  • As my time as a student at Clemson University is coming close to an end, I look back at the many amazing things that I have done and been apart of during my soon to be 4 and a half years in college. I've been lucky to have met and become friends with many people.

    When I look at this picture, not only do I recall an incredible story, but it reminds me of many memories. When I look back at my college career in years to come, two particularly large aspects of my college life will come to mind. The body of people seen in this picture is a group of students and friends from Clemson Wesley. Clemson Wesley is a student ministry that I am proud to have been able to have called my home for the past soon to be 3 and a half years. I have been apart of this group and have made many incredible friends that I am glad to have in my life. Clemson Wesley has provided a home to me, given me many lifelong friends, and has given me the chance to grow as a person, for which I am grateful for.

    The other aspect of this photo is where it was taken, which, as you can sort of make out, was in a cave. Now this just wasn't any cave. This picture was in a cave called Preacher's Cave on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. This cave is significant in both natural and historical ways. It is said that Preacher's Cave served as a point of refuge for the island's earliest inhabitants. In the late 1600s, a group of people fled Bermuda for religious freedom.

    This particular picture captures a very special moment that I experienced in my college career. It depicts two very large aspects of my time in college and a particular memory that will always stay with me. Both Clemson Wesley and the island of Eleuthera are two things that greatly impacted my time in college and my life.
