Cardinal & Cream, Union’s student-run newspaper, printed a story today about what happens to a student at the university if they were to become pregnant while enrolled as a student. It was definitely a very interesting and well-written piece that revealed to readers that the university would find a way to accommodate the student. Though she would not be able to live on campus after a certain point of her pregnancy, the university would not expel of kick the student out, which was the shocker for me.
Prior to this article, I, as well as many others of this university, believed that students would be automatically expelled, no question about it. However, its been revealed to me that situations like this are handled with grace by the university.
This opened my eyes to how quick we are to assume that scary situations, like becoming pregnant, are handled without grace and we automatically assume the worst. As Christians, we should not be quick to judge others and have grace upon them. This article and several events of this week has shown me that grace is necessary.
