The Spring Showcase, hosted by the DMAD (Digital Media Art and Design) program, is an annual juried exhibition that allows students to try out new techniques or subject matter outside the constraints of the assignments for classes. The lack of restrictions allows students to explore new mediums or combine them to create a unique approach. The showcase is competitive in that there is a limit to how many pieces of work can be included in the show. The limit is set at 20 pieces, meaning that not all the work submitted can be exhibited. This is the second year that the showcase has been online due to Covid-19. Before the pandemic, the showcase exhibition took place in person where students printed their work, framed them, and set them up for viewing in the Widener TV Lounge in Maclellan Hall.

In 2019, Tennessee was ranked 45th and Virginia 40th in the number of mental health providers available (America’s Health Rankings, 2019). The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Program is a new concentration added to the pre-existing Master of Science in Nursing and post-APRN, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, certificate programs within King’s School of Nursing. The program was designed to be delivered through online methods, and King’s unique location on the TN/VA line allows it to reach into both states as well as into surrounding areas. The main goal of the program is to give students the skills and qualifications to help fill the demand for mental health services in the area.
