Men’s Basketball Senior Season

Men’s Basketball Senior Season

The Tennessee State University Men’s Basketball team has four graduating seniors this season. With only 10 games left, that means it is also the countdown to the end of four collegiate basketball careers. TSU Men’s Basketball seniors are Delano Spencer, Ken’Darrius Hamilton, A.C Reid and Darreon Reddick.

“Our seniors serve as leaders to the team because they are the ones with the most experience and have been here the longest. That means every game this season, I step onto the court thinking I am going to play for them because this is their last season they can wear this jersey”, said Thomas Davis, a sophomore from Nashville, Tennessee.

The team is currently 8-11 overall and 3-5 in conference. In preseason play, the Tigers fell to No.16 Purdue University and faced a one-point loss against Texas University.

In conference, the team had a rough start losing to University of Tennessee at Martin. However, the Tigers bounced back immediately earning their first conference victory against Southeast Missouri University, followed by another victory against Jacksonville State University.

“It has been a pleasure wearing this Tennessee State University basketball jersey these last four years. This program has made me a better person by teaching me how to work hard and be consistent everyday. Now as a senior, I have the chance to lead by example and show the new guys how to work hard and put in extra work outside of practice”, Darreon Reddick stated, a senior from Belleville, Illinois.

They play Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville on January 25th, followed by Eastern Illinois University on January 27th, both at 7:30 in Gentry Center. The Senior Night game will occur on February 17th at 7:30pm in which they will acknowledge the four graduating seniors.

How to be Green

How to be Green

What are the first three things that pop into your head when you think about college? Perhaps studying, football games, and top ramen come to mind. Of course academics and having a booming social life are some of the main priorities for a college student, right?

The environment is the least of a college student’s concern. So why would any student care about the smaller things such as turning the lights off when no one is in the room or recycling?

No matter what your priorities are or what you care about, there are an infinite amount of small changes that any college student can implement into their daily routine, each being environmentally friendly and beneficial for the planet altogether. Here are 5 ways to get started:

  1. Use a reusable water bottle – Purchasing a reusable water bottle not only saves money, but it is convenient with water fountains being located all over campus.
  2. Take notes electronically – Approximately four million trees are cut down a year for paper production alone.
  3. Turn off the faucet when you are not using it – The average American wastes four gallons of water when running the water while brushing their teeth.
  4. Walk as much as possible – Why stress about trying to find parking before class, when walking is good exercise and more efficient.
  5. RECYCLE.

Small changes in your everyday life can go a long way to protect the future. You never know how a simple action can influence everyone. So why not try and make an impact, no matter the size. It is the little things that will be beneficial with protecting the planet in the long run.

Tennessee State University Brings the Business to Campus

Tennessee State University Brings the Business to Campus

On Tennessee State University’s campus, the Career Development Center is well known for their events that aid in networking and helping students and alumni alike to branch out and find career opportunities they never knew were available. This specific event coming up, the Internship Fair, focuses on bridging the gap between future employees and employers. The event assists former and current students with job preparation as well as broadening their ideas of what jobs their chosen majors can truly coincide with.

With more and more students getting prepared for graduation, the working world can be a total culture shock. The different mindset that is required in to maintain a lucrative and healthy working environment is definitely something the Career Development Center helps these students with every day.

A current Career Development Center student, William Taylor, was asked how he thought the fair would transpire and how he feels it would provide Tennessee State University students with guidance for their futures. His response was:

“I believe that the fall Career Fair has created enough buzz to attract a large amount of students to the internship fair this spring. This opportunity allows all majors to connect to professionals who are looking for students just like them, and will create mutual professional relationships and highlight the determination that students have to be successful. The career center does an excellent job of bridging the gap between the students and the employers, as they know this event is beneficial to both parties. Many students are not aware of the companies that are literally seeking them so the CDC puts employers on a platform to be seen by students. As a result, revenue and partnerships are granted to hard working interns and future employees.”

Overall, the campus is buzzing with excitement, and getting their best professional attire ready to charm and impress their future employers with their well-rounded knowledge of their desired career. For those interested in attending, the Internship Fair will take place on February 15th, 2018 from 2:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. and you can get more information at the Career Development Center located in the Student Success Center, on the third floor.
