The 2004-2005 school year has begun, and the campus is alive with activity. Freshmen arrived on Friday, August 27, and registered for classes the next day. Upperclassmen returned during the weekend and registered for classes on Monday, August 30.

With the start of classes Tuesday, August 31, the campus starting settling into the routines of the school year. The Office of Career Services hosted a Career Fair in the lobby of Jernigan Student Center, and students were able to apply for jobs with on-campus offices and with community businesses and organizations. The first chapel of the year is Wednesday, September 1; in that service University Chaplain Tim Green introduced the theme for chapel this year.  On Thursday, September 2, the campus will conduct a memorial service for Robert Garrett II, the Trevecca senior who was killed in an automobile accident on August 26.

This first week of school, Welcome Week, also includes evening activities that are sponsored by the Trevecca Student Government Association.  These events are designed to help students get acquainted and build friendships.

While the final enrollment numbers will not be finalized for a few more days, the small number of empty dorm beds appears to indicate that those numbers will be good.
