Why the Purdue Collegiate Ministry: The PCM is made up of some of the most welcoming and fun-loving people I have ever met, and everyone in it just has this unexplainable joy and love for Christ that I wanted to share in and be a part of. I have learned so much from every single member of it and my life will never be the same because of the PCM. It really makes me feel like I have a place to belong and call home at Purdue, and I love how we feel like a family in that everyone is so incredibly supportive and has each other’s backs in whatever situation or struggle they are facing. I have learned what it truly means to be a completely committed follower of Christ from this organization and am challenged daily in my walk with Christ by being a part of the PCM.

What’s one piece of advice you would give your fellow students: Trust in God with everything you have and I promise that he will never let you down. Giving up control of your life is one of the scariest but best things you can ever possibly do, and that will help you have the most fulfilling and joy-filled college career you can. Also never let anyone dull your sparkle.

Why the Purdue Collegiate Ministry? When I came to the call out last year, I expected to be intimidated by a large group of people and not really meet anyone like at most of the other call outs I had been to. However, when I sat down, all I saw was a family and not one that just looked out for each other, but also reached out to me. I met four people that night that really cared that I was there. As I kept coming, I felt more and more like part of the family. Living in Virginia, it’s so nice to have a home and family right here at Purdue.

What’s one piece of advice you would give your fellow students? Do things! Take opportunities to do things for others. Make a new friend in the process. Take opportunities for yourself, yes, but within that, do something for someone else. When you do this, do it not for you, not for that person, but do it for God! He is all that matters.
