How I Joined “Meet Me in St. Louis”

If you’re on the edge about being in a show, I say go for it. Just make sure you’re willing to commit to it, but I promise you won’t regret it. This has become one of my best memories so far as a student at HU.

My Story from StoryCon

Excitement. Curiosity. Nervousness.These were all emotions I felt attending my first StoryCon at Huntington University. Dr. Todd Martin, director of StoryCon, had hyped up the event and suggested I attend. As a newer English major, I felt like I would be the least knowledgeable person in the room and the least qualified to take part in the making and telling of stories. However, I was curious about the poetry workshop, and with a free lunch involved, I couldn’t say no. I apprehensively registered for StoryCon 2022, and looking back, I am so thankful I did.

Do I really need to go to college?

The college decision is a big deal, and one that impacts your future significantly. The pressure to answer questions about a major and your future career could make you hesitant about college, but the truth is that college will bring more value to your life than simply preparing for a specific career, even if you remain undecided. What you learn goes far beyond the classroom.

“Eyeing” a Photography Career

Art majors find their inspiration as they work with different mediums: clay, charcoal, ceramics, and more. They are trained to see the world around them and interpret it through the medium of their choice. For some students, that “artist’s eye” is best behind a camera lens.

Nursing and the Nativity

At a Christian nursing school like Huntington University, nursing students learn all the practical knowledge and skills to be successful nurses and develop their emotional health to provide care with a servant’s heart. In a field like maternal and child health, nurses have abundant opportunity to connect with those in need. They can share their faith or simply serve the Lord by loving and caring for their patients.

A Tip From the Psychology Department: Don’t Believe Everything You Read

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions. At Huntington University, we like to push beyond given information and challenge our minds to think about other options. In doing this, we develop our minds to think critically. This brain function is used often in the Department of Psychology. Need an example that you can’t believe every headline you read?

High School vs. College

The transition from high school to college can be jarring, even if you already have an idea of what to expect. Personally, I was unsure if I would be blindsided by the incoming load of responsibilities or if I was just getting myself too worked up. Whatever the case is for you, knowing the difference between high school and college may help you know what to expect and adjust to the transition.

Authentic Storytelling at HU

As someone who writes frequently, I have storytelling skills that I think can be useful in learning more about someone’s authentic life story and how God, their Author, is writing through them. With the stage of life that most students are in, a simple way to learn more about someone is to ask about their major. To get a person’s full, meaningful story, consider using some of these questions or refining some of the questions you may have asked in the past.

How Community Mental Health Benefits Our Community

Community mental health centers are an essential part of the overall mental health support available to the public. Sadly, they are often overlooked or given a negative perception based on their work alongside clients serving probation or their relationship with the Department of Child Services. Community health centers work hard to serve these populations well, but these organizations offer many other community benefits:
