The Trump Era: one year in

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

I’ve always been intensely patriotic. Growing up, I would sing “This Land is Your Land” and “God Bless the USA” at the top of my lungs. I’ve always loved the American values of opportunity, liberty, justice and equality. It’s the idea of the American Dream where anyone could achieve their dreams through persistence and hard work. I loved that the United States was a place that everyone wanted to come to to seek a better life and better opportunities....

MC finals survival guide

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

It is that time of year again. . . dun dun na du. Maryville College Finals week. The week that could make or break your semester in just two hours of testing. Many students take this week to bulk up on their caffeine intake and save the Netflix binge watching for the week after. Some just continue with their everyday schedules. Others can skip the whole finals week altogether. There are those professors who just don’t believe in finals,...

A Maryville Christmas

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment | 0 comments

On Dec. 5 at 7p.m., the MC Division of Fine Arts hosted a performance of “A Maryville Christmas.” This is the second year that this performance was put on by the entire Fine Arts Division. In previous years, each department in the division would put on their own separate performances, keeping the proceeds from those shows for their individual departments. But now, perhaps moved by the spirit of the holidays, the whole division works together to create one massive,...

A match made in heaven: King Gizzard and Mild High Club

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment | 0 comments

This new release is one of my most recent favorites to hit the shelves. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard has partnered with Mild High Club to create “Sketches with Brunswick East.” This could be considered one of King Gizzard’s tamer albums. This is King Gizzard’s fourth release this year, and eleventh studio album. As an up-and-coming indie band, the group has been riding the wave of popularity following the festival season this past summer. Even though this is...

A rose by any other name… is still questionable tax reform

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

There has been a lot of recent discussion about the Republican’s new tax bill, the largest overhaul to tax reform in almost 30 years, which passed in the House of Representatives earlier this month. As a student, I have found the controversy surrounding the proposed cuts to loan tax deductions, among other changes to tuition credits, troubling. However, my major is in history and secondary education, not economics, so I found myself doing a rather extensive amount of reading...

New Mural on Court Street

Posted by on Nov 22, 2017 in Features, Perspectives | 0 comments

A new mural of comic book superheroes has been painted on a wall directly across the street from campus at the comic book shop The Golden Age, 1942. At the foreground, the mural features several superheroes from different comics, many of which are easily recognizable. The background is a landscape with fields, mountains and a big blue sky. All in all, there’s nothing out of the ordinary about it except for the fact that it is new. Some people...

Dr. Jay Clark, Adjunct Professor of Biology at Maryville College, recently launched his election campaign for state representative of the 8th district of Tennessee in the 2018 election.

The Golden Age?

Posted by on Nov 22, 2017 in Feature Slider, Features, Perspectives | 0 comments

The 20-minute walk from Beeson Village to downtown Maryville is an uneventful stretch made    tolerable by the occasional greetings of friends passing by and the catcalls of strangers shouted from grimy truck windows. I pick up trash as I go, challenging myself to find more than enough to hold in  a hand. I make my own excitement by seeing if I can    sneak my findings into someone’s recycling bin before someone calls me out on it. The...

Miles to go before I sleep: a reflection of the 2017 cross country season

Posted by on Nov 22, 2017 in Feature Slider, Features, Sports | 0 comments

Cross country takes place at an interesting time of year. We begin our season by running with minimal clothing and conclude our season in layers. “Season” is an interesting term in the running community. Traditionally, winter is the indoor track season, followed by outdoor track in the spring. Because Maryville College does not have a track team, spring means speed to prepare the runner for the next six months. Summer means heavy mileage for building the stamina and endurance...
