Being a young person in Trump's America means making your voice heard. Loudly. Proudly. Through a microphone, shouting in a protest rally, long posts on your Facebook page or Twitter threads. Some compare our generation of youngsters to the golden protest age of the ’60s: marches and sit-ins for civil rights, loud clamoring for an end to the violence in Vietnam. Those voices shaped the world we're living in today.
On a stormy Tuesday night, 40 students, faculty and staff made the trek across campus in the snow to talk about sex.

I am so stoked to study abroad in Rome, Italy next year. Of course I called my grandmother after I found out I had been accepted into the program, and her first reaction started supportive, with an “I’m so happy for you!” and then moved on to be a little more cautious with, “You have to watch out for those Italian men.” Then she put my grandfather on the phone and told him I have been accepted to Rome and he asked me “Have you already started packing?”

Lent is finally here, along with the inevitable question: “What are you giving up for Lent?”
Whether you choose to give up social media or plan to pray or journal more, the hardest part can be making it through the entire 40-day period.
Lent is a season of fasting, penance and abstinence. The 40-day sacrifice, which ends on Easter Sunday, represents the time that Jesus fasted for “forty days and forty nights” in the wilderness, according to Matthew 4:2. To reflect Jesus’ struggles, people can choose to pray more and give up something they desire for 40 days.
The Beacon asked students what they’re doing for this Lenten season.
We asked Lund Family Hall's pastoral resident Father Dan about his life, hobbies, favorite Salt & Straw flavor and what it's like to be friends with Terry Porter.
Christian universities across the nation struggle to find the delicate balance of addressing sexual assault issues, but also adhering to church beliefs on premarital sex. Christians do not believe in premarital sex, making a university’s stance on sex and sexual assault difficult to understand.

Campus Ministry will be hosting a question-and-answer style event called “Can Good Christians Have Good Sex?” at 6:00 p.m. in the Terrace Room below The Commons.
