  • As Bushnell commemorated Black History Month, this week's God's Global Story event with Dr. Vince Bantu was inspiring and challenging. He reminded us God's story is, and always has been global, one that is connected to a multitude of all peoples. 
 
Some takeaways from those who participated:
-- Helping us find confidence in navigating conversations on diversity and race
-- Unity in Christ through robust scholarship and biblical truth
-- Transformational understanding of Christian history, challenging biases, and recognizing influential figures often overlooked
-- Appreciation for God's global church and diverse contributions often overlooked in Western education
 
Dr. Bantu's visit was part of the ongoing conversation begun this last November called Becoming Beloved Community, which is Bushnell University's initiative exploring biblical perspectives on racial reconciliation and the unity found in faith. Recordings of the event will be made available at bushnell.edu/belovedcommunity.

  • Amanda Torres-Sanchez fulfilled her long-held dream of working an internship with Children's Miracle Network (CMN) last fall! 🏥

With a passion for philanthropy, Amanda organized a successful silent auction during high school that benefited CMN, creating a lasting connection. As a senior interdisciplinary major at Bushnell, her connection with the organization culminated in her internship, where she received a diverse experience that offered insights into the multifaceted world of development work. Responsibilities for the internship included, event coordination and preparation for various fundraising efforts, and engaging in discussions about collaborations and partnerships, including an ongoing one with Bo Nix, which help raise support and awareness for the children and families treated at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend.

Reflecting on her goal of working in the non-profit sector., Amanda emphasized that the internship prepared her for a dynamic work environment, reinforcing her interest in development. Great service work, Amanda! 👏

  • Through his multifaceted experience as a Beacon, alumnus Riley Anderson '20 reflects on how his time at Bushnell University equipped him for his career in real estate.

While studying theology and practicing on the court as a basketball player, Riley experienced the close-knit community Bushnell has to offer that not only supported his academic pursuits, but also fostered personal growth and development through meaningful connections with classmates and professors. His time within the theology program was instrumental for his career preparation, which provided opportunities to hone his critical thinking and analytical skills, as well as an emphasis on ethics and social responsibility.

Riley carried the professional and interpersonal skills he gained through his Bushnell experience into his role as a loan officer at Nova Home Loans. A third-generation mortgage professional, he was immersed early in the mortgage industry and his aspirations to demystify the complexities of the field for his clients informed his career approach. For Riley, the mortgage industry plays a critical role society allowing clients the opportunity for financial stability and growth. As a loan officer, being entrusted with guiding clients through a significant financial decision is a core responsibility of his career, one that helps empower individuals to invest in their futures and future generations.

Riley offers a wealth of advice for students, emphasizing the importance of being open to learning in the early years of career development, recognizing the value in serving, and concluding with, "view the initial years of your career as an extension of your education... Embrace challenges and feedback as opportunities for growth, and remain adaptable to the evolving demands of your profession.”

  • Growth at Goodrich Hall! 

The Goodrich Hall Bell Tower is taking shape and standing tall above campus! Once completed, the tower will have an elevator with restrooms at each level and will connect to each floor of Goodrich Hall. Four bells will call the campus community to chapel and celebrate occasions such as Convocation and Commencement. At the very top of the Bell Tower, a cross will stand close to six stories high, overlooking campus and downtown Eugene.

The interior renovations continue in Goodrich Hall, preparing to house several new, modern classrooms and office spaces.

Stay tuned for continued updates on the progress of Goodrich Hall!
