10 Things That Change After Freshman Year

This is my second year at MNU, and although I’m going to the same school and studying the same thing, it seems vastly different from my freshman year. There are quite a few things that have changed, small and big. Here’s my personal list of things that have changed since freshman year. I hope this can apply to other students besides myself. 🙂 1. The amount of times you eat at Campus Center It’s not necessarily that I eat out more, but I get real tired of the having the same thing for dinner every day. Maybe that’s my fault for[…]

Let’s Be Freaks and Weirdos Again

A lot of things can happen during a show week. When you’re forced to spend almost thirty hours in one week with the same group of people, crazy things are bound to happen. Brigadoon was last week and, like most of the “fun” things I try to do on campus, God managed to wrangle his way into it. I’m not going to talk about the show its self–although it was totally awesome, everybody in the cast did a fantastic job, the crew rocked as did the pit, and the male lead was absolutely wonderful (I think he’s super cute too. For[…]

COLLEGE- A YEAR TO FIND YOURSELF

Maybe it’s been the gloomy weather, or maybe it’s all those Coldplay songs I’ve been listening to. But I’ve been in a really poetic mood. So I wrote this poem portraying some of the things you may find yourself dealing with college. A YEAR TO FIND YOURSELF Every season brings in a tide of new faces and waves of new rages. Old prides will be torn down so humility may grow. You will reap what you sow Strangers will become lovers and crushes will forget. You’ll be a hopeless romantic because cupid’s arrows will miss. You’ll tell stories of who[…]

KT’S HOMECOMING WEEK RECAP

Hey! So, last week was Homecoming Week here at MNU… which means every night is filled with fun, friends, and free food. 🙂 Here’s a quick recap of the events that I attended. Thursday night: Hoedown The Hoedown is something I look forward to every year. It’s basically a bunch of fun dancing, donuts from the Louisburg Cider Mill, root beer, and the crowning of the class princes and princesses! Friday night: Bonfire/Buck Night This year, ASG decided to do a giant bonfire at one of the football practice fields and then gave every student free food at the Buck[…]

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 ▿

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 HOMECOMING DO’s & DON’T’S

[two_fifth_last][/two_fifth_last] DON’Ts Don’t say yes out of pity. Spare the other person the embarrassment and yourself the uncomfortable feeling and just say no thanks. Don’t spend a ridiculous amount of money on the night. We’re all college students trying to pay off loans. There’s no need to impress anyone. Don’t ask a guy or girl that you just met the week of homecoming. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for spontaneity, but do you really want homecoming to be your make it or break it? (too soon, my friend, too soon) Don’t sit in the corner and not dance. You[…]

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[…]
