by Linda Shirlen
During the weekend of March 22-23,
seven prospective students were able to feel
what it was like to be a student at Montreat

dorms and attend classes on Friday. These
students came from Florida, Charlotte, and

to some schools having classes on Satur

beautiful campus in their search for a col

only locally, but around the world. Mon

weekends allow the students to see if
Montreal College is the place for them.
Another opportunity for prospec

is scheduled for April 12. This Fantas

emphasis has been placed on reaching

Students learn about Montreal through
various channels including athletics and
mission organizations. For example,
thanks to Dr. Vaguhn’s (former Presi
dent) work in Kenya with the mission’s
hospital, we have four interested students
from Kenya. We also have two young
men, Liberian refugees, who have ex
pressed interest in Montreal. One is liv
ing in New York and the other in Guinea,
West Africa. The word of our faith and
academics is spreading.”
Magnum also noted students that
were eyeing Montreal from Haiti,
Canada, Trinidad, and Cameroon.

day. The team lost the match at 6-3 overall.
The women’s team experienced their
first dual match Sunday against Clinch Val
ley losing 9-0.

view point over the first two games, “Lenoir
Rhyne was a great team, but 1 gave them a
run for their money.”
Commenting on Clinch Valley, Abel
replied, “They played well, but the score of
the match does not reflect our performance
because 1 believe we gave 100%.”
The men’s team is looking forward
to their further matches. Doubles player

well, it is just that we are playing very good
teams. 1 think that we are getting better with

loosing them.”
