The majority of Spring Hill students would consider the Avenue of the Oaks or St. Joseph Chapel their favorite place on campus, primarily because of their aesthetic pleasure and historic atmosphere.

However, senior Harrison McNab is more practical. His favorite place is where he spends most of his free time and where he gets the most joy, the Outlaw Recreation Center. McNab says, "If I could live in the gym, I would in a heartbeat."

Dear alumni, parents and friends,

Time and time again I run across alumni and current students who say it is the people that make Spring Hill College special. In this issue of The Spring Hill College Magazine you will find many of the reasons why this statement rings so true. It features the Spring Hill stories of some of our most dedicated employees, including Cynthia Dunklin, Tony Mixon, Laury Rowland, Leola Sanders and Juanita Sasser. Each of their reflections reminds me of the people and hard work it takes to keep this campus humming, day in and day out.

The scholarship, named using the couple's mothers' maiden names, covered complete tuition, room and board. Spring Hill College continued to award the scholarship until 1991.

The fund establishes the Ernst M. and Doris B. Cohn Endowed Scholarship for the Sciences. The scholarship is to be based on financial need and will be awarded annually to students majoring in math or science-related fields.

Spring Hill College has always been a place where the uncommon is commonplace. So, it should not be surprising that the Badger rugby cub has broken new cultural ground.

In the spring of 2013, Spring Hill hired its first full-time rugby head coach to lead not only the men's squad, but to inaugurate a women's program as well. Just adding women's rugby was a radical idea in itself, but more surprising to some observers was the selection as head coach: Mollie McCarthy.
