"The chance to nurture a love of science in these young people is an invaluable opportunity," said Dr. Frank Steiner, professor and chairman of biology at Hillsdale and an instructor for the molecular biology camp. "It is our hope that students leave the camps with a better understanding and appreciation of the interdisciplinary world of modern science and want to engage it in their own lives." Hosted on the College's campus, the three camps covered a wide range of scientific topics, such as molecular biology, chemistry and physics, and mathematics, studying real-world applications of these subjects such as genetic engineering, nanotechnology, cryptology, and game analysis. All camp attendees had the option to receive college credit from Hillsdale for their intensive week of study by passing an exam at the end of the program. A grant from the Donald L. Murdock Foundation covered the costs of tuition, lodging and meals for the rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors at each of the three camps. Sixty students from 12 states attended. The Summer Science Camps are just a few of the many summer programs Hillsdale College offers to high school students.

Each space features full electrical and sewer hookups, and visitors can utilize the restroom and shower facilities located in the Halter Center's nearby archery building. Guests of the shooting sports center have typically stayed at hotels near Hillsdale College's campus, located five miles from the facilities. With the opening of the parking spaces, visitors can now take full advantage of the various ranges just outside their door. Individuals interested in camping at the Halter Center may reserve a spot for an extended stay in exchange for volunteer work on the range. The RV and camping spaces are part of the lodging facilities that will be developed at the shooting sports center. Several cottages are in the first stages of fund raising, and each would offer lodging for up to 24 individuals during events hosted at the Halter Center. Opened in 2008, the John Anthony Halter Shooting Sports Education Center aims to introduce individuals to and encourage interest in shooting sports. It sits on 113 acres and features ranges for small arms, archery, and shotgun, including Michigan's only Olympic bunker trap. The Halter Center also serves an educational purpose by promoting the ideals of the Constitution and teaching classes for both beginner and experienced shooters. Home to Hillsdale's Shotgun Team and shooting clubs, the Halter Center is also a resource to the public through camps, conferences and other programming.

Black holes can be divided into three classes according to mass. On the low end are those with masses 10 times that of the sun. Examples are the two black holes whose merger generated the first gravitational wave to be detected, by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), an international team including researchers in the School of Physics' Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA). LIGO stands for Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, a facility based in the U.S. On the high end are black holes that are a million times as massive as the sun. Evidence for them comes from NASA images. For the Goldilocks black holes, with masses in between, no hard proof exists to date. Indirect evidence has been offered, but nothing unambiguous so far. A single detection can transform our understanding of the first stars in the universe. As it happens, LIGO has been designed to detect gravitational waves arising from collisions of midsize black holes. A recent study suggests that the Goldilocks of black holes may be uncommon. Analysis of LIGO data collected from September 2015 through January 2016 found no evidence for midsize black holes. However, the work enables scientists to estimate more accurately than ever before the abundance of such black holes. The paper reports a "survey of the universe for midsize-black-hole collisions up to 5 billion light years ago," says Karan Jani, a former Georgia Tech Ph.D. physics student who participated in the study. That volume of space contains about 100 million galaxies the size of the Milky Way. Nowhere in that space did the study find a collision of midsize black holes. "Clearly they are much, much rarer than low-mass black holes, three collisions of which LIGO has detected so far," Jani says. Nevertheless, should a gravitational wave from two Goldilocks black holes colliding ever gets detected, Jani adds, "we have all the tools to dissect the signal." The study was undertaken by hundreds of scientists worldwide belonging to LSC and the Virgo Collaboration, another international team observing gravitational waves from a facility in Italy. Georgia Tech scientists worked on the paper in close collaboration with colleagues from the Albert Einstein Institute Hannover, in Germany; Hillsdale College; Kenyon College;  Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Pennsylvania State University; Radboud University, in the Netherlands; Université Paris Diderot, in France; and the University of Birmingham, in England.

Hillsdale trustee Gunnar Klarr opened the unveiling ceremonies. His words were followed by a brief prayer from Chaplain Adam Rick. The statue was then unveiled by Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn and sculptor Bruce Wolfe, as well as James Nagy, to whose wife's memory the statue is dedicated. After the unveiling, Dr. Lucas Morel, professor of politics at Washington and Lee University, addressed the crowd.  He spoke on the impact of Douglass' life and thought, highlighting the abolitionist's extraordinary loyalty to his country. According to Dr. Morel, although Douglass could have easily rejected America after being born into slavery, he chose instead to dedicate his life to the nation by advocating for freedom and justice. Morel also discussed Douglass' dedication to the study of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bible. Following Morel's remarks, Dr. Arnn explained the importance of the statue and its place on the Liberty Walk. "Douglass looks with resolve at the soldier who paid the price. Lincoln looks at the soldier with solemnity, almost sadness, because, of course, he was the man that gave the command that led to the last full measure of devotion," said Arnn. "Frederick Douglass came here to remind us what a college is. It's not just a proclamation of the evil of slavery. It's a proclamation on the nature of man—of all of us, of what we can do, of what we're made for." Photos of the dedication are available here.
