    to flourish in a breadth of vocational roles for the sake of the common good Opus intends to serve Wheaton students faculty and off campus constituents by hosting activities and programs such as an undergraduate vocational discernment program a faculty fellowship program church workshops and various public speakers and events On Saturday January 24 Opus hosted its first official event to kick off launch week Nancy Writebol a missionary and Ebola survivor and Admiral Tim Ziemer coordinator of the President s Malaria Initiative spoke to an audience of students faculty and community members about their callings to service The rest of the week was filled with one fantastic event after another including panels on solutions for poverty alleviation entrepreneurship and innovation a public discussion on faith and vocation and a lecture and interview with members of the Redeemer Presbyterian Gotham Fellowship On Tuesday afternoon I attended a panel called Creativity Wanted How Business Mathematics and the Hard Sciences Need Artists and Other Creative Thinkers Steve Garber Dr Kristen Page Phil Vischer and Mark Woodworth each spoke brilliantly on how art and science are never separate within their respective professions but are integral parts of their work Mark Woodworth summed up the discussion well by saying We need art for life and vice versa He posed the question How can I serve the needs of others especially needs for truth beauty and good On Wednesday evening I had another opportunity to learn from people who are answering that question in their own lives Katherine Leary Alsdorf and the Gotham Fellows kindly sat down with students to answer questions in a speed networking format where groups rotated every 20 minutes I thought this was a great way for students to engage with people who could give invaluable advice and insight into the professional world beyond Wheaton Opus Launch Week came to a close on Thursday January 29th Junior Zach Kahler director of the Opus Student Strategy Team described his own excitement for the new institute I ve really appreciated the opportunity I ve had to participate in Opus s debut It s been great to see a movement on Wheaton s campus that emphasizes the truth of God calling us to a broad range of vocational fields for his glory Sarah Britton Miller 17 is a sophomore studying communications and international relations Photos from top Mark Woodworth explaining a wood photography piece during the Creativity Wanted panel Phil Vischer speaking during the Creativity Wanted panel Nancy and David Writebol Credits Zach Erwin 17 Posted February 12 2015 Tags Campus My Wheaton The Liberal Arts Weekly All Campus Prayer Posted by Katrina Burlet 15 God is stirring a passion for prayer on this campus This I have been told is customary before God brings revival to Wheaton So as multiple prayer groups have been popping up in Smith Traber Hall on Monday nights at the Chaplain s Office early Tuesday mornings in Williston Hall on Wednesday nights and at off campus houses on

    here Talk to Your Academic Advisers Because I want to specialize in medieval Scandinavian artwork there are not a lot of travel abroad posters hanging in Lower Beamer student center that apply to me I had to do some research before I found there was a perfect opportunity for me to study at the University of Oslo As often is the case for study abroad finding the funding to go is just as important as finding a place to go It was with the help of my academic adviser that I learned where and how to look for these funding opportunities Your academic advisers have likely applied for these kinds of things their whole career and will have excellent instincts and advice Stephen Westich 15 is an art history major from Waynesburg Pennsylvania Apply to Wheaton and learn more about their financial aid packages on the financial aid website Posted January 26 2015 Tags Financial Aid Global and Experiential Learning My Wheaton The Liberal Arts Video Opera Music Theater at Wheaton Posted by Hannah Benson 15 As someone who can t remember a time before she was involved in singing for other people it s perhaps unsurprising that vocal performance major Hannah Benson 15 has found a home in Wheaton s Conservatory of Music I love the way that studying voice makes me feel Hannah says I m creating the sound physically and it s a very rewarding major to me because of that As one of the lead roles in Wheaton s Opera Music Theater production of Dido and Aeneas Hannah has had ample opportunity to exercise her vocal talent in a community of fellow artists I love the people in the conservatory she says Because there are so few of us and we re constantly in the same building we get to know each other really well It becomes a really close knit community From Hannah s perspective this community includes professors too Working closely with well trained professionals is made even more beneficial when paired with small class sizes and ensembles in which all participants know one another by name It s really rewarding in both the academic and emotional aspects Hannah says It s been awesome Hannah Benson 15 is a senior studying vocal performance in the Conservatory of Music Learn more about her dreams and aspirations on her author bio page Posted January 23 2015 Tags Conservatory Campus My Wheaton Student Activities The Arts Video Subscribe to Posts Author Profile Students share an inside look at Wheaton College Contributors Alex Soholt 16 Alley Kammer 16 Alyssa Paulsen 14 Amy Early 16 Andrew Cuthbert PsyD 18 Andrew Sedlacek 15 Ann Szeliga 17 Anna Morris 16 Aseye Agamah 16 Beau Westlund 14 Brielle Lisa 18 Catherine Holt 15 Charlotte Hallstrom 16 Charlston Ong 19 Clementine Kane 18 Corinne Elliot 15 and Sarah Macolino 15 Dana Henderson 17 Daniel Tannous 16 David Batdorf 16 David Robinson 15 Elena Miles 15 Elliot Leung 17 Emma Schaafsma 17 Emmanuel Ndolimana

    I truly believe humility is something we including the church could use a lot more of in our lives Now that we have the grant and we are really digging into the project I can see that my hopes are the same as they were before I entered the program I hope my research furthers our knowledge about how we can better honor and serve those around us no matter how hard it may be to find common ground with them I hope my research can give a voice to people that do not often have their voice heard Finally my greatest hope is that the research will be about walking alongside and helping people every step of the way Andrew Cuthbert Psy D 18 recently received a Templeton Foundation grant for his church humility intervention study and is completing his clinical hours at the Wheaton College Counseling Center Photos from top Andrew goes to work at the Wheaton College Counseling Center two to three days per week Andrew with classmates Grace Schuler Meghan Cahill and instructor Dr Ward Davis after their presentation at a Christian Association for Psychological Studies conference Andrew and his wife Melissa welcome the new cohort of Psy D students to Wheaton at their home near campus Learn more about Wheaton s Psy D program on their website and how to apply Posted December 10 2014 Tags My Wheaton My 1 2 1 Experience Posted by Aseye Agamah 16 One of the most rewarding things I have done this year is to become a 1 2 1 leader as part of a program through the Office of Multicultural Development As a 1 2 1 leader my job is to be a resource to minority first year or transfer students at Wheaton 1 2 1 leaders make sure their 1 2 1 students know they have someone who is available to listen hang out study with pray with and help them adjust to life at Wheaton College is such a unique phase of life and the change from senior year of high school to the first year of college is a dramatic transition Being a minority adds an extra layer of complexities at Wheaton there aren t many people that look like you or think like you understand your background or even share the same humor as you 1 2 1 leaders provide a safe place for these students to express how they feel and know they are not alone College is hard Being at Wheaton is hard Being a person of color at a predominantly white institution is hard But I believe that these hardships are meant to ultimately bring us together we don t have to navigate these unfamiliar waters alone 1 2 1 provides a space where people can connect and begin to cultivate their own identity Acceptance of that identity ultimately helps us begin to understand how best to interact with the people around us regardless of race class gender or other differences

    Student Activities The Arts Beyond the Turf Posted by Kendall Eitreim 15 For Kendall Eitreim 15 it s hard to imagine what her undergrad life would have looked like without the Wheaton women varsity soccer team Being on the team has 100 percent completely shaped my Wheaton experience Eitreim says While she has been playing soccer since she was two she senses a real difference playing on a team made up of Christian peers God has been so faithful in using people on the team using the coaches to be instrumental and encouraging And it s fun to do life alongside the girls Eitreim believes that living together and offering friendship and support off the field allows the team to work better together once their cleats hit the turf Though she knew from day one that she wanted to be a communication major Eitreim enjoys taking classes from both inside and outside the department that she believes will prepare her for life beyond Wheaton I just take those classes because I enjoy them and because the professors are wonderful The unifying thread that connects Eitreim s life as a student and an athlete is the way people at Wheaton whether in classes or in the locker room seek to emulate Christ in their daily lives There are people I ve been surprised by again and again who have really shown the love of Christ There s something about that that I think is very unique to Wheaton Kendall Eitreim 16 is a communication major Learn more about Wheaton soccer on the Wheaton Thunder website Twitter Wheaton Thunder and Instagram Wheaton Thunder Posted October 17 2014 Tags Spiritual Life My Wheaton Student Activities The Liberal Arts Video Athletics Our Faces Are Still Illuminated My HoneyRock Passage Experience Posted by Brielle Lisa 18 The tiki torches flickering light reflected off each face illuminating them as we weaved through the woods and up HoneyRock s ski hill At the top I gathered with about 150 of my fellow freshmen around a giant bonfire Its sparks leaped upward to the vast Wisconsin night sky beckoning my eyes to follow The stars were magnificent We proceeded to lift our voices up to the Creator of those very stars and then participated in a revitalizing word of prayer This was the beginning of our Passage into the Wheaton community The Camp Track of Wheaton s Northwoods Passage Program enhanced my transition into college in many ways I will focus on one Friendship After that large group gathering on ski hill we split into our cabins Initially I viewed my cabin as a motley group We were introverted and extroverted individuals morning people and not exactly morning people athletic and artsy people from Korea Thailand Hong Kong Illinois and New Jersey We were Cabin 12 To my surprise and pleasure we overcame our differences quite naturally and started building deep relationships with each other We became very much like a family We ate meals together overcame challenge
