Friday Night Live

By: Ashley Suarez

One of SGA’s most popular events is around the corner.

Friday Night Live, a student-produced sketch comedy show, will be back with new material this weekend.

“I think it is one of the top events because students are able to see some of the fun and interesting things that have happened on campus be documented in a fun and creative way,” said Kelly Hall, social life director.

Each year a team writes new scripts for the show.  The team meets every week during the spring semester to work on the show. Anyone can pitch ideas to an SGA member and they will communicate with Kelly Hall, this year’s all-school social life director.

“We really just try to document all of the funny events and occurrences that have happened on campus throughout the school year,” said Hall. “It’s super cool to see all of the fun videos we create.”

Friday Night Live is free and open to all this Friday, March 23. Although this event is free, you must pick up a physical ticket at the SGA booth located in the Jernigan lobby during meal times. FNL will be in Benson Auditorium inside of McClurkan. There are two show times. The first show is at 6:30 p.m. and the second is at 9 p.m.

Trevecca elections begins this week

By: Joshua Michel

The Trevecca student body this week will elect the five executive positions of the student government.

On the ballot Wednesday through Friday are the positions of president, vice president, chaplain, social life director, and communications director.

ASB is the elected body of student representatives who are charged with everything from managing student activity fees, planning events on campus, and being a liaison between students and administrators.

Each spring, the student body elects the executive council after each candidate delivers a speech in chapel.

Below is a list of candidates and a quick summary of what they had to say Tuesday in chapel.

They have shown their desire to take on leadership and to have a hand in what happens on campus.”

Trevecca leaders to meet with members of the Napier and Chestnut Hill community

by Olivia Kelley

Tomorrow, Trevecca faculty and students will be heading to Napier Community Center to meet with leaders and community members from Napier and Chestnut Hill in what is being called the Trevecca Community Initiative.

The idea for the Initiative came from senior social work major Jessica Kyle after she chose to move off campus to live in the Napier community.

“I originally got the idea in a class that talks a lot about community development and awareness and Trevecca’s own community awareness,” she said. “I was tired of sitting in class and talking about these things. I wanted to get out and talk with some people about it.”

The first part of the day will be a meeting between the leadership teams from Trevecca, Napier, and Chestnut Hill to talk about what needs the community has and what Trevecca can offer, according to Kyle.  [Read more…]

The 72-Hour Film Festival, an annual event hosted by Trevecca SGA, was canceled this year because of lack of participation.

Three of the five groups that were originally registered dropped out, so SGA officials decided not to spend money on prizes, food and drinks, said Laura Beth Winchester, SGA social life director.

The two remaining groups made their films before getting word the event, originally scheduled for April 5, was canceled.
