By:  Susanna E Taylor

“Being in these places and seeing where history took place has been one of the biggest experiences of my life,” said Matthew Spraker, associate dean of student life and one of the trip leaders.

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.”
