It’s finally spring quarter. Or is it? The weather seems to be having its fun with us. It’s cold one second, then t-shirt weather the next. We had about a week of almost 80-degree weather, and then suddenly it decides to snow. It has been rainy the past few days, and though I’m still waiting for spring weather, the quarter has been in full swing. Juggling classes, work, and student activities isn’t always easy, but it is always interesting. 

It’s been an active quarter with intramurals. Softball, flag football, pickle ball, volleyball, badminton, and ultimate Frisbee have all been giving students a much-deserved break from stuffing their heads inside books. The second annual REVO Run Sunday also encouraged us to stay active and at the same time help a worthy cause.

For me, this quarter has brought the opportunity to train to become a Student Association officer. I will be Financial VP next year, as a super-senior, and responsibilities have already begun. First, was a weeklong convention in Loma Linda where current and incoming SA officers from Adventist schools across the country gather to focus on creating a better student experience for our colleges. Since returning to PUC, there have been leadership meetings, planning sessions, and training to prepare for next year’s SA. I can’t wait to be more involved next year in student leadership.

This week, excitement has been building about our yearly talent show. This year we will be able to vote via text message for our favorite performance. It is always exciting to see people’s talents and even be surprised by a friend’s hidden ability, but being able to actively participate in the judging will make it even better. And to add even more excitement, Student Association will be giving out a free iPad to a lucky audience member! It is definitely something I’m looking forward to.

Though I can’t wait for summer and this school year to be over, I’m definitely enjoying the busy excitement that has filled these last few weeks of school. And then when the summer relaxation has reached a lull, I will once again be anticipating the enjoyment of another school year.
