Sexual Assault Awareness Month

By: Princess Jones April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and Trevecca's new Title IX official is hoping to bring more awareness to campus to increase conversations about sexual assault. “I think sexual assault is a taboo topic at any college campuses. The reason why is because college students don’t want to think of themselves in an unsafe environment. It’s a lot easier to ignore the problem and pretend that it doesn’t exist. It’s a much more prevalent issue than people realize it is and so, anyway we can bring more awareness to it can help survivors,” said Jamie Cathcart, who joined Trevecca this fall as the Title IX Compliance and Investigator Title IX is federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It also requires schools to address sexua...

Hunter Newman, former professional baseball player, back at TNU

By: Andrew Preston It was a Wednesday evening former Trojan baseball player and current Trevecca student Hunter Newman will never forget. Newman answered his ringing cell phone only to realize the St. Louis Cardinals were on the other end.

I Am Sexual Chapel

The idea for this exclusive chapel came about after university chaplain and assistant professor of Christian worship Shawna Gaines spoke with LGBTQ students on campus. “It came about from conversations with students on campus and how they find their place in the Christian community here,” said Gaines. University president Dan Boone will open the chapel with a few words of introduction. The chapel will feature junior Dylan Green and the director of Equip Ministries Peter Valk. Following the service students can gather in the fireside room in CLCS to ask Green or Valk questions. These conversations about sexuality aren’t so much about the issue at hand but caring for th...
