How to spend Valentine’s Day…College Style

By:  Sydney Wisman

A Trevecca couple was way ahead of the game when deciding what they were going to do for Valentine’s Day this year- and it won’t cost them a cent.

“Honestly, we will probably use a gift card that we got for Christmas,” said junior Anna Ezell, elementary education major. “It seems like the most reasonable thing to do since we are college students.”

In 2017, $18.2 billion was spent on Valentine’s Day. This special day even beats Halloween. $1.7 billion is spent on chocolate and candy and $2 billion on flowers alone.

When it’s broken down, the average person spends around $136. 57.

Let’s be honest. College students don’t have that kind of money laying around.

Jacob Williams eclipses 1,000 points for career

By Andrew Preston

Trevecca senior, Jacob Williams didn’t quite know how close he was to making history entering Saturday’s home against Cedarville.

Williams shooting over Cedarville’s Evan Kraatz on Saturday February 3, 2018.

“I knew I was under 30 (points), but I didn’t know exactly how many I needed,” Williams said after the game.

In fact, Williams learned of his accomplishment when the public address announcer told the crowd of over 800 in Trojan Fieldhouse.

“When the guy announced it is when I found out,” Williams said. “It was still a close game at that point and so I was just focused on the game and executing.”

Although the Trojans lost 85-82 in overtime, the 6-foot-3 guard says he was still fortunate to enter the record books at home.

“I’m super happy to get (1,000 points) at home,” Williams said. “I thought it was going to be an away game when I got it.”

 

Williams finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds becoming just the 41st Trojan ever to score 1,000 points in a career at Trevecca.

  “The animals don’t care that it’s Christmas,” said Jason Adkins, environmental projects coordinator.  “They still want food like every other day of the year. It’s not by principle. It’s by the nature of what we’re doing,”

After a semester of studying in a program designed to encourage musicians on campus, Madyson Williams, this year’s winning student, will perform a showcase this week.

Williams was the 2017 winner of the Trevecca School of Music and Worship Art’s Artist Development Incubator program. The program helps music student develop their artistic brand. At the end of the program, the student performs a showcase.

“It’s all been a learning experience and the showcase is just a small way to show what I’ve learned from this past semester in the program,” said Williams.

John Thompson the creator of the Incubator program, has seen Williams progress over the semesters.

“In Madyson’s case, I have had the chance to see her develop, not just over this semester, but over the last several semesters, and as the leader of Refuge, one of the school’s outreach bands, and as a worship leader in chapel. She has a sense of purpose and intentionality in her work that has come a long way this semester and I expect to really be on display during her showcase,” said Thompson.
