CONVERSATIONS AT THE CENTER – “Student Life in God’s Plan” PDF Print E-mail

Stephanie McCaffreyOn Sunday, March 18th, the Assumptionist Center focused on the theme, “Student Life in God’s Plan.” The presenter for the morning was Stephanie McCaffrey, Associate Director of Campus Ministry at Assumption College. An M. Div. graduate from Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Stephanie’s responsibilities include directing Assumption’s retreat program and works closely with campus ministry’s student leaders. She also advises Advocates for Life and serves as chaplain to the Women’s Swim Team.

In her presentation, Stephanie elaborated on the reasons why young men and women come to college based on her experience at Assumption. For some it is simple the next step after high school, for others it is for the purpose of seeking the ‘college experience,’ for others it is the further education needed for a specific job or career, especially for international students and for some simply for the sake of study.

What became most significant during the discussion following her presentation was the need for a realistic, healthy balance in the life of all students, as they deal with various stresses and pressures of this period in their lives.

As usual, the animated discussion and expression of experiences and ideas continued during the delicious brunch which followed in the dining room.
