Last February, alumnus Julian Castro, ‘17, and I ventured from the Central Valley to the California coast to cheer on one of our favorite professional sports teams, the Vegas Golden Knights, as they took on the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center. At the time, Vegas was a few months into their inaugural season, yet they sat in second for total points in all the NHL.
As an oversea student from Shenzhen, China, I absorbed a completely different foreign culture and learned a lot from it. I first arrived in the United States three years ago, and experienced the warm welcome from many Americans. Today I am a junior at Fresno Christian and have tried my best to get involved with the school.
For the past four years, campus teacher Kyle Dodson has employed his passion for the arts to teach FCS drama and the improv class. FC drama benefits students by exercising and stretching different parts of the brain.

This past weekend I was given the opportunity to experience what the media world is like at a college basketball game. This opened my eyes to a new world of covering sports. As a kid, my dream was to do any sort of coverage for sports, whether it was commentating or becoming a reporter. Being able to sit at the media table court side at the Save Mart Center watching the (16-5) Fresno State Bulldogs take on (9-12) New Mexico Lobos with a back and forth first half was mind blowing. I was a rookie in an area full of pros.

A holiday we either dread or can not wait for. The candy hearts, chocolate, flowers and teddy bears line the racks of stores, as everyone begins to shop for their loved ones before Feb. 14: Valentine's Day. It may all seem cheesy but in reality we are at home watching chick flicks waiting for our prince charming to come running after us.
As the winter season winds down, athletes look forward to the spring sports season. Students across campus pick up their mitts and prepare for the start of the baseball season.
Lindsay Weimer, ‘20, after enduring her first three month round of chemotherapy and an invasive surgery, was skeptical about continuing her chemo treatments. But through prayer and after a conversation with her aunt, she eventually concluded that she should continue treatments.
Currently, America finds itself torn by opposing views of our leaders. I believe that many people judge our leaders solely on opinions from the media, without hearing the facts and deciding for themselves. I think that these opinions lead to a disrespect of the authority that God places over us.
