The Palouse offers opportunities for amazing nocturnal views of the stars. We know from Psalm 19 that “the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork,” yet often enough, we may not take enough time to ponder how outer space manifests that glory. The Astronomy Club meetings consist of lessons on a wide variety of astronomical subjects, inviting opportunity for group discussion, research, and exploration. In addition to this, members are given regular occasions to stargaze with telescopes and binoculars, allowing them to put their knowledge into practice.
Civics Club serves as a segue between college life and civic life. At our meetings, we seek to understand how local government functions. What is the difference between city and county government? What can you do in your community to make a difference? At NSA’s Civics Club, we explore various answers to these questions. Join us and discover how you can be a leader who shapes civic culture under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
In conjunction with local Trinity Reformed Church, New Saint Andrews students have been raising money and awareness for the oppressed church in the states and abroad. Their fundraising includes charity races, community services, balls, and dinners. You can find out more about Students for the Relief of the Oppressed on their official Facebook page.
Life Beyond College is a student-organized series of workshops that teaches essential professional skills that go beyond the NSA education. We hope to equip NSA students with tools that allow them to hit the ground running after graduation, and most importantly, to begin thinking beyond college before it’s too late. Learn more or find out about upcoming events on their official Facebook page.
