Opinion: Shared spaces and difficult decisions: Take ownership and strive to thrive in housing

  Choosing where to live in college can be difficult. You make a decision in April, or perhaps even sooner, that will directly impact your life for nine months. The choice made one evening determines the people you will see each day. In the case of PGB and WWF, it determines who you will share […]

Devotional: Shared laughter

By Ann O. Lawson I believe laughter has the power to connect us. I’ll run into someone and perhaps can’t remember her name or where we met, but I’ll recall that we shared laughter.

Devotional: Treasures and Education for Eternity

Show me where you spent your money last year, and I’ll show you what you value. If you could produce a paper trail of all the transactions where you spent money in 2015, what would we find? Late-night trips to Taco Bell? Gas for your car? Movie tickets? If you’re a student at Malone, we […]

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly[a] with your God. Micah 6:8 (NIV) When I was in college, I lost a lot of sleep over trying to figure out God’s “perfect plan” for my life. What if…I was […]

Devotional: Psalm 3 by Dr. Jay Case

Psalm 3 can be a strange one for us.  “O Lord, how many are my foes,” it begins.  David is on the run, with people trying to kill him.  He has lost his kingdom, and his own son, who grabbed power, is trying to take his life. I don’t know about you, but there haven’t […]

Social Norms

Breaking Social Norms Destroys Normality

  Society has millions of informally established rules that are simply learned from interacting in a particular social context. Social norms represent the glue that holds together the normality of our day to day lives. Since social norms are usually expected and followed, it was very difficult to find anyone to participate in the making […]
