Making a Difference, Sharing our Journeys

June 2006

Two students share stories on...
Making a difference: "Participating in weekly volunteering groups ... allows us to know that the world is bigger than us, bigger than our studies and our degrees, and know that we have a place in it all; and with that, a certain responsibility to ignite positive change in our environments." (Steph)
Sharing the Journey: "There were times in the past where I had felt a spiritual connection with life, but in this discussion group I was able to share my experience." (Deirdre)

More than a Buzzword

April 2006

This "light bulb moment," inspired by the experience of community throughout the weekend, reflected both sadness and the hope of having discovered that it is possible to find truly embracing community.
