FLU SEASON!

If you haven’t yet experienced this years flu, you may in the coming weeks!
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER…
• Wash your hands with soap a lot! And use your towel to turn off the water.
• Stay away from friends who have a cough, fever, or other signs of flu.
• Every dorm has over the counter medications in the white boxes, near the kitchens (cough drops, cold and flu medicine, etc.).
• Get lots of rest and drink fluids (sounds simple, but is the best way to overcome in a short amount of time).
Don’t go to class sick! Tell your professors you are sick, they will listen.

LIFEPATH RECOVERY

LifePath is a recovery program designed to help people get out of areas that they’ve been stuck in. These groups are conducted as a ministry of Salem Alliance Church. Group topics range from self-esteem issues to grief, loneliness, anger, and more. Some last for 8 weeks and some are ongoing throughout the year. Registration is affordable ($20) and scholarships are available for those in need of assistance.

Corban student Alex Gowan will be co-facilitating a group on women’s sexual integrity with Stephanie Husk starting in January. For more information go to: http://www.salemalliance.org/connect/restorationlifepath/8-week-groups

Testimonial: I took an 8-week course this last semester on the topic of connection, communication, and boundaries and I learned SO much. Some of my favorite things about LifePath are the unique and focused group setting, the wide range of ages in people who attend, and the Spirit-saturated atmosphere. The Lord does amazing work there.

LAST CLIPS OF THE SEMESTER!

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A PART OF “A CHRISTMAS PUPPY FOR ESTHER?”

Less than 48 hours after the story on Esther Suelzle’s battle with stage 4 cancer came out, during a random business contact, a Corban dad heard of a litter of puppies that would be born this month. He immediately knew one of those pups was destined for Esther. He sent Esther’s story to the gentleman, who responded with great excitement. He and his wife have committed that Esther would get one of the puppies for just their cost. (shots, stud fees etc.)

The week of Christmas Esther can choose her puppy, who will be ready to take home the week of Valentines day. With some donations from local businesses and some cash raising by the students of Corban, we should have what we need quickly. This is where you, Corban, come in! Standing outside of chapel tomorrow will be students holding buckets where you can put your contribution, no matter how small, towards the cost of the newest edition to the Suelzle’s family!

YOUR PHOTOS CAN BE IN THE YEARBOOK!

A new program — SNAP! – is available for yearbook. YOU can download photos for the yearbook to include.

We are especially looking for action photos, not posed photos or selfies. We know lots of fun, interesting, exciting, humorous things happen on campus, and our photographers can’t be everywhere. When you submit your photos, you will get photo credit in the yearbook, too.

Here are the directions:
1) Go to yearbookforever.com
2) Click on Community Upload
3) Type in Corban (it will show you Corban College — we plan to get that corrected).
4) It will ask you for the code, which is Corban.
5) Download your photos!

It’s that easy! Sending your action/candid photos (no selfies please) will help the yearbook staff to fill the book with GREAT photos, and it will enable you to see YOUR photos in the yearbook. Any questions email Professor Ellen Kersey.
