Trevecca freshman Rhiannon Peterson recently navigated through her first college finals experience. As Trevecca students head home for a break, we share a few excerpts from her journal.
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.

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!
