Sam Lemmons

Class

2015


Major/Minor

Biology with Health Professions concentration/Linguistics


Interests

Researching and looking at cars, dissecting the latest electronics, listening to (and attempting to produce) music, recreational video-gaming, analyzing poetry and other literature, and studying/discussing theological topics with others. Owning a pet panda is my biggest life goal, and people are my biggest passion. I love investing in relationships and listening to people’s stories. Since people have been such a tremendous influence on me in my time here at Covenant, I love being involved in campus activities and leadership to give back to this amazing community.


What I enjoy most about Orientation Week

My favorite memory from my orientation week experience was definitely move-in day. Move-in day was my first personal interaction with Covenant’s campus and community. I was nervous and a little intimidated entering into this new phase of my life. Covenant, however, greeted me with smiling faces and servant hearts, putting my fears to rest. Move-in day is a spectacular microcosm of how the community loves and gives. Helping move new students into their new lives here on campus has consistently been my favorite thing about orientation week.

Class

2015


Major/Minor

Sociology/Youth Ministry


Interests

Meeting new people, coffee, late night food runs with hall mates, good conversations, going to events, laughing, creating, and learning more about God.


What I like most about Orientation Week

Orientation week is all about getting to know new people. For me, I loved getting to know my roommate my first week at school and sharing stories from the day with my hall mates. As an orientation team (O-Team) leader I love getting to know other leaders better and it’s exciting to see who is new to campus. It’s a crazy week with lots of activities packed in, but it will always be fun to look back and think about when you first met these people and how far you've come and the random things that have happened.

Major

Biblical & Theological Studies

Hometown

Charlotte, NC


Interests

I enjoy a good game of pick-up soccer and I like to toss the disk. I love hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, caving, camping, and anything else that involves being in the great outdoors with my friends. I love lamp. In November, I'm probably in the woods hunting. Is it raining outside? In that case, I'm inside reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy for the sixth time. Unless, of course, there's a dance party.


What I like most about Orientation Week

I love getting to know new students. I like hearing stories—especially adventurous ones—about people’s lives. I also enjoy being a complete goof-off.

Working with kids, spending time with my friends and my hall, and painting.


What I like most about Orientation Week

Playing basketball, swimming, reading, drinking coffee, hanging out with friends, and hiking.


What I like most about Orientation Week

I enjoy the relationships that you build during orientation week, whether that is with new students or fellow O-Team leaders. It is always fun to watch relationships grow and to introduce new students to Covenant and our special community here. I love being able to share my story of how I came to Covenant and to hear about how God has worked in other peoples' lives to get them to where they are today.
