Beyond UD

By Meaghan Crowley, '13

In the Spring of 2013, I found myself at what felt like a foggy crossroad where I couldn’t really see my destination. I was embarking on a semester of student teaching and had absolutely no idea what it meant to dress professionally. (Still don’t?) I also had no idea what I was going to do after graduation. I graduated and lived to tell the tale. Life took a turn and I ended up doing a year of service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in Juneau, Alaska. Community, Simplicity, Social and Ecological Justice, and Spirituality became the pillars of a transformative year. But critical to my arrival in Alaska, was the process of discernment.

So if you are a soon-to-be second semester Senior, or Junior beginning to think about a year of service, and want some set-aside time to think, pray, and talk about a year of service and post-grad life, consider registering for the Beyond UD mini course (UD1 421) on Tuesday evenings from 7-8 PM. If nothing else, remember what you choose to do next is simply one step along the way. You will take many steps on your journey. Who knows, maybe those steps will lead you to Alaska.
