January/February 2021

About this issue:

The coronavirus radically changed how we interact with the world around us. Those changes extend to higher education. Through it all, Walla Walla University continues to seek to create a campus environment where a growing, personal walk with God is nurtured in each student. In the January/February Gleaner, meet Walla Walla University students who are finding meaning and purpose while attending our Northwest Seventh-day Adventist university campus.
