Race to 2025
Did you know that there are more than 130 Sign Languages used by the deaf around the world, or that a Signed Language doesn’t follow the same rules and patterns of vocabulary and grammar as the languages spoken by hearing people? Wycliffe Bible Translators is sponsoring a fundraiser for Sign Language Bible translations in Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia. Race to 2025 pits teams of four against physical, mental and spiritual challenges in a race to raise money for Bible translation work around the world. The next race in our area is at Tall Timber Ranch in Washington during the weekend of March 14-16. There isn’t much time left to join! Contact Alan Wymore (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Race Coordinator Kris Russel (email@example.com) to sign up. More info at http://www.wycliffenextgen.com/page/race-to-2025-1.
Whether you go or pray, check out this amazing video that will tell you more about the need for Bible translations for deaf communities:
PLANNING TO PRE-REGISTER FOR SUMMER OR FALL CLASSES?
Dear Student, we are rapidly approaching pre-registration for Summer Term (April 7–25) and for Fall 2014 (March 31—May 2). Let me give you a simple check list to see if you will be held up, or if you will sail through!
_____ I have a balance due
_____ I have not made arrangements for payments (that means you have called the Financial Services office and you have given them an amount and a date the payment will be made). Please call to set up a payment plan—just remember that we have March, April and May remaining for payments to be made this year.
_____ I have undisbursed financial aid for the 2013 – 2014 year showing on my Financial Aid Online “Disbursements” tab at www.aid.corban.edu.
_____ My Financial Aid will not pay all of my balance due. A Financial Aid Counselor would be happy to help you learn about additional loan options.
_____ I have not applied for loans to pay for the rest of my balance.
If you have checked the first item and no others, you will sail through!
If you have checked any of the rest, your Pre-registration will be delayed until those items are completed.

Counseling Class goes on Field Trip!
On Wednesday, February 26, Laurie Smith’s Community Agency Counseling class took a field trip to Willamette Valley Hospice in West Salem. We had an amazing and informative conversation with Melissa Lindley, the Community Outreach Coordinator. Students learned about the philosophy of hospice care, the community that is served, and the ways that volunteers can serve. We see many opportunities for Corban students to serve!
