My Campus Life director has continued to show up for the past two years at our school. He has never forgotten to stop by my lunch table for a bit just to say hi.
I honestly haven’t given him the time of day, but I’m also probably described by others as shy and quiet anyway.
Still, the consistency of Campus Life in the building has allowed me time to warm up to a familiar face.
I chose to go on a trip with Campus Life this past summer, and to my director’s surprise, I decided to engage in some conversation.
We talked about life, and I found myself laughing multiple times as the day went on. As the trip came to a close, I could tell that, relationally, we had connected.
I found myself appreciating an adult’s consistency and meeting me in my space to encourage me to do more.
