  1. Seminary life: Advanced students, what do you know now that you wish you had known when you started graduate school? How do you balance your personal, academic, and professional lives?
  2. Political activism: How are you expressing your political passions? With what organizations, events, and causes are you engaged, and how? Photos and essays are encouraged.

  1. As the voice of the community at Austin Seminary, suitable content should reflect a spirit of curiosity, inclusivity, and sensitivity.
