What is your favorite college memory?

"I had a mullet. I am really proud of it, and glad that I stuck through the time commitment. I am planning on bringing it back for graduation."

If you were an animal what animal would you be and why? "I would be a badger because I took the Harry Potter house test online and got Hufflepuff."

What is your favorite Farrar memory?

"Freshman year, we were in the midst of a prank war with Aagard and decided as a dorm to raid their building. We had an inside man who held the door open for 30 or so Farrarians to rush in, going to all the lobbies and kitchens. We stole couch cushions, vacuum cleaners, even a teapot with warm tea still in it. We then proceeded to run back to Farrar carrying all of our bounty. A campus safety officer stopped us and asked what we were doing, but when we told him we were raiding Aagard, he just gave us a thumbs up and kept driving." What does a Christian community look like to you? "First of all, it’s a group of people who are aspiring towards Christ. Through the common experience of sin and tough things of life, we can pull together despite our differences and faults. Sometimes, we catch glimpses of what it will look like in heaven. The community we have may not be perfect, but we still have chances of seeing what it should look like."

Bekah Allen  Hometown? Kalispell, Montana Major? Business Leadership and Management. What is your favorite college memory? “When I was living the 'Suite life,' my hall mates and I decided to play an ultimate game of 'the floor is lava' – tag edition. We utilized dressers, bunk beds, mattresses on the floor, and the tops of wardrobes to stay out of the lava. The game only ended when someone started bleeding, or peed their pants.” If you were an animal, what would you be and why? “I’ve always thought it would be neat if I could glow, so I would either be a firefly or a scary deep-sea fish.” What is your favorite Aagard memory? “My freshman year we got the most amount of snow that Corban will probably ever see. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but it was a lot of snow… it was the 'snowpocalypse.' My hall decided to take over the upstairs lobby with our mattresses and so we had a four-day sleepover in the lobby. One of the mornings we were even woken up with pancakes plopped on our faces by two of the RA’s at the time: Ellie Bartlow, my RA, and Emma Felzien. It was definitely a gesture of love, though, to wake us up with food.” What does a Christian community look like to you? “A Christian community is a place where people can come together to live life, struggle, and succeed. It is a place to share the joys and heartaches that are inevitably part of being human. These experiences should direct us toward God, and encourage us to encourage others in that direction as well.”

Tyler Reuther Hometown?  Hollister, California What is your major? Intercultural Studies Favorite college memory?  "Walking on campus the first time as a freshman; it felt like home." If you were an animal, what animal would you be and why?  "I would be an eagle, because it is a noble bird." What does a Christian community look like to you?  "A Christian community looks like Corban to me.  A group of men and women coming together for the sake of Christ to share in hurts and victories."

Olivia Wall  Hometown? Salem, OR What is your major?  Political Science Favorite college memory? "When my friends and I snuck into AC when the power was out and got super freaked out by guys hiding in baby masks (heard they were from Balyo, still unconvinced)." If you were an animal what animal would you be and why? "I would be a cat because I like to take naps, I hiss at people, and I bathe in my own saliva." What does a Christian community look like to you? "Christian community is a place where we relate to each other through Christ. I think at Corban we do a really good job of trying to treat people in light of the fact that God intentionally created them with great care and with a purpose." Favorite Fraagard memory? "When a group of us Aagardians went over to Farrar and crashed their hillbilly hot tub and filled it with bubbles. Then we ran away and ambushed them with water balloons!"
