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.
Pagen Trinity and Borromeo name new advisors New professor likes Carroll atmosphere By DREW RILEY Prospector S taff Writer Three seniors and one junior were named as the Community Advisors in Trinity and Borromeo Halls. Incoming senior biology major Kevin Hilborn is the only CA returning to the staff. Incoming seniors Kevin Jam, a history and political science major, and Jen Enge, a French and TESOL major, will join Hilborn. Incoming junior Dani Allen will be the CA in'Borromeo Hall. “I’m very excited about next year,” said the buildings’ Residential Assistant, Shiloh Sullivan. Hilborn is also excited about working with a new staff. “This year has been awesome, but next year should be great, too,” Hilborn said. Hilborn will be the CA on Trinity’s first floor, while Jam will take the duties on the second floor and Enge will run the third floor. Allen will be the sole CA in Borromeo Hall. Enge is currently studying abroad in Montpellier, France. CAs are selected through an application process including an interview and a group session. Compensation for the posi tion includes a free room and a monthly paycheck. Though there are no gender re quirements for the Trinity/Borro staff, a balanced staff is desirable, said Sullivan. Sullivan said that having Hil born on the staff will help the new CAs learn the trade. “Kevin knows the ex pectations, and common sense comes into play a lot, too,” Sullivan said. Sullivan listed the strengths of next year’s group as outgoingness and popularity. “They already know most of the students, so there won’t be that learning curve to over come,” Sullivan said. Challenges may arise in scheduling difficul ties and in the fact that the incoming CAs like to have fun, though this year’s staff has overcome those same problems, said Sullivan. “Once you get them focused, they do great work,” said Sul livan. Hilborn doesn’t think having fun will get in the way. “We’re all friends, and we plan to make next year fun for all of our residents, especially the se niors,” Hilborn said. // This year has been awesome, but next year should be great, too. —Kevin Hilborn, senior CA // Attention Carroll College students and faculty.

By TRENT BOLGER Prospector S taff Writer Which would be easier: being an instructor or a student? “Being a student prepares you well to be a faculty member,” said Gillian Glaes. As a new instructor at Carroll, Glaes has experienced both the challenges of being a student and the new challenges of being an instructor recently. “Both [roles] can be demanding at times,” she says. “I went from a campus of 17.000 [students] to a campus of 60.000 and then to Carroll,” said Gillian Glaes, a new instructor for the history department. “I wanted to work at a small liberal arts col lege.” While Glaes worked on her doc toral research, in history, at The University of Wisconsin-Madi- son, she had to “ride a scooter or a bus to classes,” but now she walks to classes at Carroll, as an instructor. The small intimate community at Carroll is, “more spiritual, which I like,” she commented. Glaes is currently planning a few classes for the fall semester. She will be offering Latin Ameri can history and Gender history. The class offered in Latin Ameri can history meets a global diver sity credit. The Gender history class will be part of the Gender Studies minor. In addition to those classes she will also be offering “History of Europe to 1870” this fall and the “History of Europe since 1870” next spring. The location of Carroll is great for her. Glaes is an outdoors enthusiast. She enjoys downhill skiing, cross country skiing, back packing, fly fishing, and rafting. Glaes has backpacked into the wilderness in 4 different states. Glaes wants Carroll to know, “I’m having a great time,” said Glaes, “it has been fun so far.
