A Student's Experience in Geneva's L&T

I recall the benefits of L&T when thinking about the week I turned in my first college paper and took my first college test. I did not receive the grades expected. It wasn’t until the following week’s L&T class that I was able to put some of my worries to rest.

Here's the biggest reason liberal arts still matter

Afraid of the Radio

Beaver County Radio was going to be at Homecoming and they wanted to talk to some current students about their experience at Geneva. I left the office thinking about the interview. Perhaps I would be good at it, but what if I said something silly on air? Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea after all.

Geneva Values

Geneva does not do “values,” those expressions of positive-sounding qualities, like “strong work ethic” or “tolerance.” “Values” float untethered, without foundation, certainty, or permanence. Whether held by individuals or groups, “values” reflect mere human preference and assertion, changeable according to current fashion. Instead of “values,” Geneva has God’s eternal Word, which teaches what Christians have long called virtues, qualities of mind and habit that imitate Christ, such as love, joy, peace, and patience.

Sexual Identity

In our day, people loudly assert novel ideas about sexual identity and gender, often with a show of scholarly wisdom centered in universities, with considerable help from popular entertainment and news media, and more recently from major corporations. United States law made at all levels, both by legislative bodies and courts, and enforced with regulations promulgated by administrative agencies, often supports these novel ideas, while people who continue to assert older ideas about sexual identity are shamed as ignorant and persecuting bigots.
