May the odds be ever in your favor!


Schedule of Events:

The Cornucopia

Each of the six teams race to the cornucopia in the center of the field and grab whatever they can. Then they try and make a meal out of what they were able to grab! What will it taste like? What will it look like? May the odds be ever in your favor!


The Car Race

Each team must successfully get one of their team members, who is in a decorated and plastic tote, around the Intramural field twice. Who will be the swiftest? May the odds be ever in your favor!


The Arterian

Each team must paint a picture in 5 minutes and sell it to Effie Trinket! Who will she show favor to? Honestly, nobody knows. May the odds be ever in your favor!


The Kajabi Can-Can (Also called the Jalopy Can-Can)

Whoever is left will participate in the Kajabi Can-Can. Look it up. May the odds be ever in your favor!
*Rules for each event will be announced during the event


The last person standing is awarded the golden gas-can (bragging rights), to be hung in the Commuter Lounge and a gas gift card!
The team that has the most members at the Kajabi Can-Can is awarded a $150 gift card to Olive Garden!
The team with the best decorated car for the car show will get a special advantage in the Game!


Martin Luther King Jr. Serve Day

Authentic Love is Serving Humbly – MLK Serve Day 2016

Each year, as the student body of Corban, we go out into our community to serve the Salem area. Walking in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr., serving and leading, we work to fulfill his ultimate goal: to bring glory to God!

We are looking for students, staff and faculty to sign up and volunteer on Monday, January 16th (Martin Luther King Jr. Day).

Volunteer time-slots:

Morning crew (7:30 AM to noon)

Afternoon crew (11:30 AM to 4:00 PM).

Please check out this link to sign up!

This year’s theme:

As we enter this season of service, let us ponder about what freedom is and how Jesus calls us to use our freedoms for His purposes.

A verse to meditate on as a community: Galatians 5:13 (NLT)

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

Join a Mission Trip for a Reach Project!

Is God calling you to step out of your comfort zone?

Revival begins with the student. Is God calling you to help bring revival?
Are you searching for a way to complete a Reach project?


Let’s make an impact for the kingdom of Jesus Christ.


Apply here.

We need students to join the following mission trips to:


Dream Center, L.A. California

The L.A. missions trip is an opportunity to work with the Dream Center. A variety of serving activities are offered including helping with children’s ministry in run down areas of the town, picking up trash, and street ministry. Students get to work alongside those in long-term missions, serving people and sharing the Gospel of Christ.

His Mansion, New Hampshire

This spring break a group of 12 students will be flying to Deering, New Hampshire to join the community of His Mansion Ministry’s. His Mansion is a Christ- centered residential program dedicated to helping men and women overcome debilitating life controlling behaviors such as drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, depression, and sexual addiction. His Mansion’s approach to healing in community is to point people to Christ and His saving grace.
This group will be searving their community of people by cleaning and cooking, working on the farm and best of all building in relationship with those in this season of healing.


 The Utah team will be serving in Ephraim, UT near Snow College. We will be interacting and investing the the lives of many students at the college and hoping to get into conversations that challenge their current lifestyle in Mormonism. We will also be visiting Temple Square in Salt Lake City and serving women and children stuck in polygamous communities. This is a challenging trip but one that is very important. We want to be seed planters for the many (over 90%) of people in these communities who are convinced of the lie of Mormonism.

Buy them a personal care item while you are shopping on Black Friday.

Personal Care Kit





Deodorant (2 men’s, 2 women’s)

Bars of soap

Operation Christmas Child

with No Comments

Image result for Operation Christmas Child

Corban University is collecting shoe-boxes for children world-wide this Christmas. If you would like to bless a child with a gift this Christmas season, fill a shoe-box with gifts!


This would be a great Hall project!


How this process works:


1) Find an average-size shoe-box that is cardboard or plastic. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.


2) Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.


3) Select quality “wow” toys such as dolls, soccer balls with pump, or stuffed animals. Then add other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. (To see a gift suggestion list go here)


4) Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.


5) You don’t have to, but if you want to track where your box goes you can donate $7 online and receive a tracking label to Follow Your Box. Discover the destination of your shoebox gift! What a cool way to see the global impact that a shoe-box can have!


Turn in your shoe-box to the ASB office on the second floor of Schimmel by November 18th. Or send it through the Corban mail system to Reilly Pekkola.
