Sadly, it is not. The moderator got too busy actually being a student, that it kind of fell apart. However, if you want to submit your own post, we would be happy to post it!

Anonymous said: I know spu is a Christian school but is there a good acceptance of LGBT students? I'm not a huge fan of bigotry and want to apply but scared as some super Christians don't exactly accept homosexuality.

This is pretty much the biggest issue that’s facing Christians today, so it’s a very fair question to ask. The answer is that there are students who are all along the spectrum- from “prohibition” to “consecration.” There are students who are against gay marriage because of their faith and students who are affirming of it for the very same reasons. 

Homosexuality has generally been rejected by the majority church for a very long time, so it’s a huge shift for many people. But college is a time that people make those shifts. Even the biggest of bigots changes their mind pretty quickly when they realize they’re next door neighbor (who they share a communal bathroom with) is gay.

From what I have seen at SPU, there is a pretty radical acceptance of homosexual students. A fairly popular student just came out and was greeted by ONLY positive and affirming messages. It was really cool to watch. There may be people who are uncomfortable and who disagree, but they are rarely bigots. Generally, I am proud of the way the SPU community has welcomed the LGBT students.

Anonymous said: I'm considering applying to spu but I'm an atheist. Is that okay? Are there required religion classes? I hope I won't feel out of place.

It’s totally okay! There’s no rule that you have to be a Christian, and there’s no unspoken rule about “converting the heathens.” (That’s supposed to be a joke. I don’t think anyone at SPU would ever think that!) 

That being said, there are 3 required theology classes- church history, the bible, and christian theology. You won’t be at a disadvantage by not being a Christian, and the professors aren’t try to convert you either. They may not be your favorite classes, but they will help you figure out what you believe, which is really important. 

All of that to say, you will be a minority, i don’t want to lie about that. However, i don’t think that’s a bad thing. I think SPU needs people who disagree with the norm, as long as your willing to engage in real, honest, healthy conversations about it.

—> you should do it! you’ll always be learning more, but why not record your freshman year for others to see?

corinnelikesyou said: Sorry, I sent a question to the wrong area. I'll soon be a freshman and I am trying to decide between Hill and Moyer. I like Moyer because it's so close to everything on campus. I like Hill because of the family feel (which is vital because I'll be living 1,000 miles away from home), but it's a tad far. Any advice?

i would say don’t make the choice just on location. location is important if you’re an arts student because it does make life easier, but not a whole lot easier. choose a dorm based on atmosphere, and if you don’t really care that much, you could just write that on comments section. ultimately, they’ll match you to a floor and roommate that fits you best. housing works out for the best, i promise!

#46- Relay for Life
This weekend was SPU’s Relay for Life and they raised over $16,000 for finding the cure for cancer. there were a number of students there who are cancer survivors, and everyone involved knows someone who has had cancer. relay for life involves walking around the track all day and night because “cancer never sleeps.” the goal is to always have someone on your team running. most of the floors on campus had a team that raised money together. 5W Ashton even held a date auction to raise money! 
every hour during relay for life there is a different event and themed lap. it’s a total blast and incredibly powerful. SPU also raised more money than our rival SU, so that makes everyone even more excited. to learn more about relay for life visit http://www.relayforlife.org/

#45- social media

as the culture goes, so goes SPU. we have conformed to the patterns of this world. every time something becomes popular in mass culture, SPU finds a way to twist it for itself. last year we had the stalkerish “like-a-little” this year we had the intense SPU Postsecret, the hilarious SPU memes, and even shit SPU kids say. of course, every department at SPU has a facebook page and some profs will even tweet you! yes, SPU is certainly relevant!
