Fish, 14ers, and Family

Fish, 14ers, and Family

As the scribe most recently chosen to update, I shall to my utmost best recall for you the events of this past weekend. Summit has been a time of learning, of new experiences, of difficulties to be overcome, and this weekend was to follow in its footsteps. We started out on Friday with a lesson in John Stuart Mill's policy…

Journey for Truth

Journey for Truth

Wow, it's hard to believe nearly three weeks of Summit Semester have passed already! So much has happened, and I have finally begun to feel a steady routine settling in. Classes continue to provide thrill, excitement, and slight anxiety; you never know when Dr. Bauman will call on you to provide an impromptu answer in defense of your belief, or…

Hay Barns and Hula-Hoops

Hay Barns and Hula-Hoops

It's Monday. The weekend is over and it's time again to get back to class. Over the weekend however, Nate and Mary Schramm led a team building event for all the students. Along with the fun and silliness came the frustrating and patience trying experience of working together to accomplish seemingly simple and easy tasks. For example, fourteen of us…

Photo Gallery on Flickr

My name is Shun-Luoi Fong and I am on staff with Summit Semester. Part of my duties as staff is to tote a camera along wherever we go and capture the students in all their glory! You'll see plenty of their glory if you head on over to the Summit Semester 2008 photo gallery on Flickr.com. As you are probably…

Familiarity, Where Art Thou?

Familiarity, Where Art Thou?

The past two weeks have been so full of information, activities, and new experiences. I think we are all craving a little rest, solitude, and familiarity. I will have my break before my fellow students because I am sick. There is nothing like sickness to tell one when they need to slow down. So today, I am getting my supply…

Fun in the Mountains

Fun in the Mountains

I have only been here one week and three days and I am thoroughly enjoying myself here in Pagosa Springs. I am so excited for all of the students that are here. We all share the common desire to learn. I know I'll get to know all of them very well since we get to live together for three months.…

Laughter, Santa, Roses, and the Greater Things in Life

Laughter, Santa, Roses, and the Greater Things in Life

Life here at Summit Semester is like none other. Every day I wake up to the wonder of the mountains outside my window. I look at them and marvel at the powerful God that created them and all of mankind. The community that He has brought together here in Pagosa is amazing. There are so many different personalities and it…

Waking moments

Waking moments

Today was our second workday. Therefore, while others were cooking and cleaning, a large number of us students and a few staff were digging a drainage trench from 1:30 -3:35. Personally I enjoy digging. With a nice cool breeze the work was not too tedious. When about fifteen students are together it doesn't matter what is being done; fun will…

And so it begins…

And so it begins…

As I sit here in Snow Wolf Lodge it all seems so surreal. Less than a month ago, I was headed back to Dallas Baptist University to begin my junior year as a philosophy major, and yet here I am. I am surrounded by like-minded peers all vigorously pursuing after God's truth and a staff and faculty that are doing…
