RANGELY I Colorado Northwestern Community College experienced one of their most successful student orientation days to date Saturday, Aug. 18. The Rangely and Craig Campuses welcomed new students who mingled with CNCC faculty and staff as they prepared to get their college careers underway. The Rangely Campus was a sea of red as everyone associated with the orientation wore CNCC T-shirts for the day’s activities. New students went through a series of welcome sessions that included information on time management, healthy choices, diversity, resources (set up emails), campus tours and also an introduction to the CNCC Challenge Course. The admissions office is still working on the new student numbers, but the numbers currently sit at approximately 170 new students on the Rangely campus and 74 new students on the Craig campus. Pam Gardner, Craig campus dean of instruction reported “more than 80 students along with faculty, staff, student government officers and volunteers hosted the students as they toured the new campus, set up emails, registered for classes, accomplished a team goal, ate pizza (generously provided by the Craig student government officers) and received student IDs. There was high energy and expectation as the new semester begins.”
