MC Quick Fact

Carnegie, Memorial and Pearsons Halls

Fifty years ago, Carnegie, Memorial and Pearsons halls were rehabilitated through funding from the U.S. Housing and Finance Agency. The College received $400,000 from the agency that spring, half of which was used for hall improvements, the other half for the construction of the Margaret Bell Lloyd Residence Hall for Women.

Upcoming

The start of the Fall 2008 semester is not that far away! Fall sport athletes move into the residence halls mid-August, and first-year students move in on Aug. 20. Most upperclassmen will report to campus Aug. 24.

Convocation is scheduled for Aug. 31.

Local churches and faith communities are invited to participate in the College’s annual Church & College Picnic, scheduled for Sun., Aug. 24. The picnic is a fun way for congregations to introduce themselves, their programs and their services to students. For more information, contact Kathleen Farnham at 865.981.8217.

The entrance to Thaw Hall is being improved. The worn, front entry steps were flipped last month, and workers are now resurfacing the portico. At the bottom of the steps and leading to the CCM, a new plaza – partially funded by the Class of 2006 senior gift – is being constructed.
