Colorado Northwestern Community College on Saturday experienced one of their most successful student orientation days to date, the college reported in a news release.

The Craig and Rangely campuses welcomed new students who met with CNCC faculty and staff as they prepared to get their college careers under way.

“Over 80 students along with faculty, staff, student government officers and volunteers hosted the students as they toured the new (Craig) 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,” said Pam Gardner, Craig Campus Dean of Instruction, in the release. “There was high energy and expectation as the new semester begins.”

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 activities on time management, healthy choices, diversity, resources (set up emails), campus tours, and also an introduction to the CNCC Challenge Course, the release stated.

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, which puts enrollment up nearly 40 percent from last year, according to CNCC President Russell George.
