Max Pape ‘22
Family and service have always been important to Max Pape ‘22. Being at Springfield College has expanded his concept of both.
Max has made numerous connections across campus. He is a New Student Orientation leader, participates in the Humanics in Action Club, is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and volunteered for an alternative spring break trip last year. All of this has been made possible through the Springfield College Fund.
“I'm passionate about trying to help others,” Pape said. “When I first visited Springfield and learned about the whole Humanics philosophy, I knew that was where I wanted to go.”
Max’s other passion is the baseball team, where he plays infield. While the move to distance learning has created physical distance between Max and his teammates, the use of technology has kept them together.
During the spring semester, the team had regular Zoom conference chats where they kept in touch and challenged one another with workouts. They even started a book club, with Coach Simeone breaking up the team into groups by position and assigning them different books. Max and the rest of the infielders read and discussed The Little Book of Talent.
Whether it’s engaging in service opportunities, joining student clubs, or using the technology that allows Max to connect with teammates while being thousands of miles apart, the Springfield College Fund makes it all possible.
