Smile, It’s SUMMIT Time!

The school year is finally coming to an end, and it’s time to start gathering up your friends to snap some photos, exchange phone numbers, and have one last laugh as you remember all the moments you’ve shared together this year. Oh yeah! And sign yearbooks like crazy!

I was so proud to receive my very first yearbook as a freshman in college! I didn’t realize until I had opened the Summit and saw my freshman class that I would feel such a sense of accomplishment! Immediately, I felt a close bond with my fellow classmates because I had finally grasped that we had done it! Whoa! We had completed our very first year of college! The 2011 yearbook will be a great reminder to not only freshmen, but to all the students who have accomplished so much this year.

The Summit is filled with people and memories I never want to forget. And since I’ll have it as a keepsake, I will never lose the precious moments of college life! Having this yearbook is so awesome because there are snap shots of moments that I would’ve normally forgotten. The funny moments during Student Body, the snow at Christmas Lights, and the creative, yet crazy upperclassmen at Greek Rush are just examples of moments that could possibly slip away. Those are moments that count! Real living is finding joy in every little minute of the day. My encouragement to the student body is to live every moment with the joy of Christ shining in you! You will want those pictures to remind you of joyful moments -- not busy days. So remember to be thankful for the moments God allowed you to experience as you flip through your yearbook!

(I’m, also, very grateful to the PCC students who worked so hard putting this colorful yearbook together! The yearbook staff did a spectacular job designing, photographing, writing, and editing the Summit. Thank you all so much for the time and effort you have put into making the perfect “college souvenir”!)

    Hold onto that yearbook, because in ten years it will mean even more to you. I recently flipped through one of my PCC yearbooks from 10 years ago, and just seeing the faces of people I recognized took me back to fond memories on campus.

    Yearbooks are definitely the highlight of my year! I think the best part about yearbooks is getting your friends to sign it. This is my third yearbook and I always enjoy going back and reading all the things my friends said the year before. I usually get a good laugh, but the memories are unforgettable. =D

    Yearbooks are also a great way to remember people who have since left college–people who you don’t see on a weekly basis. Since I always remember faces, but sometimes forget the connection, I like to write below the face how I know them. It makes for a treasure trove of memories. Looking back now to my freshman yearbook I can say, “Oh, yeah, that was the guy who would crack us up in HI 101…”

      or….”that was the guy that sat behind me in MA 111.” ; ) You are so right, Abe. The memories from friends that sign your yearbook are definitely worth it, not just now, but ten years down the road!

    Thanks so much for the comments about the yearbook. I am a member of the Summit staff. We enjoyed so much putting this years Summit together for you guys. If you’ve never been on yearbook staff, you should consider it next spring. It’s loads of fun and it’s amazing to watch it come together.

    Woot woot! What a good job the Summit Staff did this year! It is so much fun to get in that big long line (or short line, if you go early enough…;) It’s a lot of fun getting everybody to sign it, and looking through it, laughing at all the memories in there. Good job guys!
