Goals for the New School Year … and How to Reach Them

As the new school year rolls toward mid-term exams, research papers and projects, it’s a perfect time to reflect on our goals for the school year, which is exactly what our journalism students are doing for today’s blog, answering the question: What goals do you have for yourself during this upcoming year, and how do you plan to achieve those goals?

Love, A Sentimental Senior

Dear Freshman, you are about to embark on four of the most exciting years of your life, and I want you to hear this from someone who has recently watched them come to an end.

After a late night practice her freshman year, Dani Jo Stevenson (far left) plays in the snow with her fellow MBU tennis teammates. Stevenson, who graduated in the spring, has written parting words to underclassmen and shared her wisdom as “a sentimental senior.”

The Cost to Feed the Population

Producing food in massive amounts with minimal cost can feed more people and help the fight against world hunger, sounds good right? But the subject is not that black and white.

Remember What We Celebrate at Easter

As we enjoy the Easter weekend, it’s an important time to take a moment away from studying for final exams and wrapping up final projects, a time to reflect on what this holiday means, a time to remember that God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and rise from the grave three days after He was crucified. It’s a time to give thanks for our salvation. Today’s blogs ask students to reflect on key questions they ponder at this most important time on the Christian calendar.

Journey To Joy

Summers are typically for relaxation and preparation for the coming school year. In my family, summer was a time for hard work, faith and traveling as we piled in the family van and set out on our annual missions trips in the U.S.
