Students involved in Colorado Northwestern Community College’s Horsemanship/Horse Management Program and Horsemanship Club held their Gymkhana and the Ag Olympics on Oct. 17. It brought students and community members together for what many felt was a fun event.
“I believe the event went well,” Horsemanship Instructor and Program Director Brandon Velie said. “The students worked very hard to get everything set up, and I believe everyone who attended had a great time.”
A gymkhana is defined as “competitive games on horseback,” according to the “Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary.” › Continue reading
Each year, millions of high school students focus on social events, the latest trends, and getting away from their parents. Yet some students are not as concerned with these things as with getting ahead while still in high school. As a dual enrollment student at both Rangely High School and CNCC, Blake Wanstedt is one of them.
CNCC works with other high schools in the county, including Hayden, Hotchkiss, Moffat County, Delta, Meeker, South Routt, and Rangely. In some cases, instructors go down to the high schools and teach the classes there. In other cases, the student comes to the campus and, in that case, the student will need a permission slip from a parent or guardian.
Dual enrollment credits that apply to both Rangely High School and Colorado Northwestern graduation requirements give high school students an opportunity to receive college credit while still in high school.
Jim DeLung, CNCC’s director of counseling and career planning, says that the program is beneficial. › Continue reading
Hey, guess what? Christmas is in DecemberMichelle Snowden Reporter
The signs of fall are all around us, with the new crisp weather and trees dropping their leaves, changing from green to vibrant yellows and oranges. A week’s worth of Halloween events have been planned for students at CNCC to enjoy this unique fall celebration.
So why, if it is so obviously October, are there Christmas lights up in the library, outside of Ross Hall, and in stores? Why do you see Christmas decorations and advertisements in the majority of stores?
Christmas is 56 days away. Halloween and Thanksgiving have yet to come before that day of giving gifts to those you love, spending time with family, or having a religious experience. Which is what Christmas is all about, right? › Continue reading
The Outdoor Recreation Program is one aspect of the college that is being changed through Vision 2010 in order to improve the student experience at Colorado Northwestern. Vision 2010 is a revisioning of different aspects of CNCC, from programs to technology.
A big aspect of all of Vision 2010 is incorporating more of the environment into the student experience, and Vision organizers hope that ORP trips will help make that happen.
“Students might come here for the outdoor opportunities the college has; they need to have the best educational experience we can provide,” CNCC Vice President of Instruction David Smith stated.
As a result, the ORP committee for Vision 2010 is trying to bring more students into the ORP programs. › Continue reading
In the month of Halloween, people are always looking for the spooky, the spectacular and, of course, the just plain weird to experience. Chris Carter, who calls himself The Mentalist, is one person who fits all of the above categories. › Continue reading

According to the “Colorado Collegiate Handbook,” nearly every college and university in Colorado requires first year students to live in the residence halls, as well as have a meal plan. The problem is that, for some students, it may not be worth the some thousand dollars a semester that could be used for groceries.
Here at CNCC, students are not required to live in the residence halls, but with some students living so far away from home, it’s easier to live there than go through the hassle of finding a place in town. › Continue reading
On Sept. 16-18, the Northwest Colorado Rural Philanthropy Days (RPD) was held in Steamboat Springs and Colorado Northwestern Community College.

”Duplicity” is a 2009 movie starring Julia Roberts and Clive Owen as Clair and Ray, a couple of corporate spies in love who are out to make over $40 million. This film is designed to make the brain work a little too hard after a long day and is best left alone unless there is nothing better to watch. › Continue reading
Sometimes receiving good grades is the least of your concerns when you are failing a class. Midterms are right around the corner, so getting that passing grade is crucial if you want to get the credit hours you deserve.
But burying your nose in a book or studying until four in the morning doesn’t have to be your only option when you are failing.
When students are failing, the simple solution would be to ask the instructor for help, but for students, that may not be that easy. › Continue reading
