“The story that is Goshen College has always contained within it the narrative seeds of the vision described in Scripture: a “tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit … with leaves for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:2). Not one, not two, not six, but 12 kinds of fruit. All on one tree. Truly it is a tree of life!”
Thanks to James Gingerich’s leadership, the health center is guided by its mission and its stories. It was through storytelling that the people who cared about the center came to realize that in most of the iconic stories important to the center, when people focused on needs, needs multiplied. When they focused on assets, assets multiplied.

Goshen College students took a break from preparing for final exams to hangout with some four-legged friends Monday afternoon.
The student club Eco-Pax went out picking dandelions on Sunday and today Chef Jeremy Corson created six dishes for lunch using them.
They aren’t just weeds, and some in the Goshen community already know of the plant’s delicious possibilities.
With exams and research papers piling up, students’ stress levels are at their peaks. At Goshen College, they are taking a different approach. It is the dog days of the school year and what better way for students to unwind than with man’s best friend.
