Things I Will Miss-Relationships

The thing I will miss most about Fresno Pacific University is the relationships. I will miss the people I’ve gotten to know over the last four years, and the relationships I’ve formed as a result. This last week has been one of the most difficult weeks of my life. For the majority of the week […]

Things I Will Miss-Learning Places

Last week I talked about the different learning experiences I have had while at Fresno Pacific. This week I want to share with you some of my favorite learning places. If you have read any of my blogs, chances are you have read about The Table 2.0. There’s a lot of reasons for this, the […]

Things I Will Miss-Learning Experiences

Don’t get me wrong, the books we read in most my classes have been extremely informative and interesting. I loved the in-class discussions we had, and as a result, […]

Things I Will Miss-MCC Sale

Well, it’s been a while since my last blog for a few reasons. The first is that it is that point in the semester when everything creeps up on you. So most Sunday and Monday nights have been filled with studying or finishing papers to turn in on time. But, that can only mean one […]

My First Break

This is the first break I have truly had since starting college. I don’t mean that this last week was the first time I had days off from classes, because that’s not true, but last week was the first week I didn’t have to work or go to classes at all in the history of […]

Lost in Transition

As I had to say good-bye to another member of the UCM team, I had a realization. Since I have been working at Fresno Pacific in the University Communications and Marketing Office, I have seen a lot of transition. Some of that has been due to people moving forward in their careers by choice, but […]

The Last Two Weeks

A lot of good things have happened in the last two weeks. For one, I feel like I am kind of handling my homework. There’s still a lot I want to get done for the next few weeks, but I don’t feel as if I am really drowning anymore…it’s a great feeling to say the […]

A Much Needed Monday Holiday

Well, it’s only been the first week of classes, which for me means three days of school. I have all the syllabus dates put into my planner and my checklist and it seems like I’m already swimming. I mean, I’m not already that behind, but there’s a lot of reading for me to do this […]
