    Zach's Bio:
    I am a Senior Global, Cultural and Language Studies major, with a Spanish minor. I am also taking the prerequisites for PA school, which I plan to attend after undergrad. Due to my diverse area of study I usually have to spend quite a bit of time studying, but after hitting the books I can always find something to do here at CSS. You can usually find me hanging out at the rock wall in the BWC but as soon as the snow hits I take every chance I can to get out to Spirit Mountain. I’m enjoying life now and I’m excited to see what CSS has for me in the future!

There and Back Again… A Saint’s Tale, by Zachary Paul Friederichs

la foto (4)


In a house on 9th and 9th there lived four Saints. Not a nasty, littered house filled with beer cans and empty liquor bottles, nor yet a house filled with overworked, sleep deprived workaholics: It was a saint’s home, and that means comfort.

It had a perfectly rectangular door, with a Saints sticker adorned directly in the exact middle. The door opened on to a hallway leading to a realm heavy with academic thirst. The walls were lined with textbooks and the tables were filled with open notes, parceled research articles and half written term papers–the Saints were fond of learning.

They fell to talking of their times together as four years of scholastic adventure have now come to a close. The Saints had developed a deeper understanding of the complex world in which they are surrounded. With the world’s issues now revealed to them, each Saint has realized their quest. Endowed with the Benedictine values–community, hospitality, love of learning, respect and stewardship–the Saints go forth to address these issues.
