In just over a year, Maryville College will celebrate its 200 year history of ambitious social progress, bold educational advancements and ardent spiritual beginnings. This bicentennial milestone merits recognition, fanfare and even an iconic symbol representative of Maryville’s great legacy. The bicentennial logo, created by the Visual Voice design firm, attempts to combine important aspects of Maryville College in an austere, clever image. Even the tag line which is “Noble, Grand and True” is taken from the 119-year-old Alma Mater. “It’s impossible to summarize 200 years of history and impact in a logo and tagline, but I think we came pretty darn close,” said Karen Eldridge, the Maryville college alumna who spearheaded the creative project. The logo itself is inspired by the preexisting “corporate” logo which includes a minimalistic image of Anderson Hall but incorporates the dates of Maryville’s...

The Maryville College Student Government Association (SGA) has been working hard to ensure that student organizations on campus that request additional funds receive the needed funds for their upcoming events. SGA understands that unexpected fees can often be unavoidable and will work with organizations to fund them sufficiently and efficiently. Recently, SGA gave the Black Student Alliance (BSA) $2,200 to help fund the 10th Annual GLIMPSE Conference. This year, Maryville College is hosting the conference, and BSA needed additional funds to make it great. This conference highlights diversity through different multicultural students. It specifically discusses what it means to be a diverse student leader in the 21st century on a predominately white college campus or within one’s community and the struggles that confront groups like this. Maryville College BSA will be hosting this conference on November 10-11. The PRIDE...
