ASP Fall 2015 is off to a great start with students from Azusa Pacific University, Biola University, Gordon College, Judson University, Messiah College, Taylor University, University of Northwestern – St. Paul, Vanguard University of Southern California, Warner Pacific College, Westmont College, and William Jessup University. Especially exciting this semester is the launch of our new Strategic Communication study track! Internships start week after next, but until then, students are exploring their new home; discussing themes of justice, power and poverty, shalom, and faithful practice; serving their community; and building relationships.
We were blessed with two wonderful student event coordinators this semester. Alexander Archuleta (a senior at Whitworth University) and Stephanie Grossoehme (a junior at Olivet Nazarene University) planned activities that wonderfully benefited the community life in the Dellenback Center. These events included a progressive dinner in which the students moved to different apartments to eat each course of the meal, a Halloween party, and a Christmas party!

Dessert for the progressive dinner was served on the rooftop deck!
Students took a creative approach and integrated their studies into the pumpkin-carving contest.
Stephanie and Alexander planned Paper Plate Awards as the last group activity of the semester. Stephanie and Alexander are pictured here with their awards!
