I am overjoyed to be your Campus Chronicle editor next year, but let me make a confession: I never expected to be your Campus Chronicle editor. In fact, I never planned on getting too involved when I first arrived on campus fall 2013. The plan from day one was to get into medical school ,but multiple club officer positions, a desk job and two years as a Senator-At-Large later, here I am. The reason I gravitated towards any leadership role is because I believe in Pacific Union College. College is the time where we wind up where we never expected, but where we need to be.

The self-portraits of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are quite clear. Sanders depicts himself as a political outsider and champion of the middle class. Clinton presents herself as an experienced politician, who grasps the complex issues facing most Americans. But what do the statistics say about why Democrats are supporting either candidate?

Film majors are used to long days, lots of outside work and sleepless nights, sometimes going several days without any, or only very little, sleep. But all their hard work pays off as they see their finished products flash across the big screen. For many students, both film majors and their friends and supporters, the Diogenes Film Festival represents the culmination of dozens of hours of hard work and fun.

That One Samurai Piece

It all started one foggy winter night (foggy for atmosphere and winter for a lack of specific memory). After one especially raunchy meeting for the Campus Chronicle (yeah, I know, meta), the topic of a certain “fashion show” was brought up. Piqued by my own narcissistic pipe dreams of being a model, I shimmied on over to my future fashion show partner, Taylor Pittenger (T-pit for short). She had brought up an interest in being a designer for the upcoming show. The mission was clear: somehow find a way to get in on this fashion thing. So I did what any logical human person would do. I forcibly injected myself into T-pit’s plans as a designer and, much like some potentially lethal parasites, I took hold. Fast forward to the literal night before the show. The three musketeers, T-pit, myself, and Hannah Barnes (a.k.a. No Sleep) slowly descended into insanity. The classic struggles were there. Fits of pent up rage and regret. Laughing at nothing. Realizing just how comfortable laying on the floor really is. But somehow, we made it. But why regale the suffering that is hot glue and insomnia? No reason, really. I’m really here to talk about one piece in our cardboard collection: the samurai.

In the face of overwhelming concern and outrage over the issues of academic freedom and lack of transparency between administration and students, a town hall was held to allow discussion between the two parties. Moderated by the campus chaplains, not only President Knight, but many other vice presidents took the stage, prepared to hear and answer the students concerns. Students pleaded for the opportunity to discuss difficult topics in their classes and interact with individuals of others beliefs and experiences, highlighting the topic of academic freedom. The administration’s answer to the students’ cries was a resounding “No,” through the sole voice of Pacific Union College President Heather Knight.

Find Your Place

To the people who make this place Home —

If you spend enough time with me, you’ll learn a couple things. Number one, I’m a goofball through and through. Most of the time I can’t be taken seriously and with good cause. I budget roughly half my time to pinching Robell or scaring the poop out of Maddie. The second is that I’m an awful student. If we share a class and you ask me what’s due, my response is likely to be “I don’t know,” or “We had something due?” accompanied by a shocked expression and the onset of delirium. I rarely buy books, miss more class than I should and still think Wikipedia is an acceptable source for my 10-page research essays. It’s always been this way, even when the most I had to do was an odd number of simple multiplication problems in third grade. I am not an academic and I am not proud of my GPA — but I am so proud to call this campus my Home.
