DO YOU WANT TO SEE OUR WARRIORS PLAY OREGON STATE?!

Corban University head men’s basketball coach, Steve Masten, announced on Wednesday that the Warriors will be on the Pac-12 Network in a battle against NCAA Division 1 opponent, Oregon State University, on Nov. 18 in Corvallis, Ore., at 7 p.m. “I’m grateful for the chance to play Oregon State for the second year in a row,” commented Masten. “It was one of the highlights of last season, and my players are excited about playing a Pac-12 school at historic Gill Coliseum.” Last season, the Warriors gave the Beavers all they could handle, leading 25-24 with just over five minutes remaining in the first half. After trailing by single digits at halftime, Corban went on to lose the exhibition, 57-77.
The Warriors home-opener, in the C.E. Jeffers Sports Center, will be against New Hope Christian College on Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Seven players return from last season, including its top-four scorers. Senior guard Jordan Carter, sophomore forward Cyrus Ward, sophomore guard Caleb Herzberg, and sophomore guard Toby Roth, all of whom averaged double figures.

Need some Reach questions answered?

Go to Converge, My Courses, Reach. You will find nearly all of your questions answered there. In the meantime, here are a few FAQs:

1. Can I still submit summer Reach work? Yes, go to Converge and read about how you do that. Summer work due by 9-26-2014.
2. Do I need to get “approval” before I register a project? No, just submit (upload) a Project Registration Form through Converge for your Fall 2014 – Spring 2015 Reach work. As long as you are volunteering (not getting paid) at a non-profit organization (includes churches), you’re good to go. If a project is submitted that doesn’t fit these parameters, you will be contacted by email.
3. How do I know how many Reach projects I have completed and how many I have left to do? View your “grade” on the Reach page of Converge. There are four projects for Reach. If you’ve completed one, the grade for that will read “complete.” If you’ve registered for one, but haven’t completed it yet, your grade will read “incomplete.” If you haven’t registered for one, your grade will be blank. If you suspect that your Reach “grade” record is not accurate, it might be because you have outstanding summer work to turn in (due by September 26th). If not, please email our office.

Corban Clips Summer Edition #2!

A MESSAGE FROM THE PROVOST

This year we are reviving a tradition at Corban University to start the school year: Convocation. During chapel on our first day of school, we will be gathering as an academic community to dedicate our heart and mind to God and to celebrate the privilege of learning at a Christ-centered institution. We have been working with ASB to develop a tradition that will serve as a meaningful way to start the academic year.
I look forward to seeing each of you back on campus as we fulfill our mission: to educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.
–Dr. Matt Lucas

SUMMER HAPPENINGS

While you’ve been gone, a new generation of students has been taking advantage of some fun opportunities on the Corban campus this summer.

155 Christian teens attended a week-long Worldview Academy camp that taught them how to share their faith and what it means to be a Christian in today’s secular society. During the week, students participated in lectures, small group discussions, street ministry in downtown Salem, and plenty of free-time Frisbee games.

Corban’s annual Destinations! Theater Camp trained aspiring young actors in the arts of performance and drama. They ended the camp with showcase performances of short plays in the Psalm Center.

Prospective students toured campus and met with Admissions Counselors as part of the Oregon Private College Week. The event gives students an opportunity to compare a variety of campuses as they prepare to make their college selection.

Warrior Summer Sports Camps taught young athletes about teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun while they built foundational skills in their sport. Camps were held for basketball and volleyball. Corban also hosted a Timbers Youth Soccer Camp, with professional soccer players sharing their skills with kids from ages 5-15.

“PICKING UP THE PIECES”

When we look around at the world we live in, the effects of the Fall (Genesis 3) are all too obvious: broken people, shattered families, and fragmented communities. How do you respond? Where do you even begin when the pain seems so overwhelming?
We are excited to announce this year’s theme! The entire Corban community will be focusing on “Picking Up the Pieces” and Psalm 147:3. We will explore together what it means to “pick up the pieces” of our lives in a sin-shattered world and to seek the honesty, humility, and grace to engage the world and embrace the mercy and love of our great God. Get ready for a great year of spiritual growth and encouragement as we focus on this perspective of grace!

___________________________________________________________

NEW SIDEWALKS IN FRONT OF THE LIBRARY

The sidewalks are getting a makeover! Work is underway with demolition of the current sidewalks and lower staircase in front of the library. By the time school starts, the old cracked and chipped sidewalks will be smooth and new.

CORBAN COMMUNITY GARDEN

The Corban Community Garden is quickly taking shape! Over the course of the summer, students have been working to cultivate the land. Currently, there are a variety of vegetables and herbs planted in rows and in raised beds. Through a series of “Garden Parties,” students have been learning about proper organic gardening methods and have had a hand in designing the layout of the garden. Half of the produce generated will be donated to Marion Polk Food Share and other local food banks.
This is a great opportunity for students to get involved! If you’re interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Ben Pearson .
