A Day in the Life of a Verity Student
Hello! My name is Peter Rupp and I am a member of the 2011 graduating class. The following is a summary of a typical day for a first-year Verity student.
Around 6:45AM — I get out of bed, shower, and then spend some time reading the Bible and praying.
7:15AM — When I finish with my quiet time, I head up to the dining room for a tasty breakfast of cereal, yogurt, and maybe a bagel.
7:40AM — Having taken too long to eat my bagel, I rush back down to my dorm room and grab my notebook, pen and Bible, and then run up the stairs to chapel.
7:45AM — After listening to Dr. McCray expound upon the Word of God in chapel, I talk to a couple people about volleyball later tonight.
9:00AM — English Literature class starts at 9:00 with Charity Clarke and goes until lunchtime at 12:00
12:00PM — Tired from sitting for three hours, I slowly make my way through the food line, sit down in the cafeteria and begin a conversation with another friendly student.
12:20PM — After lunch, I play a round of foosball or two before starting dishpit
12:45PM — Stimulating conversations abound throughout dishpit, but, alas, it ends and I proceed to my room to study
2:00PM — I talk to a few guys in the guy's lounge for 10 minutes or so and then study until symposium which is at 4:00.
4:00PM — Symposium was quite exceptional today with each speaker presenting an informative subject; I came away feeling more educated.
5:30PM — When symposium ends I enjoy a delicious supper of lasagna, breadsticks, and salad.
6:15PM — And then the fun starts: after supper, I talk to some friends for a while, change into sports clothes, and run out onto the volleyball court for some good action.
8:15PM — We play for about two hours before the sun sets, making it very difficult to see the ball.
9:00PM — I come inside and play a game of ping pong with Steven Davis then go down to my room just in time for curfew.
Curfew — After curfew I talk to my roommate for a while and then do a bunch of push-ups.
1:05AM — Around 1:00am I finally get to bed promising myself that I will go to bed sooner the next night.
