Carroll College, Helena Montana

Free Workouts for Students, Staff and Faculty!

Twice each school year, six fitness centers in town have agreed to let Carroll faculty, staff and students try out their facilities – for one week for free!

Fuel Fitness
Capital City Health Club
Broadwater Hot Springs & Fitness
Crossroads Sports & Fitness
Loft Yoga Studio @ Great Northern

Just show your Carroll ID and enjoy the gyms! Attend a class. If married, bring the spouse. Check their websites for programs and hours of each club! And, if you fall in love with one, they’ll be thrilled to provide you details on the Carroll College discounts for membership.

Starts Friday morning, Jan. 22, 2016, the first weekend after classes start, and ends Sunday night, Jan. 31, 2016, nine days later. That’s two weekends to fall in love with working out. Swim, lift weights, row a boat, ride a bike, be elliptical, tread ’til you sweat, strike the eight-angle pose, stretch while you Om, take a class!

Brought to you by your Carroll health and wellness committee. Questions? Ask Brent, or (406) 459-2371.


We Need Debate Judges!

Carroll's High School Debate tournament is Dec 4-5 and is the largest ever! Could you judge a round or two? We offer three types of debate:

  1. Policy debate will discuss domestic surveillance by the Federal Government.
  2. Lincoln Douglas debate will discuss whether juries should be given the power to acquit someone if they believe the law violated was unjust. (It's called "jury nullification.")
  3. Public Forum debate whether standardized testing in K-12 schools is beneficial or harmful.

We need judges at4, 6 & 8pm Fri;8 & 10pm Sat; and1pm Sat (quarterfinals). Ask your teachers about extra credit for this community service - quite a few teachers agreed last year! Sign up online.
