Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

Dr. Bitner welcomed the new students.

On Wednesday, chapel time was devoted to welcoming the new students via Convocation.   Faculty wore regalia and lined the center aisle.  The new students entered to applause and sat in the first several rows.  Returning students and staff filled many of the remaining chairs.  Once the faculty made their way to the stage, Dr. Bitner read some of the history of convocation, and we sang a hymn.  Luke Pauli, the Student Senate President, gave a heart-felt charge to the new students and asked them to live each day as if it were their last.  Hailey Bair, a talented student, sang “How Great Thou Art.”  Dr. Cone’s presidential charge encouraged the students to be like Onesiphorus, who “refreshed” Paul as seen in 2 Timothy 1:16.

The students were told more than once that Calvary will provide them with a fine education – just like many other schools would.  However, what sets Calvary apart from those other schools is the family atmosphere.  Welcome to the family, new students!

What a beautiful sight – a chapel full of students!
