A new semester on campus brings more than new beginnings and new classes; it also welcomes new faces. One of those faces is Katelyn Sharpes who recently joined the Center of Student Development as the new director of career services. Working in the Bud Robinson Building, Sharpes is dedicated to connecting students with jobs and helping them feel equipped to transition to life after college.
No matter what the degree, going back to school as an adult isn’t always easy. A full-time job, family time and finding time for all the amazing things that make your life special can be difficult to balance with homework, papers and reading assignments. But earning your degree is worth it.
In 2019, you resolved to go back to school—to finish that degree you started or earn a master’s degree. And now, we’re barely a week into 2019 and that confidence you felt is beginning to fade.
With an estimated 25,000 electrical and computer jobs available each year, but only 20,000 degrees granted in the same time period, Trevecca announced in the fall a new engineering program to provide its students the opportunity to be a part of a growing career field. The person to lead the new program is Dr. David Wu.
With less than a week until Christmas, it can feel like your to-do list is getting longer while your Christmas spirit begins to falter. Christmas is a season of joy and celebration, but the additional responsibilities, family get-togethers and the last-minute rush of gift-buying and giving can put a strain on your relationships and emotions as well as your finances.
It seems like everyone gets a little more nostalgic during the holiday season. Maybe it’s the lights on the Christmas tree, celebrating Advent or decorating Christmas cookies that causes the season to feel a little extra special.
Finals week has finally crept up from behind the brief reprieve of Thanksgiving break. Students everywhere on campus are scrambling to finish last-minute assignments and studying as hard as possible to keep those GPAs safe.
College can be overwhelming and difficult for the average student. For adult students considering returning to finish their degrees, it can seem almost impossible to accomplish with the busy schedules of day-to-day life. Dr. Cathy Hendon, program director of the Bachelor of Arts in management and leadership program in Trevecca’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies (SGCS), recently explained the drive behind this program, the transformation she’s seen in students’ lives, and why she thinks any adult should take advantage of this program.
The holidays can feel overwhelming for many reasons—from the busyness of the season, to catching up with relatives you haven’t seen in a long time. Plus, if you’re a high school senior, you’re probably bracing yourself for the non-stop questions from family members about your future and who you’re going to be. To help you out, we’ve outlined a game-plan for navigating these three inevitable curve balls.
As a working adult and a student, you’re used to a busy schedule. Between work, family, school and all your other responsibilities, you’ve become a pro at juggling all your responsibilities. With Thanksgiving and the holidays approaching, though, stress and anxiety may be setting in.
