Alumni won’t be at Homecoming: Events planned for current students

By Diana Leyva Jacob Alumni won't be able to come to the hill for homecoming this year.  Instead, campus officials are planning virtual events to attempt to connect with alumni in the midst of a pandemic that makes gatherings like homecoming impossible. “I think for our emotional well-being, it is important to try to capture as much of a sense of normalcy, so that's what we hope to do by sharing these virtual events,” said Michael Johnson, director of alumni and church engagement.  An online kit is available for $25, which includes access to the virtual live stream, a Trevecca mask and t-shirt, candy, and popcorn. Ten dollars from each purchase will go towards the Fund for Trevecca Scholarship. While university officials aren't allowing anyone on campus other tha...

Mr. Trevecca Cancelled, Lip Sync to replace

By Kayla Williamson The men’s Pageant titled Mr. Trevecca was due to return Feb. 21 at 7pm in Boone.

Students will sign up with their name and a song to perform on stage. “It was an idea we had last semester but just didn’t know where to put it, and so when we found out this was cancelled we still wanted a replacement event, and we wanted it to be a show where people could watch or people could participate” she said. “We already had all the staging and the lights that...

Trevecca Celebrates Black History Month

By Kayla Williamson Black History Month at Trevecca gives students the opportunity to celebrate the history of African Americans. Walden, in collaboration with Chartwells, have planned several activities for students. According to Brodrick Thomas, director of community engagement and reconciliation, Black History Month is about a bigger story, bigger than African Americans alone. “The story of African Americans is not one of just a certain group of people overcoming so much, it’s about the fact that those people overcame so much by relying on those that weren’t black,” he said. “While black people deserve to be celebrated, I think it’s also a key way of seeing the human spirit, and what does it mean to love your brother.” The first event that was meant to kick off Black History Month w...
