“The secret to living the life of your dreams is to start living the life of your dreams today, in every little way you possibly can.” - By Mike Dooley
I saw this quote and it made me think about all that college is about, but let me take a minute to introduce myself before I get deeper.
This is my second year at Bethel College and I love it. I grew up just across the tracks in Newton (less then 5 minutes away from campus.) I’m majoring in Communication Arts and minoring in Art and Literary Studies. I hope to use this degree to get a job in journalism. I play basketball and throw in track. Also, I work on the Newspaper staff as the news editor. And lastly I am working this year on campus as an RA (Resident Assistant.) In my free time, I spend it hanging out with friends, watching movies, playing basketball and sleeping. I spend a lot of time on facebook, my new addiction is Tetris battle.
My name is Jennie Warkentine, and I’m a senior Elementary Education and Bible & Religion major from Wichita, Kansas. This year I’m active in chapel planning, and have sung with the Women’s Chorus. I’m a transfer student from Hesston College, and this is my second year on campus. I love to read, quilt, and play board games. I chose Bethel because when I graduated from Hesston College and was looking at a Christian college with a strong education program, I learned that Bethel’s teacher education department is well-known and highly respected in the state of Kansas (where I hope to be teaching next school year). I also have family ties to the college (my grandma was the manager of the bookstore for over 20 years and numerous family members have attended here).
My name is Claire Unruh. I am a senior at Bethel, dual-majoring in Biology and Bible & Religion, with minors in Spanish and Chemistry. I am originally from Clay Center, Kansas, which is about an hour and a half drive to the north. My parents met at Bethel and so I’ve always been to Fall Fest and a few assorted activities on campus, such as the Summer Science Institute. Once I reached my senior year of high school, I looked into their science program (excellent), campus size (small) and probability of being involved in activities (high). Based on these criteria, I decided to apply and was accepted.
Hello all! My name is Jocelyn Wilkinson, and I’m a sophomore from San Antonio, Texas. I’m majoring in both Communication Arts and History, with a possible minor in Psychology. I chose communications because it allows me to keep in touch with theater (which I did a ton of in high school) while learning the basic concepts behind it; history I chose simply because I love the subject.
And so it begins. We’re all back at Bethel now and classes have started.
It’s my second year here, and my second year of blogging, but for those of you who don’t know I am Megan Leary, sophomore math major and blogger extraordinaire. Just kidding. I really am a math major though.
I grew up right here in North Newton and wasn’t an official “campus kid” but sure spent a lot of my childhood at Bethel. There were summer camps, plays, sporting events, church events and all other sorts of reasons to be on campus.
