Taylor University

(my alma mater) still makes me happy when I go back to campus or even just think about it.  Especially this time of year…the best time to be in Indiana.
It will always hold a very dear place in my heart.
It is, afterall, the place where we met.
Where we dreamed about what life would look like together.
Where we learned so much more than acadamia.
Where we bonded by living life in a community.  And that community has been extended into much of our lives now as we still connect with TU alumni whether we knew them or not on campus.
Where we were encouraged by daily Bible verses in the bathroom stalls and by all life stopping for weekly chapels.
Where we both grew up.  A lot.
Where I changed my major.  Twice.
But finally figured out what I wanted to do in life.
Where I learned the importance of living closer than 30 minutes to the nearest Wal-mart.
Where I truly learned to appreciate my mom’s cooking.  And so much more than that from both of my parents.
Where I felt myself truly blossoming into an adult.
Where I broke so many responsibility codes and stayed up way too late, went out for midnight snacks from the gas station, and probably didn’t dress warmly enough 90% of the time.  Which is also probably why I got mono sophomore year.
Where we first learned about the depth of immense loss.
Where we met our bridesmaids and groomsmen who became lifelong friends.
Where we hope our MG will one day desire to go (but, shhh…she doesn’t need to know that until she’s already been registered for fall classes)

What do you miss the most about college?

    Aww your description is perfect. Feel those ways too. Loved being stuck on campus most of the time & creatively finding things to do and in the process making lifelong friends. Walks around campus, walmart, handy Andy with friends and/or Joe. So many memories – we too are so happy visiting and just thinking back to those days. We very often express to each other how much we miss our lives at taylor. Those were some of the best days in so many ways.

    Those WERE the best days! Wishing we could go back and relive a few of them just every once in a while! I guess our memories will have to do until we can relive the experience through our children 🙂
