The annual business club ski weekend has come upon us—and just in time for many, because of the piles of homework are growing by the second. Many people decided to go back home while others are taking a trip up to South Lake Tahoe to snowboard, ski or sled. Personally, I decided to spend the long weekend at school and San Francisco. I just want to relax after midterms.

Thursday morning in colloquy, we had a special service celebrating African-American Heritage month. Our guest speaker was Dr. Emil Peeler from Loma Linda University, who led a wonderful service filled with great music and exciting stories from him and President Knight.

I have been attending PUC since my freshman year and I am now a senior ready to graduate this year. While it has been stressful, I have made new friends and gotten to know my professors really well, which I don’t think I could have experienced at any other school. I will miss them much. As a senior, I’m currently working on my senior thesis in order to complete my European history degree. Working on this project on top of the endless amount of papers assigned as a history major has made the library my best friend. But, I don’t mind so much. I wouldn’t trade what I’ve learned for anything.

Besides having the annual ski weekend, midterms are here and many are seen studying and readying themselves. This year going by so fast—the Student Association elections are already coming up. Many students are eager to hold new positions and many of them are scattering to get their petition signed. I cannot believe this winter quarter is halfway done! Just to think that in four months I will be graduating. This year has been nerve-racking yet invigorating because of the activities on campus and the homework load. Greetings from the Napa Valley!
