ACES is an intimate, friendly, diverse student community within St. Joseph’s College. For this website, students are encouraged to share their artistic interests, hobbies, creative skills and hidden talents in addition to reflections on their academic pursuits and college life experiences. This site focuses on extending the ACES community from the classroom to the web by keeping students informed about upcoming ACES events, and providing access to academic advice and creative pursuits from fellow and former ACES students.
Past/Upcoming ACES Events
Feeling a sense of peacefulness and inner calm is how I felt. This past summer, I attended a three-day Buddhism retreat at the Garrison Institute in New York, about an hour train ride north of Grand Central. The retreat was “for university students of Tibetan, Himalayan, and Mongolian descent.” It was my second year attending, and my experience there went beyond my expectations. Actually, I did not know what to expect other than the tentative three-day curriculum sent to participants before our arrival.
