If I were to give a new student advice on how to survive college, the first word that would come out of my mouth is, “God.” It is crucial to have a backbone of faith – in something. By having faith in our Lord, you will have more faith in yourself. When you have more […]

A lot of our values growing up have been shaped by movies and television and I’m not ashamed to admit it. This spring break, I’ve been catching up on a TV show called “Supernatural.” It’s about two brothers that fight evil forces in the world. The show is funny, graphic, and full of cool visual effects, […]

by Alumni Posts January 21, 2014

Hello again, readers! It’s so nice to not only be starting a new year, but a whole new selection of classes. Break was most definitely not long enough for a large portion of us I would assume! Even so, it was much needed and well-deserved. What are your resolutions for 2014? Maybe you only have […]

Happy Holidays

by Alumni Posts December 11, 2013

I feel so guilty already! My family doesn’t exactly have set holiday plans for Winter break like everybody else. Rather, we’re spending time bonding with each other because I feel like that’s something we can certainly improve on! The Christmas season isn’t about gifts and gluttony, food and folly. It’s about love. Thus, that’s what […]

Thanksgiving and Finals Week are coming!

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, […]
