This summer, I was able to travel to Guatemala to study Spanish while getting to know the culture from an inside perspective. This was my second trip to Central America, the first being with JBU. Traveling to Guatemala independently this summer was such a fascinating and exciting experience!
This is something I often hear from students and faculty when hard discussions of race come up. And, since I teach early American history, the history of slavery and African history here at JBU, the topic of race comes up often.
This summer, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Jordan and Israel with Dr. Vila and a group from JBU to participate in the Abila Archaeological Excavation. When I decided to go on the trip, I had no idea what to expect.
I rarely think ahead. I did not consider my options very much before I made the decision to go on the Jordan study abroad trip this summer, and I hardly thought about it at all before I hopped on the plane.
With regards to the Next Big Thing album review recently published in the Threefold Advocate, I believe three major things should have been taken into account when writing these reviews: the size of this school, the weight of the contest, and the means by which the music was produced.
