The end of winter break brought a chilly new feature to campus – an ice rink! On January 17, students were invited to make a cup of gourmet hot chocolate to enjoy while skating. The area has been popular since the start of the spring semester and is home to daily hockey games amongst friends or simply skating around after class. Be sure to stop by this new feature and look out for any upcoming events on the ice!

A story in the Nov./Dec. 1851 Chronicle (Concerned conservatives contest criticism) contained a few inaccuracies. First, Christa Case Bryant, the speaker featured in the story, lived in Jerusalem for three years, and not six years in Palestine as the story reported. Second, Bryant was already an employee of the Christian Science Monitor during the 2016 Presidential Election, at which time she began working for the CSM’s National News department. Third, the story reports a gun shop in America sold four weapons in one week which were used to commit suicide, when in fact the number of weapons/suicides was three. We apologize for these errors.

The students involved have showed their passion to eventually become athletic trainers (AT’s) through countless hours of studying and hands-on experiences.
