Students gear up for annual powder puff game

IMG_2191Christopher Grossman | The Feather Online Archive

The annual powder puff game, to be hosted on May 8, will promote friendly competition amongst classes.

Those dedicated to winning have already signed up and assigned coaches for the powderpuff season. It’s time for the HS girls to put on their game face and gather together to practice drills and set plays.  Powder puff will be at the North Field, May 8 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The roles are switched for powder puff, the girls act as the players while the boys are cheerleaders for each class. Parents and family are welcome to watch the girls compete against each other.

In previous years the senior class has dominated the lower classes with its determination and experience in the game. This year senior Madison Sieb hopes to continue the winning streak.

“This is my second year in powder puff,” Sieb said. “I think that my team needs to encourage each other and continue the winning streak. To win all of our games on Friday would end my senior year on a great note.”

Sophomore Marissa Parker believes her team will do better this year because of the experience from freshman year.

“Since this is our second year, we might have a better chance of winning,” Parker said. “We need to focus on moving the ball and putting our plays to the test. This year I hope we win at least one game and if not two; I am excited to play the juniors.”

This is my second year in Powderpuff. I think that my team needs to encourage each other and continue the winning streak. To win all of our games on friday would end my senior year on a great note. — Madison Sieb, ’15

Junior Gillian Rea competes for her third time in powder puff and is looking to have a good time while trying to win.

“I think that we should focus on encouraging each other within the team to achieve a win,” Rea said. “It’s about having fun together while competing to win at the same time. I think my team could have a chance at winning if we work together and carry out plays we’ve worked on.”

Freshman Erin Wilson looks forward to playing with her class in this year’s Powderpuff.

“I am really excited, my sister Amber Wilson played it last year and had a lot of fun,” Wilson said. “I don’t know that much about football but I think our coaches, Roman Endicott and Tyler Villines, will help us. We already got together for a meeting and we are ready to have practices.”

Come out to enjoy a fun night of football games and cheer stunts to wrap up the school year.

32nd FCS Auction draws community to campus (Video)

Brown

Superintended Jeremy Brown holds a young puppy that became a hot item at the 32nd annual Fresno Christian Auction, March 14.

The Fresno Christian Schools 32nd Annual FCS auction is a highly anticipated event in which the generosity and close knit community is exemplified. Each year, families and FC enthusiasts look forward to the opportunity for a fun way to give back to the school which has touched their lives.

At the March 14 auction, attendees were given a unique auction number and were able to bid upon different items including desserts, gift cards and donated items. Once dinner was served participants enjoyed a quick trailer of the upcoming drama musical, Music Man.

Over the course of dinner the silent tables began to close and a raffle took place where attendees could win a variety of different hundred dollar prizes.

The highlight of the night, the live auction, offered a wide array of prizes. Prizes included everything from front row seats at the 2014-’15 graduation ceremony to signed helmets from Oakland Raider QB Derek Carr.

Every table at the 32nd FCS Auction sold out within weeks. The auction brought in a record breaking $140,000+. The money is used in multiple ways but is focused on filling the funding gap between tuition and the amount needed to operate the school.

Superintendent Jeremy Brown talks about his first year at the auction as superintendent. This experience has given him a new perspective on the event.

“I love interacting with the different families; it’s amazing how many people come out here to support. It’s a full house. It’s a great lively events and everyone is here to support Fresno Christian Schools,” Brown said. “I went last year and didn’t really know many people because I was just hired. But this year it’s great because I know the community a lot better.”

Economics fair 2015 recap

Economics project provides learning opportunity for students

Students flooded the campus gym on March 18, 2015, to shop at student-made booths marketing different products.

20140318-Econ-Fair-001Dawson Triplitt | The Feather Online Archive

Each year Robert Foshee’s economics classes create products to sell during an economic fair. The fair was held in the gym this year due to rainy weather.

The annual economics fair (econ fair for short) took place with around 20-student run booths.

The fair is held with the goal of helping Robert Foshee’s economics and civics students further understand their topic. Foshee shared his reasons for holding the event.

“We want to find ways to connect information from class to a real world situation. We learn about supply, demand, budgets, but it doesn’t really get ingrained until you do something with it,” Foshee said. “They have to pick a product to make, figure out a budget for it, they have to market it.” I think it’s a pretty cool way to learn it without having to read a book or listen to a lecture.”

Students in groups of two-three designed products from food, clothing and jewelry. After preparing it and marketing through posters around school and social media accounts, they sold their products in the gym. Julianna Rosik, ’16, sold boba drinks with two other students during the fair. Rosik commented on the work and learning experience.

‘The Econ fair was fun, but it was also pretty stressful,” Rosik said. “We learned about entrepreneurship during the Economics fair and the process of selling a product, and though this experience I realized that I do not want to be an entrepreneur. My group did well with our product Bubble Joy Boba drink, but when we added up our total costs, we found out our profits barely made us break even. It was fun even though we didn’t make much money.”

We learn about supply, demand, budgets, but it doesn’t really get ingrained until you do something with it. They have to pick a product to make, figure out a budget for it, they have to market it. I think it’s a pretty cool way to learn it without having to read a book or listen to a lecture. — Robert Foshee, Economics teacher.

This is the second year the fair took place in the gym. Previously, the Economics fair was set up in the lunch area. The set up of the booths changed too, in hopes of making the process more efficient for the shoppers and the students to make it easier to shop and sell. Eunsol (Dana) Kwon, ’16, commented on the arrangement.

“I thought it was really comfortable and a good idea because I could see ever item easily and I could quickly find which food I wanted,” Kwon said. “I liked every booth but my favorite was one of the cookie booths.”

The next economic fair will be held with next years’ civics students.

Junior NOTS movie: Saturday Night Live

FeatherLogoAs each class prepares their NOTS movies for debut on March 28, the junior class of 2016 believes they have what it takes to receive the overall “Best Movie” award.

Though the juniors originally planned on recreating the movie, High School Musical,” due to a lack of class participation they decided to recreate the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. So far, the class has filmed many short skits that can be regularly seen on the Tonight Show, such as “Mean Tweets.”

By recreating scenes people already know and love the class hopes to get students excited over their production.

Gillian Rea, ’16, is the co-director of the junior NOTS movie. She believes that the Jimmy Fallon show was a good choice, because it didn’t require a large number of students to be on screen at once. Rea hopes this often watched TV-series will increase the productions popularity.

“When we decided to film a recreation of the Jimmy Fallon show I was really excited,” Rea said. “I love watching his show each week, and I hope the rest of the student body is able to relate to this film and understand where the jokes are coming from. I have had an excellent group of students who are committed to this production, and their help has been invaluable. We hope all the parents and students appreciate our movie and all the work that went into creating it.”

One of the head actors of the junior NOTS film is Tyler Breedlove, ’16. Tyler has played a major role in the production of the film since it first started. He has made the effort to attend every meeting and help in any way he can. Breedlove believes his acting and natural sense of humor help the storyline flow naturally.

“When we originally started filming for High School Musical, I was cast to play the main character,” Breedlove said. “As things started changing I told the directors I still wanted to be involved and help any way I could. I was able to play a main role in many of our skits and help write them as well. I can’t wait to see our movie on the big screen at NOTS.”

Whether or not the junior class wins the award for best picture, students involved thoroughly enjoyed their experience, and look forward to making another movie next year.

All the high school movies will be on display the morning of March 28 for parents and public view, and also to vote for the awards, from 9-11 a.m. in the Green Room. For more information, contact vbelmont@fresnochristian.com.

Emily Krieghoff blood drive, March 20

Student leadership is taking a more active role in promoting student involvement throughout this school year. Please return to read about how FC students are actively learning, serving and promoting teen events on and off campus in this weekly article series.

IMG_6729FC file photo

After alumna Emily Krieghoff, ’09, was injured in an auto accident, student leadership is organizing a blood drive, March 20.

Night of the Stars (NOTS) is in two weeks, March 28, tickets are still on sale and will be sold up to the day of the event. Get your NOTS tickets soon to get a good table seat while you can!

Moving onto the next event put on by student leadership: Sadies. The event will be held on April 25 and the location is yet to be announced. The annual event is only three weeks after NOTS, so it is recommended that girls begin asking their dates out soon.

Student leadership has began talking about Sadies in class and is working on making event decisions. Although making big decisions for the event can be a stressful task, the students continue to keep the wants and needs of the entire student body in mind.

In planning activities, the goal of leadership is to include everyone in the school and consider everyone’s opinion. Even though not everyone will like the class decision, leadership still puts a lot of extra time and effort into the considerations of others.

On Friday, March 20, The California Blood Bank will be coming to FC from 1p.m. to 5 p.m. to get blood donations for Emily Krieghoff, ’09, a former FC student who was critically hurt in a car accident. Come out and show your support for the Emily Krieghoff blood drive, March 20.

Students who are 16 years of age must have parents’ permission to donate blood. However, students older than 16 years are able to come donate without parental permission. All students, regardless of age, must sign a waiver.

At the end of May, student leadership will be having ASB elections. Any student in the student body is able to run for an ASB position. It is not a requirement that students are members of leadership the year before running. Start thinking about running and your own personal goals for the school.

Look at future leadership articles to see what the ASB positions will do and require.

32nd Annual FCS Auction raises over $140,000

auctionFC file photo

The 32nd annual FC Auction raised over $140,000 for Fresno Christian, March 14.

The 32nd Annual FCS auction is a highly anticipated event in which the generosity and close knit community is exemplified. Each year, families and FC enthusiasts look forward to the opportunity for a fun way to give back to the school which has touched their lives.

At the auction March 14, attendees were given a unique auction number and were able to bid upon different items including desserts, gift cards and donated items. Once dinner was served participants enjoyed a quick trailer of the upcoming April musical, Music Man.

Over the course of dinner the silent tables began to close and a raffle took place where attendees could win a variety of different hundred dollar prizes.

The highlight of the night, the live auction, offered a wide array of prizes. Prizes included everything from front row seats at the 2014-’15 graduation ceremony to signed helmets from Oakland Raider QB Derek Carr.

Every table at the auction sold out within weeks. The auction brought in a record breaking $140,000+. The money is used in multiple ways but is focused on filling the funding gap between tuition and the amount needed to operate the school.

Dr. Sam Hinton, father to Max Hinton, shares his impressions of this years auction and remembers attending his first auction for FC.

“I started volunteering at the auction when I was a sophomore at Fresno Pacific because that’s where they used to hold the auction,” Hinton said. “The auction this year is very intimate and elegant, I love how the auction brings in money and helps the community get together and remind each other why we support the school and what a great place it is.”

I have co-chaired the auction with Pete DeGroot for at least 10 years now. My favorite memory is when my girls to attended FC and now I get to watch my grandchildren grow up here. The whole thing has been a blessing and now I can give back because my kids are grown. I expect to net over $100,000 for the good cause of this school and help all the young people who attend here. –Marvel French, grandmother to Maddie and Maicy Luginbill, and FC Board member

Former history teacher Ellen King comments on the decorations and reminisces on the numerous years she spent teaching.

“The auction is decorated beautifully, I love the tables, the centerpieces, Chinese lanterns it’s all just so beautiful,” King said. “I have attended almost every auction, I honestly cannot remember not attending one. Coming to the auction makes me really miss the kids and teaching.”

Marvel French, grandmother to Maddie and Maicy Luginbill, comments on her favorite FC memories and shares her expectations for the 32nd annual auction.

“I have co-chaired the auction with Pete DeGroot for at least 10 years now,” French said. “My favorite memory is when my girls to attended FC and now I get to watch my grandchildren grow up here. The whole thing has been a blessing and now I can give back because my kids are grown. I expect to net over $100,000 for the good cause of this school and help all the young people who attend here.”

Nancy Weis, long time auction attendee, shares her first impressions of the auction.

“I have attended the auction for about 20 years, my children graduated from here and now my grandchild attend. We want to support this school because we love it and what it stand for,” Weis said. “We have a lot of great memories here, we met a lot of great people here at FC and my children made great friends. Coming in the auction just looks beautiful and it just feels likes its going to be a great night.”

Senior FC student, Collin Winegarden, came out to the auction to perform with his drama class. The class sang and danced to a portion of the Music Man, which will be debuting in April.

“I’m here for drama because we performed a dance from our upcoming musical Music Man,” Winegarden said. “I think it went well but we still have a little room for improvement. It was a good practice run for us because now we know what we have to work on.”

Superintendent Jeremy Brown talks about his first year at the auction as Superintendent. This experience has given him a new perspective on the event.

“I love interacting with the different families, it’s amazing how many people come out here to support. Its a full house, its a great lively events and everyone is here to support Fresno Christian Schools,” Brown said. “I went last year and didn’t really know many people because I was just hired. But this year it’s great because I know the community a lot better.”

It’s St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.

Career Fair: Professionals educate students

IMG_1146Jason Swain | The Feather Online Archive

Over 10 different speakers gave presentations on career choices and how to begin preparations for them in the 4th annual Career Fair, March 11.

In hopes of better educating campus students on different career paths, FC hosted the 4th annual career fair, March 11. Students attended three sessions throughout the afternoon followed by a meet and greet in the court yard.

The session included a variety of different speakers such as ABC 30 reporter Amanda Venegas, ultrasound technician Robyn Hill, superintendent Jeremy Brown, Engineering student Danielle St. Marie, NASA project manager Suzy Dodd, nurse Laura Sherfield, speech pathologist Christie Edmondson, Detective David Fries, CEO of High Tech Homes Jay Cobb, veterinarian Todd Conlan, occupational therapist Dorothy Siqueiros, and senior gas estimator Scott Belmont.

Aspiring engineer Breanna Jennings, ’15, says that she learned about the educational requirements and qualities an engineer should possess.

“I definitely went to the engineer session, they hardly ever have an engineer come and speak so I was really excited to learn about what it takes to be in that profession,” Jennings said. “It was awesome that she [/fusion_builder_column]

[Danielle St. Marie] is an alumni and was willing to come back and give us really helpful information.”

Venegas gave a session and Claire Kollenkark, ’16, looks forward to career day every year.

“Amanda’s session was really fun,” Kollenkark said. “She is like a local celebrity and she took time out of her day to teach us a thing or two about what she does. Now that I’m a junior, I realized how soon I’m going to be picking a career and it’s great that the school cares enough to put something like this on with so many different people to chose from.”

My favorite presentation was probably the veterinarian,” Counts said. “He was very friendly and not intimidating. He just laid all the information out and told us that this is what you choose to get into if you pursue this career. He helped me because I’ve been looking down the veterinarian path.  — Freshman Celeste Counts

Occupational Therapist Dorothy Siqueiros urges students to get a jump start on their career and connect with other people for the best educational and financial options available.

“I know that college has gotten really expensive over the years and I really hope kids out there know that there are people to talk to that have gone or are going through the whole process of earning their degrees,” Siqueiros said. “Talk to people and find out what process is going to work best for you. And I tell people all the time to go observe the job they wish to pursue while they’re still in high school, you can either rule it out or keep looking into it.”

Laura Sherfield, a nurse at Valley Children’s Hospital gives her advice to teens and insight on how her passion for nursing began.

“I first decided to pursue a career in nursing when I was really young,” Sherfield said. “My mom was a nurse also so I grew up around it and fell in love with it from the beginning. I tend to have more of a compassionate personality. I would advise you high school kids to get involved early in a hospital, job shadow, become an intern, and get a job as soon as possible to gain as much experience as possible.”

CEO of Forward Advantage Chris Roggenstein is happy with the diversity and serving opportunities the annual career day holds.

“I liked the diversity of the student service projects,” Roggenstein said. “It let students serve in a manner that they were gifted and hopefully with an attitude of serving God while serving their fellow man.”

Senior PG&E gas estimator Scott Belmont comments on the success that hard work and dedication could potentially bring to your career.

“I am a gas transition design engineer,” Belmont said. “I started working for PG&E 30 years ago on the end of a shovel and gradually worked my way up and took a lot of different positions and here I am now. When Michelle Warkentin called me to speak, I agreed because it’s great that people come in and give students a variety of different careers to look in to.”

Freshman Celeste Counts shared that she was drawn to the veterinarian in particular, due to her own interests in the trade.

“My favorite presentation was probably the veterinarian,” Counts said. “He was very friendly and not intimidating. He just laid all the information out and told us that this is what you choose to get into if you pursue this career. He helped me because I’ve been looking down the veterinarian path.”

Blood drive honors FC alumna in recovery (VIDEO)

gabyAlexis Kalugin | The Feather Online Archive

The FCS community is again gathering support in a blood drive for Emily Krieghoff, March 20. Please donate for an Eagle alumna.

In the late hours of Saturday Feb. 21, FC alumni Molly Griffin and best friend Emily Krieghoff were victims of a fatal DUI accident. Molly Griffin was killed on site while Krieghoff is currently in recovery at Fresno Community Hospital.

Due to the essential role that blood donations have played in Krieghoff’s recovery and because of the tragic nature of the incident, the FC community will be partnering with Central California Blood Center in the first Emily Krieghoff Blood Drive, March 20.

The idea for the event was first purposed by Leadership and Economics teacher, Robert Foshee after Krieghoff’s mother suggested a blood drive. Foshee says that the event will provide an opportunity for both FC alumni and current students and staff members to come together as a community and support the Krieghoff family during a time in which they need it most.

“I think it’s a great way to give back to the community especially for our own alumni who have been touched by that,” Foshee said. “It’s something that you can do that’s easy. We’re also going to have a place where we can write messages and cards and if you want to help out the family during that time too there’s opportunities to do that. As a school it’s an opportunity to come together as a family.”

The Central Blood Center mobile will be stationed in the high school parking lot from 1-5 p.m., equipped with trained and experienced personnel. All potential donors are required to be in relatively stable health upon arrival at the mobile and must weigh at least 110lbs and be 16 years of age or older.

All student participants regardless of age, are required to obtain and present a signed permission slip upon arrival at the mobile. Permission slips are available for free download at Central Blood Center’s website. Students must also schedule an appointment for their donation prior to March 20 via email with either Foshee or school secretary, Vicky Belmont.

Central Blood Center holds all rights to deny donors participation if they fail to meet the before mentioned requirements or present any number of complicating factors such as abnormally high blood pressure or body temperature.

According to Central Blood Center, the process of blood donation works in a simple four step process. Firstly upon arrival participants must register with the use of a photo ID and social security number. These two items are required to register and those who do not posses proper identification will not be admitted into the Mobil.

The experience was fun and I felt important because I was giving to someone who needed it. I wanted to do it because I did it last year and I had a good time and wanted to do it again. I would encourage anyone who is able to participate because it is an easy and fast way to help people who are in need. –Senior Breanna Jennings

Secondly, Central Blood Center personnel will conduct a brief physical check up, measuring blood pressure and heart rate in order to assess the individual’s personal health. All health information that donors share with the personnel will be kept confidential.

The withdrawal of one pint of blood usually takes no more than 15 minutes and is a painless process. After completion participants will receive a T-shirt, a sweet treat and be encouraged to rest for a short amount of time before resuming daily activities.

Leadership member Breanna Jennings, ’15, previously donated at FC’s annual Max Hinton Blood Drive. She says that the opportunity provides a hands on and practical way to give back to the community and reach out to those who need love the most.

“The experience was fun and I felt important because I was giving to someone who needed it,” said Jennings. “I wanted to do it because I did it last year and I had a good time and wanted to do it again. I would encourage anyone who is able to participate because it is an easy and fast way to help people who are in need.”

Macy Mascarenas, ’16, knew both girls on a more personal level through her older sister. Mascarenas believes that the blood drive is a way to honor the memory of Molly Griffin and the generous sacrifice that saved Krieghoff’s life.

“I think the blood drive is a really good idea,” Mascarenas said. “These are young girls who went here and made such an impact on this school. I think the least we can do as a school is to dedicate it to them and to honor them.”

Update: Emily Krieghoff is scheduled to be released from Fresno Community Hospital, March 18.

To obtain permission slips or learn more information about donor qualifications, visit www. Centralvalleybloodcenter.com.

LETTER: Superintendent cites FCS Auction legacy

IMG_5665 copyFeather file photo

Superintendent Jeremy Brown.

Dear Editor:

As our community gets ready for the 32nd Annual FCS Auction, I find myself in awe of how Fresno Christian Schools come together.

For weeks, donations have been coming into our office. Homemade crafts from students, signed sports memorabilia and even a puppy! It reminds me of Mark 12 about the widow’s offering. Our school is full of people that give of themselves with their time, talents and treasures.

All of the giving from our auction helps Fresno Christian Schools continue the legacy of providing an excellent Christian Education for over 38 years.

I am looking forward to meeting those who attend the 32nd FCS Auction and forge lasting relationships throughout the month of March.

The FCS annual Auction is a great opportunity for new members of our community, like me, get a chance to meet and have fellowship with people that have supported FCS Auction legacy for decades.

College trip to SoCal, explore universities

photo (17)Michelle Warkentin, academic advisor

Campus juniors and seniors traveled for a college trip to SoCal to visit universities, March 3-4.

Juniors and seniors took their annual College Trip, March 3-4. Ten students attended along with Academic advisor Michelle Warkentin, Andrea and Scott Donaghe. The group visited four different universities in southern California along with a famous ice cream parlor for dinner.

The first college the group visited was the University of Southern California. The school first opened in 1880 to 53 students. The students were amazed by the architecture and the size of the campus.

While at USC, Morgan Miller, ’16, fell in love with the atmosphere.

“The campus was really beautiful,” Miller said. “It was very spacious and the buildings were outstanding. I also really liked the food they offered on campus. Everyone was very welcoming and nice.”

Andrew Moore, ’16, although a faithful USC fan, knows the price makes attending the school difficult.

“I grew up as a big fan of USC,” Moore said. “I thought the campus itself was awesome. However, the price makes attending the school unlikely for me. But I will still always be a fan of the university.”

The second college the group attended was Azusa Pacific University. The group was able to meet up with alumnus Elora Hargis, ’14, before touring the campus. APU was the first Christian campus the group visited.

The Christian atmosphere of Azusa Pacific, along with their gym, seemed important to Caleb Goodale, ’16.

“I liked how the school offered chapels and worship sessions,” Goodale said. “Also I wasn’t expecting their gym to be that big. It was probably one of the nicest gyms I’ve seen. However, I didn’t care for the fact that you were only allowed to miss 10 chapels.”

Junior Bailey Brogan did not like the way the campus was set up. He also did not care for the atmosphere the campus offered.

“I didn’t really like how the school was split up into a west campus and east campus. Although they offered a trolley ride, it still seemed inconvenient,” Brogan said. “Also, the west campus seemed sort of cramped. But we had just come from USC so Azusa didn’t really have a chance.”

My favorite part of the college trip would have to be going to Farrells for dinner. It was like walking into an old diner and definitely made you feel like you were taken back to a different time period. It was a great bonding time with my fellow classmates and we left there with many memories to share. –Junior Timothy Nyberg

That night, the group went to Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurant for dinner. Majority of the group agreed that dinner was the best part of the trip. Many of the students had participated in Kids Day earlier that morning and were running on their last bit of energy, which made the night that much more enjoyable.

After waiting an hour, the group was seated and the waitress, DeAnna, set the tone for the evening with her animated and sassy personality. The group decided to celebrate Brogan’s belated birthday, which included him going to “boot camp” once he finished his meal.

Timothy Nyberg, ’16, found the night very enjoyable and a dinner he would not soon forget.

“My favorite part of the college trip would have to be going to Farrells for dinner,” Nyberg said. “It was like walking into an old diner and definitely made you feel like you were taken back to a different time period. It was a great bonding time with my fellow classmates and we left there with many memories to share.”

The next morning, although tired, the group woke up bright and early to visit the next two universities. First on the list was the University of California Riverside.

Senior Justin Porter enjoyed the tour and learning about the school’s different research projects.

“I liked how the tour guide spoke about the research that their science program does,” Porter said. “I thought their study on the mantis shrimp and that spider with the golden silk was interesting. Also, the way they mapped the citrus DNA was pretty neat.”

The college trip is important because it allows students the opportunity to visit college campuses outside of our local area. For some students this is their first campus visit out of Fresno. I try to pick different types of schools so students are exposed to both large and small campuses, public and private. –Michelle Warkentin, academic advisor

While disappointed with one of the schools programs, Elise Winegarden, ’15, thought the campus was nice.

“I thought the campus was beautiful,” Winegarden said. “There were plenty of trees and open space outside. The orange trees smelled lovely too! However, their nursing program isn’t one of their stronger programs so this wasn’t the school for me.”

The final school the group visited was California Baptist University. There, they met up with alumnus Annalise Rosik who spoke about what she has enjoyed so far.

The first part of the campus that the group explored was the cafeteria, or the “caf”. CBU has the third best cafeteria in California and the students enjoyed its all-you-can-eat policy. Collin Winegarden, ’15, saw the “caf” as one of the schools best features.

“Obviously I loved the cafeteria and unlimited food!” Winegarden said. “The recreational center was pretty awesome too. I loved the variety of activities you could do there. But what I loved most was the campus itself. I thought it was the perfect size with plenty of trees.”

Although he enjoyed the cafeteria, Joshua Carter, ’16, feels like the university still needs to build a stronger reputation.

“As a school, CBU is great, however, it doesn?t have a reputation which is one of its problems,” Carter said. “It needs to build a stronger reputation and one way to do that is hiring better professors and create strength in its different fields. I think by doing that, they will be known as a great Christian college and just a great college in general.”

Academic advisor, Michelle Warkentin, has been in charge of the annual college trip since it first began. She sees it as beneficial for the students who take it and enjoys seeing the students experience college life.

“The college trip is important because it allows students the opportunity to visit college campuses outside of our local area,” Warkentin said. “For some students this is their first campus visit out of Fresno. I try to pick different types of schools so students are exposed to both large and small campuses, public and private.”

“In my opinion the best part of the trip was seeing students walk through the massive libraries, peek into the lecture halls, and eat lunch together on the campuses. It was neat to see them experiencing college campuses first hand and open their eyes to the possibilities of what lies ahead of them after high school.”

Overall, everyone who took the trip enjoyed it and felt it was worth its while. They will be taking the trip again next year for any juniors or seniors that are interested.

BRIEF: Career Fair scheduled, March 11

Kylie Bell

Almond farmer John Nale is one of 12 speakers at this year’s Career Fair, March 11.

The FC Career Fair is a yearly event allowing students, especially juniors and seniors, to learn about a variety of different careers. This event has been continued for four years now, and is on March 11.

Lled by Academic Advisor Michelle Warkentin, the half day of instruction provides exposure for students to learn about careers that they may be interested in pursuing.

Warkentin, having started this event, encourages students to use this opportunity for their future well being.

“It is always nice for students to hear from professionals firsthand about the career they have chosen,” Warkentin said. “This allows students to understand what a real day looks like in their shoes and will hopefully expose them to both the good and bad aspects of the job so they understand what they are potentially getting into early on before it is too late.”

There are a number of speakers attending this event, they are as follows:

Session 1, 12:50-1:20:
Amanda Venegas-Reporter-ABC 30 (601/603)

Scott Belmont- Senior Gas Estimator (Engineering/Estimating)-PG&E (621/623)

A handful of students are attending, but even though the number is limited, most students think that the fair is beneficial. Nick Fontes, ’15, shares his opinions of the importance of career fair.

“No, I am not attending the career fair this year, and I haven’t before,” Fontes said. “But, I think it is very important to attend career fair because it is an opportunity to gauge your interests in various fields. This will hopefully help you find out what you want to do in the future.”

Monday: Wednesday Schedule
Tuesday: Tuesday Schedule
Wednesday: Half Day Schedule, followed by career fair in the afternoon
