It’s crazy to think that my time here at Point Loma is coming to an end. As cliché as it sounds, it feels like it could have just been last year that my belongings were being ripped out of my mom’s blue van and carried to my new home in Nease for me.
Since then I’ve gone through so many ups and downs in my relationship with Christ, I’ve explored another continent by studying abroad (shoutout to the London 2012 group), I’ve gained mentors, I’ve changed majors and added minors, made so many incredible friends, fallen in love, had my heart broken, played a ton of ultimate frisbee, tasted the greatest scones in the history of forever and been surprised to find out they were created in the Caf.
I’m so thankful to have been able to live on campus all four years and experience my very first Loma ocean view this year from Flex. I have grown so much during my time here and I’m a completely different person than I was when I started (seriously though, freshman year my top strength was Developer and now it’s WOO).
I don’t know who I would be without my roommates (hi Alexia, Miranda, Melanie, Mattea and Callie!) and I don’t know how I’m going to live without them, as we’re all going different directions after graduation (cue uncontrollable tears).
To me, PLNU has been about so much more than receiving a bachelor’s degree (although that’s definitely a plus). It’s taught me how to be in relationships with people, how to keep Christ at the forefront of my mind, how to make friends, how to articulate my opinions and how to still love those people who have different opinions than I do.
I don’t know what I’ll do without this place. That being said, I’ll be moving to Nashville, Tennessee after I graduate and I’ll go in confidence that PLNU has given me all the tools I need to be successful. Except for maybe the fact that there is no ocean in Tennessee… PLNU hasn’t really prepared me for that part.
Nordberg is soon to be graduating with a degree in media communication (production) and a minor in writing. During her time at PLNU, she has been involved in Point TV, the intramural sports department, chapel band and playing as much ultimate frisbee as physically possible.
