Homecoming to Focus on Trevecca Stories

By Sidney Wiseman For Trevecca alumni, homecoming serves a special purpose—coming home to the hill. But for current students, it can be just as impactful. “I encourage students to go out and attend as many events as possible. I’m a big believer that the more connected you are to the life of the campus and the more connected you are to each other, the more meaningful all the experiences of college end up being,” said Michael Johnson, director of alumni and church engagement. For the last several years, homecoming has been referred to as “Homecoming on the Hill,” but Johnson said this year, a more specific theme emerged after he attended a conference. This year, homecoming will focus on how Trevecca makes great stories possible and instilling purple pride in all attendees. (more&helli...

Pair’a’Dice Board Games, a new club allowing students to gather and play board games on campus, was recently created and started meeting in September.

The Little Mermaid comes to Trevecca

by Bailey Basham Upwards of 50 people are helping Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid come to life on the stage in Benson Auditorium this weekend. Jeff Frame, chair of the department of communication studies and professor of dramatic arts and communication is producing the show—his 99th at Trevecca. “The tale of The Little Mermaid is a cautionary tale. A girl must give up her identity and the things that make her special in order to find love. Essentially, she chooses voicelessness in her search for belonging and for something new and exciting,” said Frame. “Our production concept involves a Bohemian look designed to reinforce the idea of wanderlust in both Ariel and Eric. This yearning in them eventually snowballs into catastrophe, and it is only through a father’s sacrifici...

By Bailey Basham A little more than 94 percent of textbook orders were filled on time this fall after the launch of a new program to include textbooks in tuition.  The higher-than-normal  5 percent unfilled rate is because of tragedy in the company that Trevecca contracts with to provide the textbooks. Trevecca contracts textbooks through Tree of Life Bookstores. Tree of Life partners with 17 other Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) member schools, according to Patrick Eckhardt, director of marketing for Tree of Life. (more…)
