We’ve seen you: reading while sitting in the car rider pick-up line at your son’s school. Leading out in that big project at work, then spending your lunch break finishing up that assignment. Late nights, early mornings and long commutes followed by work, church, school programs and homework.
It's March 14, which means today is Pi Day! Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). It's observed on March 14 (or 3/14) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. Originally defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, Pi now has various equivalent definitions and appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics.
It’s AmeriCorps Week, and we’re celebrating Trevecca’s VISTA members. Our VISTA members—Volunteers in Service to America—serve with the Trevecca Urban Farm and the J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice, seeking to find ways the University could better serve the community.
Study abroad opportunities are available to Trevecca’s traditional undergraduate students—and it’s something senior Charles Anderson wished more students knew about.
Choosing a college can be a bit stressful. As a high school senior, you’re likely full of questions. What are the professors like? What do the dorms look like? How will I pay for college? What will it be like? And of course, one of the most important questions of all: are there any good coffee shops on campus? (The answer of course, is yes.)
For some, it may come as a surprise that Trevecca Nazarene University isn’t the only college to sit upon this hill. Before the University—then Trevecca Nazarene College—moved to the Murfreesboro Road location in 1935, Trevecca’s current campus was home to Walden University, one of many first-generation institutions aimed at providing education to freed slaves.
Engineers make our world work—which is why the National Society of Engineers has set aside this week as National Engineers Week. And Trevecca has a lot to celebrate with the recent launch of the University’s electrical and computer engineering program.
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 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.
