India: Summer 2006 | Kandyce Kingsley
As an international affairs major at Gordon, I was required to leave the country for a minimum of 6 weeks. As a fine arts minor, I wanted to go somewhere that would inspire me to create and see beauty. I certainly found the right place.

CMCC Lynn Mural Project | Painting I
"In being able to give my art to others, art has taken on a whole new depth of beauty and meaning. As the mural came together into a beautiful whole, all of the prayers over the entire semester seemed to have culminated into a visual prayer--a prayer of peace, justice and equality over Lynn."

A Campus Photographer's Photo Journal | Daniel Nystedt
I am a fourth-generation Gordon graduate. I can recall thumbing through my parents' and grandparents' old Gordon yearbooks before I could even read, trying to decipher the stories that the photos had to tell. Now I have been given the opportunity to photograph the people and places of Gordon College. It is my hope that my photos speak to whoever views them, just as the photos in my parents' and grandparents' yearbooks once spoke to me.

La Vida: August 2006 | Caitlin Snyder
I spent the majority of the La Vida trip kayaking on two separate lakes, working my arms and burning my skin, but I fell in love with every second of it…give or take a couple minutes.

Painting I Self-Portrait Assignment: Fall 2006
The Introduction to Painting Class was assigned to paint self portraits which took into account the expressive potential of pose and gesture, as well as the symbolism inherent in props and setting. The 30" x 40" portraits were displayed in the mezzanine of the Jenks Library.

China 2006 | Katie Amico
When I set foot on Gordon College's campus my freshman year, I had no idea what lay ahead of me. Very soon in the semester, the opportunity to co-lead a trip to China for five weeks during the summer was presented to me. Our team went to China in order to teach English to sophomores at a university in Xi'an and to work in an orphanage. The trip had its unique set of difficulties, but I walked away having experienced a greater part of God's creation and am now beginning to understand what it really means to love my neighbor.

Ethiopia 2006 | Sarah Childs
So many words come to mind…words such as color, beauty, radiance, love, peace…contrasted by pain, suffering, persecution, and need - but most importantly, God's faithfulness.

South Africa Seminar Pilot: Summer 2006 | Timothy Lewis
Much of my interest in the South Africa Seminar was the rumor of its story: a mosaic of cultures, languages and religions coexisting in the shadow of a history that divided and destroyed human lives. Having returned from six weeks in South Africa, I can now say there is no rumor, rather a reality.
