City by the Sea

Hello all! This is Ahna. Callie gave me the privilege of writing on her blog, so here I am. I chose to travel to Greece because I am a Classics major studying ancient Greek and am really interested in this historically rich culture. This trip has included many firsts for me: first time on an […]

kalemera from Hellas

Hey everyone! Callie Christensen here. Sorry it’s been a couple days since our arrival and I haven’t gotten the chance to update you on our exciting and eventful trip. It’s been a bit frustrating over here in Greece trying to find a handful of free time to sit down at the internet cafe to write […]

Only the Steps I Take

Only The Steps I Take Global Missions Newsletter for May by Justin Haaheim The last few weeks have brought hard times for the barrio San Pablo, and likewise for many parts of Buenos Aires.

Back in action!

I am now back from my blog hiatus, otherwise known as Jterm and most of second semester. Oops. Things have sure started to get surreal around here. There is only a week and a half left of classes and we are staring down graduation! I can’t believe how quickly the four years here have gone, […]

On the topic of J-Term

It has been some time since I last wrote here. My apologies. This has been an untypically busy J-Term1 and there is nothing better than that. The one thing that I hear from people are complaints that they can’t get major requirements or other “needed” classes in and I also hear in whispers that the […]

Finals time. I have my only two tests tomorrow but, instead of studying, I’m writing a blog post. Yeah, that’s just so studious of me. It’s been something of a case of ennui with me though (yes, I’m making excuses and rationalizing my behavior). It’s just been hard to get that motivation going after peaking […]

Happy Holidays!

Friday — the first day of finals is upon us. Unfortunately for me, I did not use Reading Day to the best of my advantage, a.k.a. I only studied for about two hours but managed to watch at least four movies. ┬áThe good news is that my first final/paper due date is not until Monday. […]
