Adventures abroad

Sometimes, I’ll be riding my bike or drinking a cup of tea when I’m completely overwhelmed by just being here. Oxford is beautiful, and completely lives up to the nickname “City of Dreaming Spires.” Every day I walk in the footsteps of men and women who shaped all of Western […]

Wellness activity pointless for college athletes

Why in the world do athletes have to take wellness activity? We spend countless hours in the gym every day and yet are required to take a class that requires even more, our time and effort. Athletes should not be required to take a class like bowling or walking and […]

This summer I learned to look at modesty in a completely new way through my experiences with many different cultures. For two weeks I worked and lived in Clarkston, Georgia, a refugee relocation center. Part of our mission at the summer camp I helped lead was to create a comfortable […]
