As the baseball season came to a close on Sunday, April 22 with a 4-2 loss against Methodist, the Scots celebrated their many victories and individual team awards. Earlier in the season the team had a 26-5 record and No.17 national ranking. While the season ending is bittersweet for the seniors who are ending their student athlete careers, the team still brought home many awards for their hard work. Senior Evan Ezell won one of the highest honors with a USA South Postgraduate Scholarship. Ezell won the award, along with fellow senior Samm Chandler from Averett University, on Friday, April 20 at the USA South Spring Festival Banquet in LaGrange, Ga. “That’s a pretty exciting moment, because it’s kind of something that captivates what I’ve done here at college, which is be a student-athlete,” Ezell said in a release...

Posted by on Apr 18, 2018 in Sports | 0 comments

While running one mile can seem like a daunting process to many, running over 26 miles seems ludicrous to most people, runners or not. And yet, on April 28 in the Maryville College Woods, hundreds of ludicrous people will gather to run a 50k (31 miles), or a 100k (62 miles) or the grand race of 100 miles. The Three Sisters Ultra Festival is a big, 24 hour party of people who like to run and people who like to watch other people run. Running a loop of 3.125 miles, each runner will have the chance to pass their spectator friends who are drinking and eating while they continue onto the next loop. While it may sound like torture, the reality is that it really is one big party of people who love the outdoors and love sweating. The...

As the warm spring weather begins to bring college students out of their dorms and into their Chacos, it comes time to celebrate Maryville College’s registration as an Exercise is Medicine on Campus, EIM-OC. Starting this past fall semester, Maryville College became one of the only three colleges in Tennessee to be registered as an EIM-OC school. The Exercise is Medicine initiative is managed by the American College of Sports Medicine, and encourages primary care physicians to include exercise as a treatment plan for their patients. The EIM-OC initiative takes this further to include campuses and college students as institutions needing guidance and encouragement in treating exercise as a form of medicine. The health initiative of EIM-OC encourages students and faculty to engage in exercise on campus to improve the overall campus health and well-being. Through working together in...

Professional development, hearing the passionate and angry voices of our nation’s youth, and getting both lost and found on the Metro all encompassed a busy and enlightening trip in Washington, D.C. this weekend. For the four students in the Scots in Washington program, the quick weekend trip to D.C. was busy and showed the realities of living in the nation’s capital. Scots in Washington is a brand new sector of the already existing MC in D.C. group. MC in D.C. is a group of alumni from Maryville College who have stayed connected through a Facebook page. Hailing from many different graduating classes, the alumni range from those who have graduated over a decade ago and those who are just finishing their first year of graduate school. Of the many members of MC in D.C., the three who helped make...

That’s what she said: campus program on sexual harassment in the workplace

Posted by on Mar 7, 2018 in Feature Slider, Features | 0 comments

“That’s what she said” is a phrase people often associate with the inappropriate sex talk of a middle schooler or immature friend. Yet, it sparks the question: what really is sexual harassment, and how do we identify, act on and eliminate it from our lives and workplaces? In light of the recent #MeToo movement and the themes of the recent school production of “9 to 5: The Musical,” the college had a sexual harassment seminar on Feb. 26 that was geared towards senior women preparing to enter the professional workplace setting. Aimed towards identifying and acting on sexual harassment, the attendees and professors involved came together to share thoughts, opinions and stances on sexual harassment and how to stop it. The theatre department’s spring musical, “9 to 5: The Musical,” was about three women in the late ‘70s stuck...
