SGA newsletter

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in News | 0 comments

As students begin completing projects, papers and theses, the Student Government Association (SGA) has been prepping to provide students with opportunities to relieve stress. The Campus Life Committee has been hard at work, under the leadership of Junior Class President Allison Aguado and Junior Class Vice-President Ariel Kaylor, preparing stress balls to be distributed during the biannual finals breakfast. In addition, therapy dogs are planned to make an appearance as those are always well received by our students. In addition, Aguado took notes during the fireside chat with Dean Tucker and Dean Wells. The biggest topic of discussion was the implementation of May term and how it will affect the class of 2019 specifically. The question being: How will replacing J-Term effect juniors who are still required to complete an ethics course next year? Many students have traditionally taken...

Perspectives on Scholarship

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Features, Perspectives | 0 comments

This article was written by The Keepers. What is the Maryville College Covenant? “As an academic mentor, the covenant is a part of my everyday life,” said Brinley Knowles Class of 2020. Whether I am leading a group study or working in Cooper Success Center, it has to do with the way I help the people that I help… It (the Maryville College Covenant) is one of the big reasons that I chose this school. I knew it would make the students here different, and I could tell that when I came on this campus.” The Keepers of the Covenant seek to promote awareness and conversation in regards to the covenant and its three tenants: Scholarship, Respect and Integrity. Through internal dialog (on a personal and community level), we hope to ensure that we are aware of and living...

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Feature Slider, News | 0 comments

Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature (TISL) has been one of Maryville College’s up-and-coming annual events. Students participate in Appellate Moot Court Collegiate Challenge (AMC3),  the Legislature, Lobbying, and media, where they compete with colleges and universities from all across Tennessee. Maryville’s AMC3 team included students Jacob Williams, Ciara Humphrey, Beau Branton and Carson Clark. The legislature participants were Josh Anderson as Chief Clerk of Senate and Tristan Leslie as a Senator. I was the lobbying CEO for the Disability and Diversity firm. Nichole Kitts was involved in Media. “Law is something that’s always been interesting to me as a potential career choice, so I decided it’d be worth it to see if it was still something I was interested in after doing a ‘trial run,’” Ciara Humphrey said. TISL is a good way to find out whether or not you...

Hometown hike: coming back to your first landscape

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Feature Slider, Sports | 0 comments

“You can’t go home again” is a phrase not often associated with the commercial, feel- good of the holidays, and for good reason. Why sell the idea that it’s hard to leave a place and come back, only to see it changed or unchanged? I think the idea of coming home is so hard to understand because it’s unique to each person’s experience. To some, it’s tied to memories, family or friends. For me, it’s tied to landscape. This past Thanksgiving, I went home again and experienced the landscape around which I grew up. This time, though, I experienced it as a blend of both new and of memory. My hometown is Signal Mountain, Tennessee, and I go back during the holidays to enjoy good food, family and friends. Each time I come home, stores have come and gone,...

Bittersweet Goodbyes

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Feature Slider, News | 0 comments

In the coming days, Maryville College will say goodbye to two of its sweetest staff. After years of service to this acclaimed academic institution, both Ms. Mary Anne Frost, the administrative assistant for the division of behavioral sciences, and Mrs. Carolyn Potter, the administrative assistant for the division of humanities, are retiring. These ladies  are undeniably so much more than their long titles afford. First, I visited Mrs. Carolyn Potter and, while she was obviously busy, she had no hesitation in meeting with me. Her calm Aussie accent added to a soothing presence that has happily provided counsel to students and colleagues alike in past years. There was also an apparent uniqueness within the woman, and soon it was clear that her kind exterior was not the only characteristic deserving recognition. Potter is also one of the most multifaceted...
