JoyceAllen_VictoriaFalls_SnapshotBoth Audrey Hudgins (Matteo Ricci College) and Joyce Allen (Registrar) sent in photos from Professionals Without Borders' service trip to Zambia this summer. Pictured here is Joyce's team, which, she says, "helped dig trenches in preparation for pouring a cement footing and the subsequent brick and mortar security wall project at a medical clinic in Chipembele, Zambia. This photo is at Victoria Falls, located at the very southern tip of Zambia. What you see is the amazing joy of community and accomplishment." Students present in the picture are clockwise from the bottom in the white rain poncho:  Alex Tsway, Erin Flanagan, Madison Goverde, Shreya Shirude, Mathew Lane and Renee Vandermause.

EddieSalazar_SnapshotAlong with two philosophy faculty, Jason Wirth and Elizabeth Sikes, and four SU students, Eddie (Daichi) Salazar participated in a five-day Zen intensive in Yokoji Japanese Zen monastery. The daily routine involved waking at 4 a.m. with many rounds of sitting meditation, liturgy, meals and work detail. The two-week tour also involved visiting many temples in Kyoto, and a visit to the Hiroshima Peace Museum. Here, Daichi is taking a moment of supreme enlightenment.
