienced to send their elementary children to a faith-based school through high school, but get this…
  6. 96% of evangelical Christians never think about sending their children to a Christian university.

So I read a list on Facebook of the best… well, you name it. One list I recently came across shared the Best Christian Universities. I’m not sure what yardstick they were using to measure colleges against, but for me, the following list came to mind.

The Best Christian University should…

Belle, Bill, and Maureen – from Don Hastings

Posted by Trevecca News on Jul 21, 2014 4:17:15 PM

Strange title, huh? These three names have much significance in my life. The first is the town where I grew up, the second is my father, and the third is my mother: all three significant because that's where my legacy began. My worldview began to take shape thanks to these three names.

As I stood in line with administrators, faculty, trustees, and graduates, waiting for the signal to start the processional for this special day’s events, I noticed that everyone around was smiling.
