With exams and research papers piling up, students’ stress levels are at their peaks. At Goshen College, they are taking a different approach. It is the dog days of the school year and what better way for students to unwind than with man’s best friend.
Goshen College has worked in recent years to restore several acres of lawn to native landscaping. Part of that initiative is simulating naturally occurring fires by establishing a controlled burn.
The Goshen College Ecological Stewardship Committee is working to make Goshen College a “tree campus,” similar to the “tree city” concept started by the Arbor Day Foundation.
Students in separate projects held a controlled burn of a prairie field area near Sauder Music Hall and planted trees around campus in order to try and establish it as a “tree campus.”
A group of Goshen College students has produced “Goshen Graphix II,” a collection of illustrated memoirs. “Graphix” is the result of coursework as part of the GC class “English 230, Literature and Pop Culture: The Graphic Novel.” – See more at: http://www.goshennews.com/local/x1445044006/GC-students-produce-pop-culture-publication-for-class#sthash.Tvxgm5ae.dpuf

There will be a release party for “Goshen Graphix II” on Friday, April 4, at Better World Books in Goshen. The graphic novel was written and illustrated by Goshen College students.
A Policy Mic article names Goshen College as the No. 9 biggest waste of tuition money in the United States… but the report was based on just 33 graduates’ self-reported salaries.
