Sophomore Scholars met their Faculty Mentors, viewed a PowerPoint presentation given by Center for Faith and Learning Founding Director Dr. Beth Hassel, PBVM, DMin, then enjoyed a light supper in and around Corr Hall Lounge and Chapel. Together with the entire faith and learning community, Faith and Learning Scholars and Mentors have the opportunity to share in a three-years long faith journey, reading and discussing four articles a year relating to the intersection of faith and reason while enjoying dinner. The 2016-2017 community includes 101 sophomore, junior and senior scholars and 65 faculty mentors from all colleges of the University.
Senior Scholars Say:
"Our dinner dialogues were always like a breath of fresh air for me -- they helped me take a step back and consider my faith, something that I don't always make time for in my day-to-day life. Those moments became very important to me over the past three years."
"I have had the opportunity to meet a group of people all with the same focus of school and integrated faith. I never thought I would be able to connect with these students (and faculty) in one setting. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to experience faith and learning these three years."
"I'm a more confident person. Not just in my faith life, though that's certainly true, but I feel like a more well-rounded individual for having participated in this program. I'm more open. I'm more comfortable talking about myself and my experiences."
