Imagine a young man blessed with many God-given talents, one of which was the gift of music. He felt the allure of the music, but this music scene pulled him from what he was taught as a young child into a world far away from the Divine Musician. Imagine that young man continuing in that scene until adulthood. Imagine a life filled with sad consequences and wandering.

Thanksgiving Break is just around the corner, and the freshman you dropped off at college a few months ago is coming home. It’s the first big holiday, and you couldn’t be more excited. It’s going to be amazing, and everything will be exactly like it was before your son or daughter went to college, right?
Homecoming was a great success. It was wonderful to see so many alumni of all ages enjoying the Trevecca community. Your alumni board represented you and worked diligently to make everyone feel welcome.
As Trevecca’s student population grows, it is becoming more and more important for students to communicate with their professors well. The methods, timing and attitude students have when it comes to communication greatly affects how well professor and student interactions go.

For the Stocks family, Homecoming at Trevecca isn’t just a tradition. It’s part of the family legacy.
Morris and Cindy Stocks both attended and graduated from Trevecca, Morris in 1977 and Cindy in 1981. For Morris, Trevecca was an obvious choice; his parents, Joyce and M.H., were Trevecca graduates, as were his three sisters. While Cindy was the first of her family to come to Trevecca, her sister followed a few years later.
The legacy didn’t end there.
Homecoming at Trevecca is one of the most anticipated events of my year. Each year, I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and professors during that nostalgic weekend on Trevecca’s campus.
I especially look forward to the basketball games. They take me back to my days as a Moore Maniac, which is how I’m sure most people would remember me. As a student, it was intoxicating when the excitement and adrenaline would fill the air of the gym and it became my responsibility to stand and be loud in my best efforts to sway the game in the way of our Trojans! I loved those days of cheering on the Trojans. It’s been my honor to introduce my wife to Trevecca—and my memories of my days as a student—over the last few years during the annual Homecoming celebration. I've been able to show her the place and people who had a heavy hand in shaping me into the man I am today.
