In an effort to create more space for future offices in Waggoner Library, the Student Teacher Library has a new home on the third floor of Mackey.
“The best explanation is that we were short on space,” said Judy Bivens, accreditation co-director and MLIS program coordinator.
For roughly two months over the summer, offices were torn down, new offices were built, several faculty were relocated and hundreds of books were moved.
The new student library, which serves as a training space for student teachers, moved from the basement of the Waggoner library to the top floor of Mackey, where education classes can now meet.
“I really do like it. It’s convenient to have everything in the same building,” said. Samantha Newman, a junior studying elementary education. [Read more…]

Trevecca officials spent around $3 million on campus updates and repairs over the summer, but perhaps the most noticeable to returning students is the renovated coffee shop.

Along with the updates, comes a new name as well.  The former Abba Java is now Nineteen|01 in reference to the year Trevecca was founded. The $100,000 project was paid for by a donor.
Plans are underway to open a second location in Waggoner library, though an opening date hasn’t been announced yet, said Matt Toy, director of marketing and communications. The addition of this second location cost about $60,ooo.

Trevecca men’s soccer takes hard loss on Saturday against Salem International

By Andrew Preston and Conner Adams

The Trevecca Nazarene University men’s soccer team lost 3-2 Saturday night to
Salem International.
The loss was tough as their conference opponent from West Virginia eliminated them last year in the post season.
The loss puts Trevecca at 3-4 (2-2) on the year while Salem improves to 4-2 (2-1).
Coming off a dramatic comeback win against Ohio Valley University last Tuesday, Trevecca has now lost its last three matches.
After an uneventful first half Saturday, the first goal was scored by Salem player Mohamed Ali Khalaf with the assist by Samir Anzil at 52:12 in the second half.
It took Trevecca nearly 10 minutes to respond, but they scored the equalizing goal at 62:27 on a corner kick from Jordan Gilmore, that bounced off the head of one of Salem’s own players.
From there on it was all Salem.
Midfielder Javier Ruiz scored an unassisted goal along with his teammate Alejandro De la Macorra within five minutes of each other. [Read more…]

While most of the campus will be shutting down for the summer, the Trevecca Urban Farm will still be up and running all summer long.

“They come from all over,” said Environmental Projects Coordinator Jason Adkins. “Sometimes it’s larger groups like the quizzing groups or Mission Nashville. Other times they come from churches looking to help out.

There will also be several camps taking place on the urban farm as soon as the summer kicks off.

Trevecca students concerned about chemical used on campus

by Montgomery Sparrow

A Trevecca student is calling for a change in use of lawn care chemicals that could be harmful.

Jenna Daughtry, a senior social justice major, is working to raise awareness of the potential danger of using herbicides on campus with the chemical Glyphosate.

Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide, especially found in the product Round-Up. Glyphosate has been thought to be dangerous for decades, but recent studies bolster the argument that the chemical is harmful. In March 2015, 17 experts from 11 countries deemed glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

“We use it on our campus to get weeds in tree lines and fences,” said Jason Adkins, Environmental Projects Coordinator. “And I feel if we don’t have a campus wide moratorium on these chemicals, it will end up in the places where our students are sitting, in the places where we are growing food to eat, and the places where our bees forage.”
