"Once again Hillsdale students have proven the effectiveness of a classical liberal arts education," added Mark Maier, assistant to the provost. "By providing a benchmark to measure our students' outcomes against the outcomes of their peers at other institutions, the Proficiency Profile allows us to have an accurate gauge of the success of the core curriculum." The Proficiency Profile is akin to a college-level SAT. By testing students in the areas of critical thinking, reading, writing, mathematics, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, the Proficiency Profile helps the College assess its educational initiatives and student performance. "The Proficiency Profile is a recent addition to our General Education Assessment, and supplies a useful element of external benchmarking, given the large number of participants from a wide variety of institutions," said George Allen, director of institutional research. ETS is one of the most widely-recognized and reputable bodies in the country for post-graduate testing, and are the creators of the popular GRE test used by many graduate programs. The Hillsdale students who took the test had an average GPA of 3.47, just slightly higher than the average GPA of the senior class as a whole, and represented a broad cross section of majors.

The annual competition seeks to foster the art of rhetoric and debate, encouraging students to exercise thoughtful and careful reasoning. This year's topic was, "Is the Supreme Court the Final Arbiter of the Constitution?" Murphy's winning argument sought to explain that it is not solely the people, but both the states and people who serve as the ultimate arbiters of the Constitution. "The most important thing in selecting a winner is to discern who argued most convincingly and had the most evidence, because it's the historical content, it's the evidence, that wins us over in the end," said Don Tocco, a friend of Hillsdale College and judge in the competition. "But even with the evidence, you have to have the personal conviction, the enthusiasm, the passion, the energy on the stage to drive that home to the audience." Kyle Huitt and Joshua Hoover were also in the top five finalists selected to compete in this year's Everett Prize.

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.
