Finally, after five years of college, I can finally say I am graduating. Yes, I stand as a “super senior,” and I am pretty sure my parents let out a sigh of relief when I signed my graduation contract. I am a transfer student from La Sierra University and being here at PUC has really given me an authentic taste of college life.

PUC has just embarked on its winter quarter and right now it is in the middle of Winter Revival. Winter Revival is one week during winter quarter when students attend daily worships with a guest speaker. This quarter it’s youth pastor Godfrey Miranda, a PUC grad who was a student here just six years ago.

Being a history major, I am required to write my senior thesis, which is a thirty-page paper on a topic of my choice of a historical event. Currently, I am living in the library, even enjoying my delicious cafeteria food in there. But just recently, I managed to escape the library and take a road trip to Santa Cruz and San Francisco where I met some interesting people and managed to make new friends.

I am also the vice-president for the history club and my group and I are planning a historical field trip to Angel Island. We plan to volunteer to clean up the park and learn about immigration during the 1950s.

 Let me tell you, being a student here at PUC is anything but ordinary. With so many activities, cities to visit, and endless piles of homework, I have no idea how students can possibly have a tedious time here. Saludos!
