Each month's character trait was selected to coincide with what students are experiencing during that month.
April - Hope
"Hope is the opposite of fear." Everyone should have hope in their lives, whether it is for better grades, a winning sports team, or being a better person. St. Francis de Sales states that "Let us serve God well today; he will provide for tomorrow."

September - Patience
"Be patient with everyone, but above all with yourself." Attending college is a new and exciting experience for students. Students need to have patience with parents, professors, roommates and ultimately themselves. ". . . No doubt that God is holding you by the hand; if he allows you to stumble, it is only to let you know that if he were not holding your hand, you would fall."

October - Trust/Cooperation
"What great satisfaction it is for someone truly dedicated to God to walk with eyes closed." If everyone could truly trust in God and understand that he will "take care of all and manage all" we would all truly walk with our eyes closed because of the trust in Him.

November - Perseverance
Daily life may seem to be very chaotic with midterms, classes, roommates, and a whole host of things. Students can set goals for themselves then persevere and strive to accomplish them. To persevere is to pick yourself up after being thrown down, continually striving for one's personal best, and not giving up on a goal until you have completed it.

January - Welcome Back Month!
February - Love
St. Francis de Sales tell us that "We must try to keep our hearts continually unshakably serene throughout the challenges of life." Love for a college student could mean many things, love between a boyfriend or girlfriend, love of parents and love of a video game. But St. Francis tells us that no matter what happens in our lives we must ever look and tend toward the love of God.

March - Forgiveness
Forgiveness in our society today is may times overlooked. It is very easy for one person to hold a grudge or feelings of resentment toward another but this only slowly destroys the person who is resentful. When people truly forgive others for their wrongs, they fully forgive them in their heart.
