Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. —

I like Walla Walla University because I feel accepted here. As a “California Kid” I can wear flip flops in the rain and the people here accept me for who I am. — Elise Nicola, Junior WWU Pre-Dental Hygiene Major.

Take college in four years - rather than five or more.
This shaves off an entire year’s worth of costs - or more - off of our total investment, and is the single biggest thing you can do o keep costs down. And consider this: A student can often earn a bachelor’s degree in less time at a private university than a public university, where classes often fill up and cause delays in graduation for students waiting to get into their required courses.

Anyone who is interested is invited to participate. Entrance into the competition is free, participants just need to bring a completed design as fits the rules outlined in the American Society of Mechanical Engineering bulletin.
Several prizes will be awarded for successful designs. The grand prizes are $100 for first place, $50 for second place, and $25 for third place. Awards of $5 will also be given out to the most awkward, yet successful, design, and the most artistic design.

Sponsored by the Edward F. Cross School of Engineering, this annual event is held in celebration of Engineers Week. The goals of Engineers Week, according to the DiscoverE website, is to “celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world, increase public dialogue about the need for engineers, and bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents.”

An ACA update from Rebecca Casebolt:
"Argentina has been a great blessing and adventure so far. I have made some amazing friends, been to places I only dreamed of visiting, and experienced an entirely different way of life. Learning Spanish has opened so many doors for me, and who knows? Maybe I will come back and spend a few years volunteering in South America."

“Studying abroad, especially at Villa Aurora, where there are only about 20 American ACA students, has been an experience that is truly incomparable to anything else. There is something about being thrown into an entirely new culture and language that draws people together. Not only have I been able to experience so many new and incredibly gorgeous places, had the opportunity to learn the most beautiful language in the world, and eaten so much delicious food, but it also really surprised me how quickly I was able to draw close to those around me here at school. To say we are a “family” sounds clichè, but there’s really no other way to describe the dynamics of my new family here in Italy. I am truly blessed to have been given this opportunity, and I know it will go way too fast.”
