Bulldozers are moving earth behind the softball field making way for two new tennis courts.
Work started just before Thanksgiving on courts that will replace the 40-year-old courts that used to be located where the new parking lot between Moore, Wise and Jackson field is now located. The old courts were too damaged for students to use, and had to be removed.
Severe weather rolled through campus producing thunderstorms, heavy rain and dark skies.
Today at 1:10 p.m. Norm Robinson, head of campus security, sent an email to all faculty, staff and administrators that Trevecca was safe.
“Metro has set the Davison county severe weather siren off for southern Davidson county. TNU has NOT issued a severe weather threat. The storm is not in the campus area. We are currently ALL CLEAR!” the email said.
Trevecca will have a new athletics director next year.
Brenda Patterson, director of intercollegiate athletics at Trevecca, will finish her duties and contract through the end of June.
Trevecca is currently in the process of applying to be a NCAA Division II school. University officials said they are seeking a different direction for Trevecca athletics, said Dan Boone, university president.
“We felt for the overall good of the athletic department, that it was in the best interest to make a change,” Dan Boone, university president, said.
Finding out final exam schedules, what’s happening on campus over the weekend or what’s for lunch will soon be easier for Trevecca students.
Trevecca’s new intranet site, MyTNU, will replace the old I.C.E. page during spring break.
The site, which is home to information on student life, administration, links to student forms, final exam schedules and much more, has been uncluttered and simplified and can be accessed more easily off campus by simply visiting http://mytnu.trevecca.edu.
Deciding whether or not pornography is an issue at Trevecca is not the problem.
“I think the problem is that we don’t talk about it,” said Seth Thompson, Benson Hall RD. “I do feel like it’s an issue–I know it’s an issue on campus.”
The Benson RHA sponsored an event on Internet pornography in TSAC last month. Speaker Brent Barrowcliff, a former pornography addict, encouraged about 30 Trevecca students to be more open and transparent about porn.
