Goshen College will return to Nicaragua as a location for its unique study abroad program, Study-Service Term (SST), after 30 years in the summer of 2008, according to Director of International Education Tom Meyers. In 1978, the college stopped sending students to the Central American country because it was experiencing great civil unrest that would result in 12 years of war and a devastated economy.

Somewhere in Appalachia, there is a big pile of extra coal: about 3.5 tons, or enough to fill five pick-up trucks. That’s how much coal Rieth Village, a biological field station owned and operated by Merry Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College, didn’t use in the past six months. The five-plus tons of carbon dioxide that are not in the atmosphere are harder to visualize but also important in light of mounting concerns over global warming.
