Every January here at Messiah we have what we call J-Term. Everyone generally takes one class and you have it every day either 8-12 or 1-4 (rarely are you in class that entire time). Usually people take some sort of GenEd course and just enjoy their time with friends. We end up having a bunch of free time and just hang out, go sledding on Cemetery Hill, or just waste time doing who knows what. J-Term is also a great time to go on a short term Cross Cultural trip. Last January I spent 3 weeks in New Zealand basically just hanging out and traveling the North Island, it was fantastic. And a bunch of my friends traveled to Ghana, Costa Rica, Kenya, South Africa or Mexico. So whether you’re in Grantham or abroad for J-Term I guarantee you’ll have a blast… and that is why J-Term rocks!
