Game Nights at Waggoner

Once a month Trevecca students gather in the library and play board games. Games such as Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, imagniff are played alongside classic board games such as Bananagrams, Clue, and Sorry! 

Friday, Jan. 23 is our first game night of spring semester.

What's really neat is that games can be checked out to play in the library at other times! 

Check the library events page for dates and details.

Today, January 19, 2015, we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.   King, born on January, 15, 1929, became a leader in the African-American Civil Rights movement.  King led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, organized nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama, and helped organize the 1963 March in Washington, where he delivered his now famous "I Have a Dream" speech.  King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his efforts to combat racial inequality through nonviolence.  He was assassinated on March 29, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee.
