My brother Ben wasn't much of a student, growing up. He hated homework.

He originally chose to work in a factory instead of going to college.

But then he realized that he wanted more out of life than factory work, so he signed up for Calvin.

He went to classes, and chose a major. He went to China with their study abroad program.

He worked. Hard. School didn't alawys come easy. He worked late into the night sometimes.

He thought about quitting and going back to a normal job.

It was really tempting.

But he kept plugging through it.

He studied. A lot. We wondered who had taken "our" Ben and replaced him with this guy.

And then...


Congratulations, Ben.
