“Kristin made it to a new coast and a new terrain. Kristin saw diversity. Diversity in people, T-shirts, food, dogs, and hairstyles. Should people really be wearing winter coats and scarves and boots and stockings in early September? She rationalizes it, realizing that the weather is in the mid-50s. She witnessed a powerful sense of expression, people speaking out without using words; they spoke with their body language, their bumper stickers, their cardboards signs asking for loose change, and in their eccentricities.”
This is a photo journal (there are some words too) about location. I’ve lived in New England my whole life, and I adore it here, so I’d like to share some of my favorite places with you. My hope is that this will get other people started in their search for things to do and places to see around Gordon. Take my advice, if you want; but even if you think I’m crazy, explore this area for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
There are several reasons I chose to go to France for the year: to reconnect with my native culture, to attain a better grasp of the language, and to expose myself to a different way of living and learning for an extended period of time. This photo journal contains some of my favorite things about my semester abroad.

Tanja Butler, associate professor of art, loves having her students use their skills for service. “God gifted us for service to extend His kingdom for access of creative life,” she said. “I hope [the Gordon students] gain a good learning experience on how needs can be met by using their skills and engaging with the community who have needs."
