Favorite memory of SPU: “The best part of my SPU experience has been my numerous trips to Blakely Island, where SPU owns a field station that was gifted to us. This has given me the opportunity to do field work and engage more closely with God’s creation. There is something so humbling about standing in a forest and fully experiencing the gift of creation. Blakely has been such a special part of my time here at SPU and I will cherish the memories I have made there forever.”
