Students to serve throughout the community as part of ‘Nettie Day’

Students to serve throughout the community as part of ‘Nettie Day’

Posted on 10 September 2014 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Tusculum College students scrape the entrance gate at the Andrew Johnson National Cemetery to prepare it for repainting during last year's Nettie Day.

Tusculum students will be found throughout the community on Tuesday, Sept. 16, continuing one of the longest held traditions for the College.

Students will be taking part in Nettie Fowler McCormick Service Day, also known as “Nettie Day.”  Participation in “Nettie Day”  is required for all new students as part of the Tusculum Experience course, and upperclassmen from various student organizations also take part.

The service projects for the students in the past have varied  from painting playground equipment for a local school to  grilling and serving lunch at a senior-citizen apartment complex to building a bridge for a dog walk at the local human society.

“Nettie Day, which is conducted under the auspices of the Center for Civic Advancement, honors the memory and altruistic way of life of Nettie Fowler McCormick, widow of reaper inventor Cyrus McCormick, who was a 19th century supporter and advocate of Tusculum College. The McCormicks, staunch Presbyterians from Chicago, learned of Tusculum College through Tusculum graduates who attended their McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago and became donors to the Northeast Tennessee school.

Nettie McCormick is recognized as the college’s first benefactor, a term that denotes a donor whose cumulative gifts total at least $1 million to the college. Nettie McCormick funded the construction of several of Tusculum’s historic structures, including Haynes Hall, Rankin Hall, Welty-Craig Hall, Virginia Hall and McCormick Hall, which is named after the McCormick family.

McCormick Day began as a day of cleaning the campus in reflection of Nettie McCormick’s insistence on clean living environments. The day has evolved to take on a more generalized community service emphasis.

This year, Nettie Day is also part of “Orange Rush” week on campus. Activities planned ranged from career preparation sessions to intrumaral/hall war competitions  to an academic fair to live entertainment.

“Grills Gone Wild” barbecue cook-off and festival coming to campus Sept. 12-13

Posted on 26 August 2014 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Going for the hardwood smoked, tasty goodness prize, those who think they know barbecue will be on the Tusculum College campus in September for the first-ever Grills Gone Wild barbecue cook-off and festival.

The event is scheduled for September 12-13 on the Tusculum College campus. The Grills Gone Wild Barbecue Festival is organized by the Inferno Group of Harrogate, Tenn., and will feature top-flight barbecue masters competing for the $5,000 competition prize.

This is the first year for the event, and organizers hope to draw people from around the region to participate and attend the festivities. The event has previously been held in London, Ky.

Grills Gone Wild is a family-friendly event, which will include a barbecue cook-off, a car show, a 5K fundraiser run and many other activities. The event will be held in front of Pioneer Park.

The public is cautioned that professional barbecuers will not be offering samples of their barbecue, but there will be food vendors available during the Festival.

On Saturday, the car show begins at 2 p.m. and will include awards for Best of Show, Best Engine, People’s Choice and many others.  The “Run in Glow Motion” 5k Run/Walk begins at 8 p.m., with registration beginning at 6:30 p.m.  A post-race party will be held at 9:30 p.m. Registration for the race includes a gift bag with t-shirt, glow glasses and various glow products.

Other weekend activities include vendors, inflatable attractions for children, live music and a cornhole tournament.

This is a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event, where the teams will prepare their best ribs, chicken, beef brisket and pork.

Grills Gone Wild activities will be tied in to Orange Rush weekend on campus, a series of events on the Tusculum campus to encourage engagement among new students joining Tusculum as freshmen or as transfer students.

“We are very excited to blend the events of this festival with those set for Orange Rush Weekend,” said Dr.  Lisa Johnson, interim vice president for Academic Affairs. Encouraging our students to become part of the community is a big part of what the Orange Rush Weekend wants to achieve.”

For more information on the event, contact David Martin, director of facilities at Tusculum College at 423.636.7300.

Questions?  Learn who to contact on campus

Questions? Learn who to contact on campus

Posted on 11 August 2014 by eestes@tusculum.edu

“My roommate is impossible. I can’t stand to be in my room.” “I just don’t understand math and definitely not what we are studying in College Algebra.” “My ID card stopped working and I don’t know what to do.”

Hopefully, these are words that you won’t hear from your student in the coming weeks. However, if you do,  there are people on campus to help your student with any difficulty they may be facing. Tusculum encourages parents to listen to their students’ concerns and then advise them in who they should contact on campus in resolving their issues, whether it be resolving a conflict with a roommate, finding academic tutoring or obtaining assistance when they are ill. Encourage your student to try to resolve the issue on his or her own, an important step in developing independence, offering them suggestions of whom to contact on campus.

Below is a listing of various topics and whom should be contacted about those topics:

- Academic advising. For questions regarding declaring majors or changing majors, please contact the Director of Academic Advising in Room 121 of the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building. The Director of Academic Advising can also answer questions about academic requirements. Advisers are assigned as a student enters Tusculum. Students who are undecided as majors are assigned to general advisers until they decide which major to pursue, when they are assigned an adviser in that discipline.

- Accessibility for students with disabilities. Students who may need accommodations for disabilities, should contact the Academic Resource Center Counselors on the first floor of the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building.

- Arts and Lectures requirement – the Director of Academic Advising. Please see academic advising above.

- Athletics. Any issues with the College’s varsity sports should be address to the Athletic Director in Rankin Hall. Any issues with an intramural sport should be brought to the attention of the Office of Student Affairs in Niswonger Commons.

- Automobile registration. All students should have the cars they are driving on campus registered. Contact the Director of Campus Safety on the main level of the Niswonger Commons about car registration or parking questions.

- Bills and payments issues, including deferred payments. Please contact the Business Office on the first floor of McCormick Hall.

- Campus activities and club and organization information. For campus activities, please call the Student Life Coordinator for Campus Activities, whose office is in the Pioneer Gym. Club and organization questions should be directed to the Associate Dean of Students on the main level of the Niswonger Commons.

- Computer services. For computer issues, students should contact the Computer Help Desk Assistant, located on the top level of the Niswonger Commons.

- Personal counseling. For help with interpersonal issues, please contact the Campus Counselor in the Health and Wellness Center on the lower level of the Niswonger Commons.

- Financial aid. For assistance with financial aid, please contact the Director of Financial Aid in Virginia Hall on the second floor.

- Food services. For questions about dining options or concerns, please contact the Campus Dining Manger in the Niswonger Commons cafeteria.

- Grade appeals. Tusculum has a process, outlined in the College catalog, for making grading appeals. The first person to contact is the instructor for the course.

- Hometown news. If you have questions about getting news about your student in the local newspaper, please call the Office of College Communication at 423.636.7304. The office sends releases about academic honors and other student achievement and activities to hometown newspapers.

- ID cards. If a student loses a card or the magnetic strip on the back stops working, please contact the Student Life Administrative Assistant in the Office of Student Affairs on the main level of the Niswonger Commons.

- International student services. Please contact the Director of Academic Advising.

- Instructor/quality of instruction issues. The Academic Chair over that program should be contacted. Call the campus operator for contact information regarding the appropriate chair.

- Parking citation appeal. Appeals for parking tickets should be made to the Dean of Students in the Office of Student Affairs. The Motor Vehicle Operations Guide provides information about this process and can be found online under the “documents” menu on the Student Affairs Webpage.

- Paychecks. While students pick up paychecks in the Business Office, any issues regarding them need to be directed to the Director of Financial Aid in Virginia Hall.

- Physical illness or injury. Students who are ill or who have an injury may see the campus nurse in the Health and Wellness Center on the lower level of the Niswonger Commons. For an emergency or need for care at night, contact 911, the Office of Campus Safety or Student Affairs personnel.

- Roommate, residence hall issues. The Office of Student Affairs should be contacted for any issues regarding roommates, room assignments, switching rooms, etc.

- Transfer credit. Any questions or issues with transfer credit should be addressed by the Registrar’s Office on the ground level of Virginia Hall.
