Four of the fall sports teams are still in competition as the winter teams begin to compete. The Calvin women's soccer team won an NCAA regional at Calvin November 14-15 to advance to the next round of tournament action to be held November 20-21 at Augustana, Ill. The men's soccer team and men's and women's cross country teams also are all still alive in NCAA post-season action and also will compete this coming weekend. See the sports information homepage for all of the details on upcoming NCAA tournament action, and watch videos from men's and women's soccer action on the News & Stories page.
Each year the Calvin Campus Store hosts the Wikki Stix for Kix Contest where students receive free packets of colorful wax sticks called Wikki Stix and submit their works of art for prizes. The competition is simply an opportunity for students to be creative and have fun. "It’s fun. It’s wacky. It’s a great diversion from studies,” said Tom Van Wingerden, manager of business services.
The President's Report 2009, "No Greater Task: Hearts and Minds Renewing God's World," is a summary of the past school year on campus and a report on the financial situation of the college. This report, available online, includes a Year in Review that covers events from the discovery of a time capsule found at the site of the new Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex in July 2008, to the speech pathology and audiology program introducing a new master’s degree, only the third in Calvin’s 133-year history, in June 2009.
Health Services has requested that the following information be sent to students today:
The end of the semester is just over a month away, and the next student treat offered will help your student get through exams. The Winter Exam Treat features a reusable storage box filled with tasty goodies and supplies. The order deadline is Wednesday, December 2; the treat will be delivered to on-campus students on Tuesday, December 8. (This treat is included in the "Year of Treats" packages. Parents, please remember that these treats are delivered to the residence hall reception desk and not to the dorm room. Students need to retrieve the treat card from their dorm mailbox and pick up their treat from their dorm reception desk).
The Gospel Choir's mission is to proclaim the word of God in song as members fellowship with one another. While fulfilling this mission, the choir will represent Calvin College and its varied worship styles in a diverse, Christian manner. The choir is open to all students, staff, faculty, and alumni of Calvin College.
