Lessons in Leadership: Be a Leader, Don’t Be In Charge

The President of the Student Government Association NYC speaks about true leadership

There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being the head of any organization. It’s one thing to be a leader under the authority of another leader; it’s another thing to be that leader in authority. Everyone looks to you for guidance; everything rides on your shoulders. You call the shots; you set the pace. Nothing gets done unless you set it in motion.

Yeah, no pressure.

Why College Students Should Get onto LinkedIn NOW

Few of these millenials engage on the one online social site that could change their lives: LinkedIn.

It may be the beginning of the school year for many college students, but there is no better time to start thinking of graduation and job hunting.  Back in the day, young grads could send out a legion of resumes to corporations around the country, confident that the fine-quality paper and title of baccalaureate was enough to clinch an offer letter.

Times change.

After One Month in Thailand

Learning to live life differently in Northern Thailand.

This week during my internship in Thailand has been full of culture and fun. I was so blessed to have a fellow Nyack student come out with a team from her church and to spend time with them throughout the week. Along with the day to day tasks I was also able to go along on several cultural events with her and her group. I rode an elephant, went to a cultural dinner, and shopped a special Sunday…

How the Father’s Love Set Me Free: Amor do Pai

"The love of the Father filled them with peace and joy. It is a love that makes no sense, a love that is beyond human wisdom and reasoning. A love that makes something beautiful out of brokenness."

JessnI

My gracious friend and sister Jess. Partnering with her in creating a beautiful space for the women was so refreshing.

“How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
And make a wretch His treasure…”

“Amor do Pai”;  the Father’s love here in Brazil has set me free from me. I have fought, struggled, faced tough decisions to let go of me and say yes…

Internship: Thailand Pictures

Get a glimpse into Erin’s internship in rural Thailand. The WIFI may be iffy but her story is compelling!

It has been another exciting week in Thailand! I am living at one of the girl’s homes for Remember Nhu along with the 60 girls here. They are all in school so my week days consist of teaching English to the Thai house parents and other helpers from the home along with the two boy’s homes down the road. When I’m not teaching, I get to plan games for the kids, clean up around the house, do my…

7 Reasons Why Nyack is #MyTopCollege

From professors to the prayer…

In light of the Forbes national search for the top colleges in the United States, I decided to give you some of the reasons why I love Nyack so much.

1. Prayer is a lifestyle. We pray before our classes begin (especially on test days). We pray in the hallways. I’ve even seen prayer circles in the bathroom. We pray with each other. Then we pray for each other some more. It’s just the norm at Nyack.
