Student Profiles: Peter Steinman

November 17, 2009

Name: Peter Steinman

Age: 20

Year: Sophomore

From: Huntington  Beach, California

Major: Entrepreneurial Business

What’s your favorite class? Definitely, Professors Jackson’s Project Execution. It helps me to realize how much planning and work goes into a single event. I’m working with another business student to put on the Senior Student Appreciation Dinner — which is going on, tomorrow, wow, that’s so soon! I never realized how much stuff can go wrong — I tend to be a guy who likes to plan things out, but have never gone the whole ten yards. This class has helped me to carry everything out in its entirety.

Do you have any hobbies? Going camping on a regular basis and sailing! It’s so great to live in San Diego… within 15 minutes you can be in downtown SD, at a number of fantastic beaches, Legoland, Seaworld, and a bunch of other cool stuff.  On the weekends, sometimes I’ll head out with a group of students to Cardiff Beach to go surfing.

Do you participate in any Student Life? I’m the Chaplin in Student Government, something which I enjoy immensely. I’m also involved in a number of clubs at the school such as the,  The Anime Club and the Business Club. In the Business club we watch “Shark Tank” and “Dragon’s Den”, two commercialized business pitching shows.  Afterward, we always have some great discussions about the young entrepreneurs on the show by trying to figure out both the flaws and positives of their business plan. It’s a really great learning tool for our future jobs.

What is your favorite thing about JP Catholic? The location! Also,  it’s really easy for me to go home since I’m only an hour away.  Another thing great about JP Catholic is the community life. I love being at a small school because of the close friendships and dynamic fellowship which we all share. Lastly, it’s awesome being able to attend mass every day and having the adoration chapel within a few feet from my classroom.

Plans after graduation?
As far as after I graduate,  basically two rough idea have been playing around in my head. The two I’m spearheading currently is a nightclub or a record company. “House” is the name of the night club I’ve been working on. The name is due to the fact that I want to give college students the experience to go to a house party without having to compromise their safety or morals. I love parties, but the party is no longer fun when things get out of hand.

Name: Timmerie MillingtonTimmerie Millington

Age: 17

Year: Freshman

From: Lake Arrowhead, California

Major: Entertainment Media

What’s your favorite class? Poetics and Grammer with Professor Riley because I really enjoy writing. The class gives me a whole new perspective on how speak to my audience in a much more clear and concise way.  Right now we are reading, “The Great Divorce” by C.S. Lewis.

Do you have any hobbies? I absolutely love to dance! I’ve been dancing for about 16 years and enjoy many different kinds of dance –ballet, tap, dance , hip hop, modern, ballroom, and west coast swing. I’m actually going to be starting a hip hop club for any of the students who are interested.

Do you participate in any Student Life? Definitely! I began a pro-life club for students who really want to take action weekly and participate in local pro-life events such as praying at abortion clinics and participating in the  March for life in San Fransisco.

What is your favorite thing about JP Catholic? The spiritual life! I really enjoy being around other people who have a great passion to be closer to God, whether that may be through daily Mass, Adoration, or  praying the Rosary together. We all hold each other accountable and push each other forward in developing a stronger spiritual life. Also, I love the hands on aspect of the school.  Right now, I’m on the marketing team for a webisode series and have been learning all the ways you can utilize Twitter for your business. I also have been involved on quite a few student film projects.

Plans after graduation? Well, I’m still bouncing around some ideas…I may potentially stay here an extra year to do the Masters in Theology Program. One thing I do know for sure, when I graduate I want to do pro-life work by promoting the culture of life through the media.

What’s happening with the Senior Film Majors?

August 21, 2009

So…graduation is just a few months away, and the senior film students are buckeling down on their final thesis film projects. This is a huge undertaking –Some are full-feature length projects and still others are bringing on professional SAG actors who have been on major budget films. I’ve been fortunate to have the great experience of producing one of the senior film project’s and am looking forward to our first day of shooting this weekend. Now, 3 months later since undertaking this task, it’s been a lot of work, from making phone calls to caterers, to scheduling actors, scouting out locations, and filling out paper work with SAG. Pre-production is certainly key for a smooth shoot–but, whew, exhausting! Stay posted to hear how this weekend turns out…I’ll be posting pictures on our facebook page. Lights, Camera, Action!

Surf, Sand, and S’mores!

August 11, 2009

So, JP Catholic Student Government kicked off the summer quarter with a fabulous and fun all student Lua at the lovely La Jolla Shores! Students hit the warm waves with boogey and surf boards while others went at it in an competitive sand castle contest… Being the artistic school that we are, a few Michaelangelos of the group created a full sized sand creation of  the crocodile from Peter Pan…

Other highlights of the evening was an intense game of beach volleyball, frisbee (with some pretty epic dives into the sand), and a delicious feast of hot dogs and hamburgers roasted over the bonfire pit.

After a scintillating sunset and some sticky s’mores loaded with Hershey’s (Mmmm!), everyone gathered close to the ocean near the ebbing water to pray the Rosary. The stars dazzled over us as we concluded a fantastic evening at the beach. San Diego is such a gem!
