The Sun returns to Calvin College.
This past winter was my first one spent in the North. Every morning when I woke up I would check the weather report. Usually the weather service would forcast a “wintery mix.” This is a deceptive Michigan euphemism for snow, sleet, ice, and really really cold weather. I hope that I don’t sound bitter, it’s just that I am a Southern boy, and my body isn’t as conditioned for the cold as most Michiganders. But now Spring has finally come and I wake up to sunlight streaming through my window every morning! The Sun has come out, and with it so have Calvin’s students.
