"Lzfe goals should center around the realization that whatever you strive to do - you should never lose sight . . "It's an important role because college students have the time to do the things . . ." 124 f Perspectives '83 Perspectives '83 nom., any people asked students, "What's your goal in life?" Student answers ranged from "I don't know" to a simple "to graduate." Life goals for students usually differed according to the student classifications. Freshmen weren't really looking to graduate, but knew somi day they would have to get out and decide what color to paint their Learj Sophomores were usually trying to decide their majors and family life wasj even a considerationjuniors had decided their majors and were beginning feel the need to graduate but weren't quite ready to go. Seniors, however, hj one immediate goal in mind: graduation. Some seniors graduated, got ma tied and found a job, while others played it solo and got a job. Exactly what goals students had set to achieve differed for everybody, bi most agreed that college at ACU had an important role in the goals student set before themselves. "I think the four years of college are important because it's a good time grow and plan for your life," said junior Kari Graves. "When you come ACU you find such a wide spectrum of things to get involved in. They he you find a place for yourself and what your talents are. When you leave, yc have a strong background of your Christian values being strengthened." As students progressed toward graduation, their life goals may hav changed. Senior Glenn Addison made it clear, though, that as studeni changed and set their goals, each should've done so with the realization why they had been placed here on earth. "Life goals should center around t . realization that whatever you strive to do in your life you should never los sight of whose you are and what you are here on earth for." tudents came to ACU to get an education in a Christian atmosphen When they left home, it meant being on their own and making the own choices. One of their most important choices was how they woul exercise their spiritual lives. Students wanted to find their niche at ACU, but they might have gottel caught up in school and forgotten about their church lives so that they on attended services. After all, didn't that three-hour class in Romans make for part of a student's church life? Finding a role in the church as a colle student seemed more difficult than doing so as a high school student. "It's so easy to get here and just be a part of the crowd instead of teachin a class or visiting the sick," said sophomore Leigh Ann Sims. "lt's so muc easier to do those things back home." Finding time to take an active role in the church ministry was hard fg many students. ln school students knew at the end of the semester th would receive a report of their accomplishments, however great or small. A' the time, working on a project in biology seemed much more productiv than working with a group of fourth graders. "Students don't have as muc time here at college," Leigh Ann continued. But junior Kim Vaught disagreed about a college student's time. "lt's a important role because college students have the time to do the things thj really need to be done, like teaching classes. They need to develop tho good habits now." The role of a college student in the church was important to man churches in the area. So much so, that those churches appointed full-tim college ministers to help students with their church lives. Some students too. advantage of their time here and developed within the churchg others did noi Whatever they did, though, each student had to determine for himself - after all, he was the one who would have to answer to the Lord.
