Making the most of college (second annual)

This is our second annual issue of Comment with the theme "Making the most of college" (or university). Our September issue focuses on the cultivation of community: making and learning alongside the friends who will shape us. We hope you will also learn how to cultivate your convictions, how to lead, and how to seek the shalom of the city in which you live. And don’t forget delights like cheering on sports teams or dressing well!
