When School sets your eyes on Jesus

One thing that I absolutely love about MidAmerica is that my professors will lead devotions before class or tie the material that we are learning that day into faith. This has really helped me to see how faith can be applied really everywhere in life. I remember sitting in a Communications Class and discussing how the theory of Cognitive Dissonance relates to the Holy Spirit and personal conviction of sin. It caused me to think about how God uses human psychology at times and how he goes against at other times causing us to know it has to be from[…]

It Has Only Been the 1st Week of School

I love how, on the first day of fall semester, everyone is so excited to start school. Students arrive 3+ days early, setting up their dorm rooms, if they are living on campus. Then fall break comes and everyone is so happy the semester is over! Now, spring semester has began. Everyone is coming back as late as possible. Some students are even arriving on campus a few days after their classes have started. I find this, quite, hilarious. It has only been the first week back, and I am counting down the days, till spring break. It has only[…]

The Awkward Dinosaur Tries New Things

It’s a new semester, a new year, with new classes, a new job, and a time to try new things and start new habits. This week I have begun all sorts of new things. First of all I began my new job as Managing Editor and News Editor of the Trailblazer. I have a new office on campus and brand new coworkers. I got to decorate my office which was awesome and it’s really nice to have a place of my own to get some work done during the day. I’ve been loving my new classes but probably my favorite[…]

My Favorite Memories From This Semester

As the semester comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on my favorite memories of sophomore year so far. The first thing that comes to mind is the trip I took to Colorado over fall break. I went with my friend Christen and we stayed with an amazing family while we were there. Christen and I explored Colorado Springs, hung out with horses, watched some Royals baseball, and went to New Life Church. Speaking of Royals baseball, another one of my favorite memories is when the Royal’s won the World Series… and every game leading up to that. My friends[…]

It’s OK To Feel Down Sometimes

Hey friends! So I wanted to talk about this during mental health awareness week but I obviously missed that chance, but I think that I can tie the subject in pretty well to this upcoming week. “But Isaac!  What are you even talking about?!” I’m glad you asked!  I am talking about depression. “But Isaac!  How does this subject tie into this upcoming week?!” Ok, calm down I’ll tell you. Finals week is stressful.  For some people, probably more than you think, it is a make it or break it time.  For some people, these tests are a matter of[…]

Creating an Integrated Marketing Communications Plan

For the past few months, I’ve been working on a semester long project for my Promotion Management class with a few teammates. The assignment consisted of creating an Integrated Marketing Plan for the MNU Admissions Department. Specifically, we were supposed to create a plan to market the current SCOUT events that MNU holds. It was crazy. We had to conduct our own research and think of every possible way to market high school students for SCOUT. I say that it was crazy, and it definitely was, but it was also super fun and interesting. That was my first time doing a Marketing Plan,[…]

Fall Semester Is Almost Over 📚

There are only two weeks left of our fall semester. We call this period of the semester “crunch time.” This is where a lot of students are trying to do anything and everything to get their letter grade from a B to an A; or for those students struggling to pass that tough class, with a C or better. This is when, students start asking their professors for extra credit, or if there is anything else they can do to get their grade up. A biology professor of mine, ounce said . . . “Why would I trust and spend my hard earned[…]

Success Mushroom

I can’t sing. I am not a musical person. My friends are musical people but I was not given that gift. I can art…sometimes. People tell me I can art but I won’t attempt to draw something that I’ve never drawn before because people might look at it and realize I’m not very good at arting after all. I am as good of a Christian as I am ever going to be. I have a certain ability to understand and experience God and I should be content with where I am. These were statements that I believed about myself about[…]

Terms You Learn in College

Last week it dawned on me that my vocabulary has recently expanded. Upon coming to college, there are several new terms that I’ve had to learn and use in my every day vocabulary. I wanted to share those with you all in hopes that you don’t have to stare blankly back at those would use them on you in your years to come. Love Language: This is the verbal and nonverbal communication between you and your significant other in which you express how you feel. I’d never heard anyone say this until this year…and now everyone does. The hard part is everyone[…]
