“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” notes the KJV of Jesus’ teachings in Matthew 7:7.

Carson-Newman University students who include the organizer of and contributors to a Twitter account, “Overheard at C-N,” may see wanted changes, thanks in part to those willing to ask, seek and listen of those who say they are those ready to listen.
