Our 2018-2019 Student Associates
Hi! My name is Jenny Ward and I am from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am studying Astrophysics at MSU. I grew up in an ELCA church, and I love how welcoming and joyful the people are. I look forward to welcoming new students into our campus community this year!
Hi! My name is Megan Kotnik and I am a junior at Michigan State studying Secondary Mathematics Education with a minor in Psychology. I am from Commerce, Michigan which is about an hour east of here. I love that One Community provides a fun space where college students can celebrate faith together, and I am so excited to spend the year working with my other associates to make One Community great for everyone involved.
Hello! My name is Jack Walch and I am a junior studying Chemistry. I am originally from Wisconsin and decided to go to MSU because of family connections and a great chemistry program. I am part of campus ministry because faith has always been a huge part of my life and being a part of a group like this is a great way for me to continue to grow and serve.
My name is Eric Podolsky and I am a sophomore majoring in Computer Science. I’m from Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, where I grew up on a hobby farm with four alpacas. I came to ULC because I grew up in a Lutheran church back home, and I instantly found a home in One Community. It’s a place full of the nicest people I’ve met on campus. This summer I was a camp counselor at Springhill camps, and I’m looking forward to sharing what I learned about faith and community!
