SOL Club is the Student Organization of Latinos here at PUC and welcomes all students. Every year the SOL Club takes students to Albion Biological Field Station, located just two hours north from PUC. The students are able to enjoy camping by the ocean, soaking in God’s nature, and spending time with friends for the weekend.
This annual weekend at Albion is full of activities including canoeing, kayaking, playing games, while also taking time to relax. Going to Albion gives students the chance to be in a different environment and allows them to take a break from school and work, and to relax by the ocean and worship together.
Misael Bernard, the Religion VP for the SOL Club, was kind enough to share his experience.
Let’s talk about the Sol Club. What made you decide to join?
What made me join the SOL Club was the idea and purpose behind the club. SOL Club is on campus to offer students an opportunity to have a family-like environment while being here at school. Home to me is where family is and being part of the SOL Club, it’s as if I haven’t left home.
What made you choose to join the club on their Albion trip this year?
I wanted to go to Albion because of how fun it looked. I saw an opportunity to “get off the hill” and enjoy a weekend up north with friends.
What did you do?
The weekend at Albion was full of activities, chances to be in nature and a part of God’s nature, and also time to spend with friends.
How has this trip impacted you?
This trip has really made me realize it’s always important to take a break from my busy life of school and work and just enjoy the weekend. Enjoy the time with friends and family.
What is your favorite part about spending time at Albion?
My favorite part of Albion was the campgrounds itself. Being close to the ocean, camping, and with friends, I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. Albion is such a beautiful place and being there was simply a rewarding experience and another way to grow my relationship with God in nature.
