Spring 2022: Moments
Currents Editor-in-Chief Emily Morton explains the concept of ‘Moments’ and provides a brief glimpse into the types of moments Currents explores.
Humans tend to focus on the big moments. As emotional and important as those moments can be, it is the imperceptibly small moments that make life worth living.
It wasn’t easy for Resident Director Katy Flinn to summit Mount Kilimanjaro. Yet as she fought altitude sickness and exhaustion, she finished the climb alongside friends, new and old.
Relationships are made up of individual moments that have the power to define them. A single moment could mean the difference between a lifelong relationship or a broken one.

The world of athletics is full of moments of high-stakes competition, hardship, camaraderie and more. Five athletes describe how the moments they experienced in sports shaped their lives.
As a sophomore, Ethan Suh found that joining the Pepperdine Baseball team as a walk-on is no small feat. Looking back now as a senior, Suh said the process came down to hard-work, determination and a lot of running.
