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.

“Where did YOU do your study abroad?”

Study abroad used to be an optional experience for students. In today’s climate, however, many employers assume that all students are doing some kind of international study. The question employers ask isn’t, “did you study oversees?” It is now, “where did you do your study abroad?” International study experiences beef up your resume quite a bit.

Many students aren’t able to spend a whole semester oversees. Here’s the good news: Corban offers short international experiences like our Great Britain Academic Tour.

You can join Drs Baker, Kersey, and Tennant and explore historic spots in England and Scotland firsthand. Then when asked about your international study, you can confidently tell them about your academic experiences in London, Oxford, and Edinburgh.

For more information contact Dr. Sam Baker

We will soon be infiltrated by a flock of young students, coming from exotic locations near and far, visiting our beautiful state of Oregon in November to experience life on campus. This is where YOU have the opportunity to open your “home”, share your journey and potentially inspire one (or all!) of these high school students to a path of Christ based education here at Corban. Go check out page 8 in this week’s Hilltop for some insightful and entertaining reasons why you should host. All the nitty-gritty details will be coming soon, but if you are so excited and you are busting with questions, feel free to email me, Michelle!
