Thousands of patients, $1.5 million worth of work, and dental treatments ranging from simple dental cleanings to root canals and the making of dentures made up this year’s COMOM, or Colorado Mission of Mercy. Colorado Northwestern dental hygienists were in the midst of it all, helping out on Oct.1 in Colorado Springs. › Continue reading

The CNCC-Rangely campus’ Learning Center is located in Hill Hall. The Center provides students with course help, from teachers and tutors, study halls, and study labs to study groups. › Continue reading
On April 15, CNCC’s Outdoor Recreation Program (ORP) began a four-day journey on the Yampa River. This group of 23 included students, faculty, and river guides. Within this group were a range of people who loved the outdoors, those who knew the Yampa River well, and those who had never been camping. So while this was an annual trip for some, it was an entirely new experience for others.
The group began the trip by meeting in the Weiss parking lot as the sun was coming up at 6 a.m., and everyone hit the road closer to 8 a.m. and drove to the put in at Deer Lodge Park in Dinosaur National Monument.
At this point, most people were quiet or conversing only with their clan.
On April 15, CNCC begins its annual Yampa river trip. Early on this Thursday morning, students, faculty, and river guides will begin the four-day trip down the Yampa River.
Everyone going on the trip will leave the Weiss parking lot at 6:06 a.m., as the sun is coming up, and make the 45-minute drive to Deerlodge Park boat ramp, found upstream of Dinosaur National Monument on Highway 40.
Here, everyone will choose which raft they would like to be in, which guide they will trust in. Unlike last year, where one could choose to be in either a raft or a ducky (inflatable canoe), everyone will be in a raft this year.
During last year’s trip, the group consisted of those who have years of experience on the river and those who had never been on a raft, let alone camping. › Continue reading
Don’t pick up this game unless you are willing to snort (on command) when you laugh, say “thingy“ when referring to dice, cards, or game pieces, or if you are afraid of mimes or miming anything. “Imaginations” Quelf is a hilarious game full of fun and plenty of laughter.
The lost art of having fun while playing a board game is discovered once again as you play one of eight characters: Lugnut, Mrs. Pickle Feather, Batbileg Chinzori, the Dude, Queen Spatula, The Platypus, the Biscuit Farmer and, of course, our friendly Super Ninja Monkey. The goal of the game is to reach the rocket after going on the multicolored road of purple, green, blue, yellow and red. › Continue reading
During the first two weeks of the Spring semester, new and returning students were welcomed by a week’s worth of student activities provided by the CNCC Student Housing staff as well as Student Senate.
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
