They say that first impressions are lasting impressions. Although it seems first impressions of other people are quite accurate, it can be misleading in cases such as in organizations and clubs. Many organizations are associated with stereotypes which could be the sole reason that contributes to the ‘first impression’. Church-based organizations such as Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) have stereotypes; many of which are negative. Yet, actually participating in the organization, many will find the culture of the organization has a very pleasant aura that exposes some stereotypes that were ‘assigned’ to the organization are not true at all. CCF is an organization that is not restricted to a specific religious denomination and serving on the campuses of four colleges in North Carolina. The purpose of CCF is to “make disciples on campus who impact the world.” The culture of CFF greatly helps achieve the purpose in different ways. Because of the alarming number of stereotypes of church-based organizations, CCF refutes many misconceptions by managing the stereotypes by the aspects of their culture such as beliefs, traditions and behaviors.
A haunting topic that has been around the Calvin College community for some years now is the college’s library hours on Sundays. Ever since its foundation in 1876, Calvin College has its library close on Sundays primarily because of its derivation from the CRC denomination. The college, as a Christian institution strongly believe in “keeping the sabbath day holy” as stated in Exodus 20. And, as a higher education institution, the college believe in providing students with resources that are necessary for success while at the college and beyond (Calvin 1). They hold these beliefs equally, amongst many others, to be at the very core of their values as a Christian institution.
Imagine a time where the whole world lives a more sustainable lifestyle. Think about how clean and desirable our planet would then become. Well in order to achieve this, we have to start small, why not at the college level. If I were to run for college president, with a platform for a more sustainable campus, I would make sure to make it a fun and enjoyable environment for students. Some changes and ideas I have for the campus would be adding bike paths, increasing the recycling bins, installing solar panels, planting native plants and trees, and buying food locally.

The two main ways that we will engage with students is through a workshop with UCLA Residential Life’s Team Green on the Hill and a booth at the Earth Day Fair. Team Green is a student leadership program that encourages residents in the dormitories to make sustainable lifestyle choices through education, community involvement, and advocacy. By interacting with Team Green Hill Government Representatives, the Housing Team has the potential to impact a large number of students on the Hill. These student leaders organize programs for dormitory residents and have influence within their communities. The Earth Day Fair is another method for spreading awareness to students. The Housing Team hopes to acquire some free samples of green office supplies to give away during the Earth Day

With personal growth being a large part of attending college, my Honors Orientation 102 class would be forever placed as the most impactful class of my college experience. Originally the class introduced and familiarized my class to the campus and college life. Then a transitional came where we went from learning about ourselves and the school to a class about the importance of community. The quality of virtue has been taken advantage of in the normal public and this class taught me that that’s not an absolute. As a final project, my entire class embarked a tree, not just an ordinary tree, but a tree of community. The class of 30 separated into three groups to take on different branches of the tree. One branch was the “Church”. This project
To the students of the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM), people flocking towards Christ the King Chapel at the intersection of University Avenue and Northeast Drive around noon on Thursdays is not at all a rare sight. After all, each Thursday is when the Campus Catholic Ministry (CCM) opens its doors for their weekly Dollar Lunch from 11:30 a.m. until, if one is lucky enough to still have food available, 1:00 p.m. They welcome students and faculty of ULM, and even guests from outside the university to share home-cooked meals with the church and the community to form and strengthen the symbiotic relationship between the two. As the name of the event suggests, students can eat for only $1 while faculty
