Advice for college

Hey guys! I hope everyone passed midterms! It’s another week down, and this week I’m skipping the video entry to write out my thoughts for y’all! Whaaaaaat 🙂 So college has been one heck of an adventure so far and we’re only three months in. I wanted to provide future, and current students, with some helpful advice -academic and otherwise- that will help you get through your first year and years to come. So without further ado, here are some lessons that might last a lifetime. Create new networks! Make connections with friends, reach out to new people…don’t be afraid![…]

How to Make Friends with the Awkward Dinosaur

One question that I get asked all the time is, “Renee! My goodness, you are a college student now, what ever is your major?” I reply with “Good Sir or Madam, I am a double major in “Bible and Theology” and “Communications”. I love it very much.” To which they reply, “Good heavens! What an unusual combination! What ever do you plan to do with your life?” And they receive from me a blank look of alarm because despite my air of cool collectedness I am quite uncertain of my path in life. This fact never really bothers me unless[…]

▿ Recognize the Good in Your Life ▿

#GRATITUDE “God blesses you to become a blessing. When he gives you a gift, it is because he trusts you with it. He hopes you turn around and do something powerful with it.”                                                          – Anonymous    Throughout life God blesses us. These blessings are gifts. These gifts can be a wide variety of many things, from a challenge we have to overcome, learn from, start over, accept, appreciate, be thankful for, etc. He[…]

Wonderin’ If it’s even worth the chase

Well I’m wonderin’ bout the road ahead of me, Wonderin’ bout the things you said to me, Wonderin’ if these dreams will ever do. And I’m wonderin’ bout the way I spend my days, Wonderin’ if it’s even worth the chase, Wonderin’ if there’s still a need from you.” These lyrics are from a old song by TobyMac called Wonderin’. Lately, I’ve not only found myself listening to it constantly, but relating to the idea of wonderin. A point most of us find themselves in more often than we would like to admit. As college students we come in knowing[…]

9 Apps Every College Student Should Have

Hey friends! I’ve discovered that these apps have been really helpful in my college career. I hope that these will help you as well. 1. Quizlet This is number one because I believe that this app is partially responsible for the times that I get good grades on tests. Basically, Quizlet is a place where you can make notecards online and turn them into many different studying tools. For example, once you make a set of notecards on the website, you can change it to a study guide, printable notecards, and even play games with the terms. Once you create[…]

Intro to Ministry Retreat

Friday night into Saturday morning was the Intro To Ministry class retreat, a trip designed to help beginning ministry students get to know each other and their professors better as well as learn new spiritual disciplines, how to “be real” with people, and the importance questioning mind-set. They threw in a gorgeous catholic retreat center and food because they love us and we got to meet and hang out with the professors who will be teaching us as we embark on our quests for a degree from the Department of Christian Education and Spiritual Formation. It sounded really nice. I[…]

5 Signs You Transferred From A Community College

Hey friends! Being a transfer student gives me a whole new perspective on things, here at MNU.  I’m a new student, but at the same time I have been in college for two years!  Here are just a few things I have noticed about being a transfer student from a community college.   You walk around with your headphones in all the time. People at community college aren’t the most social.  Almost everyone there walks around with headphones in and alone.  It’s almost a social taboo to have a conversation with someone else in the hall. 2.   You do[…]

#ThrowBAG Thursday

A few weeks ago, I completed an assignment for Public Relations class, in which I was assignment to a group and we had to organize an event for a local non-profit company. We chose Kids TLC, an organization that provides shelter and social services to children and youth who are facing abuse, neglect or family disruption, located right here in Olathe. We planned this event basically the whole semester. We had weekly meetings, contacted various people, gathered a lot donations in order to carry out our event. My group had a little bit of everything, a comedian, a perfectionist, a peacemaker,[…]

“Honoring the Past, Shaping the Future”

I mentioned in my blog last week about this cool conference called M15 that I had the privilege to attend. This conference takes place every four years in different places. The fact that it was in Kansas City this year and I was able to go as a freshman was an incredible blessing! My friend Jaque and I left Monday afternoon and headed to downtown Kansas City. MNU took care of most of the costs: hotel, the conference, and lunch on Tuesday. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza hotel. There’s 28 floors to that thing and we were on the 17th. I despise elevators to no end because[…]
