7 Things To Remember As You Begin Your First Year of College

7

I once had this perception of college. The perception that every single college student has it all together. That while I’m still floundering, these students have their lives figured out at age eighteen.

“So what are you planning to do after you graduate?” That question. It’s everywhere. They’re just being nice, but it’s still hard. What are you supposed to say? Even if you know sort of what you’ll be doing, it’s not like you have your whole life figured out. Or, well, maybe you do. I don’t know. Wherever you are in life, I’m hoping this...

This video was made by Bridget Degnan — a journalism major and one of our best friends here at PHC — right before she arrived on campus this fall. We asked her if we could share this with you, because it was a much-needed reminder to us about what is really important — not just in questions about college, but in all the big...

Seek First The Lord

Alex and I are having an amazing (busy) time here at Patrick Henry College. Our professors are incredible. The homework is challenging, but also fascinating. Discussion amongst the students is thought-provoking. My brain is happy. Besides just the academics, the spiritual focus here invigorates me. The entire student body gathers for chapel three times a week, with Christian study groups on...
