College ready to welcome students to a new school yearPosted: August 21, 2012
College of the Rockies is ready to welcome more than 2,000 new and returning students on Tuesday, September 4.
Tuesday is set aside for students to orient themselves, get a locker, meet their classmates, get their student ID cards, buy textbooks and have some fun. Day and evening classes will start on Wednesday, September 5.
At the Cranbrook Main Campus, Manager of Campus Life and Athletics Cori Andrichuk noted, “The day kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and muffins in the gym, followed by a welcome and announcements, orientation and information sessions. The afternoon will be a ton of fun with a free BBQ for college students and employees featuring a live band and the must-be-seen-to-be-believed ‘Fly on the Wall’ competition where teams duct-tape one member to a wall to see who stays up the longest.”
“Welcome Week continues right through until Sunday, September 9,” Andrichuk continued. “There are lots of activities scheduled for students and employees throughout the week including a fun volleyball tournament, a bowling and pizza night, access to the climbing wall and a chance to experience the thrill of a white water rafting trip.”
Executive Director of College Relations and Marketing, Donna Kraus-Hagerman added, “Our students primarily come from the Kootenay region, however, we also attract learners from across Canada and around the world. We actively recruit students by promoting the East Kootenay lifestyle, our friendly communities, our lower tuition and smaller class sizes, our excellent faculty and staff at all our campuses, and the wide variety of programs we offer.
“Our excellent faculty is very qualified and this is recognized across the province. Our support staff is knowledgeable, helpful and truly professional in every way. We are extremely fortunate to have such dedicated faculty and staff whose sole purpose is to help students succeed. And this all starts right from Day One, Tuesday, September 4,” Kraus-Hagerman concluded.
