What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
STUDENT LIFE International Relations found here in Helena? by Annie Heffelfmger Intern Writer Who would have thought that someone would come to Helena, Montana for international rela tions? Roman Muzalevskiy has done just that. Roman is a student here for the year to study interna tional relations to take back demo cratic ideas to Kyrgyzstan. “I was shocked at first about coming to Montana but when I found out about the cooperation between our governments all the worries went away,” said Muzalevskiy. He explained that the shock came from not going to a bigger city. However, he is glad to have made the connection to Montana and is amazed at how much it resembles Kyrgyzstan. He was picked along with 143 others from Eurasia to participate in the Eurasia Undergraduate Exchange Program which looks at leadership skills and ability to speak English. Muzalevskiy has studied in the capital of Bishkek for three years on his international relations degree. His goal when he gets back home is to finish his two years and work for a Non Governmental Organization. Not only is Muzalevskiy here for international relations he has joined the Talking Saints speech and debate team here at Carroll to improve his critical thinking, and argumentation skills. He has trav eled to Idaho with the team already and is looking forward to traveling more. Muzalevskiy said his favorite classes are the Developing World and U.S. Foreign Policy, both taught by Dr. Pratt. He said he has always been interested in politics and international relations and that it has been interesting to be in the Roman Muzalevskiy: International student here at Carroll from Kyrgyzstan. United States with the elections going on. “It has been interesting to find out the difference between conser vative and liberal, as well as democrat and republican,” said Muzalevskiy. He said one of the best experi ences he has had so far was Dr. Trebon inviting him over to his house to celebrate Kyrgyzstan’s Independence Day on Aug. 31. Muzalevskiy said he was expect ing a small family dinner but was welcomed by members of the Carroll and Helena community. He said it was overwhelming but an amazing experience and one he will always remember.

Luck of the Irish studying at Carroll by Annie Heffelfmger Intern Writer Michelle McAteer made her way to Helena from Belfast, Ireland on the Business Education Initiative Scholarship Program and is adjusting well to small town life. “You could fit Northern Ireland into Montana 20 times, but there are 1.6 million people, so there is a big difference.” said McAteer. She is an Environmental Science major back home in Ireland. However, the focus of the scholar ship she is on is to learn business and bring the skills back to her home. McAteer’s favorite class so far is her Introduction to Business class. She likes this because it gives her a foundation to start with due to the fact she has had no previous experience in business. McAteer has also enjoyed experiencing the different types of educational sys tems. McAteer enjoyed her Fall Break as she traveled to Yellowstone, Glacier and Portland. She enjoyed seeing the buffalo and elk in Yellowstone, for they are not found in Ireland. “I have studied the Rocky Mountains so it was wonderful to be there in Glacier seeing what I had learned about,” said McAteer. She also has big plans for winter break. McAteer and some of the other Irish students studying all Michelle M c A teer: International student from Ireland. around the United States are plan ning a three-week trip to Miami. She said that she has been to New York and Boston but while she is here would like to travel as much as she can. McAteer’s hopeful her next stop will be L.A., maybe for spring break. When asked what her least favorite thing has been so far, it took her awhile to figuré it out. But she finally decided that it is the higher drinking age. In Ireland the drinking age is 18.
