Torch, Spring 1994

CAMPUS NEWS Students work with residents of Jamaica to construct a building for the Caribbean Christian Center for the Deaf. Engineers Win SAE Competition Cedarville Engineering students prepare their Supermileage vehicle for a competition which will be held in June. C edarville Department of Engineering students took first place in the Eaton Student Booth Competition of the International SAE Congress in Detroit in March. Their exhibit displayed the extracurricular activities in which the engineering students are involved. Student teams currently are preparing for the Aero-Design competition at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in May, the Supermileage competition in Kalamazoo, Michigan in June, and the Saturn Hybrid Electric Vehicle competition in Detroit in June. Matching Equipment Grant Met $800,000 1:e $400,000 matching grant offered by a friend of the College for equipment in the Engineering/Nursing/Science Center has been matched by other donors. The generosity of our friends has resulted in $800,000 being given toward equipment to enhance the students ' learning experiences in the new 100,000 square foot laboratory facility. The College will continue to have ongoing needs as special opportunities arise for our students to grow professionally. An example of such an opportunity is the 1994 Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEY) Challenge in which our engineering students were chosen to compete. To convert the car and test the components will require an estimated $100,000 in funding and equipment. The Department of Engineering already has received donated equipment from Saturn Corporation, Honda of America, Exide/NAPA, Sundstrand, Essex Wire, Vernay Labs, and Subaru. Those wishing to have a part in this venture either financially or with equipment may contact the Development Department, 513-766-7810. 4 Torch Students Serve In 15 Countries Uder the direction of Missionary Internship Service (MIS), two teams of students and their leaders served in other countries during the spring break, and 15 groups are preparing to go in the summer. In March, a construction team went to Jamaica to put up a building for the Caribbean Christian Center for the Deaf in Mandeville. The Brass Choir went to Italy to perform in open air and indoor settings to attract people for missionaries to contact. Other ministries took place during the spring break. Working with Habitat for Humanity, a 22-member Cedarville team constructed homes in Mexico City. A Cedarville student involved with a Russian studies program under the Christian College Coalition combined cultural enrichment with ministry opportunities in Nizhni Novgorod and St. Petersburg homes, churches, and institutions. The summer MIS teams include singing teams to Australia, Brazil, and England. Two nursing teams will go to the Central African Republic, and two teams will travel to Hungary to teach English as a second language. Puppet teams will minister in Chile and South Africa, while an engineering team will design and build an electrical control system for ELWA, a Christian radio station in Monrovia, Liberia. Germany and the Ukraine are the destinations for two ministry teams, and a sign language team will minister in a camp for the deaf in Jamaica . Two basketball teams will go-a men 's team to The Philippines and a women 's team to Portugal. MIS has been sending teams to foreign fields since 1971. Through 1993, 1,766 individuals have taken the Gospel to 56 nations through this ministry.
