Fridays at Calvin

I truly LOVE Fridays at Calvin. 

Fridays at Calvin is just wonderful. Friday is considered to be the weekend by many people, and I am one of those people. As the day progresses, I get excited that it gets closer to the weekend. I do not know the reason, but I feel like I have more energy because it's Friday. I think Friday just tends to be a special day for a lot of people, including me.

What I also love about Friday is Friday chapel, which is Be LOUD! Friday chapel is special for me, not that the other chapel days aren't special, but Friday chapel seems to be much more special. I think it is because Friday chapel is a time when most people get together at the chapel. During Friday chapel, we get the chance to thank many people, such as the Alumni Board, Fridays at Calvin and the Board of Trustees. Friday Chapel is about being loud, which means singing our hearts and lungs to PRAISE our dear God. I love being able to sing worship songs without caring about being in tune, but only caring about praising the Lord for what he is doing and what he has done. I think the presence of the Lord is so thick in that place every time we sing that people feel God next to us. Many people are at peace during chapel and walk out with the peace that people are just filled with JOY. Friday chapel is just wonderful :)

Along with the weekend and Friday chapel, another favorite part of chapel is getting the chance to meet new people. Besides being an RA and a Calvin blogger, I am also a tour guide. I get the chance almost every Friday to meet a new prospective student and family who are touring Calvin, and who want to learn more about Calvin and get the chance to see the campus. I enjoy the moment in showing the school around, possibly having them picture themselves walking around the campus. I can tell when someone truly enjoys the campus visit and lights up as they imagine themselves walking around the campus or even possibly going to Calvin. 

So, what was your visit like?
