This past weekend for about 5 days, some of our 10-12th graders took a trip to several many different colleges such as Cal poly, UC Santa Barbara, Westmont, Pepperdine, Masters College, and Hollywood Art Institute. We got to experience the different vibes of the colleges and had to imagine if we could see ourselves going to those specific places.
Time flies by quickly and we need to start thinking about our futures. One thing we need to remember as we get older is to consistently reflect on our lives to see if we are living it like Christ did even when we go to college. As we go through our lives we have so many choices to make and need to discern what God wants for us and try to make our decisions around him.
The colleges were extremely nice and each had their specific criteria but everyone has a different taste. The hotels were nice and Universal Studios made me think that we should make our life known to others such as the movie stars and it was amazing being able to experience that too. As Daniel 12:3 says, And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
Thanks to RCS for giving us the opportunity to explore these exciting options.
