Community Open House Welcomes Community on February 9
Activities for the whole family at CMC Community Open House February 9
Colorado Mountain College Leadville will host a Community Open House on February 9, 2019 from 11am-3pm. The entire community is invited to visit campus and participate in a wide variety of fun and informative activities for all ages.
“CMC is humbled by the level of support it receives from the community,” says Rachel Pokrandt, Vice President & Campus Dean, “We decided to take this opportunity both to thank our supporters and to invite those who may never have interacted with our campus to come up and enjoy lunch and activities with us.”
All activities are free — including lunch from 11:30am-1pm.
Kids’ activities include face painting, arts and crafts, a bouncy house, snowcat rides and meeting Swoop the CMC mascot. Kids and adults alike can participate in the e Race — a math, nerdy-themed 1.7 mile fun run that starts at 11:15am.
All ages can enjoy climbing on the indoor wall, tie-dying a CMC t-shirt, and playing around with an interactive stream table to learn about erosion and how rivers shape the landscape.
Have you been wanting to try out a fatbike? There will be short, guided fatbike rides on the groomed college trails. Space is limited.
Have a student heading off to college soon? Attend the informative financial aid workshop that will guide you through the process of securing funds to pay for college.
Interested in welding? There will be scheduled workshops for ages 16 and up. Welding basics will be demonstrated and you will be able to help make metal art to take home.
Explore the CMC Learning Commons, get your library card and participate in some fun activities that will help you find the perfect book to check out.
Community members are invited to share poetry, both original and unoriginal, at a Poetry Share. Two sessions will be offered in the Learning Commons at 11am and 1pm.
In addition, you can take a free workshop on Google Docs and Google Drive at 2pm; learn about Geographic Information Systems (GIS) with an interactive scavenger hunt; attend an information session about CMC’s Bachelor in Elementary Education program; learn to tie knots; check out pond water through a microscope and take home some tips on sharpening knifes.
“We are looking forward to sharing our amazing programs with the Lake County community,” says Rachel, “We hope as many people as possible come and interact with our wonderful students, faculty and staff on February 9.”
