One of our best campus events was this past Friday, Friday Night Live. FNL is our Trevecca version of SNL. Check out one of the video skits below!
Meet the students

What do you see?!?!
The picture of this dress has caused an uproar on the internet and it’s taking off like wild-fire. There have even been celebrities who have partaken in this argument over what color the dress is. Is the dress blue and black? or white and gold? I will leave that up to you to decide, but Taylor Swift says it’s blue and black and I’m not disagreeing with her, so I’m choosing blue and black. When I first saw this uproar I was really against it by even saying, “Oh, it’s just photoshopped and some funny guy is just messing with a bunch of Americans who get distracted by weird things like this.” But, I did look it up to get more details about this $80 dress, and found some different results and the picture actually has not been photoshopped. It has been found that apparently the lighting of the room you are in when you look at the dress can affect what color you see, but it is also a scientific thing. Due to the arrangement of your rods and cones in your eyes, and even sections of your brain, individuals will see different colors even when two are in the same lighting. It’s crazy to think that such a silly thing has caught our attention and we’ve already seen the parodies coming out such as this one from Sugar Shack Donuts!
What color do you think this is? Or will you eat it without even thinking about it?
I was asked to join the Team for Music City Live! about a month or so ago. I just jumped right in as the Assistant Producer. Most of what I do is more administrative: communicating with the executive team, and the rest of our team, gallons of paperwork, and organizing the little details. Music City Live! is a web based talk show that is sort of like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Trevecca students started the process of planning this new show and along the way we have gathered up a few team members from other universities in town. You can check out our website here! http://musiccity-live.com Sunday night was our first official taping for our fist episode! It was a huge success! We had performances by Rachael Nemiroff (current Trevecca student) who just released her debut EP, and a local band Wings of Apollo. If you haven’t heard them feel free to check them out on iTunes because they are both insanely talented! One of the funniest things I had to do during was help our co-host Kaylon King, who is also a current student at Trevecca, completely change her hair, makeup, and wardrobe mid show because she got hit in the face with…. Well you’re just going to have to watch and see! It was a day full of craziness as we set up the stages for the bands and got all of guests in and ready to perform, but I wouldn’t change a single second! Life is amazing. The people you meet, the ideas you have, what you can help create… the possibilities are endless.
I don’t consider myself a suspicious man. I keep my head down and my nose out of people’s business. I ask questions only when I think they are truly necessary. This, my friends, is one of those times.
What’s behind the door? (more…)
Dorm night!!! One fun part of college is dorm-wide events where all the girls get to do something together, usually in the lobby. I am not close friends will all the girls in my hall, but we are all friendly with each other and hall-wide activities are a great way to get to know them better. Tonight was cupcake decorating!! Chocolate, strawberry confetti, strawberry cheese cake, and red velvet cupcakes. Plus, gluten free ones for those (like me) that can’t eat wheat. Here is a little peak into all the fun we had.
This is my very first blog. I’m not much of a writer, but I love telling stories so this will be an adventure! To start off, let me tell you a little bit about me and how I got to Trevecca.
As you’ve probably already read in my bio I am a sophomore Business Administration and Marketing major here at Trevecca. I work in the office of Admissions so if you’re a prospective Trevecca student I might have met you on a tour, on the phone, or at Inside Trevecca Day. I’m also a Resident Assistant in the best dorm, Georgia Hall.
Trevecca has been a part of my life basically since I was born. My dad is a Nazarene pastor and growing up our church was on the Trevecca region (Southeastern US). So for the first 13 or so years of my life Trevecca was all I knew and I was just destined to come here. Right as I was about to start high school we moved from North Carolina to Ohio. Moving to Ohio allowed me to broaden my horizons a bit and start to see colleges other than Trevecca.
I have two older brothers Eric, 31, and Drew, 27.
Eric and Drew both came to Trevecca and graduated from here. Even though they are both very different, they were both hot shots when they were here. So one of the big turn offs of Trevecca for me when I was in the college decision-making process was having to live up to the Vinson name.
I applied to about 10 or 15 colleges and I got accepted to all of them. They were all private Christian Universities. I narrowed my options down to around 5 or so and then I went on my campus visits. I was hesitant as to whether or not I even wanted to tour Trevecca since I thought I already knew all there was to know about it, but I went anyway. At every university I visited I found myself thinking in the back of my head of how Trevecca was better, or what they had in comparison to the specific university.
Now I am AWFUL at making up my mind. Even just deciding where to eat for dinner is difficult for me so as you can imagine choosing where I was going to live for the next four years of my life was nearly impossible. Trevecca was my safety school. I knew I could go there and be fine, but I still didn’t want to just be “the Vinson sister.”
It was nearly the end of April of my senior year before I finally listened to that little voice in my head that was guiding me to Trevecca. I know that it was God all along telling me to come here. I do not regret my decision whatsoever! Trevecca is definitely the place where I needed to be! I love everything about it! And you couldn’t ask for a better city to be in, Nashville has it all! If you ever want to chat more about my journey here or if you’ve got any Trevecca questions, feel free to call the Admissions office and ask for me!
Joey Hutton and I both acted in The King Stag, Trevecca’s winter theatre production. He has already given his thoughts on it, but I had to add in my two cents. Here is a little movie-slide-show to share what the whole process was like. Enjoy!
It’s back to normal class schedules for us here at Trevecca, for now… Many of us students had to remember to set the alarm clocks, do the homework that we spent our days off procrastinating, and actually get out of bed. We had classes cancelled last Monday and Tuesday due to snow and ice, yet many professors were still stuck in their place of residence the rest of the week so many students didn’t have to go to classes on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday as well. But, it’s all back to normal. The craziness of college life has now picked up again and it’s time to put the noses back in our books. That is, for two more weeks at least. As crazy as it is getting back into the swing of things the students are only now starting to begin the countdown the days until spring break. It’s almost as if one week off wasn’t enough and we need more time. Spring break is fast approaching and many may not know what they’re doing yet. As the countdown begins I will put together an ideas for cheap spring break trips and post them later in the week for those who need some ideas.
Countdown: 11 days
