Were back!!! Join Logan and I once again as we recount the amazing summer we had traveling on MNU Serve Teams. We’ll give you guys the scoop of what’s to come this year, and get your input on which adventures we should take on next.
And so the hunt beings. You can smell the excitement and fear in the air. It is internship application time! Some of us will come out victorious with our dream summer internship to look forward to… others of us will not be quite so lucky. Either way it is well worth the climb. Months ago I put in my application for Starlight Theatre’s summer production intern position. Applications were due at the end of March. Mine was turned in January 15th. This was my second year applying for an inters hip with Starlight. Last year I received an email saying that[…]Read More
Week 9 Vlog. This video highlights my summer job at Camp Table Rock and how that ties into MIdAmerica Nazarene University. Song: Jesus is Mine, Ryan Little.
I asked different people on campus to finish the following sentences about summer: Summer means ___________ . One thing about MNU I will miss is ____________ . One thing about MNU I won’t miss is ______________ . The first thing I will do during break is ______________ . My plans for the summer are ____________ . Everyone has different plans and thinks differently about the summer time. Personally, I am not a big fan of summer. Mostly, because I work full time. As you can see, my summer is pretty boring, so let’s see what the rest of MNU does[…]Read More
It’s officially April… which means we only have a month of school left… which also means that I’m counting down the days until summer. Ever since coming to college, I’ve spent every summer living and working at Youthfront Camp West. That’s all I’ve really known when it comes to summer. However, this summer I’ll be doing something a little bit different. I’ll be working for Youthfront again, but this time I’ll be doing a marketing internship with them! I’m super pumped about this opportunity to work for Youthfront in a different capacity. It’s going to be great experience for me,[…]Read More
Hey friends! You may have noticed that I did not post on my normal day. Over the fall break weekend I went on a hiking and backpacking trip in Arkansas with Kairos. Kairos is the college age ministry group that meets at College Church of the Nazarene. They normally take a trip every school break. They go backpacking during fall break, skiing over winter break, backpacking again over spring break, and white water rafting over summer vacation. Over fall break 22 MNU and JCCC students went to Arkansas and hiked the Ozark Highland Trails. We also peaked Whiterock Mountain. I[…]Read More
Hi! As we begin to wrap up the school year, I don’t know about anyone else, but my stress meter has exploded. I just finished a 1500 word paper, which, that sounds really bad, but I actually quite enjoyed it! It just took too much time. Lately my mind has been everywhere in attempts to process everything that’s going on all at once. I feel like I’m trying to relive the past school year in hopes to make sure they’re real. If that makes sense. Being a sensitive person, the end to this school year has really got me on[…]Read More
And so begins the busiest month of the semester: In February, there’s a lot going on at MNU, so here’s what you can be excited for: The RA Selection Process Every spring, the interview process to select new RAs begins. Resident Assistants are the liaison between the Residential Life staff, and the residents of the on-campus dorms, so you can imagine a rigorous interview process. RAs are typically the go-to person for any issue with your room, any type of question, or, in some cases, for advice and guidance. These are the people you spend a lot of your time[…]Read More
Hello Friends! I came to the realization today that my freshman year of college is almost over. It’s insane to think about how fast this first year has gone. The feeling is bittersweet! I know there are going to be many exciting things to come in the near future, but it’s crazy how fast these good times have gone by. So yes, there are 17 more days left until summer, counting the weekends. I am SO very excited to finish off the school year and head into more adventures these next couple of months. I am definitely striving to finish strong with my school work and[…]Read More
Kansas: Good ol’ Home on the Range Given statehood on January 29th, 1861 The Sunflower State Birthplace to Barry Sanders and Bob Dole Known for unpredictable and ridiculous weather trends. And the current home to a HORRENDOUS WHITE SUBSTANCE THAT FELL FROM THE SKY. I think we all know I’m referring to snow. Please allow the next few lines of letters formed into words to be a venting session. Now, I know I know, BAHUMBUG. BUT, I like the snow…..for about 15 minutes. Then it can melt. February 3rd, 4th, and 5th brought forth a ridiculous amount of snowfall. This[…]Read More
