Episcopal Campus Christian Organization.

May is personally one of my favorite months.  The weather is outrageously wonderful, the earth seems poised for an explosion of greens and blues and flowers.  It is also a month of transitions. ECCO for this school year is winding down, as students take exams and shift to their summer plans.  Some are traveling and some taking on summer school and jobs.
