"Greenville College is a community in which individuals join together to further their academic achievement, personal development, and spiritual growth. Together we seek to honor Christ by integrating faith and learning while our hearts and lives reflect mature Christian practice."
At Greenville College, one thing that is stressed is how important it is to experience different cultures. This is done in two different ways. First, Greenville sends students to places all around the world, whether this is through a short term mission trip, a semester abroad, or anything in between. Several students, including myself, have been able to experience cultures by immersing themselves in it for a period of time.
The Simple Room, a local youth center, is well into the new school year with a brand new executive staff at the helm. Jamie Harling, a recent GC graduate in Elementary Education, TESL, and Spanish stepped into the position of Executive Director in August. Josh Dees, a current GC student, cross country runner/coach, and Biology instructor, took the Director of Family Relations position in September, while Chad Warner, former Young Adult minister at Greenville First Christian Church, came on as the Community Outreach Director.
While Greenville College’s Factory Theatre has seen some change over the last couple years, the show must go on! In light of this motif, seasoned director Cecelia Ulmer has returned from retirement to provide a little help during a time of transition at the theatre. However, this means that you know that this show is in good hands. Having been a part of the Factory Theatre since before any of us can remember, Dr. Ulmer knows the ins and outs of theatre like no one else on campus, and she is proud to present for this year’s fall performance Harvey by Mary Chase.
For many of us, social media is as much a part of our lives as eating, doing homework, and going to class. We’re checking alerts, updating our status, and commenting on the finer aspects of our life. So, if it’s such a normal aspect of what we do every day, should we consider using it during the times that it’s normally not allowed? How might that benefit us, and how might it prove to be more trouble than it’s worth?
Have you ever been to Egypt? I have not. If you have been to Egypt at all, you will probably notice pyramids, warm weather and all what Egypt has to offer. If you have been in Egypt at some point after the fall of Hosni Mubarak, then you will have noticed people for and against the government in a sharp divide. The divide is between the Muslim groups and Non-Christians toward the Coptic Christians.
Being an intern isn’t easy, I’m sure! No, I’ve never been one before, but I would feel if I’m highly qualified to do work and if there’s a lot demanded of me, it’s considered a job. People who have jobs/careers should get paid for the work they do, so that means interns should be given money. It’s unfortunate that many American corporations don’t pay their interns for all their hard work, so yes they are taking advantage of them! (See: Unpaid Interns) Of course, just the experience of working with these companies can be great, but let’s face it, money and experience would be better!
