What is one resource students should know about?   Take your professor to lunch!

Favorite class and why?   New Testament with Holly Beers. I love the way she shapes her class around the overarching story of the Kingdom of God, and how Jesus is the beginning of the "Age to Come". Everything is taught in the context of being a first century Jew or Gentile, and we are able to see the incredible impact of Jesus' teachings magnified through contextual knowledge - and her wicked sense of humor!

What should people bring and what should they NOT bring? Bring: storage containers to put in your closet/under your bed. Don't bring: too many mugs, throw pillows or cleaning supplies.
