Despite the frigid weather this week, students celebrated the start of Black History Month and found pockets of light in events around campus. One of our photographers attended the vigil for Tyre Nichols at the Public Square Park.

Highlighting voices on campus

The 15th annual Murray Lecture was held in Sarratt Cinema and featured Jemele Hill, moderated by Candice Lee. The Muslim Student Association celebrated National Hijab Day on Feb. 2. Two days later, Black Nashville Assembly hosted a vigil for Tyre Nichols following his violent death in Memphis.

Sports

After a crushing defeat — the third worst in program history — of the men’s basketball team against Alabama, they came home to a win against Ole Miss on Saturday. The women’s team unfortunately could not break its losing week against Georgia on Sunday. Both tennis teams hosted home matches in their ITA Kickoff Weekends, with the women coming out on top against Louisville. The men’s team beat TSU but fell to Princeton.

Editor’s picks 

During a very cold week on campus, students saw frost covered trees walking to class and navigated dripping icicles on pathways. Drilling started at the David Williams II Recreation and Wellness Center fields for a new energy project. Finally, the Unity Lab celebrated their official launch with a talk from the co-authors of “The Big Truth: Upholding Democracy in the Age of the Big Lie.”
