A Letter From Your SA President

Hello PUC family, my name is Megan Belz and I am lucky to be the student association president for this 2019-2020 school year. I am a senior, business management major and I am absolutely loving it. I started my freshman year at PUC as a fine art major, only really knowing one person and no real drive for what I wanted to do in the future. Even though art is a huge part of my life, it never felt like the right path for me. After months of research and career tests, I decided to try out business. I fell in love with it! My sophomore year is when I really discovered myself and where my strengths lay. I let this passion carry me all the way till now and I’m still very happy. My dream career after college is to manage my own animal shelter. Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge animal lover and an adopt don’t shop advocate. I recently concluded an internship with the Napa County Animal Shelter and I learned so much through that experience.

I’ve never really thought of myself as someone who was capable of being a leader. To be completely honest, I often struggle with a lot of self-doubts, as I’m sure many people do. Deciding to take on the position of the SA president is actually a really big deal for me. This school year I really want to prove to myself and to PUC that I am completely capable of just about anything I want to accomplish in life. The biggest thing I have come to realize this summer is I cannot do it on my own! My relationship with God is essential to any steps I take in life and it is through Him I have the strength and the privilege to do so. 

One lesson which really stood out to me is the importance of confidence in Christ. Psalms 27:3 says though an army DEPLOYS against me, my heart will not be afraid. Though a war BREAKS OUT against me, I will still be confident. Reading this really tugged at my heart because David is talking in the present tense. He is not reciting the events that have happened but the events in his life that are happening. It is easy to be courageous and confident over a past situation, but to be brave when you know armies are being deployed against you now, is far more difficult. This is the way I want to approach this school year. I want to have confidence in the Lord that is so great, in the midst of any challenge, big or small, I remain brave. 

2C198FC9-1DCE-494D-B832-514FDE49967EThis school year is going to be so wonderful I can hardly wait!  I am so lucky to have an amazing group of people who make up my SA team. They are coming at you, PUC fam, with exciting events, crazy videos, fun posters, God-centered worship, senate inspired changes, and much more. We are here for the students and we want to give you all the best year possible. I want to encourage anyone who has any suggestions for SA to come to us and talk, we want you to be involved this year. We want to create an atmosphere that can stimulate the year you visualize. I cannot wait to get to know you all better and become the close-knit family I know we can be, because growing close to one another is a perfect example of what God’s love is about. 

 

What’s There to Do at PUC?

By Melissa Khoury
Student Association Social Vice President

Aside from being one of the nation’s most highly acclaimed colleges for its beauty, academia, and faith, PUC offers its students with countless numbers of social activities to participate in, both on- and off-campus. The campus is always busy with events that range from open mic nights to service projects, and students’ social calendars are always full.

Stay Active

Our school is well known for its outstanding intramurals program, where student can form teams and compete against each other in various sports like indoor soccer, flag football, basketball, badminton, and so many more. Check out Coach Paulson’s “Fire It Up!” blog post on this topic. PUC also has several varsity teams: We have basketball and cross country for both men and women, as well as men’s soccer and women’s volleyball.

Get Involved with Clubs

There’s also a wide range of campus clubs at PUC – from the Chemistry club, the Korean Club to the World Missions Club – that give students an opportunity to meet other students who have the same interests. These clubs sponsor events year round that keep students engaged, such as pre-vespers events and getaways to Yosemite and Tahoe.

Every year REVO raises money for various charities by hosting a color run, fashion show, rummage sale, and other events.

Weekly Student Association Events

Every Saturday night, the Student Association also hosts events, either on-campus or somewhere off the hill. Be sure to keep an eye out this year for events like bowling, line dancing, concerts, outdoor movie nights, open mic nights, and many others!

The annual SA Talent Show is one of the events students look forward to the most.

Enjoy Angwin’s Beauty

This is only the beginning of some of the many on-campus activities available. Students often spend their free time on weekends going on scenic hikes or biking in PUC’s extensive back property or to places like nearby Linda Falls.

Explore the Local Area

If the hill doesn’t provide enough social life for you, students can venture to the nearby beautiful city of St. Helena or Napa Valley where there’s no shortage of restaurants or shops. For students who want a break from the quiet Napa Valley, San Francisco is just a short drive away and offers all the excitement of a big city.

From the countless number of events both on- and off-campus, PUC provides its students with an outstanding social life. PUC is a unique place where students can not only thrive academically, but additionally a place where they can grow individually and build a strong community amongst the student body by getting involved.​ No matter what you’re interested in, you will likely be able to find it at PUC along with a great group of friends to enjoy it with!
