New Start on the Year
Students are back and the campus is bustling with activity once again. Winter break was restful for some but busy for others, like our construction crews. Over the past month, tremendous progress was made on both the new Hunthausen Activity Center – scheduled to open its doors to students within the month – as well as the new chapel, with its stunning interior beams in place. Stay tuned for more updates!
Have friends and family with students looking into colleges? We’d love to meet them! Carroll College is hitting the road and will be in Seattle, Spokane and Portland in late January to meet with all interested prospective students and their families. This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Carroll College - each program will feature highlights from admission and financial aid representatives, as well as a professor. Share your love of Carroll and let folks know about these upcoming information programs.
Hopefully by now you’ve received our latest edition of the Carroll Magazine in the mail.  If not, it is now available to read online. Features include an update on campus construction projects, innovative new academic initiatives, an interview chronicling volleyball coach Moe Boyle’s path to Carroll, and a q&a with celebrated author and alum, Virginia Reeves. Many thanks to all of our contributing writers – Dr. Jeanette Fregulia, Dr. Colin Irvine, Dr. Eric Hall, Dr. Loren Graham, Tom McCarvel, and Jerek Wolcott. Check it out – let us know what you think!

In December, the Constitutional Studies Center at Carroll College brought Alberto Coll of Depaul University and John Yoo of the University of California-Berkeley to campus to debate the following question: “What are the War Powers of the U.S. President?” View the debate here.
This debate, which Professors Coll and Yoo have undertaken at many institutions across the country, has been featured in the New York Times and brought a timely and important debate to the Helena community.  This event is part of a yearlong program entitled "Executive Authority and Constitutional Government."
 “It was a fantastic community event, constituting a rare opportunity to hear national scholars in constitutional law in Helena,” said Associate Professor William Parsons, Director of the Constitutional Studies Center.
Saints in Service
Thank you to all who donated to Carroll’s Engineers Without Borders Holiday Campaign. Thanks to the generosity brought in by over 70 donations and the generous dollar-for-dollar match of Willis and Nancy Wetstein up to $10,000, Carroll EWB surpassed their $25,000 fundraising goal by several thousand dollars. “Thanks to all for the great support you give to Carroll Engineers Without Borders. It is with your support that we are able to accomplish important work like this to improve the lives of the poor in Guatemala, St. Lucia, and Uganda,” said Professor John Scharf, Faculty Advisor to CC-EWB.

“Much Ado About Nothing” presented by the Carroll College Theatre Department, Feb. 9-12 and 16-18, Carroll College FLEX Theatre, Campus Center, Carroll College
With themes and design borrowed from the 1930s in Italy, Shakespeare’s crowd pleasing “Much Ado About Nothing” tells the story of cousins who handle the pressure to marry in different ways. Hero is drawn into the romance and tradition of arranged marriage, while Beatrice is convinced that no man will ever be perfect enough to entice her to choose to marry. Traps are thrown and lies are told while fools foil plots, villains fight for privilege, and justice strives to win in this classic comedy.
Shows will be 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 9, 10, 11, 16, 17  & 18 with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Feb. 12.
Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors, $2 for Carroll students and employees (id required). For more information, visit the Carroll Theatre Season webpage.
