Accomplishments & Accolades
This week, the Artaza Center for Excellence in Global Education awarded more than $13,000 in scholarships to students who will participate in global education programs during winter break and spring semester.  On the October 1st deadline, the Artaza Center received a record number of applications for international programs (76 students!) and also a record number of applications for the Artaza Center Student Scholarship. They received 25 complete applications for scholarships, and were able to award 12 scholarships.
“We are pleased to be able to support these deserving students,” said Cheri Long, director of the Artaza Center. “Scholarships are awarded to students who are participating in Carroll College international programs or Carroll-sponsored programs, who give compelling reasons for their choice to study or serve abroad, and exhibit financial need.  What is particularly exciting is that we are supporting students from a wide variety of majors, from anthrozoology and engineering to the sciences and nursing, to go for a full semester to study abroad, as well as short-term service programs such as Gap Medics and Medicine in Mexico,” said Long.
Eleven members of the Carroll College Talking Saints forensics team were recently honored with Northwest Forensics All-Conference recognition for the 2015-2016 season. In addition, the Talking Saints season began in Billings on September 13 where the 12 first-year team members competed in the Rimrock Classic at Rocky Mountain College. Read more.

The Faint Young Sun Paradox with Dr. Kelly Cline, Nov 3, 2016, 7 p.m., 101/202 Simperman/Wiegand Amphitheatre, Carroll College
The sun, the earth, and the other planets of our solar system formed together about 4.6 billion years ago.  Astronomers calculate that when the sun first formed, it was a lot less bright than it is today and has gradually become brighter over time.  Because the sun started off so much less bright, four billion years ago the earth should have been a much colder place, so cold that all the earth’s oceans should have been frozen.  However, geologists say that this is wrong:  The rocks tell us that the earth’s oceans were liquid and warm, even in the very distant past.  How is this possible?  How was the young earth able to stay warm, even though the sun was putting out a lot less energy?  Scientists all over the world have proposed lots of very interesting ideas to figure out this unsolved mystery.  Join Dr. Kelly Cline for a discussion of the search for the answer to the faint young sun paradox. This event is free and open to the public.
