From the Archives: Formation of Student Government

Many Trevecca students over the years have taken time out of their busy schedules for extracurricular activities, campus clubs and organizations. Since 1941, Trevecca’s student government has been an important part of the campus community. There was a delay on the formation of any sort of student government for several years due to administration decisions. C.E. Hardy, Trevecca’s second president, often spoke of the seriousness of student discipline. The Trevecca Story: 75 Years of Christian S

From the Archives: Trevecca’s Student Publications

According to a Trevecca history, A Vine of God’s Own Planting, The Darda is the official yearbook of the University and has been published since 1924, except for several years during the Great Depression.

Reflections on Israel

Over spring break, a team of Trevecca Nazarene University media arts and religion students traveled to Israel. While overseas, the media arts team, led by Professor Seth Conley, was charged with the task of creating a documentary called Your Kingdom Come.

Milestones: Reflecting on senior year

Today I counted, and there are exactly 38 days until Trevecca’s commencement ceremony. On May 6, I will be receiving my diploma, the degree that I have worked toward for four years. It is hard to believe that those years are already coming to an end. As a student worker for the Department of Communication Studies, I was working in Tidwell last week.

Chapel is a large part of the Trevecca experience, with services twice, sometimes three times a week throughout the University’s history.

Former president Homer J. Adams was a proponent of

Milestones: 11 days till graduation

One thing you don’t understand when you start college is the sheer amount of growth you’re about to experience.

Trevecca has helped to steward that in me. I am so incredibly grateful for the friendships I’ve found at

Walk into Brooke Maschmeier’s office in Trevecca’s Wakefield Fine Arts building, and you’re sure to notice the wall of signatures. Some are written neatly; others boldly. A few even include advice, a joke or a drawing. In Trevecca’s Department of Music, it’s long been a tradition that each music major signs the wall after completing his or her senior recital.
