A Large Responsibility

Walla Walla U. is a Christian campus. It is affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and a lot of incredible people have been educated on this very campus. The university has been in operation since 1892, when it was still REALLY out in the middle of nowhere, miles from the nearest house or shop. It has grown a lot since then - from one building to over a dozen main buildings (not counting additional structures on the campus); from under 100 students to over 1800. Originally Walla Walla College (hence the town name, College Place), the school achieved university status in 2007. The above photo is of the school's engineering building, Chan Shun Pavilion. The verse on the wall is from Proverbs, and one Christians all over the world can identify with - a responsibility given us to look out for our planet and protect it from harm.

I take 2 classes this term in Kretchmar (the building that connects to Chan Shun. I've looked out at that verse on and pondered the immense meaning behind it.

We not only have a responsibility to "feed his sheep" but to keep the farm safe and healthy as well.

WWU is such a pretty campus; I love all the trees.
