Welcome Dinner and Keynote Address: A 500 Mile Journey: Lessons of Faith, Love, and Friendship

Born a little over 36 hours apart, Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray have been blessed with a lifelong friendship. They are no strangers to challenges. Some they have chosen, while others have been thrust upon them. Despite Justin living life from a wheelchair due to a progressive neuromuscular disease, he and Patrick conquered the Camino de Santiago, making their way across 500 miles from France to the Cathedral of Santiago. Justin and Patrick use many of the lessons to shed light on the inescapable love of God.

iGen: Understanding the Smartphone Generation

Today’s elementary through college students are now iGen (born after 1995), the first generation to spend their entire adolescence with smartphones. Perhaps as a result, they are fundamentally different from the generations before them. iGen is growing up more slowly as adolescents, taking longer to engage in adult activities such as working, driving, dating, having sex, and drinking alcohol. iGen spends more of their leisure time with digital media and less time seeing their friends face-to-face; they also spend less time sleeping. This pattern of time use is associated with compromised mental and physical health, which might explain why rates of depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide suddenly increased after smartphones became common around 2012. Overall, iGen is physically safer but more mentally vulnerable. We'll conclude with implications for the college admissions process and ways to help iGen find a better balance with technology and be healthier and happier.
