Deciding on a Career

It seems like only yesterday I was packing up my bags and moving onto the FPU campus for the first time. Now as I am headed into my junior year, I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. As the days go by, I realize that I am one step closer to graduation, which […]

Which school is the best?

I had an interesting conversation the other day. I was telling my friend how I received straight A’s this semester and a young man overheard us. He seemed shocked and said, “Wait, what college do you go to?” After telling him I went to FPU, he said, “Oh, that makes sense. I go to UC […]

A Summer Update

It is week two of summer and I am already starting to feel a little lazy. It feels weird not having to work on homework or study for tests because my academics are a huge part of my life. Speaking of which, I did technically get straight A’s this semester, but I no longer have 4.0 […]

Wrapping Up the Year

  The sun is out to stay, students are playing games on The Green and free ice cream is being given out in the forest. This could only mean one thing: summer is coming soon. As exciting as it is to think I only have a week and a half left of school, I can’t […]

Learning to be a Leader

This past weekend I went to Cal Baptist University to attend CCLC (Christian College Leadership Conference) with various other leaders from our school. This conference is meant to help us connect with other leaders, learn new ideas, and prepare for the upcoming year. We were fortunate to have Josh Riebock as our guest speaker and […]

Transitioning into Spring

  The second half of the second semester has officially begun and students are busier than ever. With only eight weeks left of school, everyone is hustling to finish papers, ace exams, bring up their grades, register for next year, plan for the summer and somehow still have time to enjoy college life. In the […]

February Fun

I think February is my new favorite month. There are so many awesome things going on and it really makes me happy. During the first weekend in February, Dominic and I went on a day trip to Carmel and Monterey Bay together. This event was put on by the FPU Commuter Council. First, we spent […]

Changes in the New Year

Happy New Year! Can you believe the year is 2014? I don’t know about you, but I feel really old. I remember being a little girl and thinking that by now everyone would be flying around on hovercrafts. It seemed so far into the future to me. But now that I’m a little older, I don’t […]

Another Semester Done

I was just stalking myself on Facebook. I know that sounds weird, but I like to go through all of my posts and make sure that everything I post reflects who I am in a positive way. As I was scrolling down the screen, I noticed tears coming to my eyes. I have truly had […]

Fall Has Arrived

I have reached the half-way mark for the semester, which is pretty remarkable. My weeks have sped by and a lot has been going on in the past month or so. Classes are going well, I think. I’ve been doing extremely well in my biology class, which again proved to me that I need to […]
