Fireside Chat: Let’s Talk About Tuition

By Krissy Chapman. Media by Jessica Sturgeon. Monday night in the Upper Union, President Randy Bergen hosted the last Fireside Chat of the school year. It was no surprise to students that the topic of conversation was the recent increase of tuition for the 2013-2014 school year, and students came prepared with questions. In fact, it was one of the biggest turnouts for Fireside Chat this year with about 35 students in attendance. President Randy Bergen, along with his cabinet, Michael Ritter, Brad Shaw, Walter Fenton, and Norm Hall, answered student questions with transparency and insight. Topics of the night spanned from detailed description of the budget and future planning, to more lighthearted topics like cable in the dorm rooms.

In Loving Memory of Watson Tidball

Originally published on Greenville.edu. Digital Media by Jessica Sturgeon. Watson Tidball, beloved member of the extended Greenville College community, passed away at his home on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. He leaves behind a legacy of dedication and service to Greenville College, the City of Greenville, and Bond County. While “Prof” Tidball’s colleagues recall him as a loyal supporter and enthusiastic champion for the college, many more in the Greenville area remember him as a gracious servant and good friend. Greenville College Acting President Randy Bergen said, "I was fortunate to work with Watson right after I graduated from Greenville College in 1984. It was clear then that he loved GC and her students. When I returned 16 years later, he was just as dedicated to making the College a great place to learn and work. We will miss his big personality, his positive attitude, and his willingness to befriend anyone."
