Czech Republic SOS Meeting

If you are interested in being part of an SOS trip this year, the Czech Republic team is meeting in the Library Conference room this Monday, Dec. 11, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Six to eight students have an amazing opportunity to participate in the good things God is doing in the Czech Republic. This meeting will inform you about the application process, provide tips for writing support letters, and help answer any other questions you have. Furthermore, the Christmas season is an ideal time to begin raising funds for your trip, and this meeting will help equip you to tell friends and family about the opportunity you have to participate in a church growth and planting ministry in the Czech Republic. If you cannot make it to the meeting but still want information about this SOS trip, please contact Annette Harrison at aharrion@corban.edu.

Textbook Donations

Wondering what you are going to do with some of your textbooks that you will not need this upcoming spring?  Want to find a good use for them?  Consider donating your used textbooks to the Corban University Library!  What will the library do with it?  The library began this fall semester (2017) putting some textbooks on reserve, making the few copies we have available to all students.  We will be doing the same this upcoming spring (2018) and we would love to add to our growing collection.  Donated textbooks will be placed on reserve (which means that students can check it out for 2-hours, enabling more students to get access to it) whenever a course utilizing that book for a required or recommended purchase is being offered.  This means that students will be able to get access to your donated text and may not have to purchase the text for a course.  If interested, textbooks can be dropped off at the library’s circulation desk.  Please contact Garrett Trott (gtrott@corban.edu) if you have any questions.
