Goshen College’s student run radio station, 91.1 FM The Globe, (WGCS), is in the running for the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System’s (IBS) “Best College Radio Station in the Nation” for a fifth year in a row, having won twice (2011 and 2013), the only station to claim the title more than once.
Goshen College radio students won first place in two categories and were named finalists in three other in the College Broadcasters, Inc. (CBI) National Student Radio Production Awards last weekend in Seattle. In addition, 91.1 FM The Globe (WGCS) was also named a Spectrum Award finalist by the Indiana Broadcasters Association (IBA) for Station of the Year and Best Promotional Campaign last week.
For the second time in three years, a Goshen College student took first place in the bi-national intercollegiate C. Henry Smith Oratorical Contest sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) U.S. Abby Deaton, a senior communication major from Indianapolis, won with her speech, “The Welcome Table: Discussing Goshen College’s Hiring Policy.”
Six international courses will take students across the globe to Nepal, Kenya, Greece, Italy, China, Spain and Morocco – and that’s doesn’t even include the summer Study-Service Term (SST) units in Peru, Senegal and Nicaragua that begin in May. Many of these classes are interdisciplinary and open to all students regardless of year or major.
