For the last year and a half, I have become more and more interested with the Pacific Crest Trail, and each hikers' unique journey walking from Mexico to Canada.
I used to think the most uncomfortable thing to hear as a single person is the question, “How are you single?”
The recent college admissions scandal and all the news-media coverage surrounding it has sucked me in. I find it both salacious and disturbing.
“Singleness is a gift.” I had heard it one million times. I was lonely and I was afraid I would be single forever. I felt like my feelings were invalid or uncalled for because I was ungrateful for this “gift.”

This year's Spring Break Build project was structurally larger than anything PLNU or our partners had attempted before: a 50 x 48 foot multi-purpose room on the property of Primero Iglesia del Nazareno in Tecate, Mexico.
In 1976, a group of 14 PLNU students asked themselves questions that still resonate today: How can we challenge the status quo without destroying the system? How can we speak our truth and not be expelled from school?
The campus was adorned in perfectly hued forest green and sunset gold while students and staff rallied and celebrated the truly victorious season that had come to an end. What a run.

This is the power of a dinner table – or a potluck or a lunch date. Every shared meal is an opportunity to broaden our understanding of people through respectful and unguarded conversation.
Last week I watched my college team make history. They clinched the NCAA Division II West Regional Men’s Basketball Championship and punched their ticket to the Division II Elite Eight.
Why it’s important to be aware of what the housing situation currently looks like in California, especially if you have plans to buy a home in one of those areas in the near or not-so-near future.
