CU Nova Leader Interns with Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs, a premier investment banking, securities, and investment management group, is known for offering a handful of remarkable college-aged students a grueling internship where they often log eighty hours per week. The intensity of these positions is notorious, allowing only a select bunch of top students to say, “I got Goldman” when they come through the recruiting season for finance positions.

Greg Epstein Is 'Good Without God'

Harvard has appointed Greg Epstein as the new Chief Chaplain; he is an atheist. The hiring has elucidated ire from conservative institutions gawking at how someone who believes God does not exist could possibly be the president of such a spiritually-minded, albeit diverse, group of individuals. Meanwhile, others have congratulated Harvard for their willingness to represent their student body and acknowledge atheism as a valid spiritual pursuit.

Junior Is Thankful for the Impact of CU Vox

When choosing which colleges to apply to, one of my requirements was the presence of a good, healthy, strong Christian community on campus. Through research of Christian Union Vox online and a conversation with a past Dartmouth professor, I clearly saw that the Vox community was exactly what I was searching for. And when I arrived at Dartmouth, all my assumptions were assured. I showed up to an ice cream social on the lawn of Tuck Drive, and quickly sensed a healthy environment that was part of the body of Christ.

CU Lumine Prepares for Fall Semester

Despite the challenges posed by conducting Bible courses and other events online or with strict social distancing guidelines this past academic year, CU Lumine, Christian Union’s ministry at Columbia, was full of prayer pods, evangelism workshops, and Bible courses - all of which took place online. While the ministry center was open for occasional one-on-one meetings and small groups of under nine participants, Zoom meetings were the primary way students connected with each other.

Catholic Author Weighs In on Students' Pursuit of Happiness 

Cognitive scientist Laurie Santos has a thought question for you: if you could live in a simulated reality where you are perfectly happy, would you knowingly choose it over a less-happy real life? Santos, who is a psychology professor at Yale, has been studying the nature of happiness—how we get it, what makes us happy, and how psychology directly impacts our happiness—for years.

Looking to the Early Church for Inspiration 

The concept of “seeking” God is often attributed to individuals who are interested in the Christian faith but not yet believers. But biblically speaking, seeking God is what Christians do—Christians pursue intimacy with the Lord, knowledge of Him, His guidance and presence, His blessing.

Scholars Make a Compelling Case for Dismissal

The legal right to abortion may soon come to an end. In July, Mississippi submitted a brief to the Supreme Court arguing that the Constitution makes no room for legal abortion and stating that all life must be protected. In light of this, the state is asking for two rulings—Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey—to be overturned, effectively removing the current rulings that allow for the right to abortion.

CU Vox Shares Good News at Dartmouth with Blog

At the beginning of the 2019-20 academic year at Dartmouth, the usual excitement surrounding a new semester was dampened by COVID-19 restrictions; only freshmen and juniors were on campus for the fall, and ministry and other organizational activities were limited to zoom or small in-person meetings. In the midst of this uncertainty, Paul Jeon ’21, a leader with CU Vox at Dartmouth, stepped up to create blog content that focused on the sure promises of God in scripture and the question, “Who Does God Say I Am?”

Where Does Our Help Come From?

Editor’s note: This article was reprinted with permission from Cornell Claritas, “an ecumenical, interdenominational Christian publication that was founded on the hope of starting thoughtful Christian conversations within the academic community at Cornell University.”There are few things that elicit such pure joy within me as the first bite of boneless wings with Boom Boom sauce do, under the fluorescent lights of a crowded Sheetz dining room. For those unfortunate enough to have never encountered this fine dining establishment, Sheetz is the East Coast’s premier location for gourmet gas station food. What’s so special about a gas station, you might ask?
