Alumni

The Family Came Home to the Hill – from Don Hastings

The Trevecca Family traveled home to the Hill this month to enjoy the community who call themselves alumni and friends of Trevecca Nazarene University. As president of the Alumni Association, I attended many reunions throughout the weekend, and it was interesting to see all the “catching up” that was going on at… more

Appreciation for the Reed Memorial Tower

Today marks a special day as we dedicate this bell tower and remember Dr. Millard Reed. We, the student body of Trevecca, are grateful for this beautiful addition to our campus. While I never had the privilege to meet Dr. Reed, my father recalls his deep faith in God, his sensitive heart… more

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

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.… more

Something to Think About – from Don Hastings

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.

Belle, Bill, and Maureen – from Don Hastings

It’s Time to Say Thank You – from Mike Blankenship

Two words that express what’s in my heart: Thank you. Thank you, Trevecca, and Thank you, Trevecca alumni. Since my freshman year, Trevecca has given me opportunities that I never dreamed would come my way. Administrators, faculty, staff, and fellow students believed in me then and helped me believe in myself. That… more

We need to do this again soon – from Mike Blankenship

The Trevecca Celebration in Florida and the Trevecca Alumni and Friends Cruise shared some common features. A lot of laughter. Special memories. Friendly times around a table. Prayers prayed and testimonies given. Funds raised for scholarships. The positive story of Trevecca lives on through these unique gatherings. Something special happens when Trevecca… more

The joy of reconnecting – from Mike Blankenship

Recently I was blessed to reconnect with a friend from my Trevecca days. Years seemed to roll away as we shared joys, sorrows, challenges, friendship, and life. Our reconnecting gave me a mental vacation from the busyness of my life and uplifted my soul. I realized again that friendships we made at… more

How long has it been?

As I write this article today, I have been watching the pictures posted by Trevecca of the first week of the fall semester.  How long has it been since your first week at Trevecca? I have seen pictures of the following: folks helping students move into the dorms, parents helping get the… more
