Freshman starts workout class open to everyone

By Blake Stewart

When Peyton Williams got to college, she realized how hard it can be to find time to exercise.  Her solution? She started a Tabata class that meets weekly on campus.

“When I started my health and wellness class at Trevecca, I realized how hard it was to work-out during college,” she said. “I asked the girls on my floor in the dorms if they worked out, they all said ‘no’ because of their phobias of the gym. I wanted to start an exercise group that was judgement free.”

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.”
