We spoke too soon when we called Walla Walla University the smartest Adventist university in North America. Walla Walla's ranking in the top 600 smartest U.S. colleges in a Business Insider report appeared to make them the only Adventist to attain such a ranking.

The New York Times has written that a collection of artifacts from Jordan on loan to the Siegfried H. Horn Museum on the campus of Andrews University is a coup for the museum. The Times' report indicates that 48 fragments of ceramic figures of humans and horses, possibly religious in nature, will be housed in the Horn Museum for a year. The relics from the 8th to the 6th century B.C. were extracted from sites in Tall Jalul, Jordan over more than a decade, ending in 2012. According to the report, the sharing of artifacts like these is increasingly uncommon.

The Press Enterprise, a regional news organization that covers Southern California's Inland Empire, has written an article about the first Seventh-day Adventist woman to serve as a conference president--Dr. Sandra Roberts.
