Kaushik Dhanyamraju - December 01, 2016
It all started on a cold November afternoon. I was all snuggled up in my bed, registering for classes to take for the Spring 2016 semester while resisting the urge to take another one of my lengthy afternoon naps. Suddenly, I found myself in what could be described as a tight situation: I only had 3 classes and a lab equating to 10 credits registered, which left me 2 credits short of eligibility for a full-time student status and for the NCAA, and the other required courses for my major in Accounting were not going to be offered in the spring. Suddenly, my inner Jimmy Neutron sprung to life and I had a brain blast; in this brain blast, my mind bellowed the one golden word that would solve my predicament: INTERNSHIP!

Judaism has always been a part of my life. It has shaped and molded my values and beliefs. It has taught me humility and empathy for everyone and everything around me. And it has empowered me and it's defeated me. The only thing Judaism will not do to me is leave me.

Faith, for me, is a daily beckoning to trust, and entrust myself to, a world of unseen and imaginative reality that pervades the seen and the ordinary. This beckoning comes from beyond myself, from the utterly mysterious and loving reality that the Church comes into contact with through the enigmatic presence of Jesus of Nazareth, crucified and risen, one in being with the Father.

We want student-athletes who want to be serious students, young men who look to achieve to their maximum potential in the classroom. On the court we want players that accept a role, give maximum effort and are willing to sacrifice for their teammates.

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week is a national effort with an international focus. Days before Thanksgiving, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) is an opportunity to remind us what we’re thankful for, while calling to mind those, who in our global society, are experiencing hunger and homelessness. Defined as a social movement, HHAW is a platform where everyone involved can play a part in highlighting injustices, and put pressure on lawmakers to make positive change that will unite our society.

I’ve discovered which cafes are true cafes and which ones are the tourist traps. I find myself passing fanny-pack wearing, giant-map-toting, photograph-taking families thinking “silly tourists”, before realizing that I have only been here two weeks and the locals probably say the same thing about me!

I hope to run into other alumni and current students from the publishing and creative writing programs throughout the weekend. But it’s not all shaking hands and talking about Rosemont College. I will be presenting a talk on strategies that creative nonfiction writers can steal from poets in order to craft better essays.

If you haven't had the pleasure of traveling to Europe, Ravens, I highly recommend you begin to research doing so. There is a wonderful feeling unlike any other, when you stroll the cobblestone streets of a historic city and allow yourself to absorb the culture. The next time you visit a new city, allow yourself some quiet time to explore with your own thoughts. Walk around, scope out your surroundings, talk to the locals, and allow yourself to take it all in.

The next couple days will be spent absorbing Paris, London, and eventually making my way back to Christ Church. I am excited to continue this exciting adventure and learn as much about the history, culture and locals as I can.

The Global Study trip has been amazing thus far. To be in Oxford studying and living at Christ Church College has been such an incredible opportunity. It also has been extremely humbling to be traveling with my fellow classmates and other students from other majors.

The post graduate classes have been both educational and enlightening. I find myself enjoying this scholastic adventure as an adult far more than I did as an undergrad. I've had the excellent opportunity to meet tremendous people who share the same passion for education and growth as I do.

First of all, you are some of the best things about our lives. We love teaching you our precious craft. We love listening as you expound on the virtues (or follies) of the Hemingway, Joyce, Walker, Atwood you’ve just read. We love watching your work evolve during the time that you are with us. We love hanging out with you and hearing about your life. We love learning from you.
