Fourteen Goshen College students are participating in the Maple Scholars Summer Research Program. Started in 1998, Maple Scholars is an eight-week program of research, experimentation, analysis and archiving data.
Goshen College recently recognized 260 students for excellence in academics on the 2013-14 spring semester Dean’s List. The Dean’s List includes students earning at least a 3.75 GPA, while completing at least 12 hours of course work for a letter grade. Only grades from the designated semester are included in the Dean’s List selection process.
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.
Each winter, as many as 3,000 Amish people from “up north” trade in their buggies for three-wheeled tricycles and join the small year-round Amish population in Pinecraft. Because of the spontaneous nature of Pinecraft’s growth, there are concerns about its safety, building permits, land use and ordinance codes. With the help of two Goshen College students and a recent graduate, these concerns are finally being addressed.
