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.
Taylor McPherson, Trevecca’s vocal coordinator, is dedicated to offering Christ-centered vocal instruction that is informed by current vocal teaching methods. When teaching in his vocal studio, McPherson says he often talks about the Christian life and how the science and art of singing reveal the glory of Christ. To get to know him a little better and find out more about his work, we asked McPherson a few questions about Trevecca, his desire to use his gifts to serve God and some insight into the modern music industry.
You’re probably familiar with the ROTC, but you may not know that Trevecca students can take part in the program. Trevecca’s ROTC program—which stands for Reserve Officers’ Training Corps—is offered through a partnership with Vanderbilt University. We recently talked with Darrell Thompson, ROTC recruiter at Vanderbilt, to learn more about the program and discuss what it truly means to be a member of ROTC.
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.
Growing up with two public school teachers as parents, Dr. Ryan Longnecker knows the importance and value of education.
Trevecca Nazarene University is home to many passionate faculty and staff. Today, we’re getting to know Dr. Alice Patterson, director of the University’s Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in leadership and professional practice program. In our conversation, Patterson shared about her love for her work, the history of the Ed.D. program and how it has grown over the years.
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.
