Now that the holidays have passed, a new quarter (or semester) has begun. And I don’t know about you, but every year, Winter Quarter at college hit me hard. Something about the short, dark days and enough rain to make swimming to classes the most efficient form of transportation just seemed to combine poorly with my academic schedule and ambitious study plans.
Maybe you know a freshman college student, or maybe you are a freshman college student, and this is your first year navigating the dreaded Winter Quarter. Sunny days and flip-flops seem a long way off, and you (or your child, friend, niece, nephew, grandchild, or former youth group student) are still adjusting to life on campus. Well, I’ve got some great news for you! Logos now has a fantastic, encouraging resource that will help keep you grounded in your faith during this continued time of transition.
As the world around us continues to change, life on campus during the 21st century keeps evolving at the same rapid rate. Letters to a Student is a comprehensive resource, articulating the challenges that today’s college student faces—challenges that did not exist even 10-20 years ago! In addition, Letters addresses ways of tackling some of the core issues that we all must face when we leave home for that bachelor’s degree, whether it was decades ago or now, in 2011.
But Letters to a Student isn’t all we have to offer the college student. Our base packages include not only numerous Bible translations and commentaries, but also key features such as our Bible Reading Plan and Prayer List. These tools are the perfect solution to keep the student in your life grounded in the Word.
And, here at Logos, we understand how hard college can be, not on one’s faith but also on one’s pocket book. That’s why we created our two scholarships—Bible College and Seminary Scholarship—both recently featured on the blog. The January deadline has passed, but there’s still hope for you if you qualify! Our next deadline for each is May 10, 2011. Scholarship winners receive $1,000.00 towards tuition as well as a Scholar’s Library that, in print, would cost over $8,000.00.
So grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and let Logos help you through this year’s Winter Quarter.
By the way, here’s a sampling of our other fantastic resources, specifically catered to the student:
