Sigma Tau Delta is an International English Honors Society at Maryville College. Members of this society share the common goal of spreading literature on campus and teaching people about the beauty of English.

MC senior steps into the world of student teaching and embraces every moment

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

Each day is a new adventure. Each day is a new obstacle. Each child is precious. Each kid deserves the chance to succeed. As a future teacher, I had no idea just how true each of these statements would turn out to be.  I believed in each and every one of them, but the reality does not always sink in until it’s staring you in the face. Since entering Maryville College, I knew that I wanted to teach. I knew that teaching was something that I needed to do for me, but I had to admit it to myself first. I knew that I fully believe in the future of all children and the effort that they put in. I knew that each child has the capability to become whatever it is that he or she wants to be,...

Celebrating differences this month and always

Posted by on Feb 22, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

Being proud of who you are is never a bad thing. In this day and age, it can be the difference between self-acceptance and hating yourself for who you are. In the month of February, Americans across the board celebrate Black History Month and black heritage. There has been a rich history with black Americans, but now, more than ever, is the time to celebrate people of color for their souls and who they are. There are many great individuals that the common American has heard of—and loves. For example, Marin Luther King Jr., Malcom X and even Rosa Parks all have an influence on what we have shaped America to be. At Maryville College, we highlight diversity and celebrate the fact that we are all so vastly different. Even though one of those differences is skin color, the...

The time is approaching. The hot Sunday in May will be upon us in the blink of an eye. We will march across the grass to our seats as the sun beats down upon us. It is coming faster than we realize, and soon enough, it will be our time to walk across the stage at the Maryville College Commencement.

These are the memories that students...

Students lacking transportation struggle at MC

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016 in News | 0 comments

Transportation is key, or so they say.  In college, it is all about where something is happening, but it can be hard to get to where you need if you have no means of transportation. At Maryville College, there is a population of students that does not have cars.  As adults, there are times where we need to get places that aren’t always within walking Junior Bryce Redaja explained what it can be like for those who do not have a car.  Redaja is from Phoenix, AZ and lives on campus at Maryville College.  According to Redaja, it would be too far and too expensive for him to drive it to campus, so he does without. Redaja is active on campus through different organizations and the baseball team. Though he has many good friends, Redaja said that it can...
