Here it is! A new blog for a new school year! It’s a little late in the game, but late is better than never, right?! In the next several blog posts, look for updates via our new first-years! They’ll be telling you who they are and how they got to seminary, why they choose McCormick and what they think so far. You’ll also get to meet our Student Representatives and some of our Faculty and Staff!

Now, you might be saying to yourself, why on earth does a seminary have a blog? Well, blogs are a great way to give information. We represent a lot of people and places and we want to let people know! We’re not just a seminary for PCUSA students, but for all of those who have heard God’s call and are trying to discern that call and sometimes it helps to hear about others’ stories. Maybe you’ll find someone’s story that’s like yours, or maybe you’ll read something completely opposite from your story and it might make you think a little. The possibilities are endless!

Here’s something else pretty great (I think), if you have something you’d like to know, then tell us and we’ll put it out there! It’s like when I’m sitting in Greek class and Professor Tanzer tells us that we might ask a question that others need to know as well. The answer benefits more than just one person, everyone is benefited either by hearing something new or hearing something again to help remind you. We’ll keep names out but we’ll try to answer your questions and concerns so that lots of people benefit!
