As part of an opportunity to bring new programs to Maryville College, the Clayton Center for the Arts is hosting the Southern Circuit of Independent Films for the 2017 season. This is a great opportunity for both the Maryville College and the Clayton Center, as it gives students and the community the chance to see films that are not shown anywhere else close to Maryville. The Southern Circuit of Independent Films is provided and coordinated by the South Arts group, a nonprofit Regional Arts Organization located in Atlanta, Ga.

The group’s mission statement stands to “strengthen the South through advancing excellence in the arts, connecting the arts to key state and national...

Being a student athlete is no easy feat, especially at an institution as rigorous as Maryville College. To be a senior student athlete at MC is to show an extreme dedication to both academics and sports.     To Kayla Weakley, captain of the cheerleading team and four year team member, being an MC senior athlete is the best way to make an impact.     “I’ve grown so much through cheerleading. It’s been a part of me and made me into the person I am today,” Weakley said. “Someone’s always going to be looking up to you as a senior and as an athlete, and I think that’s a huge reason to be an athlete— to be a role model.”     Being an athlete from high school to college is a transition that can be difficult, yet rewarding. The responsibilities that come with...

On Oct. 6, the Maryville College Theatre Department will open its new show, “Speak Low if You Speak Love.” Conceived and directed by Dr. Heather McMahon, the show is comprised of scenes and songs from Shakespeare’s popular plays “Romeo and Juliet” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” With a strict timeline of only five weeks, McMahon said she knew that a traditional full-length play was not an option. “Taking on a full-length play this semester wouldn’t have worked, so I created a script that uses some of the best of Shakespeare’s best known plays: Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream so that students get to work with the language and develop characters,” McMahon said. As with any production, rehearsal space is intricate and fosters the show, and with any Shakespeare production there is an extra added level of...

Current MC students appreciate the donors behind their scholarships

As this school year comes to a close, most seniors are already looking forward. Future jobs, graduate school and freedom from homework are all possibilities to which Maryville College seniors can look forward, but one possibility some students overlook is giving back. It’s hard to imagine giving back to a school from which one just graduated, but that’s what senior Rebecca Glenn is already doing. Glenn, a business management major and member of the equestrian team, has started one of the more unique forms of giving; she’s opened a life insurance policy with Maryville College as the beneficiary. “Basically how it works is I make payments to the plan, and then eventually Maryville will receive the money,” Glenn said. “It’s a different way of giving.” Glenn’s method of planned giving isn’t a new idea, though. Many people set up...
