25 Bible Verses To Connect Faith And Mathematics Using Weekly Devotionals, Written Reflections, And Memory Verses, Mark Colgan Apr 2022

25 Bible Verses To Connect Faith And Mathematics Using Weekly Devotionals, Written Reflections, And Memory Verses, Mark Colgan

Engaging Teaching Today Conference

Faith and learning integration can take various forms for different faculty members, but I believe it helps to do it regularly (at least once per week) by giving students a chance to discuss in groups and then write about their own ideas. On Monday, I typically pick a verse that relates to the week’s topics. I write the verse on the board before students arrive, along with a discussion question, and then show a YouTube video related to the verse. I have students briefly discuss the question in groups, and they can memorize the verses for bonus points on ...

The Paradox Of Loss, Abby Pugsley Feb 2022

The Paradox Of Loss, Abby Pugsley

English Senior Papers

The Paradox of Loss is a collection of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry that leans into the tension humans experience as eternal beings in a world marked by impermanence. We encounter loss in countless ways throughout our lives, and yet we also look toward a future where all is restored. This collection is an exploration of the losses I have experienced, presented in both fictional and nonfictional forms. My hope is to show the life that pervades even in loss, both through our attachment to the physical world and in the way our grief points toward our desire for permanence ...


Sanctuary, Abigail G. Chandler Feb 2022

Sanctuary, Abigail G. Chandler

English Senior Papers

Sanctuary is a collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that explores relationships. I pull from my own experiences with family, friendships, self-knowledge, and the divine to connect with readers over shared loss and over attempts at understanding goodness, beauty, and truth. Sanctuary seeks to look at relationships multilaterally, holding pain and pleasure in juxtaposition. Everyone needs people who make them feel safe, wanted, and known, and sanctuary is not found in the same places for everyone.


The Effects Of Trauma On Identity Formation: Pursuing And Obtaining Individual Freedom In Emerson’S Nature And Creech’S Chasing Redbird, Mckenzie Hershberger Feb 2022

The Effects Of Trauma On Identity Formation: Pursuing And Obtaining Individual Freedom In Emerson’S Nature And Creech’S Chasing Redbird, Mckenzie Hershberger

English Senior Papers

Nature and Chasing Redbird provide poignant examples of the restorative power found in the natural world, and a thorough analysis of the works and lives of the authors reveal past trauma created the need for this restoration. Traumatic experiences shape an individual’s thought processes, as each decision the individual makes is based upon fearing an uncertain outcome. Throughout Nature, Emerson references a child’s innocence, demonstrating that a child’s perspective has not yet been tainted by experience. Emerson idealizes his past childhood as he endured grievances that motivated him to confront his trauma while in nature himself. An ...


From Renaissance To Robert: The Machiavellian Cycle Of Life, Death, And Rebirth, Noah Huseman Feb 2022

From Renaissance To Robert: The Machiavellian Cycle Of Life, Death, And Rebirth, Noah Huseman

English Senior Papers

In this paper, I explore the recursive nature of cultural commentary as it is informed by evolution of the monster. As one culture rises to prominence, so does the monster which comments upon it. I specifically examine the cultural monstrosity of the Machiavellian archetype as it is portrayed across time, first placing Machiavelli's theory in its original context, then branching out to the cultural context surrounding its appearance in both the literature of Renaissance England and the stories of today. Once I set up the broader theoretical context, I probe more deeply into two literary depictions of the Machiavel ...

Stories That Bark For Themselves: The Fall Of A Rooster And A Princess From Pride To Repentant Humility As Depicted In The Book Of The Dun Cow And The Light Princess, Ella Harris Jan 2022

Stories That Bark For Themselves: The Fall Of A Rooster And A Princess From Pride To Repentant Humility As Depicted In The Book Of The Dun Cow And The Light Princess, Ella Harris

English Senior Papers

Walter Wangerin Jr. and George MacDonald, authors of The Book of the Dun Cow and The Light Princess respectively, created the self-serving characters Chauntecleer the Rooster and the cursed princess. Both characters, ignorant about the subtle strength of those around them and the power of a sacrificial act against encroaching evil, are shown their own insufficiency through the sacrifice of their humble and believed-to-be inconsequential companions. Both companions, Mundo Cani Dog and the prince, willingly sacrifice their lives to conquer the evil powers that threaten lands and to save those whom they love. The actions and behaviors of all four ...


"In Loco Parentis": Student Life Policies At Taylor In The '70s And '80s, Emma Sachsenmaier Oct 2021

"In Loco Parentis": Student Life Policies At Taylor In The '70s And '80s, Emma Sachsenmaier

MAHE Student Scholarship

During the latter half of the twentieth century, student life policies were changing all throughout higher education. Christian institutions were slower to make these changes, largely due to community guidelines and demographics of the student body. Students at Taylor in the '70s and '80s had strong opinions about many of their behavioral standards, including a strict dress code, a ban on dancing, and prohibited opposite-sex visitation. This essay explores what led to these policies changing, how this impacted Taylor, and the broader landscape of higher education at the time.


Archival Research Project: Proposed Move To Fort Wayne In The 60’S, Sarah Chipka Oct 2021

Archival Research Project: Proposed Move To Fort Wayne In The 60’S, Sarah Chipka

MAHE Student Scholarship

In the 1960's, Taylor was in the process of seriously considering a move to a new city following a large campus fire and the election of a new president into office. Taylor even entertained the possibility of a move to the state of Florida. The top contender, however, was Fort Wayne, Indiana. With access to more robust resources, greater growth opportunities, and more community connections, the move was presented as an opportunity to flourish. While conversations amongst the planning committee and the board of trustees continued to happen, there were also advocates for staying in Upland due to deep ...


The Presidency Of David Gyertson, Aiden Reichard Oct 2021

The Presidency Of David Gyertson, Aiden Reichard

MAHE Student Scholarship

In the early 2000s, following the presidency of Jay Kessler, David Gyertson took office as President of Taylor University. Considered a “students president” during his time in office, Kessler managed to garner a very respectable reputation during his years of service to the Taylor community in the position. Many were curious what the next course of action would be for Taylor during Gyertson’s presidency. Very quickly, Gyertson’s time as president would prove to be eventful, yet Taylor would remain strong under his God-led leadership. This paper explores Gyertson’s life before Taylor, as well as his experiences during ...

Looking From Yesterday: Taylor University At 175, Ashley Chu, Tesia Jurasheck, Elizabeth Hammond, Alyssa Lykins Jul 2021

Looking From Yesterday: Taylor University At 175, Ashley Chu, Tesia Jurasheck, Elizabeth Hammond, Alyssa Lykins

Faculty-Mentored Undergraduate Scholarship

“Looking from Yesterday” is the title of Dr. Milo A. Rediger’s 1970 address about the importance of Christian higher education during times of uncertainty and volatility. In this address, Rediger references the “Taylor concept,” which included symbols of oil (light) and the cross as a hopeful sign to the world. Despite its delivery more than 50 years ago, the theme of Rediger’s address still rings true today as we continue to seek to fulfill the mission of Taylor University during our own challenging times. This year (2021-22), Taylor University will recognize its founding 175 years ago. This research ...
