Psychology students present Facebook research study at conference

IMG_1178_t607 2

“It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about a Facebook profile picture?”

A recent research study conducted by five Tennessee Wesleyan College students asks this hypothetical question and then answers it with dedicated research and scholarship. The study, “Facebook and Self-Esteem: What your profile picture says about you,” was presented in poster format on Feb. 17 at the  Southeastern Psychological Association Conference in New Orleans, La. by TWC psychology majors Jennifer White, Mallory Cullin, Kallie Tinnel, Spencer Creekmore and Tanner Stencil.

Full Story

Scholarship donated in honor of TWC professors


When Bryan and Beth Jackson moved from Knoxville to Athens, Tenn., in 1980, “the Friendly City” was more of an idea than a reality. After more than 30 enjoyable years of life in Athens, 12 of which Bryan spent teaching business at Tennessee Wesleyan College, the Jacksons have decided to give back to the community and college that they love.

“Since we’ve been in Athens so many people have reached out to help us and have done so much for us,” said Bryan, a TWC board of trustees member who co-owns Jackson and Runyan CPA's, PLLC, a local accounting firm. “We’ve been able to build this business, prosper, have a great life and raise three wonderful children here. That’s just the kind of experience that makes you want to give back.”
