Exercise: Why It is Important and Different Exercise Options

Get your exercise! Your grades will thank you later.

With the start of a new school year, everyone is always thinking about how they can study harder, earn better grades, and be more successful. Although exercise might not be the first thing to come to mind as a way to make you more successful in college, I cannot even begin to stress how important it is. Exercise clears your mind, allows you to focus better, and allows you to remember what you’ve…

Learning about Leadership through the Book of Titus

She was unimpressed when her director said they would be reading through this particular book of the New Testament. But then things started to change.

To be honest, I was less than thrilled when my summer director told me we would be going through the book of Titus my first month in Thailand. My first thought went to the books author: the famous Paul. I know most of you out there revere and adore this man for his many writings and contributions to the various books of the New Testament. But, I will admit I was part of the small group of those…

What Makes a Good Friend, Especially in College

Friendships change and it takes effort to keep in touch, even more so when you’re in college. Erin knows all about it.

College is a time of great change, and I have learned that even friendship is a part of that. You gain new friends, keep some old, and sometimes you move in different directions. Most of the time those friendships start to look very different as they readjust to fit busy schedules and the miles in between. Nyack College has given me some of the closest relationships of my entire life. I feel…

Jumping into a New Semester

You think your schedule is busy? Meet our new blogger, nursing student: Lauren!

Within 24 hours of arriving on campus this month, I had not only set up my room and been reunited with all my friends but I had also taken an exam, been given more assignments that I could count, and got hired for a new job. The school year is already flying by even though it has only just begun. I think it’s safe to say that this is going to be a busy year.

Being on a team is hard work but always worth it in the end.

Classes have begun! While it can be exciting to take new classes and get into the swing of things, it can also be exhausting.

No one looks forward to exams, mounds of papers, sleepless nights, the necessity of double espresso shots and the overall stress of college life. Fortunately, we have some events coming up on the Nyack College Manhattan Campus that you can look forward to this semester.

Finding Peace and Guidance in Life

"I realized I’ve been trying to live my life for God, but I’ve been trying to do it on my own."

IMG_6426  In my recent quiet time with God, I have been learning a lot about what’s important. Let me rephrase that: what should be important. I’ve read many verses over the past month that talk about God’s promises and what He will give to us if we honor Him. For example…

“Since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of…
