In Gratitude

As a senior who is graduating in less than two weeks, reflection over the past four years and deep, grateful nostalgia have been consuming most of my time. It doesn’t seem real that soon I’ll be an alumna of a university that has taught me the true meaning of a faith that does justice. In [...]

Pedro Arrupe: An Exemplar We Can Relate To

Pedro Arrupe is the Jesuit that I know most about, thanks to Dr. Bergman, social justice exemplar himself. Arrupe’s relationship with God, and his relationship with people, is something that everyone can aspire to.
