Even though it is hard to believe, we have entered another year. While it was very enjoyable, Christmas break was a busy time for me. What with two unit drills at Grissom Air Reserve Base, numerous visits with family, and the constant tasks which come with caring for a live-in grandfather, it was quite easy to sigh with relief once I got back to Grace College for class on the 12th of January.
As I write, the Student Veteran’s Organization at Grace is already busy coordinating new things for 2012, and the Veteran’s Affairs Student Services team continues to research new ways in which they can aid military and dependent students. Both organizations learned much from their experiences of 2011, and both have been making changes to the way that they operate. I am optimistic that Grace College’s military students will come into their own in 2012, as we continue striving to offer the most beneficial and user-friendly military college experience possible.
It is with pleasure that I welcome you back to another semester at Grace College, and I hope and pray that 2012 will be a Christ centered year for you. Check back soon for a list of what we have planned for the coming year!
