FILM FESTIVAL

As has been announced previously, the Film Festival is just around the corner! In about 3 WEEKS, on Sunday March 15, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy some amateur films created by your very own classmates. The Festival will be a part of the Spring Formal event at the Salem Convention Center in the Willamette Ballroom.

In order to have a successful night, we need your film submissions!  Many of you have already begun the production process. As you create your movies, keep these rules in mind:

  • There is a 3 minute minimum and 10 minute maximum length for film submissions.
  • Film submissions are due on Wednesday March 11 from 2-5pm, 4 days before the event. At this point, we will review the films and request any edits as needed. This will allow you, the filmmakers, to have time to make edits before the event.
  • Films must be submitted in .mp4or .wmv format.

The films will be judged by a panel of judges and awards will be given based on film quality (there are no specific categories this year). The awards are:

  • Best Character (not Actor, but the best character concept)
  • Best Screenplay (based on quality of plot, dialogue, etc.)
  • Best Cinematography (based on quality of camera angles, lighting, etc.)
  • Best Soundtrack (based on the music’s representation of the film itself)
  • Best Film Editing (based on the continuity, uniformity, clarity etc. of the editing)
  • Best Picture (overall)

Good luck and break a leg!

VOLUNTEER CLIENTS NEEDED FOR MASTERS COUNSELING STUDENTS

Our Masters in counseling program needs volunteer clients. If you’re willing to come talk about yourself and your life on tape for 45-50 minutes, you can help the counseling students continue to develop their counseling skills? Come once or schedule several appointments, your choice. Talk about anything from indecision about your major, roommate issues, school stress, or anything else you would like to talk about. Please remember these are beginning counseling students. If you think you may have a more serious clinical problem then you should contact the counseling center on campus instead of volunteering with us.
These taped sessions are used to give clinical feedback to the counseling students and the tapes are deleted as soon as the student counselor presents the tape in supervision. This process makes them better counselors and prepares them to go out into agencies in the fall.
If you’re willing to help the student counselors work on their skills please respond by emailing Mary Aguilera. In your response please give me the times you are available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. (Tues. 9 a.m.-4 p.m.), and if you would prefer a male or a female student counselor. My teaching assistant, Andrea Blake, will contact you with an appointment time. The counseling room is AC5524 on the 5th floor.

It is a simulation, not a game.  The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people. It will be an impactful and practical way of stirring hearts to serve those living in poverty.

CORBAN EXPERIENCE KUDOS

From Chris Vetter: I want to say thank you to everyone for another great Corban Experience event. We welcomed nearly 170 prospective students and their parents to campus over the weekend. I want to say a special thank you to Campus Care and Campus Safety for their extra work over the weekend – especially when we had the tree come down. Also to Aramark for all the efforts made to take good care of our guest through food service. MARCOMM came through again with some great materials for the event as well. Faculty – thank you for taking the time to show up on Monday and meet students and also for welcoming visitors to your classes.

Finally our students deserve thanks as well. Many of them invited strangers into their rooms and did a great job of making them feel welcome. The students also provided some great talent for Sunday night as well. It is the people that make Corban University the special place that it is – thanks for all that you do.

From Michelle Fahlgren: Thunder, lightning and even a fallen tree could not disrupt the awesome time our Corban Experience guests had this past weekend! HUGE thank you to all that hosted one or more of the visitors we had for the night. Reviews have come back positive and this weekend was beyond blessed despite the rainy Oregon welcome. Your voices and insight are so appreciated during this event, so thank you and have a wonderful – slightly less hectic- weekend!

FROM THE LIBRARY:

  • Have you ever faced the frustration of finding a study room during finals week?
  • Have you ever felt odd for peeking in windows trying to figure out if someone was using the room?

Corban Library has a solution for you. **Door Hangers**
Like hotel rooms with their “room service” and “do not disturb” signage. These door hangers will communicate with those outside the study room.
Occupied – means that someone is using the room. This allows for a quick glance to see if the room is free to use.
You Are Welcome To Study In Here – the room might be occupied but you do not mind someone using the other part of the table to study, or to sit in a corner and read for class, etc.
The library hopes that you will be gracious and allow others to study in a room with you.
The door hangers will be in the study rooms on the second floor of the library only starting February 9th.

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.

Corban 3.1 Run:
The sky was gray and gloomy on September 27th but 14 brave students woke up at the crack of dawn to run their hearts out. 10 women and 4 men ran the windy trail and as their heart rates rose and the adrenaline rush was pulsing through their bodies – 3 fast students took home a trophy for their victory.

Students had a blast coming out & releasing some energy in a friendly competitive manner.

It was Wednesday October 1st when competing teams trucked down Warrior drive to the Intramural field to give it all they had to decide the title. Standing champions 2 years in a row, Top Geer and a highly competitive team, as did The Baggenstos who were there to bring it. The Baggenstos gave it all they had and stole the title of champions for Ultimate Frisbee Intramurals 2014.

18 hole 4 player Disc Golf Tournament:
Three teams took it to the Corban Disc Golf course and enjoyed the beautiful 80-degree weather on Friday October 3rd 2014. 11 men and 1 women took on the challenge of 18 holes to define the Fall 2014 Corban Disc Golf Champions. We enjoyed seeing the faces of our alumni out there with the Corban Students and Staff playing the course starting the Homecoming and Alumni Weekend off right.

Spike Ball:
A new sport was presented this year to the Corban community… SPIKE BALL! A combination of speed and accuracy is needed for this intense sport and 10 brave teams of 2 arose from the student body to take on the challenges of this sport. These teams faced great matches every Tuesday and Thursday night until the last night. It was 9p.m. when Chase Silver & Timothy Yee representing team Dustin Cooper, and Micah Leatuyer & Barrett James representing team Fresh Meat, came to one last match. And the champion of Corban’s first ever Spike Ball Intramural went to… Fresh Meat!
